Chris Ryan is a Former SAS corporal and the only man to escape death or capture during the Bravo Two Zero operation in the 1991 Gulf War.
He also writes cracker yarns about rather challenging situations where the elite military find themselves completely tested. Chris Ryan is an expert in dangerous situations and here he tells you how to keep yourself and your family safe from the perils of modern urban life.
This book provides tips on how to avoid terror in the various ways it manifests itself in our modern world. The book is not so much about jungle warfare but about what to do when you are judging how to deal with road rage from buffoons. I personally have a Nissan Tiida Hatchback. I look forward to the day when I can refer back to what I learnt on page 57 and swing my car around in a tight 180 degree handbrake turn. If not to escape an adversary; at the very least to impress my workmates in the office carpark.
Chris’s SAS psychological training provides him with an incredible insight on how to manage risk and maintain focus. In situations of Road Rage he suggests you just let it pass you by. “Their stupidity is not your problem, your safety is”.
Chris does not shy away from the need to win if you choose to fight. But we should reflect upon our kung fu by considering the words of wisdom of one of the world’s leading combat experts….
“Fighting should always be the last resort. I feel pretty confident handling myself, but I would never start a fight if I didn’t have to.”
This book, like life, is full of surprises. Fear does not have to stop us doing brave things. It means that we need to plan so that we can survive and thrive and live to enjoy life safely and productively.
Chris’s insight into resilience and trauma is worth the price of the book itself…
“I am often asked if I have any psychological techniques for dealing with pain and fear. This is my advice: admit to yourself the possibility of what about to happen. That way, you’re not in for a double whammy of the event itself and the horrific shock of its occurrence”
