After sitting through the first half of this audio book I found it almost impossible to sit through part two. The amount of detail captured in the book is way too much for the casual listener who's looking for anything but an in depth history of the CIA. The book gives a thorough explanation of what all the CIA's departments do on a day to day basis which turns out to be really boring like most other office (and government) jobs. There's not much about covert action in the book at all which is more of what I was looking for. The reading was dull and didn't engage me at all but I'm not sure if it was the content or the monotone reading. The book is definitely thorough, but at the expense of being interesting. If tons of detail is what you're looking for then you may enjoy this book. It's not bad, just dry.
