Facts and Fears: Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence
Facts and Fears: Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence, former United States director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper, offers readers a professional and candid description of five decades of life in the intelligence committee and the lessons he learned. Clapper’s life has been spent in public service, and he describes that life with a frankness that seems foreign and refreshing in relation to other memoirs. He seems to take an objective view of his failures, and praises others frequently. He can’t disclose classified things that readers would like to know, but nudges our attention toward areas of focus, including concerns about North Korea and Russian interference in United States elections. Set partisan views aside and listen to what Clapper has learned, whether you want to hear his message or not. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Facts and Fears from amazon.com.
