According to an article published in May 2015 by Vice magazine, Bradley "has remov[ed] himself from public life due to ill health,"
a statement that confirms an earlier posting by Bradley himself on his personal website.
“(This) book… in a strikingly prescient way… foretold the January revolution. (It) was banned by Mubarak’s regime — and understandably so! If you want to understand how Egypt got to this crossroads, read this book.”
For two and a half years beginning June 2001, he worked as a news editor and managing editor for the English-language daily newspaper Arab News
in Saudi Arabia. Unlike other journalists until that time he was able to travel most of the country without a minder.
Based on his experiences he wrote the book Saudi Arabia Exposed: Inside a Kingdom in Crisis
. The book received considerable praise, with for example the New York Times review saying it provides "a highly informed, temperate and understanding account" of the country.
