Free sample

 This book is designed to prepare for the likely emergencies we all face rather than a post-apocalyptic, Zombie world.80% of US counties have been hit by a weather-related disaster since 2007. We’ve all experienced power outages. There are floods, hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, earthquakes, car breakdowns, and a host of other likely emergencies we need to be ready for. There are also special sections on urban and suburban emergency planning.

The book is a common sense, step-by-step guide on how to prepare yourself and those you love, so not only are you prepared, but you have peace of mind. A large focus is on the family and how to help those you love.

I wrote this book for my grandchildren. My son, his wife and their children moved to San Diego and I saw a report that there was an earthquake alert. I became concerned about how prepared they were. Not just for a possible earthquake, but, as importantly, for the chaotic time after an emergency. I reached into my training and experience and this is the most important book you will ever own. It is also the most useful gift you could give someone you care about.

Easy-to-follow checklists and specific directions on what to get and do help you prepare.

But the most important thing is to Prepare Now!

Introduction 

A disaster strikes. You have no home. You are lost in the wilderness. You need shelter but, what do you do? Where do you build it and how? 

This book is designed to take you the reader into those very scenario’s and to show you exactly what to do when these situations strike and how to build a shelter, tee-pee, lean-to, or even a small cabin for safety, warmth, and shelter from the elements. 

In any survival situation your means are very primitive. It is up to you to have the wit and the ability to provide for yourself and the possibility of others. With the help of this book you will learn the basics on how to construct survival shelters. 

Survival is something few know how to do or use to their benefit. In this day and age many people are used to going to the store for everything they need and have no idea how to do many of the things our not so distant relatives once knew how to do. Many of the basic survival techniques including building of shelters has all but been forgotten. It is the hope of the author that if a situation strikes and you need shelter of any kind. This book will give you a better understanding of what it takes to procure material, and build your structure. 

Not all situations are the same. Far from it and, not every location offers the same building material. Ultimately it is up to you to find a way and the materials to build any structure. With enough creativity and the know how along with the examples given in this book you should be able to construct a basic shelter in no time at all.

Introduction


If you enjoy browsing through survival and disaster management books, it is a given that you are looking for books, where you can get tips and techniques on proper water management, conservation, and how to have drinking water, ready at hand in situations of survival, camping, traveling, and even in your house.


This book is going to give you lots of commonsense ways and methods, some modern, some traditional, and technical, so that you can get to know how man has managed to survive in areas where there is a lack of water, the water has been contaminated, or the water sources are drying up, and he has to make do with the amount he has at hand.


In many parts of the world, it is very easy for you to get access to potable water, because of the administration supplying you clean, filtered, and chlorine water regularly, through your pipes and through your taps, possibly 24/7. 


But for others in remote areas, where water sources may still be underground wells, which are tapping into underground rivers, nearby freshwater streams and other natural sources of water are the only way in which they can get water to drink and to survive, having large amounts of water ready at hand, to use, and even to waste is still a pipe dream, no pun intended.


And even more so, when the streets are waterlogged in a flood, or the rains have been relentless.


I have been to many parts of the world, where my hosts told me – just do not drink straight from the taps will you, and you are going to be all right.

A hands-on, practical survival guide from retired Navy SEAL Clint Emerson—adapted for civilians from actual special forces operations—to eluding pursuers, evading capture, and surviving any dangerous situation.

In today’s increasingly dangerous world, threats to your personal safety are everywhere. From acts of terror to mass shootings, and from the unseen (and sometimes virtual) matrix of everyday crime, danger is no longer confined to dark alleys or unstable regions. Potentially life-threatening circumstances can arise anywhere, anytime, and Clint Emerson—former Navy SEAL—wants you to be prepared.

100 Deadly Skills contains proven self-defense skills, evasion tactics, and immobilizing maneuvers—modified from the world of black ops—to help you take action in numerous “worst case” scenarios from escaping a locked trunk, to making an improvised Taser, to tricking facial recognition software. With easy-to-understand instructions and illustrations, Emerson outlines in detail many life-saving strategies and teaches you how to think and act like a member of the special forces.

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.
From national bestselling author and retired Navy SEAL Clint Emerson comes the essential guide for surviving today’s emergencies—from navigating in the wild to staying alive in any disaster.

These 100 skills, adapted for civilians from actual field experiences of special forces operations, offer a complete hands-on and practical guide to help you survive in the wild no matter the climate or terrain; be prepared for any crisis; and have the critical life-saving knowledge for staying safe in any hostile environment or disaster.

Yesterday’s survival guide is no longer relevant. 100 Deadly Skills: Survival Edition is what you need for today’s world, combining survival hacks developed on the battlefield with the low-tech tools you have on hand. This book is your essential prep manual, from securing shelter, building fire, finding food, and navigating back to civilization no matter the environment to thinking like a special forces solider so that you can survive a hostage situation, an active shooter, a suicide bomber, or a terrorist threat on the subway, and even apply trauma medicine as a first responder.

Full of specific scenarios to help you get in the mindset of survival, 100 Deadly Skills: Survival Edition is better than a Swiss Army knife whether you’re lost at sea, forced to land a plane, fighting off a bear, or deciding whether to run, hide, or fight. Next to each skill are easy-to-grasp detailed illustrations, because when you need to survive the apocalypse, you don’t have time for complicated instructions.
