Although I love books about spying, espionage, and the CIA, this one was too bland for my tastes. Ronald Kessler is a journalist who was granted extraordinary access to the inter-workings of the CIA. Unfortunately, he writes like an outsider rather than an expert. He has no personal stories, anecdotes, or first-hand experiences. As a result, this book reads like a distant documentary. While it is chock-full of information, I found myself dreading reading it more and more with each page.
I gave up on it about 100 pages in.
