I did not like it and did not finish it. I'm not surprised I didn't like the other book he wrote. The subject matter sounds cool, but very textbookish.

Recommends it for: ignorant Americans and not ignorant Americans
Recommended to Careuhhline by: my social movements professor Dr. Stone
This is a disturbing detailed account of just how a-moral slash immoral slash racist our federal bureau of intelligence is.
