Helpful Score: 1
I have mixed feelings for this book. As an audio book, it was not the best. The narration was dry with hardly any attempt at different voices or tones. Very monotonus. The writing itself was better. This book gives quite a good look at the history of the CIA and Weiner took pains to use original sources and attribute quotes to actual people - no anynomus sources. I was impressed and surpriesd by the detail that is covered. This books allows us to peek behind the curtain of secrets and I would reccommend it to anyone who has an interest in American government or world events.
