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 hidden in plain sight.
In this powerful new book, bestselling author and former CIA officer Jason Hanson takes the reader 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, Asia, and elsewhere, the book reveals how to:
* Achieve mental sharpness to be ready for anything
* Escape if taken hostage
* Set up a perfect safe site
* Assume a fake identity
* Master the "Weapons of Mass Influence" to recruit others, build rapport, and make allies when you need them most
With real-life spy drama that reads like a novel paired with expert practical techniques, Survive Like a Spy will keep you on the edge of your seat – and help you stay safe when you need it most.

These books are well worth it to get you thinking and keep yourself out of trouble. Go ahead, read them!
After purchasing his first book my wife had an uncomfortable experience in a mall. Like one story in the book, she phoned me just to have someone to talk to on the phone. I suggested that she run a SDR in the store, just like we had learned from Jason and practiced. When the results came up positive, she asked a store manager to escort her to her car. On the way home she ran another SDR, driving to a coffee shop for latte and then driving to a greeting card shop; no unusual activity. However, acting proactively gave her a terrific boost of confidence. Thank you Jason!
You may not live the life of a spy, I sure don't, but this information might just give you the edge you need to "survive like a spy".
