One response to “Intelligence Resources

  1. Hello August,
    I recently started listening to your podcast, after the first episode I was hooked. I work as a reporting manager for a large University (within the fundraising arena). Your podcast is my first exposure to CI. I would love to learn more and I’m wondering if there are any recommended books, articles, podcast (other than yours of course), that a person new to CI would find beneficial. A first steps guide type deal.
    Again, love your podcast, thank you for sharing your knowledge.
