Publisher Description

From the author of the New York Times bestselling Holy War, Inc., this is the definitive account of the decade-long manhunt that killed the world’s most wanted man, Osama bin Laden.

Al Qaeda expert and CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen paints a multidimensional picture of the hunt for bin Laden over the past decade, including the operation that killed him. Other key elements of the book will include:

A careful account of Obama’s decision-making process as the raid was planned

The fascinating story of a group of CIA analysts—largely women—who never gave up assembling the tiniest clues about OBL’s whereabouts

The untold and action-packed history of the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and the SEALs

An analysis of what the death of OBL means for al Qaeda, and for Obama’s legacy. 

Just as Too Big to Fail captured, in riveting detail, the anatomy of this decade’s financial disaster, so too is Manhunt one of the key stories of this decade: the authoritative, immersive account of the operation that killed the man who organized the largest mass murder in American history.

Solid read

Highly recommended for anyone who's interested in global current affairs or wants an insight into how big decisions are made in the White House. It reads like a suspense novel. My plan was to listen to this book over the course of a week or two on the way to work but I finished it in 2 days. Only four stars because I thought it was a little too short (although the details are rich) and because the narrator decided it was a good idea to do Pakistani accents when quoting someone from that part of the world.... seriously dude... stick to english.
