First let me start off saying.. I won this book from a giveaway. All books won this way will get a thorough unbiased review.

Have you ever watched a television series for so long that you felt like you were a character in the show? Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a Special Agent in a vital part of the U.S. Government?

This guide was so involved in the details associated with the Counter Terrorism Unit that I often forgot I was reading a Operations Manual for the show 24. I hone

If you are a fan of the show 24 THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU! Written in the style of a training manual you will go through not only the happenings in this action packed show, but will learn how to be an agent of the CTU yourself. The incorporation of photos from the show gives you all of the ends and outs of the Counter Terrorist Unit, which is a really neat aspect. The "manual" reads as if you are the one joining the team. Chapters in the book cover: Working at CTU, GERR, Surveillance, Undercover

When this book showed up I was pleasantly surprised, I won this book From Goodreads. I watched 24 but I wasn't an avid fan. This CTU Manual has a box that the manual comes in that has a magnetic closure, My boys thought this was the coolest thing ever then they opened it and saw that it had a spy book inside and they told me I'm not allowed to give this book to anyone else. They both want it for their very own, if you have someone in your life that was a huge 24 fan this would be a great gift ...more

Worth a casual glance by fans of 24, but that's about it. It's a well done and nicely produced gimmick. About half of the 200 pages are full page pictures from the show, with lots of additional pictures or varying sizes.

It reads like a manual, with lots of references to the 'Days' of the show and cited specific characters and situations, which take away from the handbook aspect. Most of the advice is very typical and basic from first aid to stopping a nuclear reactor using computer code....

This is a cleverly packaged fan-fiction work for lover's of the TV series '24' with Keifer Sutherland, complete with a warning that it is for "cleared personnel only". It looks like it came out after the 6th season, and may spoil some of the events prior to the seventh season if you haven't seen them. With the episodes available on Netflix and perhaps other sources, there may be continuing interest in the series.
