This complete course in survival teaches you how to prevent tracking, evade a kidnapping, elude an active shooter, rappel down the side of a building, immobilize a bad guy, protect yourself against cyber-criminals, and much more—all using low-tech to “no-tech” methods.

The Right Kind of Crazy

Author: Clint Emerson
Publisher: Touchstone
ISBN: 1501184164
Release Date: 2019-03-05
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Clint Emerson, retired Navy SEAL and author of the bestselling 100 Deadly Skills presents an explosive, darkly funny, and often twisted account of being part of an elite clandestine team of covert operatives whose mission was to keep America safe by whatever means necessary. Just be happy he’s on our side. Clint Emerson is the only SEAL ever inducted into the International Spy Museum. Operating from the shadows, with an instinct for running towards trouble, his unique skill set made him the perfect hybrid of elite and modern day counterintelligence agent. Emerson spent his career on the bleeding edge of intelligence and operations, often specializing in solo missions that took advantage of subterfuge, improvisation, the best in recon and surveillance tech, and even elements of Hollywood disguise to combat the changing global battlefield. MacGyvering everyday objects into working spyware was routine, and fellow SEALs referred to his top-secret activities simply as “special shit.” His parameters were: find, fix, and finish—and of course, leave no trace. While Emerson was a real life Jason Bourne as well as a decorated soldier, he operated by only two codes: “if you aren’t cheating, you aren’t trying” and “it’s only illegal if you get caught.” The Right Kind of Crazy is unlike any military memoir you’ve ever read because Emerson is upfront about the fact that what makes you a great soldier and sometimes hero doesn’t always make you the best guy—but it does make for damn good stories.

Genre:

This book is a summary of the original book by Clint Emerson. It has been simplified for you with adequate analysis to absorb substantial information within thirty minutes of reading time. We live in dangerous times; the crime rate all over the world is at an unprecedented high. All countries have issues with security and criminal acts, from the most developed nations to the underdeveloped. When people picture disaster; they think of extremes like epidemics, or earthquakes and tsunamis but what is killing, even more, people are the criminal acts that seem like an everyday occurrence in our cities. Robbery, vandalism, battery and outright murder are the real terrors. How does one defend himself from these seemingly unpredictable attacks? We take a leaf from the most dangerous people amongst us; not the criminals, the men saddled with the responsibility of bringing the criminals to justice. The more terrifying the criminal, the better trained his hunters will be. Following this line of thought, terrorists; both domestic and foreign are hunted all over the world by the most elite of military operatives; the Special Forces. These men are trained as part criminal, part police, and part spy. They can slug it out with the worst criminals and come out the top while still retaining their sense of law and order. The complete skillset of these men can't be publicised; it is too dangerous in the hands of people without the requisite training. Nonetheless, nuggets of wisdom can be shared for survival and self-defense purposes. This book was written using the insight of an ex-Navy SEAL with years of field experience. We draw from his vast knowledge on how to be safeguarded against attackers and how to avoid and escape from difficult scenarios. The world may be getting more and more dangerous but the time has come for you too to shore yourself up and avoid being a victim. The knowledge gained from this book will transform you from a helpless victim to someone capable of defending himself in hairy situations.
