Review "Another valuable book by John Braddock following the thread of strategy, decision making, risk, and situations where you can use each model. The lessons are valuable for their practical usefulness." - Michael Nelson "Not only does the author take a complex subject and distill it down to make it easily digestible, the examples are very entertaining." - Matt Bailey "I can't decide if this book is more entertaining than informative or more informative than entertaining . . . This is the third in the A Spy's Guide series, and I think it's the most useful so far. Each book has kept me on the edge of my seat while I'm learning business and life tools." - William Hennessy From the Author This is the most "operational" of my books. It talks about being in alias, detecting surveillance, handling sources and how to smuggle intelligence documents out when you weren't ready for them. Plus, there are sections on Iran's effort to get a nuclear bomb, the Cuban Missile Crisis and how a colleague handled a checkpoint attack in a war zone. I think you'll find it useful. After you read it, send me an email and tell me what you think. About the Author John Braddock was a case officer at the CIA.
