The Looming Tower

I just added to my Kindle.

Published in 2005 and now a Hulu series but this is about the book.

I have heard good things a few time over the years but never bothered to pick up until now. Anyone read this before?

A searched showed it mentioned several times in the "What are you reading?" thread but without commentary.

Dry, but extremely informative regarding all the stuff that led up to the alliance between Zawahiri and bin Laden. So many tiny things had to go a very certain way for the chain of events that led to 9/11 to remain unbroken. It will blow your mind how close it was to never happening.
