Mr. Schott is a retired special agent. His expose of the bureau includes the peccadillos of J. Edgar Hoover (who ordered that any vehicle he rode in make no left turns, hence the title) and the fruitcakes that rose to the rank of supervisor and/or above. After reading the book, I felt bad for the rank and file agents and distain for anyone above them. Although Schott is too kind to say this directly, it appears from the examples that he gives that Hoover nurtured a toxic work environment where the closer you worked to Hoover, the more you feared indiscriminate firing or disciplinary transfer to places like Butte, MO for those used to living in urban environments.
Wat!? Wat!?
This is one of the best books ever written about Hoover and the FBI. He was the King and was treated as such since he had so much power. Very funny situations described from the author's first hand knowledge. Great sense of humor and made me laugh throughout the book. Highly recommend.

This is a true classic. Most material on the Hoover era of the FBI praise or damn him and are often written by a former member of the Hoover command team that feels they must improve their place in history by trying to convince the reader they were not part of the problem, This book is from the prospective of an agent in the field, trying to stay as far away from Washington as possible. Really outstanding and sad it is out of print.

This is the finest book written from the insider's view of the FBI during the Hoover Administration. It lists many of Hoover's quirks and gives insight into the organizational strengths and weaknesses up to the time of his death. This book would have never been written while Hoover was alive. Joe Schott provided a true classic that should be read by anyone in the criminal justice system, especially the FBI. A real collector's item.

Interesting reading. Learned many things about our top law enforcement agency. Some stories were humorous, some informational and some were shocking.

I never quite understood the environment and the stress FBI agents and more interestingly Special Agents in Charge worked in. This book was very insightful.
An FBI classic that I lent out 25 years ago and never got back. Needless to say, I don't lend out books any more.
