Críticas:

Crumpton's narrative, especially when chronicling the response to the 9/11 attacks, moves like a thriller, presenting a story of ingenuity and courage under fire a compelling account of the changes that have allowed the CIA to fight the war on terror with unprecedented resources and success. There is no doubt that the CIA will in the future have to devote more resources to intelligence gathering. The agency should apply to its traditional operations the same ruthless, results-oriented ethos that Mr. Crumpton and his colleagues applied to fighting al Qaeda. The Wall Street Journal
"A lively account...combines the derring-do of old-fashioned spycraft with thoughtful meditations on the future of warfare and intelligence work. It deserves to be read." The Washington Post
Offer[s] an exceptionally deep glimpse into the CIA s counterterrorism operations in the last decade of the twentieth century. Harper s
[A] colorful inside account. San Francisco Chronicle
Hank Crumpton s riveting account of his life in the CIA and the run up to the war in Afghanistan is a treasure for every citizen who wants to know the sacrifices, courage and strategic vision of the clandestine services in war and peace. Tom Brokaw
The Art of Intelligence
reflects the character of its author: Honest, smart, direct and impressive. Crumpton offers important new insights into the C.I.A. s role in the Taliban s overthrow in 2001, as well as a wider portrait of modern intelligence that is frank and compelling. Steve Coll, author of Ghost Wars
"[A] fascinating glimpse into the CIA s most secret and secretive department." Kirkus"

Reseña del editor:

A legendary CIA spy and counterterrorism expert tells the spellbinding story of his high-risk, action-packed career
