Hi. I see you’re reading the back of my book. This tells me that you either:
A) are hoping to find a brief summary of what to expect from a how-to book by Sterling Archer, the world’s greatest secret agent, or B) don’t know how books work.
If your answer was “A,” your best bet is probably the table ofcontents, which is where you’ll find the “contents” of this booklisted in a convenient, easy-to-read “table” format. So maybe gocheck that out for a minute and then come back here. I’ll wait. . . .
Pretty cool, right? What other book will teach you how to dressproperly and how to drive an elephant? How to field strip an AK-47and how to haggle with a Thai prostitute—in her native tongue?How to pilot an airboat and how to make about a million deliciouscocktails, including a Molotov one? How to kill a guy and how toprepare a fabulous brunch? Plus how to do tons of other stuff thatI forgot, but that is nonetheless probably in this book (which, to behonest, I really only kinda skimmed).
So if you want to learn more about how to be more—or at all—likeSterling Archer, the world’s greatest secret agent, quit smearing yourgreasy fingerprints all over this book and buy it. For one thing, I reallyneed the royalties. For another thing, the last time I checked, thiswasn’t a damn library.
(Note: If your answer was “B,” this probably isn’t the book you want to start with.)
Lying is like 95% of what I do. But believe me: in this book, I’ll let you know exactly how to become a master spy just like me. Obviously, you won’t be as good at it as I am, but that’s because you’re you, and I’m Sterling Archer.
I know, I know, it sucks not being me.
But don’t beat yourself up about it, because I’m going to show you all the good stuff—what to wear; what to drink; how to seduce women (and, when necessary, men); how to beat up men (and, when necessary, women); how to tell the difference between call girls and hookers (hint: when they’re dead, they’re just hookers) and everything about weapons, secret devices, lying ex-girlfriends, and turtlenecks. In a word? How to Archer.
