    This is the book the CIA does not want you to read. For the last 60 years, the CIA has maintained a formidable reputation in spite of its terrible record, never disclosing its blunders to the American public. It spun its own truth to the nation while reality lay buried in classified archives. Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Tim Weiner offers a stunning indictment of the CIA, a deeply flawed organization that has never deserved America's confidence.

    Michael says: "Flawed but Important"
    "Now I know why the CIA continually blows it...."
    Overall

    ...Its run by white guys who have no interest in learning the cultures or the languages of the countries they are supposed to be spying on and protecting us from. This self-imposed ignorance will continue to be our greatest threat, not terrorist organizations.

    This book will open your eyes, even if you come to a different conclusion than I did.

    In a hard-hitting and provocative polemic, Silicon Valley insider and pundit Andrew Keen exposes the grave consequences of today's new participatory Web 2.0 and reveals how it threatens our values, economy, and ultimately the very innovation and creativity that forms the fabric of American achievement.

    Michael Fielden says: "A painful voyage from a single perspective"
    "Unless technology scares you..."
    Overall

    ... don't read this book.
