For six former heads of the Shin Bet (Israel's internal security service), these were not hypothetical questions but the realities and tormenting way of life for decades. In The Gatekeepers, which is based on extensive and lengthy interviews conducted to produce the award-winning film of the same name, six former heads of the Shin Bet speak with unprecedented candor on how they handled the toughest and tensest moments of their lives; on matters of life and death; on the missions they were involved in; on the historic opportunities for a better future that were missed by the leaders under whom they served; and the scars each of them bears until this very day. The Gatekeepers is a piercing and cruel self-examination of Israel's security establishment and of a nation that has lived by its sword for so many years but has lost its faith in its ability to lay it down.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
A subject I wanted to know more about and I have learned from listening to the book, but it was presented in an odd fashion - a series of interviews - and the narration was monotonous and did nothing to bring the key messages out.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
