This self-narrated memoir of the author's 30 years in public service, culminating in his time as CIA director under Obama, is both absorbing and engaging. Brennan's diction is clear, and his voice conversational, so listeners truly feel that he is speaking to them. The book begins and ends with Trump--he is no fan--but most stories are about life in intelligence and the trade-offs made on issues like interrogation techniques and cybersecurity; while ready to defend some decisions, he also admits to mistakes. It's clear that the author and his erstwhile colleagues believe in their mission to defend their country against forces "at home and abroad." Listeners will be impressed by his candor, and grateful for his service. L.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
