Undaunted: My Fight Against America's Enemies, At Home and Abroad
Values. Readers can learn a lot about national security from former CIA Director John O. Brennan’s memoir titled, Undaunted: My Fight Against America's Enemies, At Home and Abroad. If we are able to set aside our political alignments for a moment to read about the career of a civil servant, we can find values that are likely to be held in common by citizens at all points along a political continuum. Brennan grew up in working class New Jersey, and a thread of integrity connects his upbringing to his most important roles in government service. Brennan is smart and scrappy, and he leans toward candor in this well-written book. I encourage readers to set aside any preconceptions about Brennan and listen to him tell the story of his life and the jobs he performed in the national security interests of the United States.
