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.<br /><br />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.<br /> <br /><i>100 Deadly Skills </i>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.<br /> <br />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, <i>100 Deadly Skills</i> is an invaluable resource. Because let’s face it, when danger is imminent, you don’t have time for complicated instructions.

<b>What makes a narcissist go from self-involved to terrifying? In this national bestseller, Joe Navarro, a leading FBI profiler, unlocks the secrets to the personality disorders that put us all at risk. </b><br /><br /><i>“I should have known.”</i><br /><i>“How could we have missed the warning signs?”</i><br /><i>”I always thought there was something off about him.”</i><br /><br />When we wake up to new tragedies in the news every day—shootings, rampages, acts of domestic terrorism—we often blame ourselves for missing the mania lurking inside unsuspecting individuals. But how could we have known that the charismatic leader had the characteristics of a tyrant? And how can ordinary people identify threats from those who are poised to devastate their lives on a daily basis—the crazy coworkers, out-of-control family members, or relentless neighbors?<br /><br />In <i>Dangerous Personalities</i>, former FBI profiler Joe Navarro has the answers. He shows us how to identify the four most common "dangerous personalities"—the Narcissist, the Predator, the Paranoid, and the Unstable Personality— and how to analyze the potential threat level. Along the way, he provides essential tips and tricks to protect ourselves both immediately and in the long-term, as well as how to heal the trauma of being exposed to the destructive egos in our world.

<b><i>In a civilized society, violence is rarely the answer. But when it is-it's the <u>only</u> answer. </i></b><br /><br />The sound of breaking glass downstairs in the middle of the night. <br /><br />The words, "Move and you die." <br /><br />The hands on your child, or the knife to your throat. <br /><br />In this essential book, self-protection expert and former military intelligence officer Tim Larkin changes the way we think about violence in order to save our lives. By deconstructing our assumptions about violence-its morality, its function in modern society, how it <i>actually </i>works-Larkin unlocks the shackles of our own taboos and arms us with what we need to know to prevent, prepare for, and survive the unthinkable event of life-or-death violence. Through a series of harrowing true-life stories, Larkin demonstrates that violence is a tool equally effective in the hands of the "bad guy" or the "good guy"; that the person who acts first, fastest and with the full force of their body is the one who survives; and that each and every one of us is capable of being that person when our lives are at stake. <br /><br />An indispensable resource, <i>When Violence is the Answer</i> will remain with you long after you've finished reading, as the bedrock of your self-protection skills and knowledge. <br /><br />

Poisons permeate our world. They are in the environment, the workplace, the home. They are in food, our favorite whiskey, medicine, and well water. They have been used to cure diseases as well as incapacitate and kill. They smooth wrinkles, block pain, stimulate and enhance athletic ability. In this entertaining and fact-filled book, science writer Peter Macinnis considers poisons in all their aspects. He recounts stories of the celebrated poisoners in history and literature, from Nero to Thomas Wainewright, and from the death of Socrates to Hamlet and Peter Pan. <br /><br /> From cyanide to strychnine, from Botox to ricin and Sarin gas—have you ever wondered about their sources? Where do they come from? How do you detect something that can kill you in a matter of seconds? Macinnis methodically analyzes the science of these killing agents and their uses in medicine, cosmetics, war, and terrorism. With wit and precision, he weighs these questions and many more: Was Lincoln’s volatility caused by mercury poisoning? Was Jack the Ripper an arsenic eater? Can wallpaper kill? For anyone who has ever wondered and been afraid to ask, here is a rich miscellany for your secret questions about toxins.

<b>On 20 June 1994, a "dangerous" airman shot his mental-health doctors before going on a shooting spree at an Air Force hospital. Days later, a B-52 bomber plunged into the ground killing the crew and a pilot who was known for his reckless flying. The mass murder and military aviation disaster occurred suddenly... but not without warning.</b><br /><br />This true story is told by former Air Force criminal investigator Andy Brown. As a young military policeman, Brown responded to the base hospital, ran to the sound of the guns and ended the gunman's murderous rampage. After extensive research, Brown tells the true stories of the active shooter and the fatal plane crash. Giving a voice to the doctors, aviators, and airmen who warned of the impending tragedies and revealing the leadership culture that allowed two men to travel on a path toward destruction. In a parallel storyline, Brown shares how he prepared for the deadly gunfight, describes his encounter with the gunman, and offers a candid insight into the hidden cost of becoming a "hero."<br /><br /><i>Warnings Unheeded</i> is an extraordinary story of ordinary men and women who became life-saving first responders, victims who fought for survival, and survivors who fought for accountability and change.<br /><br /><b>If you appreciate military nonfiction, biography, true crime stories, or learning from history, read <i>Warnings Unheeded</i> now in paperback, hardcover, ebook and audiobook.</b><br /><br />*** Contains more than 70 images and photographs ***<br /><br />What people are saying about <i>Warnings Unheeded:</i><br /><br /><li><i>"A highly readable book ... from a unique source. Recommended for a wide audience."</i><b> —Best-selling true-crime author, Ron Franscell</b></li><br /><li><i>"In vivid and thoroughly researched detail, Andy Brown masterfully weaves two tragic stories ... this is an important and well-written read."</i><b> —Gregory K. Moffatt, Ph.D., Author of <i>Blind-Sided: Homicide Where it is Least Expected</i> and <i>A Violent Heart</i></b></li><br /><li><i>"An absolute tour de force of non-fiction storytelling. This is easily one of the best non-fiction books I've ever read."</i><b> —Amazon Review</b></li><br /><li><i>"Best book I've read in some time. Without lurid details or overwrought prose, Andy Brown helps us understand what Fairchild AFB had to endure in those tragic days of June in 1994. With a clear and concise voice, he illustrates the events leading up to the twin tragedies with a thoroughness and professionalism I suspect he brings to every task he takes on. But this is no dry recounting of facts, and Brown's compassion for the victims is as clear as his prose. This book kept me up far later than I intended every night while reading it, and it will stay with me for the rest of my life. We are very fortunate that the man who stopped the shooter has written this book for us - doubly so that he has proven to be a talented writer. I highly recommend this book."</i><b> —Amazon Review</b></li> <br />
