If I want to get into Intel at a later date, can somebody recommend a few books about the "business" of intel? Or even possibly some links.

When he gets back from summer camp, ask Max. I have it on good authority (meaning I just made it up) that he will be heading down the intel trail after he gets commissioned. :D

Any preference to the type of intel, or basically just an intel 101 book?

Well, there is signals intelligence...

What side of intel- military or civilian? Which "flavor," IMINT, SIGINT, HUMINT, MASINT, etc., are you most interested in?

Here are a bunch of choices, ranging from intel/analysis, tact. intel, HUMINT, SIGINT, GEOINT, CT, CI, etc etc. Google the ones that don't have links and decide for yourself what you want to use. Obviously a good majority use US examples, and I don't know if that will help you in what you're looking for.
