*First Reads Won*

This is a good book to read to find out the general history of the FBI. It is not too in-depth about any particular aspect, but gives an overarching view of its existence since its conception.

I do not really think about the FBI in my everyday life, so this was eye-opening in some respects. I always thought the FBI was bigger and more effective than this book made it seem by giving statistics about the number of employees and the way the FBI dealt with cases.

I prefer books that give more detail instead of a sweep, but this book would have to be thousands of pages long in order to do that justice for the FBI's history. It is a good book for what it wants to accomplish.
