Another demonstration was how to clear a room or bar in 30 seconds with common household materials and so forth. His missing fingers only added to his credibility. The result was as if we had been allowed to peer into Pandora's box for a few minutes and then allowed to close the lid without long-term consequences.
For those with maturity, responsibility and long-term ethics, this is a guide on how to be aware of those around you. Just as Mentos and soft drinks are a current curiosity, Saxon tells you what to do and what to be aware of. Saxon speaks from first-hand experience in civil rights demonstrations. Read and enjoy, but be aware, not everyone is well intentioned . . .
Now the bad news: After reading this book, TV and movies will never be the same! All the BS they use becomes easy to spot and it ruins the movie! It becomes obvious that the script writer is woefully ignorant and you are not! Their movie will quickly become childish or seem stupid to you. Want to realy know something of value? Then study this book!
It's a good one. It gets really technical in spots, and the author really wants to share his political and social viewpoints which I'm not crazy about, but the information seems very solid for what we are doing with it. I do agree with my husband though, I wish very much that the political/social commentary was in a different font or color so you could skip those parts.
That said, it is a lot better than "Anarchist's Cookbook" this one makes more sense. But to get a full picture, go to [...] and read some of his articles on Fantasy and Weaponary, it puts a lot in perspective. Saxon is a interesting contradiction. He scoffs at full auto weapons yet provides a few plans for them in his second volume. Ironic? Or maybe he just feels he should caution you first. Not sure.
It wouldn't surprise me if Tim Mcviegh and Ted Kaczynski had copies (although I think Teddy's exploits started before the publication date) and Tyler Durden's (Fight Club) statement that gasoline and Orange Juice make napalm is an urban legend this book quickly lays to rest.
A good deal of the material is public domain, like the Marine Corp combat guide, and many of the chapters appear to be multi-generational photo-copies so I find the book a bit pricey. Still, if the subject matter is to your liking it will hold your interest for hours on end. It's big as a phone book. Weighs about 4 pounds. I'm surprised Saxon didn't suggest using the book itself as an improvised bludgen.

Neat to read, but you'll never do any of this. Newsflash, you are not James Bond. Even so, most guys like to browse this kind of thing.Published 4 months ago by Mr.E
I bought it because I was afraid they'd ban it and you wouldn't be able to get it. It's cool to have I guess. It's like having a cool thing that you never use. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Nothin to it

Lousy book. Poorly written, don't waste your money on this garbage. Would have given it a lower number but can't go lower than 1 starPublished 5 months ago by Amanda Felix
Makes for good reading. A little vage in details. An experienced chemist or pyro would have no problem but a novice should avoid trying some of these recipes.Published 6 months ago by Anthony H.
