A very good and thorough accounting of a few select MOSSAD operations from the 1960s till present. Sections of it are somewhat tinged by a generous helping of the authors'(fully justified) pride and confidence in the secretive agency; but that's a small price to pay for reading a well-researched book by clearly well-connected Israeli journalists. One of the best espionage/clandestine operations books I have read (and I have read a few) - highly recommended. Even though I am normally interested in everything regarding military and secret organizations, I wasn't particularly intrigued by this book. The way it is organized, each chapter is a history of a different mosad operation. Some were interesting, but I couldn't force myself to finish others. I'm sure the opposite would be true for someone really into history of Israel and the region. For me, it was often overwhelming with names and lacked the immersive atmosphere of a spy operation I was looking forward picking up this book. I might not be the best idea to listen to this as audiobook the way I did.
