How to Think Like A Spy is a good book!!

How to Think Like A Spy is a good book on the teaching of technique of spying. The book initially starts as a word in self protection and self defense in some of the offensive situations and then moves on how to dress, act and think like a spy. The book is good for laymen who want to know how to act in moments of stress and natural and man made hazards. I liked the chapter that told me how to intruder proof my home in the best possible manner. However, some of the things on acting and being like a spy was not totally fresh such as the info on how to act and mingle like a local at a foreign location to avoid standing out in the crowd and how to use a different pace than other people when walking. Still, the book is very interesting to listen. Moreover, it is short and could be thought as the first step towards a career as spy.

Understandable!

So I received this book as a gift and thought it was very sweet. But there are some important things I think the listener should know before continuing.

The book is designed to help you prepare, prevent, and act during stressful situations. Like natural disasters or home invasions. Honestly, I do not think so many people experience these situations that a book needs to be written about it. These are rare occurrences and can stir up panic in people that have nothing to worry about.

Having said that, for people who can logically read this book without wondering if their neighbor too is a spy, I think it is great. There is a lot of interesting techniques, knowledge, and sort of philosophy behind the “spy secrets” that I just found completely interesting. Good book, but not for everyone.

Step by step instructions ..

It is excellent listening material for not only adults who are a little innocent about cyber attacks, but also young people who maybe too trusting or innocent of how bad guys really work. Or even a refresher on what we already know, but need to be told again.

Happy to write a review for this book.

Being a spy is serious business, and not everyone is cut out for this kind of work. But there are traits that every good spy requires that would benefit all of us. Daniel Brand gives us a general idea of what necessitates a secret agent in How to Think Like a Spy. Most of the contents in this book are either how to be aware of your surroundings or how to prepare to take action.I find this book fun and informative, even listening captions to my children to have them practice. Daniel Brand explains how he can read body language, but I found this great for teaching how to control your body language so you aren’t so readable and become a victim yourself.

Well done

An overview of the content demonstrates the extent of topics/situations Daniel addresses in teaching us how to think like a spy - Thinking to Survive, Situational Awareness Skills, Home Security Skills, Travel Safety Skills, Social Engineering Skills, Self-Defense Skills, Escape and Evade Skills, and Survival Driving Tips. In each of these sections Daniel offers excellent examples of each skill he teaches – a fact that makes learning the mindset of the spy so well that we will always feel prepared. And in the end the lessons taught and learned will instill
a higher level of self-confidence – one of the most efficient tools for protecting both the individual and the family and friends. A very helpful book to add to the library of self-help books.

outstanding!! Book

In his Introduction Daniel shares his intentions – ‘Whether you were looking for a fun listen or seeking detailed and under the radar information regarding what it takes to become a successful spy, then you are in for a real treat! Each of the chapters in this book will go through the most crucial areas of expertise that today’s spies in action must have. While the television shows that you avidly watch may give you a good look at the everyday agendas of the average spy, they really do not do a great job at portraying a realistic standpoint. This book will help you to dive right into the back pocket of what a run-of-the-mill spy does as they fulfill missions, save the world, and make the world a better place to dwell! You never know when you will fall into a delicate predicament that will require knowledge beyond your reach. The information within this book will help you to survive unique situations and will mold you into a more observant human being. While there might be a few books on the life of a spy, this is the only one written in a friendly, everyday tone that will help the average Joe become a seasoned agent in their free time. This book is all about developing the proper mindset that is required of one to make themselves into a prosperous detective.’ And he keeps his promise: by book’s end we have a keen idea of how to think like a spy and thereby brace ourselves against their antics.

One of the best!

Author Daniel Brand offers no biographical information by which we might assess his credentials for teaching us spy secrets, but that matters little when listening this well informed, accessible, practical manual on how to protect ourselves and those around us.

Great resource!

I would recommend it to almost anyone, as it is a short, concise listen with some interesting points. That said, keep in mind it is more application than theory, and some information here demands critical thinking to properly apply.

Great Grab!!!

This book is a starting point. Anyone wishing to employ these methods likely requires both practice and further listening. The book does not have suggestions for other books on the subject or a bibliography.

Awesome! I got it now!

I thought this was a great book. I listened it on Audible. I shared the principles with my daughter. The book provides some very simple processes and steps to analytical-systemic thinking. It may seem a little simplified to some. But the philosophies and methods can be applied to simple to difficult issues.

Five stars!

I chose this book to improve my own thinking. After all, what works for a spy would probably work for me. The way the author lays out the book to explain good thinking is interspersed with a spy story and completely pulls you into the suspense. You come away with "a positive sum" result.

Decent book!

A quick look into how the mind generally operates, weather you know it or not. In this example, the author in his action, shows no signs of fear. An important notation to be made. Choosing to not be afraid is not always a choice one consciously makes or can overcome easily. I can't wait to listen the next book on strategy. Job well done to the author, it was indeed worth the price.

The ultimate guide!

I bought the book, without much thought to its purpose. I found it to be enjoyably frustrating. There was a story mixed with a tutorial (refresher course) on thinking. Deep into the plot? Then the tutorial would intercede. At the end I felt okay, I got my money's worth. Win-sum.
