This book isn't too surprising overall - it provides a road map on how to commit terrorism anywhere possible, but especially in the Middle East. There are a few surprises, though: Osama Bin Laden encourages Al Qaida to recruit Roman Catholics who have been disaffected by the sex and financial scandals that have plagued the church; he advises the group to stop sending videos and manifestos to Al Jazeera and instead use more "neutral" outlets, such as ABC and CBS and the Canadian global security analyst Gwynne Dyer; he provides an early analysis of the Arab Spring and where it should have been headed (but turns out never was); and he decries the Islamic State at its embryonic stages in 2011, just weeks before OBL was killed. No doubt there are a treasure trove of letters and e-mails that remain classified, but the handful in this book shows just how far some were willing to create a caliphate, even if not of the kind envisioned by ISIS.
