Publisher's Summary

Written by one of its own graduates, Class 11: Inside the CIA's First Post-9/11 Spy Class is an insider's view of the first CIA training class after September 11, 2001 - a look at the most elite and secretive espionage training program in the country. Like all Americans, T. J. Waters was stunned, angry, and grief stricken by the terrorist attacks of September 11. More than that, he wanted to take action to help prevent such an event from ever happening again. Waters was not alone. In the weeks following the attacks, the Central Intelligence Agency received over 150,000 résumés from people wanting to serve their nation as spies. More than 100 students were admitted to the CIA's Clandestine Service to become Class 11, the first training class after the terrorist event.
It was the largest and most diverse class in the agency's history. Joining Waters were a World Trade Center victim's fiancée, an NFL alumnus, a New York City comedian, a college athletics coach, a hostage negotiator, and a single mother. Class 11 is the real story of how this band of everyday Americans joined together to endure the challenge of a lifetime and serve their country. Waters takes readers behind the scenes as the trainees learn methods of subterfuge, master disguises, withstand interrogations, and cross into hostile territory without being detected.
Class 11 is a fascinating and moving portrait of an extraordinary group of Americans with the courage and resolve to make a difference in the war on terror.

Interesting story but...

The narrator was horrible! Interestingly enough, the author answers questions at the end of the audio book. He sounds like you would expect a CIA agent to sound. The narrator makes a true story sound like fiction.

I found the story itself to be very interesting. I would have given it another star if the author had also been the narrator.

CIA (Can't Intelligently approve)

I was disappointed in this book. I expected to hear a lot about how the CIA works and some of their gadgets. But a lot of it was about weddings and parties.
