Imagine you are locked in the trunk of a car, or thrown into water with your hands tied behind your back, or need to install an audio bug in a room… how do you handle these survival and surveillance issues?

Well, Clint Emerson has put together just such a guidebook. In “100 Deadly Skills; The SEAL Operative’s Guide To Eluding Pursuers, Evading Capture, And Surviving Any Dangerous Situation”, Emerson presents an entertaining yet practical book of secret techniques that the gadget guys will love. I mean, this is MacGyver shit. Emerson spent 20 years in Special Ops, did a stint with the National Security Agency (NSA), and teaches the tricks of the trade.

These techniques are not soldier/battlefield techniques, but more for covert operatives, private eyes, undercover cops and similar dangerous occupations. No doubt, as with any book like this, a potential dark side exists in the inherent benefit to mafia-types, drug cartel members or other nefarious operatives. I mean, I will probably not really need to know the three best ways to dispose of a body or make an improvised taser, but hey, ya never know.

Emerson flips many of the techniques to the civilian side with ideas on escaping kidnappings and very practical ways to ensure survival in dangerous situations. All techniques are presented in a graphic drawing format that is easy to understand. Here’s an example:

This is the perfect “gadget guy book”, suitable for the bug-out pack as well as the back of the toilet for quality reading time. You can pick it up on any page, read it out of sequence, and just browse through it. I guarantee you will see some stuff you never thought of, and this book would make a great gift for the right person.

Even if they don’t need to know how to dispose of a body…

    This is great! I just listened to Clint Emerson and Jordan Harbinger’s interview on the The Art of Charm podcast. Really inspired me personally.

  • Carter Page And The Real “Spygate”
    During the Presidential campaign, “Mafia Don” was able to turn criticism of his staff’s use of “Alternative Facts” into the catchphrase “Fake News”. That label has stuck in an “I’m rubber, you’re glue” fashion and worked in Trump’s favor. Now, with increased pressure on Trump’s crime family, carnival barker-in-chief Trump has turned scrutiny of Russian […]
  • Jeffery Kaye Interview: U.S. Used Biological Warfare On North Korea
    In April we looked at a report by Dr. Jeffrey Kaye that detailed how the U.S. military and CIA dropped Plague-infested fleas onto North Korean villages. This new information Kaye dug up answers a lot of questions from that era – and introduces us to a long line of biological war projects that coincidentally dovetails […]
  • “It Can’t Happen Here” Predicted Trump In 1935
    It’s not often that I read and review fiction, but with the Trump presidency devolving into a desperate, rabid beast it was time to read “It Can’t Happen Here” by Sinclair Lewis. The book, which was written in 1935 as Fascism was rising in Europe, accurately predicted the rise of an authoritarian like Mein Trumpf. […]
  • Why The U.S. Has Hammered Nicaragua For Decades
    There’s lots of trouble going on in Nicaragua right now, after a seemingly quiet period post-Reagan administration. Like Venezuela, Nicaragua has been squeezed for years and years. No matter how much the U.S. objects, these countries exhibit elements of socialism which have pulled millions of poor people into a better existence. Now, there are riots […]
  • My Wrestling Team
    I was prompted to revisit this post from 2011; “My Wrestling Team”: Wrestling. It’s the toughest sport I’ve ever competed in, and I guess you could say it was my first martial art. This was back in the day when students died fasting and sweating trying to make weight. I remember going entire school days […]
