An alarming and enlightening first-hand account of what’s really going on behind the borders of the Islamic State. ISIS, IS, the Islamic State. The name is chilling. The images are horrific. This is a group that beheads journalistsand yet one, the German Jürgen Todenhöfer, went out of his way to get an invitation to visit ISIS fighters in Mosul in 2014 to ask them to explain their beliefs. This book is the result of his conversation. My Journey into the Heart of Terror: Ten Days in the Islamic State shows how the organization grew from its al-Qaeda roots and takes a harsh look at the West’s role in its past and today. Along the way, Todenhöfer offers startling insights into what ISIS thinks, what it wantsand what must change if it is to be defeated. Only by understanding, Todenhöfer believes, can we move forward and combat ISIS’s radical, violent interpretation of Islam and the terror and destruction it brings.

Good beginning and middle. How he contacts members is isis terrorists and his Skype conversations are quite interesting. His interactions with isis terrorists and his description of life under isis is very informative. The suspense regarding the idea jihad John may have been his driver well done. But , his chapter titled A Warning to the West was not to my liking. His politics are not to my liking and are at times contradictory with what he said earlier in the book. Regardless there is some good information here.
