    not familiar with author; do they write with liberal slant/agenda, or do they approach subject matter in professional manner?

    Finishing Pimp by Iceberg Slim. Heard about that from one of Dave Chapelle's Netflix specials recently. Onto America Before by Graham Hancock next.

    She has written multiple books on the military, the space program, the CIA's psychic reader program and her last book is on the history of area 51---
    I've never detected a "liberal" bias on her part other than being willing to state when the emperor has no clothes in regards to these areas/projects....she writes in an informative manner for a general audience however....if you have extensive experience in any of these area's there may no new material revealed for you however....
    hope this helps...

    I'm going to have to grab that one. In the 90's I worked at SAIC for a time when some of the Stargate guys were still around. It was....interesting. lol

    Ha---! I bet it was interesting---I dealt with SAIC one time---which by itself was an interesting environment---?

    I think you'll enjoy it---she writes in great detail but in a very compact manner---apparently she was a reporter and the style remains...
    I really enjoyed it--although I am a fan of anything on that subject---for example "Suspect Zero" is one of my favorite movies which if you haven't seen it focuses on an ex-reader hunting serial killers---an excellent film that never got the credit it deserved---possibly because the subject matter was too remote for many----?

    Just finishing a HUGE Tom Clancy book from a couple of years or so ago. "Threat Vector" -- primary story line centers around how bad national actors wreak havoc on all manner of IT systems from private sector to utility infrastructure to control of drones and through to DoD etc. Sure, it is fiction; but does get one thinking!

    L'chaim!

    How did you like the book? It appears via the subtitle the author attempted to cover ground where Sean Naylor's Relentless Strike and Mark Mazzetti's Way of the Knife previously succeeded.

    Well it was not as good as several of her previous books---one of the apparent things was that she hooked up with one or two operators who "romanced" her with their war stories---which while reading made me have a tendency to discount some information---however the background on special ops in the Korean war was new material to me---I wish there had been more of that---
    so it's 50/50 for me on this book----
    hope this helps---?
