On the eve of the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City, Osama bin Laden is still a vivid symbol of outrage and tragedy in the American imagination. One of the most-recognized faces of terror, bin Laden has presented himself to the world as a paragon of ascetic virtue. Journalist Adam Robinson tells a far different story. This authoritative biography lifts bin Laden’s mask of moral purity as it recounts his transformation from dissolute rich kid into terrorist mastermind. Drawing on information from members of bin Laden’s own family and extensive independent research in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Oman, Libya, and Pakistan, Robinson opens a window into the man who changed the face of global politics.

It gives a method for critical thinking, shows how to spot gaps in understanding and fill them, and it does this in a highly motivating and visual style." -ROY GRUBB, principal editor of WikIT, the mind mapping wiki "Concise Learning is a wonderful tool for teachers and students. The brain remembers visuals and turning short-term memories into long-term memories is what learning is about. Previewing, participating, and processing information engages learners and offers them the information they need to rehearse memories and to retrieve them. [Toni] has done a great job in organizing this book to help us organize our brains for success!" - MARILEE SPRENGER, author of How To Teach So Students Remember
