A biography of the leader of the Taliban movement, considered one of the most mysterious figures in the world today. The portrait of a reclusive, shy man who carries on the struggle for Afghanistan, its values and dignity, Fini’s book can also be read as a metaphor for the war between the Man and the Machine, the Man and the power of money, between Eastern and Western ways of life. A book which helps to know what the West is nowadays and why.
