The Art of Urban Survival

A Family Safety and Self Defense Manual

These are turbulent times with seemingly endless news reports on crime, corruption, war, riots, natural disasters and nuclear catastrophes.

Rather than hope that help will be available when you need it, this book will provide you with all the information you need to deal with, and survive, hundreds of potentially dangerous situations.

This is an encyclopedia of crime prevention and disaster preparedness  knowledge that covers a wide spectrum from; what to do if your child has been abducted, to how to decontaminate after being exposed to nuclear fallout. From; how to tell if someone is lying, to the three basic tactics used by predators.

In the not too distant future, this guide to surviving in troubled times is going to be invaluable to all of us. I learned so much from reading this book. I’ll be reading it again to make sure that I haven’t missed anything because the way things are going, we’re all going to need this advice and practical help.

theplancoverThe Community Survival Plan
How to Organize, Train, and Fund a Community Preparedness and Self-Reliance Group

During the early stages of a catastrophic disaster, most communities will have to deal with the crisis on their own.

The greatest number of injuries and deaths occur during the early stages of an emergency, and that the sooner help arrives, the greater the chance of saving lives.

If communities were organized that would undergo some basic training in disaster survival and rescue skills, they would improve the ability of citizens to survive and to safely help others until responders or other assistance could arrive.

36coverThe Thirty-Six Strategies of Ancient China
Timeless proverbs on the art of being cunning

The Thirty-Six Strategies is a unique collection of ancient Chinese proverbs that describe some of the most cunning and subtle strategies ever devised. Whereas other Chinese military texts such as Sun Zi’s The Art of War focus on military organization, leadership, and battlefield tactics, the Thirty-Six Strategies are more suitably applied in the fields of politics, diplomacy, and espionage.

These proverbs describe not only battlefield strategies, but tactics used in psychological warfare to undermine both the enemy’s will to fight – and his sanity. Tactics such as the ‘double cross’, the ‘frame job’, and the ‘bait and switch’, can be traced back through thousands of years of Chinese history to such proverbs as ‘Hide the Dagger Behind a Smile’, ‘Kill With a Borrowed Sword’, and ‘Toss out a Brick to Attract Jade’ respectively.

Though other Chinese military works of strategy have at least paid lip service to the Confucian notion of honour, the Thirty-Six Strategies make no pretence of being anything but ruthless.
