    " Very out dated information while some of it is still relevant there are many more books out there that are much more current that deal with DHS and other intelligence agencies. Only reason for the low score is the fact that it is outdated. "

    " I suppose it's good research material if you're turned on by dry descriptions of how things work at the CIA. (I read the book because I had planned to write fiction about a CIA character.) I agree with John really... the book is a bore. It's anything but juicy and mostly rather dull. "

    " this really bummed me out. i was hoping for a juicy little glimpse into the cia. all i got was a book that read like a flier to entice potential employees to sign up. shitty. "

    " This book is an interesting look at what goes on behind the scenes at the CIA. But considering it was a book that was recommended to me BY the CIA when I was interviewing with them, I imagine it gives a rather soft portrayal of things. "

    " Very interesting reading. Everyone in the english speaking world knows of the CIA, this book lets you understand it and understand much more about its effect and the impact of politics and the CIA on the world "

    " Don't let the exciting title fool you. This book is outdated and boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Will Brandsmeier | 10/25/2006

    " It was interesting to read about what the CIA does. Not what I really expected. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ross | 6/23/2004

    " Another book covering the disaster that the CIA has been for the most part. I had read "Legacy of Ashes" which is much better so I wasn't able to get through all of this work. It was just going over the same material that was handled better in Legacy of Ashes. "
