The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) has made an audio book available for the first time on the agency’s Federal Digital System (FDsys). Published by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the audio book, Getting to Know the President: Intelligence Briefings of Presidential Candidates, 1952-2004, is a historical account of the information sharing process between the intelligence community and presidential candidates and presidents-elect during campaigns and administration transitions. The audio book is available in an .mp3 format on FDsys, a one-stop site to authentic, published Government information. The print version of the book is also available through GPO’s bookstore.
