The Bin Ladens - An Arabian Family in the American Century.

It's good. After the author gets through the early generations of the family the story is mostly told from the angle of Salem, the oldest son and head of the family and Osama. Salem could hardly have been more Western and secular oriented. The rest of the family seems to fall somewhere between the two brothers.
