Description
Following the September 11th, 2001 Al Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the author, then the president of a private consulting firm specializing in intelligence collection and training, joined the Central Intelligence Agency's Clandestine Service Training Program along with about a hundred others. In this book, he describes those experiences for a popular audience, focusing on the personalities he encountered, rather than tradecraft. As he describes it, each chapter "is a month's mix of training, class bonding, personal reflection, and world events viewed through one officer's perspective."

A gripping insider's look at the post-9/11 CIA In the weeks following the attacks of 9/11, the Central Intelligence Agency received over 150,000 résumés from people wanting to serve their nation. T. J. Waters became one of more than a hundred students admitted into the CIA's Clandestine Service to become Class 11, the first post- 9/11 training class. Filled with more information about the CIA's Clandestine Service Training Program than has ever been allowed into the public domain, Waters takes readers behind closed doors, where the trainees learned methods of subterfuge, mastering disguises, how to withstand interrogations, and how to cross into hostile territory undetected—and provides a moving portrait of ordinary Americans with the courage and determination to go to any lengths to protect their country.
