Written by one of its own graduates, Class 11: Inside the CIA's First Post-9/11 Spy Class is an insider's view of the first CIA training class after September 11, 2001 - a look at the most elite and secretive espionage training program in the country.

Like all Americans, T. J. Waters was stunned, angry, and grief stricken by the terrorist attacks of September 11. More than that, he wanted to take action to help prevent such an event from ever happening again. Waters was not alone. In the weeks following the attacks, the Central Intelligence Agency received over 150,000 résumés from people wanting to serve their nation as spies. More than 100 students were admitted to the CIA's Clandestine Service to become Class 11, the first training class after the terrorist event.

It was the largest and most diverse class in the agency's history. Joining Waters were a World Trade Center victim's fiancée, an NFL alumnus, a New York City comedian, a college athletics coach, a hostage negotiator, and a single mother. Class 11 is the real story of how this band of everyday Americans joined together to endure the challenge of a lifetime and serve their country. Waters takes readers behind the scenes as the trainees learn methods of subterfuge, master disguises, withstand interrogations, and cross into hostile territory without being detected.

Class 11 is a fascinating and moving portrait of an extraordinary group of Americans with the courage and resolve to make a difference in the war on terror.

    " Brief , not very in depth but a good intro to what the CIA does or doesn't do. "

    " Great behind-the-scenes spy school stories. Especially intersting since this was the first class of spies to study at the CIA after 9/11. "

    " I'm in between three and four stars. I enjoyed reading this, and found it entertaining and informative. It was nice to get an idea of what's fact or fiction in the ever glamorized spy world. I have no doubt, however, that this was heavily edited; it's the CIA, who would expect anything less. "
