One problem with the Opinion from the critics Library Journal: The name they use in their opinion of the book is of the author, William Stevenson, not the man called Intrepid who's real name was Sir William Stephenson (with a "ph" not a "v"). The latter was not an author. I know this because I own a paper copy of the book and their pictures are on the inside back cover, along with their accomplishments.
It was a very insightful book and very relevant in the political climate of today's world. It shows us why total secrecy is a necessary evil when fighting for the freedom we hold so dear.
