Review: For the President's Eyes Only: Secret Intelligence & the American Presidency from Washington to Bush

User Review  - Andy - Goodreads

It's a comprehensive look at the subject matter, but unfortunately the writing is extremely dry. The books could use an updated edition, too, as its coverage ends during the first Bush administration. Read full review

Review: For the President's Eyes Only: Secret Intelligence & the American Presidency from Washington to Bush

User Review  - Greg Fanoe - Goodreads

I admit, it was a bit tough to get through this, but it had a lot of great information and made every president from Truman on through George HW Bush look pretty bad! Good work. Read full review
