While this book has some interesting details about life in the CIA, they certainly aren't worth listening to Clarridge's prejudices, his chauvenism, his arrogance and the facts only as he remembers them. He spends more time measuring the attractiveness of the various women in his story than he does discussing the effect of, for example, Kennedy's assination on his work as a CIA operative. Skip this in favor of a more credible text.

I don't usually write reviews on books I have read but to find only one review by someone who bashes a decent attempt to tell a story about a career without compromising the profession and those still within it, then to not even put his name on his short sighted opinion, prompted me to even the field a little.

The inner workings of the C.I.A. and many of the activities encountered by it's people are not available to the public and for very good reason. Mr. Clarridge's story is one I found to be very informative and educational. Much of his career was spent faithfully and loyal to the office of the President of the United States and the security of the United States.

A Spy for All Seasons is a great read for someone interested in the actual and often seldom publicized activities of such a person. Although it may be true that a reader may disagree with some of the politics of the book, Clarridge's or the opposition, one cannot refute that it is an engrossing story and lightyears beyond the mundane of many average folk.

Mr. Clarridge cites many Agency activities as well as the effects it had on his family relationship. He hides nothing and extolls his beliefs, sometimes to the flak of his detractors. The book exposes insights to the makeup of the man. One who excelled at his job, and is sought out today for his opinions on todays world activities.

Since the books release in 1997, Clarridge has predicted in his book many things that have come to pass that are at the front of World's Leadership's attention today.

I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

I have purposely only signed into an account to refute the absolute dross given in the review by FLUKERF. do nor waste your money on this evil man. instead google 'The War On Democracy' by John Pilger and see what kind of man he truly is, an evil person with absolute no regard for human life. FLUKERF you are obviously employed by the US Govt. to give this pathetic creepy review, and i quote; "informative and educational. Much of his career was spent faithfully and loyal to the office of the President of the United States and the security of the United States." replace US with 3rd Reich and you may get the picture, see the documentary and you will see for yourself the absolute denial of wrongdoing just like Hilter's cronies. what a crock of s***. The audacity to present himself on the cover as some sort of marlon brando or fading movie star is laughable!
