25663814Title: I, Spy: How to Be Your Own Private Investigator
Author: Daniel Ribacoff
Series: N/A
Genre: Nonfiction – how-to
Number of Pages: 240

My Rating: ★★☆☆


Daniel Ribacoff, a successful private investigator, teaches readers how to tell if someone is lying, conduct surveillance, keep themselves and their homes safe, tell if they’re being followed, and much more.


I, Spy is a decent book with a lot of useful information. I always want to learn how to better keep myself safe, and this book has some good tips for that.

The book covers a wide range of topics and offers a lot of information, but only gets into the basics on each subject. I didn’t become an expert reading it, but I learned some practical tips that I can, and do, put to use.

Some of the situations weren’t relevant to me, but still interesting. I can apply the information to other situations and keep it in mind for future reference.

My biggest complaint concerns the occasional crass story or foul words. I don’t appreciate that and think it unnecessary especially in an informative book.

Overall I, Spy is a worthwhile book to read. It contains good resources such as recommended books and links to websites. I learned a lot, and the behind-the-scenes information on investigators and police was interesting.

I recommend this to:

  • Anyone interested in self-defense.
