    Peter Bergen, has been on the bin Laden beat for a long time, most notably since he interviewed the al-Qaeda leader in 1997. He has reported the exploits of Osama for the full arc of his career, from freedom fighter for the Afghanis against the Soviet invader, through the rise to infamy of al Qaeda, from training Somalis in the use of RPG, to training thugs and fanatics to seize commercial airliners to dark purpose. Now he writes about the Osama we have not seen, mostly because he has had to rem [...]

    "White House Situation Room" - 4:06 pm on May 1, 2011 - Fotografia do norte-americano Pete Souza - descendente de portugueses - os avós emigraram dos Açores.“Caça ao Homem, Os Dez Anos de Caça a Bin Laden desde o 11 de Setembro até Abbottabad” de Peter L.

    I'm keeping my review simple.Holy Shit!!!!!!!!Interpret as you will.Update - I decided this book deserved more.My ThoughtsWe know the beginning of this story - the horror of 9/11. We know the middle - the ongoing search for bin Laden, the reported sightings (described as - “Where’s Waldo”) and the occasional released propaganda video confirming bin Laden’s continued existence. We know the end - bin Laden is killed. So I have to ask myself - why read this book?Here’s the answer. The aut [...]

    My CNN colleague Peter Bergen's book on the hunt for Osama bin Laden is gripping. Bergen is staggeringly brilliant, meticulous, level-headed -- and writes clearly and factually with understated power, yet still manages on-target stabs of droll humor like this characterization of bin Laden's dull successor, Ayman al-Zawahiri, calling him "a black hole of charisma."According to Bergen, there was never 100 percent certainty among President Obama's advisors and intelligence analysts that bin Laden w [...]

    Most of us already know the story of bin Laden's capture, so it wasn't any particular interest in the subject matter that led me to this book. I'd just finished Bergen's United States of Jihad: Americans Fighting for Radical Islam--from al-Qaeda to ISIS when this book became available in audio at my library. Bergen is an exceptional journalist--he writes with a comprehensiveness that a reader can appreciate. Most any question you can think of is answered, and many you did not think to ask.What w [...]

    Mostly very informative, but also a bit exciting, since it's not a fiction book. The author mentions very many persons, which makes it less of an page-turner, and more an appraisal to the contributors of the raid. Still very interesting reading

    One night, almost 12 years ago, I was relaxing on the sofa in our house with my mom here in the Philippines. We turned on the TV and saw on CNN that one of the World Trade Center Towers in New York City was on fire. The reporters on the scene were saying that a plane had just crashed into one of the towers. Damn, we thought. A freak accident.Minutes later, the second plane crashed into the South Toweren another report of a plane hitting the Pentagond anotherIt was September 11, 2001. A day of in [...]

    This book will keep you riveted, cover to cover. It's a powerful story. It's told with a minimum number of acronyms and bureaucratic jargon. Peter Bergen's knowledge of his topic shines through.The heart of the book is the was long and detailed planning for the final operation. As important as the mission was planning for Pakistan's response to its success or failure. There was advance negotiating for alternative air rights in the event of retaliation by closing US access to Afghanistan. The US [...]

    Say what you like about the book, you have to love the ending. Bergen lays out the details of the ten year effort to improve the world by taking out international scumbag and world's worst suburban neighbor Osama Bin Laden. Bergen's writing style leans more journalist than story-telling but give him credit in two major areas. First, he pulls off the neat trick most successfully done in Ron Howard's retelling of the "Apollo 13" mission of wringing tension and drama out of a story despite the fact [...]

    A well-researched and engagingly written history of the long search for Osama Bin Laden. I’m tempted to give it five stars, but I have two complaints. First, at several points the author reveals an anti-Bush and pro-Obama bias. At some points I found myself agreeing with him, and I am more willing after reading the book to give the Obama administration more credit for getting OBL than I had before. President Obama has taken a much more aggressive approach to exterminating terrorists than I rea [...]

    Manhunt by Peter L. Bergen has a lot of information on the search to find Bin Laden after the 9/11 tragedy. This book contains information such as where Bin Laden was staying and how his life had changed after going into hiding. His high lutenists are being found and captured by the Americans, while he is in a 12 foot high building still plotting how to take down the United States . Manhunt also contains important details about the decisions President Obama had to make that lead to the capture o [...]

    On September 11, 2001, America was attacked by the Islamic extremist group, Al-Qaeda. 9/11 was a series of plane hijackings led by Osama bin Laden. Manhunt, by Peter L. Bergen, tells the story of the planning, execution, and aftermath of the attacks. However, Bergen primarily focuses on the aftermath- the search for Osama bin Laden. Bergen gives a thorough account of the sequence of events that led to the finding and death of Osama bin Laden. The story of 9/11 can be complex. However, Bergen te [...]

    By Peter L. Bergen. Grade: B+Non-fiction and History are a strange combination that requires intense solitary writing and profound research. 'Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden--from 9/11 to Abbottabad’ is an example of a book that will take you step-by-step, event-after-event, right from September 11,2001 to May 2,2011 - the day the world's most wanted man was successfully killed. The book is based on the exhaustive research by Peter L. Bergen and the exceptional access to White House [...]

    We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.

    Peter Bergen has done it again. Just a little over a year after he published his stellar history of the war between the US and al-Qaeda (The Longest War), he comes back with this. Bergen is already well known as the expert's expert when it comes to bin Laden; his books are surely on many policymakers' shelves (and more than a few CIA agents' shelves, too, I'd imagine). He has consistently been able to get the scoop on almost every other Western journalist when it comes to bin Laden, beginning wi [...]

    Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden From 9/11 to Abbottabad by Peter L. Bergen"Manhunt" is the riveting and insightful ten-year pursuit of America's most wanted man. Best-selling author and acclaimed security analyst Peter L. Bergen provides the most thorough and discerning account of what actually went down and the people behind the manhunt of Bin Laden. This well-researched book reads like a good spy novel and offers keen insight that only a person as well-connected and methodical as Be [...]

    This a thoroughly well researched book by a CNN journalist who was able to interview Osama Bin Laden in Afghanistan during the 1990s. Despite the raid to kill Osama being perhaps the biggest news of our decade, much of the back story is still little known by the general public. The author did a good job telling the story of the ten year search for the world’s most wanted man, focusing mainly on the characters of politicians, high ranking military officers and senior level intelligence official [...]

    This book is about as straightforward as it gets. The title tells it all and the opening epigraph sets the tone:"We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm." —ATTRIBUTED TO WINSTON CHURCHILL "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust a [...]

    Peter Bergen’s Manhunt is by far the best book that I have read on the hunt for Osama bin Laden. Bergen was a CNN reporter who personally met bin Laden for an interview in 1997, wrote a biography of bin Laden, and continued to follow his trail until that trail ended in May 2011. After the bin Laden raid, Bergen traveled to Abbottobad, and was granted permission to personally tour the compound and see where bin Laden was killed. Manhunt takes the reader through a biographical journey of bin Lad [...]

    It doesn’t get more “Cloak and Dagger” than this and its’ a true story. Bin Laden was surely the most sought after villain and mass murderer in modern history and we are given a dramatic account of it in Peter Bergen’s book.We are presented with a C.I.A. that made mistakes but was relentless in its’ 11 year pursuit of Bin Laden (well much more than 11 years, but after 9/11 the quest became fundamental). It is also interesting that there were a substantial number of women in the C.I.A [...]

    Manhunt by Peter Bergen is the account of the hunt for Osama bin Laden from many different perspectives. The book starts with the infamous 9/11 attacks that brought America to its knees and held the world’s attention. Instead of staying around the time of the attacks the book moves on how the ten year search for Osama was conducted behind the scenes. Peter Bergen then continues to tell the tale of the brave men and women of the Navy seals and the raid on Osama bin Laden which is awe inspiring. [...]

    A quick read. Bergen's familiarity with his subject shows (with particular contempt for the Taliban's Mullah Omar, "a dim-witted fanatic with significant delusions of grandeur." Much of the story has already been told, from bin Laden's escape from Tora Bora (told by the pseudonymous Dalton Fury in Kill bin Laden), and of course, the climactic raid on bin Laden's Abbottabad compound (in No Easy Day by Matt Bissonnette). The meat of the book is in the CIA's hunt for bin Laden, featuring a surprisi [...]

    After watching Zero Dark Thirty, I wanted to know more about the back story of getting Bin Laden and this book completely delivers in amazing detail. You feel like you're sitting in the room for those tense deliberations about how to go into Abbottabad. They had 4 potential courses of action. Some of my favorite bits I learned were1) Obama's first call after learning they killed Bin Laden was to President Bush2) The SEAL team had contingency plans for almost every situation, yet the one thing th [...]

    A well written account of the long, tedious search for Osama Bin Laden. I give the book at least 4.5 stars. And I seriously doubt there is a more qualified journalist to tell this story than Peter Bergen. He was a foreign correspondent/producer for CNN For a number of years in from the mid 1980's into the 2000's. In 1997 he famously produced the first on-air interview of Bin Laden, filmed in Afghanistan, in which Bin Laden declared war on the U.S. He has written extensively about terrorism, al-Q [...]

    No doubt this was a compelling read--I'm glad I picked it up on a weekend when I could read it straight through. Presumably because of Bergen's deep immersion in his sources, he offers several details I hadn't read before, such as the heavily female composition of the CIA's original Bin Laden unit ("[Women] seem to have an exceptional knack for detail, for seeing patterns and understanding relationships") and the apparent truth behind Pakastani officials' ignorance that Bin Laden was residing in [...]

    this is really a magazine article streched into a full length book. what most disappointed me about it (besides the rush job to try and capitalize on the event) is that bergen offers not real contemplation on the idea of our soveriegn nation, shooting to kill, in a mission that sounded as if it was assasination all the way. he also breezes right on by the wife and brother of the courier who were shot and killed, not really explining why they shot them. i guess it felt like an outline of the even [...]

    It's a quick read, but a more accurate name of the book would probably be Tora Bora and Abbottabad, as there really isn't much detail about where he was in the intervening years. The narrative around the raid on the compound is of course compelling, but also didn't feel exceptionally more detailed than what already published reports in the Times and elsewhere captured. That said, writing and pacing are good and it's worth picking up if you haven't read much about the raid yet.

    Close to a 5 star. New York Times reporter details the US government's search and killing of Osama Bin Laden. Very straight-forward.

    Felt like it had more of an "insider" feel than other UBL books I've read, but not as satisfying to read as "The Finish" by Mark Bowden.
