I was listening to the book on CD while driving, but had to shut it off because all of the actual story was beeped out. There wasn't a story left to tell. I was going to look at the actual book to see if it was made up of page after page of black bars throughout. Even the lines between the story were beeped out so you couldn't imagine anything but the annoying beeping in your head after a while (which I am thinking is the reason why the book on CD was in the clearance area). Next time, if a book is almost entirely beeped out, I recommend not publising or selling it at all. I would still like to find the book to see what it looks like, but will need to go to the library to see it, because it isn't worth fifty cents at a garage sale. It sounds like a typical government operation that hides the true story and leaves nothing to argue.

Only half way through the book, but find it difficult to read with all the sections blocked out by the CIA.

Yes, this book is redacted but, it's worth it. Still educational. Still a good read.

Listening to Valerie tell her story had me on all ends of the spectrum. At times I would be happy for her, then sad, then mad. How could the people that claim to have our best interests at heard allow for someone to be outed like this? This book really opened my eyes to some of the things going on behind closed doors and how its easier to place blame and cover up what's going on then to actually admit you were wrong. Valerie did a great job in this book really making me feel like I was right there with her, feeling her struggle and heartache. Some mornings it was hard to get out of the car and stop listening to this book. It was an easy listen, answered many questions and kept me engaged. I would certainly recommend this to anyone that has a little interest in politics or just wants to hear an honest story from an honest woman. The only problem I had was during the "black out periods" of the book that the CIA would not allowed to be published, the sound was a bit loud and would also be frustrating because I really wanted to know what was going on and what she was not allowed to tell us. The questions seem to be all answered at the end, however the wait to hear it was a little bothersome.

The only challenge in reading this memoir is it is heavily redacted-blacked out as she was required to sign a CIA confidentiality agreement which was upheld on appeal. Otherwise the story of a gorgeous woman who loved serving her country as a CIA Officer for nearly twenty years is compelling. There are insights into the CIA and the players in the Bush Administration who believed they were untouchable but when her cover was blown it's the emotional effects on Valerie, her family and her career that make this story memorable.
