Absolutely horrible book. It appears no-one proof read the book. Full of factual inaccuracies. For example, he says the first world trade center bombing was in 1986. In another chapter he clearly states London established the first police department in 1829 then later on in the conclusion he mentions it again only this time he says it was 1812. I can't believe this made it to print. And worse it's a required reading for my promotional exam! Ridiculous.
