On sale now on Amazon-dot-com!


Although, I'm sure there isn't any current information in here to leak out... this will be an interesting read from back in the 50's on one of the long-lost 'Cold War' era books.

A must for all would-be spies is the CIA handbook The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception. However, it is a little dated. It was prepared in the early 1950s during the early years of the Cold War. The CIA paid one of America’s most famous magicians, John Mulholland, $3,000 to help them develop covert techniques to fool the Russians. The original handbook was believed lost but thanks to former CIA gadgeteer Bob Wallace and renowned spycraft historian H. Keith Melton, The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception is now available to everyone and has gone on sale (HarperCollins $24.99) Read more: network.nationalpost.com... 2 The New Financial Post Stock Market Challenge starts in October.

25 dollars for an outdated manual on "trickery" from before I was even born?

If I'm going to waste money, it's going to be on cigs and liquor. Thanks!
