    Changed my perception of President Obama for the better.

    Although about 100 pages of this e-book are dedicated to photos and reference notations, the book itself was very informational and easy to read. I don't normally agree with President Obama on much, but this book shows him to be a dedicated fighter in the war on terrorism, and I'm totally onboard with that.

    Interesting details...

    If you are already familiar with the hunt for bin laden from other readings, the main events described here will not be news to you. Where this book differentiates itself is in some of the details it provides of the events that took place behind the scenes among the main players. That alone made it a worthwhile read.

    Excellent read by a well-known expert in the field.

    Very insightful and thoughtful description of the house where Bin Laden was found, the conditions, and other nuances not often known or reported in the media.

    Manhunt

    A nice summation of the hunt for UBL. Sometimes I felt like I was reading the CNN condensed version, but it is well researched and competently written, if not quite politically unbiased. Good backstory on bin Laden. People who have read "No Easy Day" will find this interesting, as the author of this book disputes "Mark Owen's" firsthand account of the raid on the compound.

    Highly recommend.

    Very good book. I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about one of the most hated men in history and the hunt to bring him to justice.

    Informative

    I am half way through the book as I write this. I had been curious as to how they went about finding Bin Laden and this book does answer all of my questions. There were times when I felt that it got off track, but overall it was good. As I said in my first sentence, I am half way through the book . . . . now my durn Nook broke!

    I really enjoyed this book from start to finish.  It really kept me interested like I was reading a whodunit thriller in which I had to keep reminding myself that it was real life.  Very well researched.  I couldn't put it down.

    Recommended for a Bin Laden history buff.

    Well written and very thorough. I had trouble keeping track of the Muslim names.

    A fascinating walk through an obscure event.

    This well written documentary traces the path of Bin Laden through all of its stages, up to and including all the "gum shoe" work that went into locating and, finally, killing him. It is well written, easy to understand, and fascinating to follow the thread as it winds its way to Bin Laden's demise.
