This is NOT “FIction”–Explosive Valuable Insights,
I am a former spy, lived overseas for twenty years as the son of an oil engineer and executive, then another ten as a spy and Marine Corps infantry officer. This book is REAL. This book is so good that it should be required reading at the Foreign Service Institute where we train our diplomats, at the clandestine training facility for the CIA, and at universities. We continue to send out to the world naive young white boys that have no clue about the real world.
This book *is* the real world. Do not be put off by the shipping time, something Amazon does when the book is not physically stored in the USA. I got my copy in less than 10 days, and it was worth the wait.
Two other books that complement this are Robert Young Pelton's “World's Most Dangerous Places,” and John Perkin's “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man.”
