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. Clear, detailed, and presented in an easy-to-understand and execute format, "100 Deadly Skills" is an invaluable resource. Because let s face it, when danger is imminent, you don t have time for complicated instructions."

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.
