"'Trade Craft' refers to a functional yet mythical set of skills every warrior, operator or operative hopes to develop and master as they execute the duties of their trade; Jason Hanson has forgotten more trade craft than most will ever know. I have read many books and manuals focused on teaching and explaining these skill sets, but few hit the mark as cleanly, effectively and as easily digestible as Spy Secrets. This book is overflowing with practical knowledge and teaching points that can and will save your life. Navy SEALs study all of the elements from this book, but I was stunned to glean so many secrets of the trade that will now join my bag of tricks on and off the battlefield."
--Rorke Denver, Navy SEAL and New York Times bestselling author of Damn Few
