This short book gives some excellent recap of Bin Laden and the global war on terror. The authors provide a variety of viewpoints and the book does not espouse one specific ideology. Most importantly, the chapters, especially the first one by Andrew Exum, manage to explain a complicated issue in a manner that is accessible to the layperson while still remaining reasonably accurate to the scholarly sources. This is a book that everyone with an interest in US policy towards AfPak and the global war on terror should read.

This is a well-compiled, well-authored, sufficiently-full-of-people-whose-names-and-public-profiles-prove-they-know-what-they're-talking-about e-book.
Bing West with some good strategic advice from a guy whose been there done that and Andrew Exum and Richard Haass who give some more than adequate insights based on their extensive experience on Middle-Eastern and Islamic issues.
As with all books like this which comment on major public events immediately after they have occurred, this compilation could benefit from a good "simmering", allowing time for the proceeding events to play themselves out and for the writers involved to more carefully peruse and analyse the information available IOT give the best critical analysis imaginable. This is not saying bad things about the quality of the writing. It is merely saying that this book is set to be a money-maker because of its proximity to the events though the sheer haste in which it was written may be to the detriment (here, I am happy to be proven wrong) of the text's quality.
This is all a la the ridiculous amount of Assange and Wikileaks books that materialised in bookshops immediately after the explosion of the Assange rape controversy... some of its good, some of it could benefit from an extra 2 minutes on the stove.
Nevertheless, a good read, and slightly undercooked or not, I guzzled it up greedily.

There is also an authorized and reviewed Portuguese edition (Para Além de Bin Laden, Ed. D. Quixote, Lisbon), containing more extended essays, including the first operational account of the Abbotabad raid (so almost two years before the SEAL book and the controversial Hollywood script), focusing not only on tactics and equipment, but also the political and intelligence background in preparing the complex operation.

Too bad that Joe Biden divulged Team 6 twenty minutes after sworn to secrecy in the situation room. SEALs do not look for accolades, but politically this helped get Obama re-elected, but the Team guys didn't want to be recognized. Dull and boring read.
