A fast-paced, behind-the-scenes narrative that tells the inside story of the CIA leak scandal and how the Bush administration used bad intelligence to sell, and then justify, a war that has changed America and the world. Written by veteran reporters Michael Isikoff and David Corn, Hubris takes the reader behind the scenes, far behind, to reveal and illuminate the controversial decisions and turf battles that were fought in the highest circles and most covert corners of the Bush administration as officials planned and then sought to defend the invasion of Iraq. Hubris connects the dots between George W. Bush's determination to get rid of Saddam Hussein; the role of new-conservatives in pushing the case for war, the manipulations of Iraqi exiles. And the outing of a CIA officer, which led to the indictment of a top White House official and turmoil at the nation's number-one newspaper.

Highly recommend. A book all of us should read/listen to. NOT boring or textbook-y.
