Mr. Bergen is well known for his books on terrorism as well as his work as a security analyst on CNN.
In this book he explores homegrown terrorists. Those who leave our country to train as well as the lone wolves who act entirely on their own.

The book follows the stories of some of the key players over the years since 9/11 and even before.
It did read like a true crime novel, which I enjoyed. We hear these stories on the news, but there is usually not a lot of in depth coverage or follow up. Even now I wonder how many people know where the Boston bomber Tsarnav is or what we have learned from him?
