A quote from the author:
"After making it through Seal training and the stuff I did as a Seal, I guess you start to feel like you can make it through anything. When you have that kind of a mindset, there's a certain confidence that goes along with that. The confidence is really helpful when all hell breaks loose," he notes. "We try to teach people, `Yeah, that just happened. Take a breath. Let's get that brain working and we can problem solve our way through this.' It's nothing too advanced where you'd need 20 years experience of hand-to-hand combat."
Entertaining, and perhaps life-saving.
I liked the book for several reasons: 1). The 34 survival scenarios covered the gamet of potential dangers for virtually any contingency one might imagine.
2). Courtley's advice is practical and resonates with good common sense.
3). His insights derive from a decade of his work in the SEAL Teams and include interesting first-hand anecdotes.
4). The book reminded me of many good lessons I learned during my ten years in the military and had almost forgotten.
The book contains the following four sections on the topic of Survival:
1). Mental and Physical
2). 34 Specific Survival Scenarios
3). Gear and Weapons
4). Medical Treatment
I have already recommended this book to many of my friends and purchased the book for my sons-in-law (neither of whom has a military background). I feel Courtley's primary contribution in this writing is in the following three areas: 1). It helps people develop situational awareness. 2). It explains the importance of acquiring a survival mentality. 3). It introduces a method for making good survival decisions quickly under stress.
If you are breathing, you need this book. Get it now!
And this is coming from a 20+yr survival instructor. That gets paid to teach survival and firearms classes.
Also, former military. Army Recon team. Naval Special Boat Unit. And a 8yr veteran of Private Security.
Bottom Line: GET THIS BOOK NOW!!!
However, this goes even deeper in allowing us to overcome that which is holding us back in many areas of our life....Survive Fear to become a true human that survives...thrives wherever they may find themselves.
