    What did you love best about The Art of Intelligence?

    An insider perspective of the world of intelligence and modern warfare as they hunt for the most wanted terrorists. Crumpton pinpoints the differences between multiple agencies he collaborated with over the years from education, technology, tradecraft, protocol, dealing with politics, decision making as well as working with the private sector.


    What did you like best about this story?

    An insider perspective of the world of intelligence and modern warfare. The reasons behind introducing drones and their evolution into effective predators is described in great detail. Fascinating look into use of data to improve decision making. The story is surprisingly revealing.


    What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

    The narration was direct and purposeful, but not droning.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were some beautiful uses of data described. The collaboration between government agencies described is awe inspiring. There is some parts of prayer and deep patriotic feelings by the author.
