When I learned that Abdel Bari Atwan had spent three days with Osama bin Laden in his hideout in Tora Bora, Afghanistan, I said, ‘There has to be a book in that!’. And indeed there was.
Our book became a great success, was translated into 18 languages and is on several University reading lists. The hardback was published by Saqi, the paperback by Little Brown. 2006.
