Cormac Healy asked:

I have a copy of Smiley's People and was wondering if I have to read the other novels in the series first to understand/enjoy the book?

Daniel R. The answer is yes, you need to at least read Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy to understand the who, what, where of Smiley's People. The Honorable Schoolboy is good but not as necessary to follow the action in the third novel.
