"A timely, immensely readable, and highly critical history of the CIA, culminating with the most recent catastrophic failures in Iraq." (Mark Bowden, author of Blackhawk Down)

Fascinating story and enjoyable listening experience
This book was a recommendation on the NoAgenda podcast (which I hereby also recommend) and after having finished the book I encourage anyone else to listen to it too.
It tells the story of the CIA from its founding days after WW2 until the end of the Bush administration.
I read on some Amazon reviews that the book is negatively biased towards the CIA and from time to time it seems so. But when you have listened to the last two chapters, the whole story gets and additional aspect, so I really can't join into this criticism.
I whole-heartedly recommend listening to this audiobook. And as the speaker's voice fits the narrative nicely this is not only an interesting but also a very pleasant experience.
