A very interesting book detailing the inner working of the CIA and how much the bureaucracy of the Agency negatively affects case officers. Just talking to a possible intelligence source requires months of paper work. The author out-and-out say that he never would have got anything done had he followed the rules.
In the appendix the author provides a list of what he thinks the CIA should do to fix its problems and historical examples of its failings.
