Everyone loves a good spy story, but most of the ones we hear are fictional. That's because the most dangerous and important spycraft is done in secret, often without anyone even noticing.
In Survive Like a Spy, best-selling author and former CIA officer Jason Hanson takes the listener deep inside the world of espionage, revealing true stories and expert tactics from real agents engaged in life-threatening missions around the world.
With breathtaking accounts of spy missions in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Korea, Japan, and elsewhere, the book reveals how to:
Achieve mental sharpness to be ready for anything
Escape if taken hostage
Defend yourself if detailed by foreign cops
Set up a perfect safe site
Assume a fake identity
Master the "Weapons of Mass Influence" to recruit others to build rapport and make allies when you need them most
With real-life spy drama that sounds like a novel paired with expert practical techniques, Survive Like a Spy is the perfect listen for fans of espionage as well as anyone who wants to stay safe in a fast-changing world.

Decent but not great
Too many spook stories, attempts to make the case stories sound “real” like when he lists time and month (but not year) , brief descriptions of subjects - attempting to appear to read from a case file
You can also identify in advance when he talks up some ultra cool spy tool - and then proceeds to advertise it available on his web site. All you have to do is give him some personal and credit card info - stuff he warns you about giving away in the book. Many items are “free”you just have to pay for shipping (Credit card details grabbed, monthly, expensive “newsletter” subscription added)
That said, author appears qualified on the subjects covered and has to make a living.
Book does come with some occasional useful info.

Fantastic book, practical tips, too much marketing
The first time the author mentioned a website where you could get a free tactical bag I thought “oh cool!” Then I realized he was trying to sell me more stuff. As the book progressed more websites than I can count were mentioned trying to sell stuff. While I appreciate the info it got a bit overbearing and felt like an infomercial at times. Just leave a master list at the back please!
That said, I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone! It has interesting spy stories and is loaded with practical tips anyone can put into action to stay safer in this crazy world we live in. I’d give it 5 stars were it not for the infomercial tone in places.
