    Getting It Right is set in the upheaval of the 1960's. The Cuban missile crisis has brought the Communist threat to within miles of the United States, and extremist movements roil the American Right.

    I thought this was boring until I started listening to "Conservatives Without Conscience" !
    But even this uninteresting book is better than that. That's the best that I can say about it.

  • Burn Before Reading: Presidents, CIA Directors, and Secret Intelligence

    Drawing on his own personal experience, as well as interviews with living presidents, Turner takes us into the White House and shares with us an intimate view of the inner working of our government's intelligence agency. There has never been a time when the relationship between the president and the head of the CIA has been so scrutinized or so relevant to our government policy.

    Kenneth says: "Ernest and sincere, will be politicized"
    "Burn Before Reading"
    Overall

    A history of the CIA, an interesting subject, written by Admiral Turner, Director of Central Intelligence from the Carter Administration. Written/told in a predictably bureauocratic manner with his own personal prejudices showing. But he's human like the rest of us. If you're interested in the subject, (as I am) it's not a bad book.

    Stewart Dubinsky knew his father had served in World War II. And he'd been told how David Dubin (as his father had Americanized the name that Stewart later reclaimed) had rescued Stewart's mother from the horror of the Balingen concentration camp. But when he discovers, after his father's death, a packet of wartime letters to a former fiancee, and learns of his father's court-martial and imprisonment, he is plunged into the mystery of his family's secret history.

    A splendid book about a military lawyer during WW2 in Europe. Exciting, interesting, very well written and told.

    Jason Steadman is a 30-year-old sales executive living in Boston and working for an electronics giant, a competitor to Sony and Panasonic. He's a witty, charismatic guy who's well liked at the office, but he lacks the "killer instinct" necessary to move up the corporate ladder. To the chagrin of his ambitious wife, it looks as if his career has hit a ceiling. Jason's been sidelined.

    Emma says: "Mediocre at best"
    "Killer Instinct"
    Overall

    A "page-turner" . Very good story, well told.

    Attorney Ken McClain has nothing to live for. Nine years after the accident that claimed the life of his wife and two sons, he's finally given up. Alone in his empty house, it seems suicide is his only escape. Now the question of death by pills or by bullet? Then suddenly the phone rings, and it turns out to be a case he can't refuse. A case for the life of accused killer Peter Thomason, and a case for his own soul.

    Barbara says: "Delivers"
    "The Trial"
    Overall

    A moderately interesting start of a criminal trial. After entrapping the reader with the plot, it then reveals itself as a Christian religious book.

    In a cloak-and-dagger story of spies, saboteurs, and secret agents, Kinzer reveals the involvement of Eisenhower, Churchill, Kermit Roosevelt, and the CIA in Operation Ajax, which restored Mohammad Reza Shah to power. Reza imposed a tyranny that ultimately sparked the Islamic Revolution of 1979 which, in turn, inspired fundamentalists throughout the Muslim world, including the Taliban and terrorists who thrived under its protection.

    A fascinating history of modern Iran and the background that led to today's problems. Well-written and very interesting.

    John Dean's last New York Times best seller, Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency of George W. Bush, offered the former White House insider's unique and telling perspective on George W. Bush's presidency. Once again, Dean employs his distinctive knowledge and understanding of Washington politics and process to examine the conservative movement's current inner circle of radical Republican leaders, from Capitol Hill to Pennsylvania Avenue to K Street and beyond.

    "Conservative Without a Conscience"

    Boring in the extreme.
