      It’s great fun leaving this book on prominent display in your office and seeing how people react.Some people will see it as a joke, flick through it and ask when are you going to stage your “boardroom” coup. Of course, you say nothing.Some people will take the book more seriously and ask whether it has any good advice on executing a complex project with many critical inter-dependencies, just like a coup. It has some great advice in this regard. Of course, you don’t tell them what it is.S [...]

      So, I saw the title somewhere after the failed coup in Turkey, and the premise looked interesting. Well, it's a bit crap.First off, this isn't a history book, and generally has zero scientific merit. Its factual accuracy is disputable: every single interesting factoid I cared to check out turned out to be grossly exaggarated. It's sensationalist, journalistic (following the worst traditions of British tabloid journalism, including the horrible, horrible puns ("Enough Sa'id", really? "Guinea Foul [...]

      All about coups. This book is 4/5ths history lesson and 1/5th fictional account of a coup staging in London. The authors are former SAS soldiers. It's a fast read, and it's kept rather light. More of a journalistic style than a history book. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone who likes military history or political intrigue.It's also (currently) free on for the Kindle.

      A good book on military coups and military intervention by superpowers. There is a correlation which citizens must know.I liked the book.

    6. C. Scott on said:

      It's almost funny how straight the authors play this. There is legitimate advice for how one might go about staging a coup d'etat in this book. For example planning, training, recruitment, and counter-surveillance. But the number of people actually reading this book and contemplating a military overthrow are vanishingly small. Instead, this book operates as an interesting insight into how western intelligence services do their dirty work. The most interesting sections, I thought, shed light on t [...]

      Good historical backgrounder on the concept of coups, with detailed histories of several notable coups. Authors propose a fictionalized model for a coup based in the UK, drawing on their experience as former SAS operatives. Well thought out, cogently written, entertaining in the abstract.Taken as historical review and fictional musing, a good read. Possibly not the "How To" manual that some revolutionaries hoped for, this work takes the theme matter of Rules for Radicals back to the fundamental [...]

      I was reading this one for research. A few chapters in I got what I needed, and I wasn't compelled to read the rest.Regardless of the title, "How to Stage a Military Coup" isn't really an instruction manual as much as a collection of anecdotes about real-world coups. And if that's what you're looking for, it's great. I found it entertaining, both in content and in narrative voice.For some reason, each chapter begins with a fictional segment telling the story of a theoretical coup of the UK. As s [...]

      A nice combination of how-to and historical example, unfortunately rather low in variety of examples used. Nevertheless, the fictional story of military coup in UK is quite interesting to imagine, although it is unlikely to happen. A unique kind of reading for people interested in political intrigues and military interference in politics, while not forgetting foreign sponsorship in such coups.

    10. Yazir Paredes on said:

      Not much of a "Manual", it recollects stories from different Coups around the world showing what works and what doesn't. Interesting to understand the mindset of different countries

    11. Farhan on said:

      A good read indeed. The inclusion of the 2003 Masirah Island pre-planning was nice to see, lends more credibility to the tome. Four stars.

    12. E. Kahn on said:

      Entertaining but fundamentally unserious. Luttwak is a nutbar but his "Coup d'Etat" is much better.
