Even though this book has a cheesy title it is definitely worth reading for anyone interested in law enforcement and/or autobiographies. Gives an intriguing real account of a career in the FBI and how it effected his home life.

Mr. Moore wrote with honesty, integrity, hilarity, and reverence for God, respect for life, family and friends. I've read dozens of books written by ex members of the FBI, CIA, DIA, NSA and a whole lot of other agencies, because, I admire greatly what you and your comrades do. Truth be told, I would have been thrilled to do what you do, rather than to have become a lawyer, but I admit I didn't have the guts. I guess that’s why I like to read about what I never could do. Now I’ve read a book that makes Mr. Moore my hero not just because of what he did in the bureau, but for his incredible humanity then and now. The story he weaves includes telling of his thinking first of two children in an FBI raid on a high value target, which although a SWAT mistake, was such a demonstration of his heart. This is a heart that continually is seen in the book, but there, but there is so much more than that in the book. Anyone who wants to know what it takes to get into the FBI, the FBI flight program, SWAT, how it will impact their lives, their families and their friends has to read this book, because it honestly lets them know. Anyone who wants to read stories of danger, fear, excitement and adrenalin rushes, should read this book. Anyone who wants to know anything about weapons, airplanes, helicopters, and anything wearable by an assault team member, should read this book. Anyone who wants to just know that around death and craziness and in Steve's own fight against cancer, when things weren't going the way he planned or thought they should, he leaned on God and proudly display that in this book. So for anyone who reads this, I'm not a book critic, I'm just a guy who loves this kind of book, I recently read a book called "Operation Dark Heart" about a CIA special operative out of Afghanistan and a quarter of the book was redacted by the CIA. In spite of the redaction's, I could tell in many cases what was written since they were merely XX(s) through some of the words, and in several cases they didn't seem to be anymore secret than what Steve Moore has written about the FBI and its cases. That, for one thing, gives me a better feeling about the FBI and what it does not fear sharing with the public as opposed to the CIA, DIA NSA and others who think that everything in which they are involved is top secret and sacrosanct and for their eyes only; damn the public. Although Operation Dark Heart was a good book, even with the redactions, it does not come close to Steve Moore's book. It was exciting, but it lacked the heart; the human toll; the good and bad and the ugly things that being in the business of protecting our country can lead to and in most cases, must. Steve Moore gives us that side of the business he was in for one half of his life. I found myself crying at the end knowing the tragedy this type of life could bring to a family, yet also knowing how important it was and is for these brave men and women who put on the FBI badge everyday. As with Steve, it must be with other law enforcement personnel, a challenge to continue the day to day fight against crime. I can say without fear of contradiction once you start reading Special Agent Man” I still hate the title, you won't put it down, and Steve will become your hero and his wife Michelle will become your heroine. You'll have to read the book to find out why.

I enjoy reading about intelligence work, during both WWII and present times; but this book really stands out for me. Steve Moore writes not only about facts, but also feelings, humbly and with a great sense of humour. He is truly a gifted story-teller. I admire him, not only for what he did for his country, but for the integrity in which he did it. Moore does not make himself out to be a hero, but hero he is -- and so are his wife and children. . . . . If you enjoy the subject matter, this is A MUST-READ. If not, you may want to give it a try any way -- it's just that good.
