    Not as informative as expected

    But it was an okayread on how it felt for one person to work for an infamous agency. her story supports the notion that peoplewho work for the government must not have trouble lying to people closest to them. This policy seems eminently unfair to those who love such employees. One might also wonder if people are tricked into signing documents that put them in service of any U.S. intelligence agencies. The reader might also wonder whether the government blackballed Ms. Moran after she resigned by making work opportunities impossible to find or meddling with her finances or other aspects of her personal life. Do agencies such as the CIA,NSA and others target individuals for which there is a need then destroy their lives if they do not want to become part of such organizations? This is a question for Lindsey!! We never find out what happened to Lindsey as a result of her decision to leave the agency!

    This book ain't about the CIA

    I picked this book at an airport just for being curious about CIA. If you are looking for facts and figures of the CIA don't pick this book, however this is an incredibly honest tale of a girl who chased a dream that ended up not being the reality she needed. Perhaps there's no wisdom but the book it's filled with genuine emotions that all of us can relate to, or at least those that have the ability to question themselves beyond the mere justification of their acts. I recommend this book to young people on their early 20's since it deals with facing reality, and the need to match your expectations with the real world. The book is easy reading and the pace is just right, a refreshing reading.

    A Very Honest Book,

    I like this book a lot. It's easy to read, with a lot of detail on the way the CIA works. It comes away with a perspective that things need to be changed, and it does this through examples, and what the author feeling.
