Most people think the war on terrorism began on September 11th. As this book will tell you, this is nowhere near the truth. Comprehensive and interesting, The Cell keeps up a pace which holds the readers interest, never slipping into the trap of endless lists of names or dates. Occasionally the author's familiarity with the cases can result in a reader stumbling over who exactly is who, but its a small quibble. Look behind the scenes on the war, and see the chain of events which molded Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda.
