If you haven’t checked out book 1 of 100 Deadly Skills then you need to remedy that NOW. This first book covers many skills for personal protection whether you’re a normal dude working a 9 to 5 job, a world traveler or you’re an operative for one of the 3 letter agencies. There are many practical skills found in this book and the new Survival Edition that we all can all learn and benefit from. You’ll learn to look at everyday common items around you differently and see them as assets to your survival. Take the following skill for example; Improvised Body Armor. It’s a damn good skill to keep in the back of your mind if you’re traveling. Hopefully, you will never have to use it.

Check out the following video as Clint Emerson demonstrates making Improvised Body Armor by using two of his books, two small ceramic plates and some duct tape. As you will see in the following video, this improvised body armor was able to stop both .22LR and 9mm.
