    Well, on this very day 1/25/13, John Kiriakou has been found guilty of leaking classified information, and has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison. The judge said she would have given him a longer sentence if she could. As to the audio-book, while interesting, I thought the title of the book was incorrect, it should have been in my thinking 'The Disgruntled Spy'. I found him hardly 'reluctant' as he climbed the ladder in the CIA, just the opposite..... he was always positioning himself to advance in his career.

    It was a good listen. He had an interesting life but it was not great.
