100 Deadly Skills: The SEAL Operative’s Guide to Eluding Pursuers, Evading Capture, and Surviving Any Dangerous Situation
In the novel Snow Crash, a character mentions how until the age of about twenty-five, everyone thinks they could transform themselves into the biggest badass on the planet. Well, if you ever needed a handbook on how to make that transformation, 100 Deadly Skills is a solid place to start.
This isn’t your average worst-case scenario book or urban survival guide, not by a long shot. This is hardcore be-ready-to-go-to-war training for aspiring apocalypse survivors, and, as retired Navy SEAL Clint Emerson calls them, violent nomads.
Now, granted, that description probably makes this book sound frivolous or ridiculous, but I assure you, it is anything but. This is hard-won advice given by a man who has clearly been to the brink and back, not only living to tell the tale, but generously sharing the lessons he learned with readers.
There are simple ideas, like defensive maneuvers or hiding keys and blades on your person, and much more complex techniques, like making a taser from a disposable camera or modifying your car for dangerous fieldwork. If your goal is escape, evade or survive, you’ll find a plethora of valuable advice in 100 Deadly Skills.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
