    Want to know how the terrorists think? Buy this book.

    A spectacular exposition on terrorists, who they are, how they think, what they want....and not just the Middle Eastern type...all of them. I believe the predictions at the end of the book are mandatory reading for all of America, before we slide into the same morass that Northern Ireland and Israel find themselves in daily. Great book. Should be required reading for all Americans. Buy this book!

    A Rational Treatment of an Irrational World

    On the subject of terrorism, this book is a gold nugget among the general pile of rubbish on the subject. It is concise, balanced, intelligent, and -- wonder of wonders -- filled with hard, practical, real-world sense. The author knows his field and writes with to the point economy. You will find much of what you've been told is nonsense and much of what you haven't been told enlightening. This is not a book for or by the Chicken Little kooks in our midst. Dr. Clayton combines technical information with common sense. Worth reading, especially if the thought has crossed your mind that things could get serious. You may find you've been worrying about the wrong things. And what to do about the right ones!
