    Based on extensive research and hundreds of interviews, including two with active directors of Central Intelligence, William H. Webster and Robert M. Gates, and with three former D.C.I.s, Inside the C.I.A. is the first in-depth, unbiased account of the Agency's core operations, its abject failures, and its resounding successes.

    Greg says: "Pre- 9/11 look at CIA's strengths and weaknesses"
    "Fair View of the Agency, but Fire the Narrator"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, the book is informative and provides a fair, less-biased view of the CIA compared to most books on the Agency, which tend to either bash it or praise it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    N/A


    What didn’t you like about Chris Lane’s performance?

    Terrible. It sounded like a computer robot or chatbot reading text. No enthusiasm or inflection. Very monotone and dry.


    Could you see Inside the C.I.A. being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Perhaps a documentary, docu-film, or like an HBO historical series (like John Adams or Band of Brothers). I'd watch it.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, the book is worth the read. You get used to the narrator's voice, though it's horrible. I would have preferred to read it myself (rather than listen to that narrator), but I didn't have that luxury. But, all-in-all, a good book.
