From far-flung locations to our very own backyards, danger and disaster can strike at any moment, and survival comes down to preparation and knowing your enemy. Adapted by a retired Navy SEAL from the world of special operations, this manual draws on the unique skill set of a clandestine operative to radically improve your chances of coming out on top - whether you're faced with an active shooter or the zombie apocalypse. These one hundred deadly skills, which all rely on low-tech or "no-tech" tools (because complicated instructions are the last thing you need when facing imminent peril), include creating an every day carry kit; evading an ambush; escaping an automobile trunk; defeating handcuffs; making an improvised gas mask; disabling digital tracking devices; tricking facial recognition software; winning a knife fight; and surviving a grenade attack.--COVER.

I enjoyed this book. It is not really going to teach you how to jump from a plane or most of the other skills discussed. But it does give some hints about staying safe and is a fascinating look at the kinds of skills you need to be a covert operative.

A comic book take on the subjects covered. Not recommended if your goal is to gain skills.

This book left me feeling paranoid for about a week. Perfect for those of you always looking over your shoulder - or would like to start.
