This book, unfortunately, makes for very boring reading despite the inherently fascinating story behind it. The authors spend the first 80% of the book putting down the previous investigators who made various mistakes and failed to identify the Unabomber, without noticing that they, too, failed to identify him. It was Kaczynski's brother and sister-in-law who identified him and notified the FBI. Freeman et al. try to take credit for something they didn't do - solve the case, although the description of the arrest at the end was very good. In addition to pedestrian writing, the book is full of grammar errors.
