    Pathetic

    Don't waste your time or money on this book or fighting for the 1st edition. This book, written at the junior high school reading level, chronicals the last appeal of a second string intelligence officer to justify his ill-fated attempt to become a whistleblower. He lost his security clearance, committed travel voucher fraud and publicly discusses current operations for his own benefit. This individual epitomizes the antithesis of the quiet professional. The government is doing this loser and his publisher a favor by purchasing the first edition.

    Don't waste your time

    Don't bother, this is the redacted copy. B&N should clearly state this on the page. My copy is going back!

    PATHETIC. Should be listed as fiction.

    Quite possibly one of the worst books I have ever read. It took me about 5 tries to get through the first chapter. Seriously, a whole chapter about receiving a Bronze Star which are handed out like towels at the gym these days. Add a "with valor" to it and that may constitute something worth of a chapter. Anyone that has been there will find this sickening.

    I love this book

    I am very picky on which books I read, and this book is great! I am very pleased on how well it was written, even though it has some things blacked out. That is what makes this book itself. It is fun trying to figure out what it means! I am almost done with it, and can't wait to find out the ending!

    Concur with above, verifiable self-promoter who dishonors those in his field by not adhering to the quiet professional mantra. he might as well join wikileaks while he is at it.
