Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA by Tim Weiner

I borrowed Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA at the urging of friends, but I decided to return it without reading.

It is a National Book Award Winner and many friends have recommended this book so maybe I will borrow it again later.

It didn’t feel like a book I wanted to read right now, if that makes sense. Just wasn’t in the mood for it.

But if you’re interested, click here to read an excerpt, here to read the CIA’s statement on this book, or here to read a New York Times review by Michael Beschloss titled “The C.I.A.’s Missteps, From Past to Present” published July 12, 2007.
