Summary

Online news articles, television news channels, and your local newspaper have probably mentioned ISIS at least once throughout the group's existence. ISIS is viewed as a terrorist organization by some countries, but to others it is seen as people's only hope for having their religion protected from foreign and domestic influences. Before you go siding with ISIS or become an antagonist, understand how ISIS was created and their purpose for existing.

The author possesses a bachelor's degree in business administration and an associate's degree in management technology.

Not worth 19 minutes of your life

A big subject in such a short book. I bought it out of curiosity- how can the authors even pretend that this will amount to a meaningful contribution- or even a starting point- for the literature in this area.

The subject is, of course treated with huge, bland generalisations. The material is disordered and appears selected at random.

Writing is poor, barely literate at times. About the standard of my 14-year old's history essays (the ones he has written on the bus to school).

The narration is slow, dull and the reader sometimes gives the impression he doesn't understand some of the words.

I am really sorry to be so negative. Author and narrater- keep trying. Readers- don't bother.
