The most interesting part of the book dealt with the hiring process and the training program at Quantico Once he started discussing his duties at the San Diego Office, he tended to get a little preachy about his views on border patrol and how the Bureau should make their field assignments I don t have the interest in researching this, but I ll venture a guess that the book is self published because the editing proofreading is so frequently bad that it significantly detracts from the book Exam The most interesting part of the book dealt with the hiring process and the training program at

period of time my supervisor granted them two weeks of my time to help out Working with those Special Agents was the highlight of my 16 years in working for a completely different governmental agency, and I learned to respect the FBI Special Agents because of their professionalism, hard work, and dedication to their job and country With this being said, when I came across Mr Sellers book, I was excited This excitement, unfortunately, was short lived, as it was clear that Me Sellers was way out of his element, and I had to ask myself how did he ever pass the Academy training The first section of the book focuses on his wish to be an FBI Special Agent, his being chosen to attend the Academy, and his time there Throughout this section, he criticized their training, whined about how difficult it was for him, a larger man than most there, to do the knuckle push ups, etc My goshwhat did he expect I mean, he was attending the prestigious FBI Academy to be a highly trained, specialized police officer It was as if he was stuck in a child like hero worship mode and didn t get a reality check Even after he had successfully passed through the academy s rigorous training, his comments made it seem as if he thought that he would have a nine to five job and would be home with his wife and pets instead of being called out at all hours I have to say that I have never in my life read a non fiction book of this type whereas the author so mistook what the actual job he had would entail I mean, seriously a grown man who became an FBI Agent didn t realize the danger of the job I find this, his accounting, to be ridiculously childish He really wanted to be an IT personso why didn t he request that instead of being a gun toting agent I want to ask those at the Academy how this man even made it though because, surely they saw his inability to handle such a high stress job As others have pointed out on , his chapters, at least in later chapters, were very short, and he continually discussed his preference of being in the office rather than out in the field in dangerous situations In many instances, he repeated himself, making the book somewhat of a drudgery to read And, while he had a good grasp of how to use punctuation and he is articulate, there are chapters in which it appeared that they were not reviewed or edited, and needed the punctuation changed I was thoroughly disappointed in the book, especially after having seen Special Agents in action, so to speak June 2, 2018A review by Anthony T Riggio of the book Eyes Pried Open Rookie FBI Agent written by Vincent

by Anthony T Riggio of the book Eyes Pried Open Rookie FBI Agent written by Vincent Sellers.I purchased this book recently from Kindle As a retired Agent, I was searching for something about the FBI Reading the overall description of this book on , I decided to purchase it as my next book to read I was not disappointed in the story and it was well written I was, however, disappointed in the conclusion but for personal reasons only.When I read a book written by a current and or a former retired Agent, I wonder if the author ran the book through the FBI s per publication review, especially since it details so many details about Agents training and field work Some authors do and some do not but because this book details so many details and techniques, I wondered Notwithstanding, I read the book and found it an enjoyable trip down memory lane.Unlike the author Vincent Sellers, I never wanted to be an FBI Agent but fell into the job because I was no longer enad with the practice of law and wanted out of New York When I was contacted by the New York Office and asked if I wanted to be an FBI Agent, I jumped at the chance provided I would be sent anyplace but New York In reading Sellars description of training at Quantico, it engendered memories both warm and troubling I almost quit the second week but stuck it out and became the second best choice I ever made, the first being marrying my wife.Sellars description of training was spot on and would provide excellent details for those thinking about the FBI Agents career His recollections of marrying Jennifer reminded me of how much a wife sacrifices to be married to an FBI Agent It is a tough existence for her.Sellars, who was educated as a Industrial Engineer was rudely awakened at how demanding and dangerous his new life was after being sent to San Diego, California He was assigned to a Violent Crime and Major Offenses Squad not quite a good fit for someone who was detail and solution oriented Afitting assigned might have been a White Collar Crime Squad But young new agents have very little choice and in many respects Agents given this kind assignment, many would give there eye teeth to have been given.Sellars, however accomplished some excellent results in his work and had the potential for developing an excellent background, even if he was subsequently assigned to a different squad or office.As the reader reads of his experiences and the great strain it put on his marriage and personal tranquility, it will become manifest why he ultimately resigned after two years as an FBI Agent I do not criticize Sellars for this decision, as I have seen in my, twenty four years as an agent and manager, many good reasons why Agents leave I once told an Agent he would regret leaving and almost a year after he left, he contacted me for help getting back in He was reinstated, since it was less than a year since he resigned He was subsequently assigned to a field office to a Violent Crime Major Offenses squad and shortly thereafter he was killed in a local police station working with the locals on cold cases , when a person walked in with a Mac 10 machine gun and shot him and killed two others for no rational reason.I believe the reader will get good insight into some of the work FBI Agents are involved with and find this an easy and satisfying read I gave this book Five Stars out of Five Disappointed in this book The author was disappointed in his career choice Repetitive writing from a gentleman who was in the FBI less than 2 years This would have made a better short story or personal journal He frequently gave a negative critcal view of FBI, but high praise for himself Disappointed in this book The author was disappointed in his career choice Repetitive writing

and insightful It s not bad A look into how one man joins the FBI, the punishing exercises at Academy through to being postedThe book itself is pretty good, there s a few typos and some of the chapters are just 1 pagers which make them a bit pointless There s also not enough meaty stories, some of the chapters start talking about a particular subject then it turns into but fortunately nothing like this happened to me Which is a bit of an anti climax. This is a candid and up to date account of what it s like to apply, join, be trained by, and work for the FBI as a special agent It s also about the reasons that new agents leave when they find that the FBI expects them to be agents first and everything else second I d recommend this to the numerous folks who have aspirations of joining the FBI after watching The X Files and Criminal Minds Those shows may be great entertainment, but they don t tell you much about the real FBI.
