George K Friedman is the best, and this book is terrific, but WAC/DFW need to put the microphone in the same room as George when he talks next time. The clinking of glass and other background noises are far more distinct than George’s voice. Find another recording, please.

Rank #19: The Art of Intelligence: Lessons From a Life in the CIA’s Clandestine Service

Podcast cover
Read more
The Art of Intelligence draws from the full arc of Crumpton’s espionage and covert action exploits to explain what America’s spies do and why their service is more valuable than ever. From his early years in Africa, where he recruited and ran sources, from loathsome criminals to heroic warriors; to his liaison assignment at the FBI, the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center, the development of the UAV Predator program, and the Afghanistan war; to his later work running all CIA clandestine operations inside the United States, he employs enthralling storytelling to teach important lessons about national security, but also about duty, honor, and love of country.
