When the Unabomber suspect was arrested at a cabin outside Lincoln, Montana, in 1996 no one was more surprised than his neighbor of 25 years, Chris Waits. Now Waits, whom ABC News described as the 'man who knew him best', has stepped forward with his significant portrait of Kaczynski. He teamed with veteran Montana newsman Dave Shors to write a riveting story about the secret years in Lincoln. Waits was the only person who could tell this story, which includes a compelling mix of personal observations. From the FBI, Waits obtained copies of Kaczynski documents and personal journals. Most of them have never been published before. Kaczynski, a former math professor, was a prolific writer who kept detailed accounts and journals of his daily life. Some 22,000 pages of his writings were found in his one-room cabin after his arrest, describing everything from his daily lifestyle to his desire to kill.
