User reviews about the book
An outstanding story
“ Truth to Power” says it all....this book is a well written, honest and open discussion of strength, weakness, success and failure! It contains hard truths that the country needs to hear and accept... it definitely isn’t “fake news” or “ alternative facts.”
Facts and Fears
A beautifully written story of a life and career well-lived by an extraordinary man and true patriot. This book gave me an intimate look at how US Intel works, something I did not believe possible given the very nature of the discipline. I now understand more than ever the critical nature of these institutions and how they operate -thanks to Director Clapper- in an integrative manner to protect us all. Most of all, he focuses on the danger the Russians pose, especially through their sowing of disinformation on various media platforms, and that each of us must take responsibility for demanding action to mitigate the threats. This was a long book but one I could not put down; I recommend it very highly to others who want to better understand the role the Intel community holds in keeping us safe.
A Brave American Speaks...
By Bob Magnant
Jim Clapper sees current Administration actions as destabilizing to our traditional institutions and degrading to our career employees. I wish that more Americans would speak out against those who are determined to take down our predecessors and destroy the things that we have created to build a better world. I am a little depressed thinking about why we haven’t seen more adults like Jim Clapper and his generation speaking out against the Trump lackeys. In 'Facts and Fears', Clapper describes the kind of 'growing up American' that I can relate to. And when he proudly speaks out about his 70 years in the intelligence family, I feel the sincerity of his words. This kind of historical perspective should be 'required reading’ for all Americans.

The contents in this book are nothing more than a cover up for his partisan politics and bring shame to our country!
The man who will soon be dressed in an orange jumpsuit,
makes an attempt at legitimizing his seditious ways. The book does give some interesting insight into the 3 letter agencies we have heard so much about of late. However, we the people understand the Sedition that has been implemented by the top brass of these agencies. It’s hard to believe this man.
Honest and direct
Although intel surveillance and analysis is an essential ingredient in many literary works, this book demonstrates the reward for those who believe in the saying “Anyone can talk the talk, not everyone can walk the walk”. This author has “walked the walk”.
