Someone gave me a copy of "The Ultimate Spy" for Christmas, and I've been impressed by the quality of the book. The author, Keith Melton, is one of the guys out there who *really* does his research. This book has a ton of pictures and info tidbits, and as I flipped through it I learned a great deal about the history of spy equipment and techniques over the years.
