Whether you like to read about the history of the U.S or specific history topics like the CIA, this book is amazing!
I had to stop several times just to make sure that what I was reading was real, some of the stories seemed like they should have been in a movie.
This was the first book in some time, that I just couldn't put down. It will definitely make you think about the course of the US and how our "Intelligence" agency is thought about.
I learned a lot and was entertained the whole way.
