Fascinating vignettes about global corporate intel gathering. Often well told. But it's essentially a bunch of long-form articles, generally the same story arcs in each chapter, with no overarching story. The conclusion is rushed and almost out of place. But I'd recommend it as a good read because the topic is so novel and the authors research is well done. One note on the narrator: he's great but conspicuously mispronounces common and easily researchable words/names central to the text: Vladimir Putin, Louis Brandeis, and others.
What did you like best about Broker, Trader, Lawyer, Spy: The Secret World of Corporate Espionage? What did you like least?
I enjoyed the descriptive history of investigation and spying. The employment of taxpayer trained government officials in the private sector working toward whoever pays the highest dollar rather than serving the country is offensive. These spies and mercenaries are no patriots and are owed nothing by their country.
Do you think Broker, Trader, Lawyer, Spy: The Secret World of Corporate Espionage needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Any additional comments?
It was well performed.
