Outstandingly entertaining read - - and you know why? It is one of those quasi-fictional books which fictionalizes the facts, the nonfictional background stories. Most supposedly nonfiction books today are mostly fiction; those entertaining fictional books are usually the real nonfiction, masked as entertainment. This author really knows his stuff [ignore the author's photo on the jacket cover; looks like a good fella without the chest hair].
Which brings to mind the much ado about the Russian hacking [which the CIA has still NOT provided hardcore evidence of], which even if somewhat factual [which is highly uncertain at this point], consider how incredibly insignificant it is compared to the unbelievable hacking of the Chinese military [GhostNet, Deep Panda, Titan Rain, et cetera, et cetera]; not only stealing plans and specs for EVERY important weapons system the US possesses but hacks over 25 million personnel records at the OPM, which allows them to match to other financial records they have hacked, seeking financially vulnerable government workers [especially Chinese and Chinese-American government workers and employees of defense contractors, which they most decidedly hacked already] so as to seek out spies internally. Why this hasn't been discussed more may be the most serious indictment of the so-called National Security Establishment under Bush and Obama! [We know from David Wise's book, Tiger Trap, the Chinese military long ago successfully deeply penetrated the FBI, whose activities should be kept under close watch now.]
