One book on the list:
"The Looming Tower," by Lawrence WrightRead about the other books on the list.
New Yorker writer Lawrence Wright's Pulitzer Prize-winning book does not focus exclusively on Osama bin Laden, but no list of books about bin Laden would be complete without reference to Wright's excellent work. In reviewing "The Looming Tower" for the Monitor, Monitor reviewer Erik Spanberg wrote, "It is hard to imagine a better portrait of 9/11 and its causes emerging anytime soon." When it comes to the book's examination of various Al Qaeda leaders, including bin Laden, Spanberg says that Wright's book "strips away much of the mystery."
