Miller, Stone and Mitchell doe a bang-up job of giving us a clear picture of many of the events that transpired in the 10 years prior to 9-11 that - if someone had been able to connect all the dots they MIGHT have been able to prevent the attack.
It's not a condemnation or a finger-pointing expose. The book isn't stating that anyone necessarily slipped up it's just that there were tons of indicators that, in hindsight, could have predicted this.
Well written and not too long. If you want to learn about some of this history and don't want to read 30 different books - this one will do it.

This is a rather superficial and in some instances unsubstantiated overview of what led up to 9-11. Compared with "The looming tower", it pails in comparison. The reader pronounces names in ways that are very different from what I am used to, so not sure if these are alternative pronunciations, or if he just can't pronounce arabic names, but this was a distractions. Furthermore, this is essentially the authors view on things. for instance, he says the US governement had several opportunities to stop the embassy bombings, but does not substantitate what these where. I found it a good quick read and a valuable second outlook compared with "The Looming Tower", but I found the other work much more comprehensive, better researched, and more substantitve.
