What you will learn from Clint Emerson's new book is 100 Deadly Skills: The SEAL Operative's Guide to Eluding Pursuers, Evading Capture, and Surviving Any Dangerous Situation. What you will not learn from Clint Emerson's new book is how to write a concise book title. Then again, maybe that's deliberate. In some situations droning on and on could be considered a deadly skill. Like when my girlfriend launches into whatever work drama somebody said something about her something in a meeting while I'm watching football or a Lord of the Rings marathon. She can pretty much get me to do anything she wants in exchange for the words to stop. Like how I was going to be Deadpool for Halloween this year, but am now going as Katy Perry to her Left Shark. Because, she says, "it's funnier that way."

Anyway, despite how impractically long its name is, 100 Deadly Skills is a practical guide for survival that Emerson, a retired Navy SEAL, has created for civilians. And it's for real. No tips on escaping zombies or fending off alien attacks. Emerson wants you to learn to deal with fit hitting the shan circumstances that, wretched as they are, you might really encounter. Acts of terror. Mass shootings. Daily crime, both online and IRL. 100 Deadly Skills includes modified black ops methods for self-defense, evasion tactics, and immobilization maneuvers. Situational outlines and response how-tos are divided into illustrated sections covering topics including the best way to: escape a locked trunk; make a taser; trick facial recognition software; prevent tracking; avoid being kidnapped; and rappel down the side of a building. All instructions require either low-tech or "no-tech" accompaniments.
