You never know when you’ll find yourself in a “sticky” situation. When in danger, most people “freeze up” because they’re not accustomed to, or prepared for the eventuality of being hurt. Modern life has made us soft and lulled into a false state of security. Sadly, that way of living is becoming difficult in a world where aggression and conflicts are ever more frequent. 100 Deadly Skills is a booklet that tries to prepare you for those dangerous situations, primarily by changing your mindset and improving the way you perceive your surroundings.
Written by ex-Navy SEAL Clint Emerson, this guide consists of procedures and solutions from actual special forces operations, like eluding and evading pursuers, making improvised body armor from hardcover books and tiles, escaping from a locked car trunk, tricking facial recognition software and much more. Although it is adapted so it can be useful for civilians, the writing style is deliberately “military” which helps to get the correct mindset. The idea is to be prepared for anything, and following this guide will help you get there. You won’t magically become John J. Rambo, but you will know the difference between cover and concealment and how to best shield your vital organs from a bomb blast.
All the instructions are clear, detailed and easy to understand and are complemented with illustrations. Most of the techniques in this guide require little to no tech to execute. The 100 Deadly Skills guide teaches you how to think like a commando, and more importantly explains in detail life saving strategies for getting out of a number of dangerous situations that can emerge anytime, anywhere.
