The author has a sense of humor and that makes the book somewhat fun, especially when she talks about her training. However, I don't think former spies should write books about the incompetence, stupidity, and fruitlessness of our national security. It isn't a joke! We depend on these people. I think Israeli security is probably the best there is and I wish our CIA would take some lessons from them. But this expose kind of stuff; outlining the training and the inner workings of the CIA, well I just think it is wrong.
Also, this woman is Jewish and it bothered me greatly to hear her talk about eating treif (spicy sausages and cheese?!). I guess I can't fault her as author for that but it bothers me nevertheless.
