User reviews about this book
Another example why "normal" people shouldn't write a book
The story itself is fascinating, but the execution was just terrible. There is a reason ghostwriters exist!!!!!!!
The story is all over the place - it is neither a biography of tony Mendez (which probably would be a great read...) nor is it a story just about Argo. It jumps from one to the other, and then I have to assume that there is A LOT of info that mr Mendez can't talk about since it is still classified. At least - I hope there is, since otherwise all he did during his time at the CIA was play makeup artist or forge passports. And if that is the case, I want a tax refund - from his description, the CIA isn't anything more than a boy scout organization concerned with dressing up defectors in foreign countries and putting them on airplanes right under the eyes of hostile governments.
This is probably one of the few examples where the movie is going to be better than the book.
I could not put this down. It is an amazing read. A gripping page turner. I think my heart stopped a few times from all of the nail-biting excitement. I would highly recommend this book.
Amazing easy read book about a very interesting time in US history. Mendez makes the story come alive.
This is a very well written, fast paced book. I really couldn't put it down. Don't miss out on this read.
This book is a great read! It provides good insight to a tragic chapter of American History.
