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.

  • Review: The Hidden History Of The Human Race
    As the plague season rolls on, my reading has (as a matter of sanity) drifted from hard-core political filth to more esoteric subjects. They have been quite a welcome distraction. For instance, I recently reviewed “Daydream Sunset” by Ron Jacobs, about counterculture in the 1970’s. (All reviews can be found at https://www.covertbookreport.com/ ) Then we […]

    Flock of turkeys currently stalking our road *** Many years ago I was the caretaker of a 300-acre farm on the Columbia River in Oregon. The farms in the area were very isolated, with tons of wildlife. I planted corn and millet for game feed and the owners occasionally hunted there. Meanwhile, I grew huge […]

  • Review: The Hunt For Zero Point – By Nick Cook
    In an effort to get a little distance from hardcore politics and history, I recently reviewed a book on the counterculture in the ’70’s and a great book on Bigfoot. Now comes a book on government research into antigravity and the “flying saucer” phenomenon. “The Hunt For Zero Point – Inside The Classified World Of […]
