This is a very comprehensive volume of thoughts and functions for how the Intelligence Analysis profession does work and how it could work better. The writing style and level is excellent for the college and higher reader and the content and layout is logical and builds well through the book.

The target-centric approach is all about getting away from the hierarchy of the intelligence process and attacking an intelligence problem by building synergy amongst all invested parties. This book also goes into all aspects of intelligence analysis: source verification, modeling for predictive intelligence, how to present information to policymakers, etc. A very valuable book for anyone interested in the intelligence analysis field.

This book was assigned reading for my Target Analysis Course. My course is still in session for another 4 weeks, but this is a very good book, very enlightening, well written and much to learn that the author has written about.

It arrived right on time and I was very grateful, as my school neglected to send me this book.
