    A legendary CIA spy and counterterrorism expert here tells the spellbinding story of his high-risk, action-packed career while illustrating the growing importance of America's intelligence officers and their secret missions. The Art of Intelligence draws from the full arc of Henry Crumpton's espionage and covert action exploits to explain what America's spies do and why their service is more valuable than ever.

    Story

    The second book by former Navy SEAL Mark Owen, following his multimillion-copy classic about the bin Laden mission No Easy Day, in which he tells the stories from his career that were most personal to him and that made him the operator and the person he is today.

    Story
    What would have made No Hero better?

    This would have been a terrific book if he wasn't forced to make so many redactions. I understand that he cannot reveal too many details, but because of this, it takes away from the story. Eventually the story becomes redundant.


    What could Mark Owen and Kevin Maurer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    If he were to reveal more details of the missions without giving too many classified details. I think the government restrained too many details that are now made public.


    Which character – as performed by Paul Michael – was your favorite?

    O'Neill


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.

    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    I have listened and have not checked the written book.

    John seemed to be the most level headed among all the characters.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    This book certainly points out what may become a reality.
