Blind Man's Bluff: The Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage ペーパーバック – イラスト付き, 2016/4/5
"Vividly told, impressively documented, and persuasively argued."―New York Times
"The veterans of the 'Silent Service' are silent no more."―John Lehman,former secretary of the Navy, WallStreet Journal
"The book is filled with specifics . . . but thankfully not presented in the dry techno-speak of many military histories. This one is very human and easy to read."―Washington Post
"A tale that has the Navy refusing to comment and retired submariners rejoicing that their story is finally being told. . . . Espionage missions described in this book are among the most sensitive and secret intelligence operations of the cold war. Most have never been described in detail, if at all, and the Navy to this day refuses to acknowledge them publicly."―Associated Press
"It's almost impossible to make up stuff this good."―John Weisman,author of the Rogue Warrior Series
"Excellent history . . . that reads like a Tom Clancy novel."―Booklist
"Hard-core investigative reporting at its crispest. . . . The stories are exciting, the personalities border on the eccentric, and the constant turf battles among various U.S. government agencies in those often top-secret submarine activities make for intriguing reading."―Library Journal
"Strong stuff! . . . Highly recommended. . . . A compelling testimony to the courage and ingenuity of the submariners and the intelligence wizards and operators who made use of this weapon during the cold war and up to this day."―Roy Jonkers, AFIO ExecutiveDirector, Weekly Intelligence Notes
"As exciting as early Tom Clancy novels . . . engrossing. . . . Highly recommended for everyone with an interest in submarines or intelligence."―Sea Power
"An immensely readable look at some of the blackest secrets of the cold war, as U.S. and Soviet subs engage in subterfuge as intriguing as a thriller novel."―Providence Journal-Bulletin
"Impressive . . . The authors managed to capture the flavor of submarine life, the innovation and ingenuity of men who have to fix complex equipment when there is no supply line, the command structure that seems casual to an outsider but which works better in an undersea environment than the more rigid arrangements on surface or shore commands."―NewLondon Day (CT)
"The most comprehensive look at the work of these intrepid sailors . . . A celebration of their ingenuity and valor."―Baltimore Sun
"The authors write of top-secret operations to tap underwater Soviet cables, recover a live H-bomb mistakenly lost on the ocean floor, and steal a Russian sub. Better yet, all of it is true- and revealed on these pages for the first time."―Investor's Business Daily
Christopher Drew is a special projects editor at the New York Times and has won numerous awards for his investigative reporting.
Annette Lawrence Drew, the book's researcher, has a PhD from Princeton.

The fact that the code "Jennifer" is used is an indication that this book is (a) somewhat out of date, and (b) probably doesn't tell the whole story. But then many of the details of Azorian are still top-secret, so we probably never will. However, what we get here is sufficient. We can only hope that, as US/Russian relations get cold again, the same errors aren't repeated, leading to more young men dying needlessly.
The book has lots of stories put together from interviews with participants but, judging from some of the other reviews, these have many errors.
The book has a very US centric view, no doubt because of the easier access to US personnel compared to participants from other nations. Unfortunately this US centric view reduces the objectivity of the authors.
While this book does add to the general knowledge about what went on in the Cold War and is therefore worth reading, it fails to give the objective, comprehensive view of Cold War Submarine Espionage that it promises.
