In SECRETS, Daniel Ellsberg finally reveals the how and why behind his disclosure of the top-secret study about decision-making in Vietnam, which came to be known as "The Pentagon Papers." The story is fascinating, and one that anyone interested in Vietnam should hear. Ellsberg has a gruff voice, and he gives a true measure of himself as he reads his story. On the other hand, Dan Cashman reads the book as though it were a novel. While Cashman seems to understand and convey the passion that led Ellsberg to become a leading antiwar activist, at times he reads with a sense of happiness inconsistent with the events and inconsistent with Ellsberg's own tone.
