a well written book easy to read for the average adult. Author Bowden goes into details on the politics of the hunt for UBL including sections on Obama and his outlook on hunting down UBL as well as his promise to go into Pakistan if high value targets found there, and the use of drones to kill terrorists in Yemen and Pakistan. The actual raid/killing of UBL is not as detailed as the book written by the SEAL who wrote under a pen name and was on the raid and fired shots into UBL body killing him. I am always interested in any book about the killing of UBL and details of the operation, due to my obsession with the termination of the terrorist who financed and coaxed the hijackers into attacking America on Nine Eleven. I want to know a lot about how justice was done and UBL was killed cowering in his bedroom hiding behind his youngest wife.

In one of the first nonfiction accounts of the lengthy & successful hunt for Osama Bin Laden Mark Bowden recounts the search without leaving any important details out. But in way too many details make it a difficult, at times, read for me. It was okay but Hue 1968 is Bowden's best work. Still, the last chapter on how the raid went is up to Zero Dark Thirty.

Nice read, well edited, some good interview and quote information. I had read some other books about this raid and other than tow or three items, did not find much new information.

Informative, doesn't cover the differences in the story and leaks, but we'll worth reading.

Not much in the book that I hadn't already read about in other accounts.

I recommend Peter Bergen's "Manhunt". This book offers nothing new and leaves me wondering why it was written at all.

Good book. It differs from some other accounts of the raid, but still a good book.
