The Iran specialist for the U.S. National Security Council during the American hostage crisis, Sick recounts the government's response and presents a dispiriting portrait of bureaucracy as a form of diplomacy. PW noted that Sick writes with "brisk assurance, and his narrative gathers a satisfying momentum."
