I didn't learn much that I didn't already know, but reading this book refreshed my memory because I forgot it over the years. It seems like Ames's motives were banal. He just wanted to get out of debt, then, the next thing you know he crossed over the line to naming every CIA asset he knew of and wasn't concerned with getting them killed off by the KGB.
