4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Tease Lacking Much Useful Substance Because The Author Speaks From Experience
By andsobo on August 17, 2018
The writing style is easy to follow and absorb. It is abundantly clear that between the lines, real compelling, brutal, heroic stories live. But they remain between the lines so tight that the publisher and writing assistants are unaware.

Of the one hundred skills discussed in the book, about half are immediately useful. Things like securing your hotel room, checking to see if your room or luggage has been disturbed, how to blend into your environment, simple things to do and not do to increase your personal security, listing of items you should carry with you at all times, making improvised body armor that works, and how to determine if you are being followed, are all useful skills that give you heightened situational awareness when traveling overseas or when other circumstances call for heightened alert.

Most of the information, however, is not necessarily new information, or likely to ever be needed, they are all good bits of information that keep you in a good mindset, to be aware of your surroundings but it would be a full time labor to maintain.

About thirty skills I would consider highly unlikely to ever use. I mean sure, if push comes to shove I can steal a small plane and probably take off fine, its the landing, and other complications that make it so unlikely. Many of these skills are useful if you are part of a trained team, not me, and can stay in place for extended periods of time. Some are simply fun to read about but will never be employed, like body disposal, the tried and true Molotov cocktail, using the rectum for short term storage, and waging your own small scale psychological war. About fifteen skills would require considerable practice and/or planning to become proficient at executing and planning for.

And just to be clear, to me, much of the book reads like the bibliography of spy novel. There is no classified information in this book except for some very vague references to basic activities that may have or be part of a procedure or drill to help keep things in order and sequence to someone trained but outside of the complete drill or sequence they hold no significance. The copyright date on my copy is 2015, the technology discussed was available on the web with a little searching more than ten years prior to the publication and one of the methods of communication via the internet without plain text was being used by a friend fifteen years ago. I would like to see an updated version but I am afraid that is the limitation of the author and all similarly trained and skilled men. Once they learn a skill, even if it is a non-classified skill, they cannot talk about it, and they don't.
