Learn to write like a secret agent!

Thanks to the folks at Bridging the Unbridgeable, I learned that the CIA style manual is now publicly available. As the Director of Intelligence wrote in the foreward to the 8th edition,

The information the CIA gathers and the analysis it produces mean little if we cannot convey them effectively.

I’ve included the manual here so you can investigate for yourself.

The Guardian published a tongue-in-cheek piece about the release of the CIA’s style manual a couple of days ago. It’s worth a minute.
