Description

A hands-on, practical survival guide from retired Navy SEAL Clint Emerson - adapted for civilians from actual special forces operations - to eluding pursuers, evading capture, and surviving any dangerous situation.

In today's increasingly dangerous world, threats to your personal safety are everywhere. From acts of terror to mass shootings, and from the unseen (and sometimes virtual) matrix of everyday crime, danger is no longer confined to dark alleys or unstable regions. Potentially life-threatening circumstances can arise anywhere, anytime, and Clint Emerson - former Navy SEAL - wants you to be prepared.

100 Deadly Skills contains proven self-defense skills, evasion tactics, and immobilizing maneuvers - modified from the world of black ops - to help you take action in numerous "worst case" scenarios from escaping a locked trunk to making an improvised Taser to tricking facial recognition software. With easy-to-understand instructions, Emerson outlines in detail many life-saving strategies and teaches you how to think and act like a member of the special forces.

This complete course in survival teaches you how to prevent tracking, evade a kidnapping, elude an active shooter, rappel down the side of a building, immobilize a bad guy, protect yourself against cybercriminals, and much more - all using low-tech to no-tech methods. Clear, detailed, and presented in an easy-to-understand and execute format, 100 Deadly Skills is an invaluable resource. Because let's face it, when danger is imminent, you don't have time for complicated instructions.

Only a small fraction of the information is useful

The synopsis of the book claims it is geared towards helping regular civilians be able to survive any dangerous situation. However, about 80% of the book is about skills that are valuable only if you are actually a clandestine operative of some kind. While I like to imagine I am James Bond sometimes, I'm really just an average guy. Skill: learn how to jump out of a moving helicopter into water in order to gain access to a foreign county.... yeah, probably not going to do that next time I go on vacation. Skill: burn a body in a barrel of jet fuel.... ummmm. The book is a fun listen if you like learning about spy stuff, but there is not to much to be gained in terms of actual real world information for civilians looking to be prepared to survive an emergency situation.

Better with pictures

This is a book that doesn't lend itself to audiobook
The print version has many diagrams and drawings! How can you teach how to tie a knot with words and no pictures?

A Mere Laundry List of To-do's

I didn't expect a whole lot for a $10 Audible book, but even so I feel somewhat disappointed. Think of it as a list of items for you to research completely on your own. If you're OK with that, then this will serve as a good guide for much more study.

For example, it simply tells you to "buy two rare earth magnets to use as an improvised compass". It's up to you to figure out where to buy said magnets and how to make and use the compass.

For my part, I'd rather this book be divided into ten volumes of 10 skills each, with much more how-to detail (audio, plus downloadable PDF's with illustrations). A multi-volume series could have been a great cottage industry for the author who, I'm sure, is very qualified. Instead, it comes across as a slapdash, make-a-quick-buck affair.

I feel like this book will get me arrested, but...

And simultaneously unarrested. I learned so many new useful things about staying safe in this book...and some things--I didn't want to know. Great work. Enjoyed it. Will be reading more from Clint. I enjoyed how straight forward and direct the book is. No BS is the only way to go. Not a fan of teaching people how to make bombs, but next book, please teach people how to catch people who make them...or scan an environment or read people for potential threats, and such. Also, I would like to hear more about the Danish Veterinarian thing.

Great information, but get the paperback.

Great information for anyone looking to better prepare themselves for the dangers that the world has to offer. However I'd strongly recommend the paperback or kindle edition of this book. The audio book is we'll narrated and still very informative, however it doesn't have the well done, detailed, and at times necessary illustrations for mastering these skills. Be vigilant, be prepared and good luck out there.

Could save your life

Few books so honestly give a glimpses of the hidden aspects of society. Know yourself and your enemy.

Very few actual skills are taught

Many skills are described way too short, worst of all was the article about flashbangs

absolut oberflächlich

Würden Sie sich wieder etwas von Clint Emerson anhören?

Das Buch ist sehr oberflächlich. Ich habe nicht das Gefühl, dass man daraus irgend etwas lernen kann. Es wirkt auf mich als ob der Autor das Buch schnell zusammen gebastelt hat. Nichts wird im Detail erklärt und nichts ist besonders überraschend. Es wirkt genauso schwach wie die zahllosen Youtube-Videos die erklären sollen wie man jeden noch so starken Angreifer mit "simplen Tricks" besiegen kann. Dabei bestehen die Tipps im Buch aus simplen Klishees die so gewählt wurden, dass sie für Hollywoodfilme zu langweilig sind und damit ein kleines Bisschen realistischer erscheinen. Ein Beispiel: Es wird erklärt, dass mit einer Taschenlampe und Fotofilm eine Infrarotlampe gebaut werden kann. Mit einem Handy soll es dann möglich sein das zu sehen. Zweck des ganzen ist im Dunkeln nicht sichtbar zu sein. Daran, dass der helle Handybildschirm über Kilometer sichtbar ist, hat der Autor offensichtlich nicht gedacht. Und daran, dass sich die Augen nicht an die Dunkelheit gewöhnen, wenn man auf das Handy guckt auch nicht.Fazit: Hätte jeder Armeefreak der nie wirklich gedient hat sich genauso ausdenken können. Schade, dass ich dafür ein Guthaben ausgegeben habe.
