But, much like Miyomoto Musashi's BOOK OF FIVE RINGS, GOING UNDERCOVER is not only the "real deal" for use in police work and espionage, it can be applied to any situation which calls for obtaining information without your opponent knowing what you're doing. Business- men, politicians and countless other men and women in competitive arenas have adapted VanCook's concepts and made them work. So, whether you're a cop making an illegal drug case, a spy trying to learn where a terrorist cell plans to strike next, or just trying to underbid your competitor in order to obtain a lucrative business contract, don't just read GOING UNDERCOVER ---study it."

VanCook focuses on the concerns of the undercover officer, providing clear, step-by-step instructions for developing an alternate identity with a personality that is flexible enough to work in a wide variety of environments, from the barroom to the boardroom. From this book you'll learn how to deal with many vital aspects of undercover operations. "I found it to be not only authentic, but also very well written." --Col. Rex Applegate "I have never read so true a police text as Jerry VanCook's GOING UNDERCOVER. It should be read by all police officers, both uniformed and plainclothes.
