Clint Emerson, retired Navy SEAL and author of the bestselling 100 Deadly Skills, presents an explosive, darkly funny, and often twisted account of being part of an elite team of operatives whose mission was to keep America safe by whatever means necessary. Clint Emerson is the only SEAL ever inducted into the International Spy Museum. Operating from the shadows, with an instinct for running towards trouble, his unique skill set made him the perfect hybrid operator. Emerson spent his career on the bleeding edge of intelligence and operations, often specializing in missions that took advantage of subterfuge, improvisation, the best in recon and surveillance tech to combat the changing global battlefield. MacGyvering everyday objects into working spyware was routine, and fellow SEALs referred to his activities simply as "special shit." His parameters were: find, fix, and finish—and of course, leave no trace. The Right Kind of Crazy is unlike any military memoir you've ever read because Emerson is upfront about the fact that what makes you a great soldier and sometimes hero doesn't always make you the best guy—but it does make for damn good stories.Show more
From national bestselling author and retired Navy SEAL Clint Emerson comes the essential guide for surviving today’s emergencies—from navigating in the wild to staying alive in any disaster. These 100 skills, adapted for civilians from actual field experiences of special forces operations, offer a complete hands-on and practical guide to help you survive in the wild no matter the climate or terrain; be prepared for any crisis; and have the critical life-saving knowledge for staying safe in any hostile environment or disaster. Yesterday’s survival guide is no longer relevant. 100 Deadly Skills: Survival Edition is what you need for today’s world, combining survival hacks developed on the battlefield with the low-tech tools you have on hand. This book is your essential prep manual, from securing shelter, building fire, finding food, and navigating back to civilization no matter the environment to thinking like a special forces solider so that you can survive a hostage situation, an active shooter, a suicide bomber, or a terrorist threat on the subway, and even apply trauma medicine as a first responder. Full of specific scenarios to help you get in the mindset of survival, 100 Deadly Skills: Survival Edition is better than a Swiss Army knife whether you’re lost at sea, forced to land a plane, fighting off a bear, or deciding whether to run, hide, or fight. Next to each skill are easy-to-grasp detailed illustrations, because when you need to survive the apocalypse, you don’t have time for complicated instructions.Show more
100 Deadly Skills is the essential guide for surviving any crisis, from defending yourself using everyday objects like coins and lighters, to using secure cyber communications, to creating a “bolt” bag that will allow you to survive off-the-grid for several days, and much more. In an ever more dangerous world, threats to civilians’ personal safety are legion. Spanning acts of terror, mass shootings, and an unseen (and sometimes virtual) matrix of everyday crime, danger is no longer confined to dark alleys or unstable regions. Potentially life-threatening circumstances may surface anywhere, at any time—from the local mall to the neighborhood playground to a four-star hotel room to the WIFI connection in your home. Yesterday’s survival guide no longer makes the cut. 100 Deadly Skills is the book you need for today’s world. Modified for civilian survival from real world clandestine operations, the step-by-step graphics will teach you how to think and act like members of the special forces. This complete course in how to be a “Violent Nomad” begins with understanding the psychology of survival and moves on to preventing tracking, eluding active shooters, repelling down the side of a building, immobilizing bad guys, protecting against cyber-criminals, and avoiding—or at least surviving—a wide array of threats, all using low-tech to “no-tech” resources. The 100 Deadly Skills include: • Mission Preparation (From what you need in your Go Bag to making improvised body armor) • Infiltration (Accessing enemy territory from sea, air, or land) • Infrastructure Development (From evading a pursuer and defeating a kidnaping to making and concealing weapons) • Surveillance (From tracking to detecting tampering to hiding secret information) • Access and Collection (From picking locks to sending secure electronic correspondence and data) • Operational Actions (From disarming and restraining a bad guy to basicdefense strategies) • Sanitization (From creating a disguise to leaving no trace) • Exfiltration and Escape (From defeating any kind of restraint to surviving an ambush) 100 Deadly Skills is the final word for civilians on self-defense.Show more
