Publisher's Summary

The Mossad is widely recognized today as the best intelligence service in the world. It is also the most enigmatic, shrouded in secrecy. In Mossad, authors MichaelBar-Zohar and Nissim Mishal take us behind the closed curtain with riveting, eye-opening, boots-on-the-ground accounts of the most dangerous, most crucial missions in the agency's 60-year history. These are real Mission: Impossible true stories brimming with high-octane action - from the breathtaking capture of Nazi executioner Adolf Eichmann to the recent elimination of key Iranian nuclear scientists.

Anyone who is fascinated by the world of international espionage, intelligence, and covert black-ops warfare will find Mossad electrifying.

    "Israeli Intelligence through Iraeli Eyes"

    The best thing about the book are the stories. They are all interesting and several are excellent. The way the book is organized prevents the authors from developing characters, however, and the book sometimes fails to place stories in their correct political / security context. However, the book's high-tempo, and the excellent access the authors appear to have to the participants, more than compensates for these limitations. My biggest knock is that the book is self-congratulatory, and at times the author's own political agenda seems to the surface. The authors offer little depth, and few strategic insights, though they provide enough detail, action, and clandestine nuggets to almost overcome that problem.

    "Not Easy without some prior knowledge. Worth it."

    Makes one wonder what we don't know. Not just the great successes but the blunders are in here too. Will probably re-listen several times.

    "Amazing Real Stories"

    This is an absolutely fascinating book that covers Mossad missions from the formation of Israel to the present. The book is well written and the story moves quickly. The narration is excellent. It is very hard to put down.

    The book is generally positive about the agency, but not fawning. Flawed missions are discussed candidly.

    One comes away with a very definite view that the U.S. owes much to Israel and the Mossad, especially given our fumbled foreign policy of the last ten years through two diametrically different administrations.

    "Very good"

    Good stories, some I'd heard, but many not. They tried to place each one in its historical context, which Mossad leader, which Prime Minister, etc., at the time. It's my second book on this topic (Gideon's Spies) and I still enjoyed it very much. I know little about the correct pronunciation of words in this culture, but I'm pretty sure Simon Wiesenthal's first name doesn't sound exactly the same as 'Simone' Signoret or 'Simone' De Beauvoir. Surely not! But the mispronunciations didn't spoil the book, just made me wonder.

    Ten movies worth of stories here. Very interesting to hear all the details many years after the headlines. I recommend.

    Extremely interesting and exciting. Excellent insider knowledge. Very good to know there's nobody more interested in maintaining Israel's security than the Mossad, regardless of fickle world opinion.

    "Excellent Account of The Mossad"

    This is a very good and detailed history of numerous covert Mossad missions. The authors place the events in both their current and historical perspectives. It is much more updated than numerous prior books on the Mossad, probably due to more information being released. Do not be afraid to try this book if you have already read older accounts.

    Would you listen to Mossad again? Why?

    Worthy of a great detailed historical documentary AKA novel.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mossad?

    Chapter 18 will shake everyone up.


    What about Benjamin Isaac’s performance did you like?

    Fitting the role of a Mossad agent and relaying the truth and drama of the book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The killing of each terrorist- dung-heap made me cheer.


    Any additional comments?

    A book filled with great detail and a ticking clock. The authors are the real dudes!

    One of those rare listens that you genuinely cannot stop listening too. Brilliant book with details I would never expect from secret service missions. You could not be disappointed with this book.

    "Interesting"

    This book is a celebration of Mossad. You go into it knowing that but keen on hearing the missions and stories. None the less I enjoyed the book and found it very interesting in content and in aspects of the middle east I was un-aware of. I have to add that what I think what let it down the most was the narration, it's not particularly well read. However if you like reading/listening to non-fiction espionage novels, you probably will enjoy this.

    "Dreary"

    An insipid and uninspiring book read in a monotone voice. It was a struggle to get to the end.

    It managed to make spying and Mossad feel as interesting as a piece of dry toast. Avoid.
