I was dissapointed. I was hoping to get more of an overview of thier lives. Instead, they were asked questions by a moderator and we just got bits and pieces of things that were disjointed.
Dayna seemed generally disconnected and uninterested. She gave the impression that Robert talked her into retiring against her true wishes and I got the feeling that he talked her into going on this tour too.
I suppose that had I read the book first I might have been able to connect the dots better. But to be honest, the lackluster content of the talk didn't do much to entice me to buy the book.
A more thought out put together talk would have been much better. Sorry folks, although it sounded very interesting, it didn't deliver. I wouldn't recommend it......

- On The Company We Keep: “Funny, frightening, ironic, and deeply moving, this is an utterly engrossing thrill ride,” —Richard North Patterson, author of Degree of Guilt
Moderated by Barry Eisler, Former CIA Directorate of Operations, Creator, John Rain series; Author, Inside Out
Married couple and former CIA agents Dayna & Robert Baer discuss their lives as spies and as a married couple.
Robert Baer is the author of three New York Times best-sellers: See No Evil, Sleeping With the Devil, and The Devil We Know. He has become one of the most authoritative voices on American intelligence.
Robert's book See No Evil inspired the hit film Syriana starring George Clooney.
Robert and Dayna's new book, The Company We Keep, is unlike any previous account of life in the CIA.
