The Spycraft Manual is unique. There has never been a book that reveals the secret tradecraft techniques used by spies the world over. Until now. Intelligence in the field of counter-terrorism is a different and, in many aspects, arduous and dangerous task. The lives of many agents are in continuous danger. The rules of the game are cruel—as moral and ethical considerations are negated by the bullet. There is no honor between rivals on the streets of Beirut or Baghdad—only the most quickwitted survive. A modern spy must blend in, live among the enemy, speak the language, befriend, and exploit the enemy at very opportunity. They are required to be streetwise, rough, tough, and ruthless.

This book cost more than is necessary. Nothing in there you can't get out of a good spy novel, and more entertainingly! (No offense to those in the field.) Read full review
