The definitive book on the distinctive history and psychology of ISIS, based on Wood's unprecedented access to the Islamic State's own recruiters and supporters, and his extensive time reporting throughout the region. Based on interviews with Islamic State members and supporters, Wood delivers a fast-paced, riveting narrative about what the Islamic State wants and how it plans to get it. The true story of the on-the-ground reality of the wealthiest, most infamous jihadist group in our world today. A deep dive into the heart of the Islamic State's apocalyptic worldview, this is a bracing look at this terrorist cult from the people who belong to it, promote it and recruit for it.

I personally would not recommend this book who has no political or religious knowledge of the Islamic State, Islam, or the war in Syria. There are a lot of ideologies, terms, and people who are not thoroughly explained and will leave you lost. If you want to read this book, I would recommend doing research on the politics of the Islamic State and Islam.
