The content was too general. Some of this is common sense. A few of the chapters were told as stories but the rest read like a text book or a case study article in spy craft magazine. I bought this book for a 3 hr drive and it kept me more or less entertained for under $5.

I expect that most people who'd be interested in a title like this are looking for specific technical information from a source experienced in the subject. But this book is full of vague, rambling prose and tall tales from a self-described professional writer who appears to have learned everything he knows from TV, crime novels and Wikipedia.

It's a little hard to review the information in this book without having the expertise to know how accurate it is, but there's certainly plenty of interesting factoids and food for thought. There's also a lot of anecdotes about situations the author has found himself in that ramble around eventually to a point, but which overall don't seem a great use of the book's space. (Though I did enjoy the numerous geek-culture references).
Let's just say it's an interesting introduction to the subject, which makes you look at some things differently, but that I wouldn't want be a contestant on "Running Man" armed only with this volume. The narrator is fine.
