A native of Argentina who came of age during the country's tumultuous Peron years and trained to be a surgeon at the Juan A. Fernandez Hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina, author Jorge H. DeNapoli came to the United States in 1956 for a medical internship, to pursue a career as a surgeon.Diverted from that path by different educational requirements between the two countries, DeNapoli switched gears and became a board-Certified psychiatrist unaware that destiny, and unexpected circumstances in the future would lead him to the path of a secret double life as an undercover government operative. He trained at the Psychiatric Center in Middletown, NY, the Columbia University Psychiatric Institute, and the Vanderbilt Clinic at the Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. He opened a private practice in Massachusetts in 1968 for the treatment of anxiety and stress related disorders. A life member of the American Psychiatric Association, DeNapoli specialized in the interpretation of behavioral patterns, and behavior modification techniques. He put his extensive knowledge of human behavior to good use while performing undercover intelligence gathering for the United States Office of Strategic Information, often utilizing elicitation and profiling methods.His book is a recollection of his journey, from early encounters with Che Guevara and the political turmoil of post-Peron Argentina in the 1950s, to his role in the covert intelligence arena during the pivotal decades of the 1980s and 1990s.Now retired, the author resides in the Merrimack Valley in Massachusetts.
