  • I read this book when it first came out for a number of reasons: I was able to see smoke from the Twin Towers from my office in Stamford Ct. I also was able to see the second plane crash into the second tower on live TV. Like most American's that day we were mesmerized by the horrific and infamous acts of these religious zealots; I worked with John O'Neil and knew him while we were both executives at FBIHQ and had just recently attended a lecture/presentation he gave on the attack of the USS Col [...]


  • This is the story of "the man who warned America",a man who died for what he believed in. John O'Neil valiantly and tirelessly fought for our national security by warning his office and our government about Bin Laden's impending threats. His warnings which may have enabled us to protect our country against 9/11 fell on the deaf ears of the FBI, CIA, Clinton and Bush. On September 11, 2001, John O'Neill ran into the burning twin towers to help save lives. He lost his. He was a brave soul and a tr [...]


  • Not bad. I first read about O'Neill in Lawrence Wright's The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11. This is an excellent companion to Wright's book, but it is very old (2003). The book doesn't mention Ali Soufan by name. The author hates Clinton's guts and asserts that the Monica Lewinsky affair distracted him from bin Laden. That's debatable.The book details O'Neill's FBI career. The main story is his job as section chief for counterterrorism and his role in various pre-9/11 al-Qaeda inv [...]

  • This book by Murray Weiss is essentially a biography of retired FBI agent John O'Neill. It covers in great detail the rise of O'Neill through the ranks of the FBI and how he became the most knowledgeable and dedicated expert in the field of international terrorism and its threat to the United States. Murray spells out how Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda became an obsession for O'Neill and eventually how that obsession saved lives in the United States and throughout the world.The book details how po [...]


  • The book was interesting and informative. My one complain was he author did not separate the difference from Osama bin Laden and the bin Laden family, he seemed to make in all in the same, which from what I've read in other sources is wrong since the bin Laden family does not agree with Osama. Other than that if it was good, if the reader is interested in the US's response to jihad terrorism. The book is about John O'Neill so it goes into his personal life. He has a whole string of mistresses, s [...]


  • We all now know the United States intelligence "community" completely missed it when it comes to 9/11. John O'Neill didn't. He saw it coming like a freight train on fire. O'Neill was one of those deeply flawed visionaries driven to the point of excess yet possessing that rare ability to connect even the faintest of dots. He tried to save his country from the devastation. Sometimes the most important prophets are ignored. If you want to know why the warnings were ignored, this is the book to read [...]


  • List of things this made me feel: frustrated, angry, sad, admiration and dread. This account of John O'Neill's life and career was enlightening and interesting. I had read up on terrorism and the history of America's intelligence community my first year of college, but this showed my so much more about fighting international terrorism in the 90s and beyond into the Post 911 world. I have made a vow to throw a party the day Barbara Bodine dies because of the ridiculousness of her behavior during [...]


  • A personal and professional biography of FBI agent John O'Neill from the point of view of an obvious admirer. Short shrift given to his agents - for instance despite extensive descriptions of the women in his life the case agents in Yemen, including Ali Soufan. after the USS Cole bombing aren't even mentioned though he was one of O'Neill's devotees. Still though incomplete it's a fair attempt at a look at the man himself in context of his work.


  • This was a pretty good read. This is a good companion piece to "The Looming Tower" A lot of the material in this book is covered in depth, but this work puts a human face on the pursuit of Bin Laden.


  • I though from the cover that this would be a conspir. book, but it really was a step by step of this guy's life. There are things in this book that i didn't realize that happened in our counrty, but other than that it's just ok.
