3.0 out of 5 stars Good British Intelligence Guide 6 Oct 2009
This is a good book on British Intelligence based on National Achieves documents. Although some might find it boring, but at least it gave some perspective on the dynamic of British Intelligence. Don't expect it to be a "James Bond" story.
