“I deal with trauma in Veterans all the time. When I look for examples of how people turn Post Traumatic Stress into Post Traumatic Growth, Holly Dunn is at the top of the list. Trauma is trauma, whether rape, combat-related or a car accident. Holly’s message crosses all demographics. Her story is one all should read because sooner or later we all face some form of Trauma. This book should be on everyone’s must-read in 2018.” Marty Kenny, The Weekly Fight

Wednesday, July 25, 2018 -- Smithsonian Associates Presents "Secrets and Survival in the Mideast: A Former CIA Agent Shares Her Story" Evening Program with Book Signing
Michele Rigby Assad spent a decade in some of world’s most treacherous places as an undercover officer in the Central Intelligence Agency’s Directorate of Operations. Trained as a counterterrorism specialist, Assad worked in Iraq and other secret Middle Eastern locations, leading some of the most highly skilled operatives in the world.
Her job was a highly dangerous one—made even more challenging by the fact that Assad was working within a paternalistic culture that could not conceive of a woman being an intelligence agent or part of the messy world of terrorism and sectarian conflict.
Drawing on her recent memoir Breaking Cover: My Secret Life in the CIA and What It Taught Me About What’s Worth Fighting For (Tyndale Momentum), Assad reveals how she turned the factors seemingly working against her as a clandestine Mideast operative—including her small stature and her friendliness—into strategic advantages.
She discusses how she combined her knowledge of Arab culture with intuition, emotional intelligence, finely honed listening and observational skills, and the art of surprise to gain sensitive information from secret sources, thwart potential terrorist attacks, and know whom to trust when a single miscalculation could become a matter of life and death.
