Heavily redacted due to CIA rules, the book is somewhat frustrating to read. The redaction seems especially petty and possibly vindictive by the CIA staff since much of what was removed is in the public domain, and was included by the publisher at the end of the book anyway. That being said, I felt the book came up short in detailing exactly what was the point of her being "outed" as a CIA spy by the Administration, which was my major interest in the first place. All-in-all, you'll learn a little about who Valerie Plame Wilson was, something of her CIA career, and something about what kind of Administration was running the Country during the Bush years.
I was really interested in this story- and was looking forward to listening to the book. However, in the introduction they tell you about how the manuscript was submitted to the CIA and they redacted many things (this went to litigation and Plame and the publishers lost). They dealt with this by playing a beeping sound every time something had been redacted, thus making it so I could not listen to more than 1/2 of the first CD. I did listen to the afterward that contained a lot of detail on the last 2 cds which was interesting, but I would not recommend this as a listen b/c the beeps are just too annoying.
