Review

"Robert Steele is about 100 times as smart and 10,000 times as dangerous as the best of the hackers, for he is successfully hacking the most challenging of bureaucracies, the U.S. intelligence community, and doing it for the right reasons."
--Bruce Sterling, "Wired" magazine and author of "Hacker Crackdown: Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier"
"Few have thought as deeply or imaginatively about such questions as a super-smart former Marine and intelligence officer named Robert D.
Steele...."
--Alvin and Heidi Toffler, authors of "War & Anti-War: Survival at the Dawn of the 21st Century"
"Robert Steele is unusual for an American ... he is clearly internationalist in his orientation. He has written a book that can bring us together in facing our greatest enemies: ignorance, poverty, and mistrust."
--Rear Admiral Hamit Gulemre Aybars, Turkish Navy (Retired)
"Robert Steele's vision for the future of intelligence is clearly 'internationalist' in nature. It focuses on regional partnerships ... and on the value of open source intelligence collection."
--Rear Admiral Dr. Sigurd Hess, DE N(Ret), Former Chief of Staff, Allied Command Baltic Approaches
"Constantly committed to truth and honesty, [his work] demonstrates his ability to grasp the real issues and to take into account the views and concerns of men of good will from all nations and all cultures."
--Admiral Pierre Lacoste, French Navy (Ret), Former Director of Foreign Intelligence (DSGE)
"Robert Steele goes well beyond the original visions of the best of the Directors of Central Intelligence, and has crafted a brilliant, sensible, and honorable future for the intelligence profession."
--Major General Oleg Kalugin, KGB (Ret), Former Elected Deputy to the Russian Parliament
"Over a broad canvas reflecting the changing nature of information and information technologies, Robert Steele lays the foundation for the future of e-intelligen

"If you have ever thought that the U.S. intelligence system is structurally dysfunctional you will not be disappointed by Steele. The bottom line is that if you satisfied with a status quo which operates on the basis of "a top-heavy, opaque, centralized, and rigidified system that misses the big picture and rewards a few at the expense of the many," then don't read Steele's book." --"Huffington Post"

"I found it refreshing to read such a powerful and all-encompassing approach to the eternal problem of hierarchy and how so few people are currently determining the destiny of so many individuals on this planet." --Peter J. Morris, " Writer and Blogger"

"Steele's book is a must-read, a powerful yet still pragmatic roadmap to a new civilisational paradigm that simultaneously offers a trenchant, unrelenting critique of the prevailing global order. His interdisciplinary 'whole systems' approach dramatically connects up the increasing corruption, inefficiency and unaccountability of the intelligence system and its political and financial masters with escalating inequalities and environmental crises."
-- Nafeez Ahmed, "The Guardian "
