Official and Confidential: The Secret Life of J. nfounded, spurious. In an era when homosexuality is out of the closet, such outrage is perhaps overheated.

Mafia bosses obtained information about Hoover's sex life and used it for decades to keep the FBI at ba.

Even now, Assistant Director Mike Kortan said only that ‘vague rumours and fabrications’ on the subject were backed up by ‘no evidence in the historical recor. The Society of Former Special Agents sniffed that a ‘kissing scene’ said to be in J. Edgar had led it to reassess the ‘tacit approval’ it had given to the movie.

In life, Hoover denied time and again that there were such "secret dossiers". The movie J Edgar is out on 20 January. Acting Attorney General Laurence Silberman, the first person to peruse the secret files after Hoover's death in 1972, learned otherwise.

What a surprise to learn what a devious man he was. Blackmailed nearly every congressman and all of the presidents he served. Never cooperated with the newly formed CIA and we were given good early warnings about Pearl Harbor that was ignored by Hoover. I truly believe he worked with the MOB to eliminate the Kennedy's and was a master at coverup and blackmail. He is one of the worst scoundrals that ever worked for the USA.

Great read !! More people should read this and learn who J Edgar Hoover really was and he should never have been allowed to have the free reign in government that he had. Certainly explains why the mob was not pursued by the FBI and the criminal closeness of Hoover to the top mobsters. Opens a lot questions and suspects in the death of Marilyn Monroe and JFK.
This really is a MUST read.

A well-researched well documented epic of Hoover's smutty secret life. The fact that the FBI headquarters is still named after him is an anathema to this reader. Hoover deserves neither praise nor honor for subverting the ideals upon which this country was founded. Summers book is a clear and accurate indictment of his pathological personality and its damage it caused to many individuals as well as the freedoms we claim this country embraces.

Well written and researched. After reading this I have absolutely no faith in poltitians and wouldn't walk across the street to shake ones hand. This book wiped out all faith I had in the people we continue to elect and send to Washington. The only thing l think that will save my faith in our government is to put four or six year term limits on all congressional positions but of course that will never happen. They will never give up their power.

This book is a fire cracker. The author uncovers new material about the same excesses of Hoover and then is able to make a balanced condemnation of his gestapo reign. He was no better than the secret police in a tinpot dictatorship. He destroyed innocent lives. He ruined good people. He was a two bit thief. US History needs to purge him the way that soviet history purged Stalin ....... TERRIFIC READ.

This book gives an interesting and surprising look at one of the most powerful men in our government. Much seems unbelievable however it is all documented A very interesting read to say the least

Unbelievable the most corrupt man in US politics for most of his time in office was the boss of the FBI!
I've heard the stories about Hoover over the years, but this book goes far beyond anything I could have imagined. If even half of what was written in this book is to be believed Hoover was truly a troubled and troubling man to the government he professed to serve and protect.
