From the Publisher"In the aftermath of 9/11 Why Secret Intelligence Fails is even more important to consider: it pinpoints problems in intelligence routines and information analysis and its chapters on analytic snafus and changing intelligence focus and priorities are particularly revealing."
"Clear, accurate, easily understandable, and should serve as a top-rate text. Highly recommended."
"Michael Turner is one of the nation’s premier experts on intelligence, and this latest book of his is not to be missed. The study is thoughtful and provocative. . . . His examination of how things sometimes go wrong in the analysis of world events, and what might be done to improve the chances of getting things right, is a valuable contribution to the study of intelligence."
"Turner has created a conceptual framework for understanding the arcane intelligence profession, its successes, and its failures. He explains the role intelligence plays in government and how intelligence can be both used and abused. This book ought to be required reading, not only for students of intelligence but for intelligence professionals as well."
"Why Secret Intelligence Fails is both a splendid primer for those with limited knowledge of the U.S. intelligence community and a professional’s examination of the numerous bureaucratic impediments to effective collaboration among the various agencies. His suggestions for implementing necessary changes are certain to generate debate among those who know the field well."
"Turner’s book offers a lively introduction to the U.S. intelligence community and an insider’s perspective on the challenges analysts face as they prepare secret intelligence for policymakers."
