The Looming Tower

The Looming Tower is the first book I have read about Al-Qaeda and the 9-11 attack, and it is amazing. Lawrence Wright writes in a narrative format that is extremely accessible. The names are complicated and sometimes difficult to keep up with; but the author includes a detailed guide to each principle character and extensive notes at the end of the book. I can strongly recommend this book to every thinking American who wants to better understand the world we actually live in.
