Parts of this Book Will Make you Uncomfortable May 5 2011
By Karl @ The Startup Daily - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The principles and techniques used by military and civilian intelligence operatives; profiling, interrogation, hostage negotiation, spying, intelligence research, are all discussed, and how they can be applied in the business environment.

Parts of this book will make you uncomfortable. I actually felt a bit like a cop for a few day after reading it. The tone is a bit cold and manipulative for my taste, yet there is no denying that many of these techniques are effective.

Despite my trouble with the approach--which I'm sure works fine for a lot of people--there were plenty of actionable tips inside.

Just remember this quote (source unknown): "It's only a dog eat dog world--if you are a dog."

Decent, Military tone to book March 30 2011
By Steven Rader - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is decent, and a fairly quick read. It mainly focuses on Military practices and attempts to apply them to business. Worth a look, but nothing amazing.

Most Dangerous? May 27 2013
By Scott Ziegler - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the book as it posits some very good points on playing the game of business with your eyes open. The book encourages the reader to have a plan for what you want and provides the tactical knowledge to help gain your desires. It is a primer on information gathering techniques to advance your career.

Ugh! Not for professionals Jan. 23 2013
By jumpy1 - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Wow, this book is difficult to get through. Poorly written, poorly organized, it's difficult to get to the nuggets of useful information. There are a few pages (like, 3) of useful information in here, but not enough to give it even 3 stars.

Early on, it is peppered with ignorance about political figures, celebrities, and basic principles of advertising (all delivered in an arrogant tone) to somehow prove his point of view. It's difficult, as someone who actually knows backgrounds and facts about what he's saying, to keep reading, as each misstatement only makes him seem that much more irrelevant--I mean, if the two authors and the editors didn't feel the need to do basic fact-checking on easily obtained public information, just how professional can they be?

Because of the highly rated reviews, I slogged on, hoping to get to something useful. I did find about a page worth explaining a neat trick to use in order to find out if the person you are speaking with is telling you the truth and a couple other pages on determining how to communicate to different people. Information you could find elsewhere, in fact, information that anyone can find anywhere. Except here, you find it hidden in run-on stories filled with arrogant statements, about the military that are of little use when he gets to the point.

I deeply regret the couple of hours spent reading this nonsense.

Excellent. Highly Recommended. June 26 2012
By Brooke - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book on the Kindle along with How to Become an Expert on Anything in Two Hours by the same authors. I have job interviews coming up and I'm very glad I purchased both books. Highly recommended for anyone in management.

Good review of business skills I wish more folks had. Then again, I'm glad they don't.
