"CIA Manual Of Trickery And Deception" Declassified, Now On Sale

Posted: Updated:

If you have ever wanted to learn how to slink around unnoticed and send hidden signals like a real CIA agent during the Cold War, then you are in luck. Wired's Danger Room reveals that the wonderfully titled "CIA Manual of Trickery and Deception" has now been declassified and is for sale to the general public.

Written by famous magician John Mulholland, it was believed that the Agency destroyed all copies in 1973. Thankfully for potential magicians and spies alike, one copy survived.

Wired has more details on the document (including on how it was part of a larger project to control people's minds), and you can buy the book from Amazon here. (Via Boing Boing)
