Mediocre at best
Over half of this book focuses on theory that is of no help to learning a foreign language. There is also way too much time spent on the history of langauges and language families. The author also spends time helping you to form connections between English words and words in Spanish and German. Great if that's what you are studying...The problem with this book is that it doesn't reveal any "secrets" it's all common sense information. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

Unfortunately this is a dry language and memory book macquerading behind the glamour of spying. There is little or nothing to link it to the world of espionage and sadly little of use in terms of language instruction.
