"Everything you wanted to find out about intelligence operations but still won't", should have been the title of this book. Needed a quick read for long flight so hit BN on way to airport. Made mistake of picking up this joke. Left it on the plane. Hayden is the prime example of the good old boy power broker system also known as a bubba. A group of buddies who pass each other around to top positions in the government who are completely unqualified for the job. This is nothing but a bilious arrogant narcissistic account of personal encounters by a man who knows nothing of intelligence; how he made a four star general is proof our military alone needs a do over- kind of scary come to think about it - and why we have been in the mid east theater of operations for over 26 years. He absolutely covers nothing worth knowing. Don't waste your money. Watch the old TV series "Get Smart" and learn more
