1.0 out of 5 stars Might as well read a guide book, 30 Dec 2013
If I wanted to read a guide book then I'd consult Lonely Planet. The Da Vinci Code had obscure historical facts, but they were centred around a mystery and code that needed to be solved. Inferno just had descriptions about décor with no purpose other than to showcase Dan Brown's presumably lovely holiday in Italy.

And don't get me started on the ridiculous pseudo-science.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learned something, 18 Oct 2010
This review is from: GCHQ (Hardcover)
America's signals intelligence "special relationship" with the UK was surprising to me, as it really does (did?) seem to be close (as opposed to the "special relationship" much touted and abused as a concept by the media nowadays). So I found this book just as interesting from the wider political perspective, as well as the detail about GCHQ's activities.

Only drawback for me was the one or two references to how other academics' writings were wrong. Academics can't resist an opportunity for an argument.
