The book is Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life and oh my gosh, talk about 233 pages of information we need to know now!  This is information for the common Jill or Joe, written in a manner that is understandable and actionable.  For example, do you know how to think like a criminal, really?  Have you ever cased your own neighborhood or your own home?  Do you even know what to look for? In usual Book Festival fashion, today I share an interview with Jason Hanson, the author of Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life.  In addition, I have a three copies of his book up for grabs in a giveaway and for sure you are going to want to enter this one. I really didn’t have to do much research since this how I was trained when I was with the CIA for seven years (2003-2010), and this is what I do for a living. Since I’m busy running my Spy Escape and Evasion business, it took me about six months—longer than if I’d been able to focus on writing full-time. We live in a world that is always changing, and we need to be prepared when faced with a dangerous situation. I believe we should be prepared for everything: power outages, tornadoes, wildfires, hurricanes, and the collapse of the dollar.
These are important steps that you can start now and slowly build up while maintaining a budget. What book or movie, fiction or non-fiction, do you think gives the best portrayal of what could happen? Jason and his publisher have reserved three copies of Spy Secrets for this Book Festival Giveaway. Some of you may have seen Jason on Shark Tank where he shared a tip for releasing your hands after they have been bound up with duct tape.
That being said, if I had to pick a single chapter as my favorite, it would be the chapter on “How to Run Counter Surveillance Like a Pro”.  I leave it to you to figure out who might be spying on me and why. This is another fantastic Book Festival book and another must-have for your survival library. If you enjoyed this article, consider voting for Backdoor Survival daily at Top Prepper Websites! In addition, SUBSCRIBE to email updates  and receive a free, downloadable copy of my e-book The Emergency Food Buyer’s Guide. When Jason Hanson joined the CIA in 2003, he never imagined that the same tactics he used as a CIA officer for counter intelligence, surveillance, and protecting agency personnel would prove to be essential in every day civilian life. In addition to escaping handcuffs, picking locks, and spotting when someone is telling a lie, he can improvise a self-defense weapon, pack a perfect emergency kit, and disappear off the grid if necessary.
Bargain Bin:  For your convenience, here is a list of all of the books in the current Backdoor Survival Prepper Book Festival. For over 25 years Emergency Essentials has been providing the highest quality preparedness products at great prices.  Plus, each month they feature sales that quite honestly are fantastic.
Emergency Essentials carries a wide variety of equipment and supplies – all at competitive prices.
Some budget friendly items in our kit would be glow Sticks (4 for $1) and a fire starter tin with cotton balls, vasolin, and a Bic lighter.
I would say the most budget friendly items in my kit are the recharged AA batteries as they only only cost a fraction of a cent (cost of electricity to recharge them).

The most budget friendly items in my kit are the items I found at a garage sale – headlamps for $1, which work perfectly! My son has gotten the prepping bug and is always watching out for items to add to our packs (he’s a natural bargain hunter, having had to grow up in a single parent home). A bottle of clorox for water purification, vinegar and baking soda.The last two have many uses.
The most budget friendly ideas probably include Ramen noodles, other easy-to-cook foods that only require adding hot water or heat, pastas and canned sauces.
Unless you've eaten garlic soup, it can be challenging to imagine how a huge handful of sliced cloves simmered in water for fifteen minutes could possibly be worth writing about. What worked: This bare-bones soup was indeed easy, comforting, and tasted far more complex than its short ingredient list predicted.
What didn't: I didn't think it was totally necessary to transfer some of the soup to a separate skillet to poach the eggs. Suggested tweaks: If you wanted to bulk up the soup a little more, consider adding diced carrots or zucchini, or a cup or so of frozen peas. As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of One Good Dish to give away this week. About the author: Kate Williams is a freelance writer and personal chef living in Berkeley, CA. Enter your mobile number or email address below and we'll send you a link to download the free Kindle App. It details simple ways people can be more aware of their surroundings and the dangers that they may have to confront, so they’ll be better prepared to deal with unforeseen dangers in our world.
I was trained in many different skills including evasive driving, hand-to-hand combat, firearms, and more, including some things that I cannot share. Additionally, I continued doing speaking engagements and security consulting, as well as teaching everyday citizens at my Spy Class and at my Spy Ranch in Cedar City, UT. I hope that I never have to use my skills to defend my family, but I’m comforted knowing that I have the knowledge and training to hopefully stay safe.
This is where we have the Spy Ranch, which is a 320-acre facility where I teach classes including Escape & Evasion Driving, Advanced Pistol Course, Defensive Riflecraft and many other courses that I believe every person can learn from. Our society is unpredictable, and when people are in desperate situations they do desperate things.
I also write a weekly blog post where I share many ideas that everyday citizens can use to keep themselves safe. It’s important to always do research and learn as much as you can so you are prepared when faced with a dangerous situation. He has also honed his “positive awareness”—a heightened sense of his surroundings that allows him to spot suspicious and potentially dangerous behavior—on the street, in a taxi, at the airport, when dining out, or in any other situation. I earn a small commission from purchases made when you begin your Amazon shopping experience here. This is an easy tool for finding products that people are ‘wishing” for and in this way you know what the top products are.  All you need to do is select the category from the left hand side of the screen.

These are followed by the dollar store items I purchased, along with the items given to me by my prepping neighbors. It looks at two communities, one in Malibu and another in Nantucket, that are facing serious erosion problems and the increasing possibility of disappearing for good. Admittedly, the debate is also about man and Nature, and we can’t seem to untangle the issues long enough to know what the most pressing facet of the problem is. Sofia Coppola lingers among the teenagers she depicts in all their delusional and raucous splendor. It seems like the only humble approach possible, and maybe it’s what will ultimately save us from ourselves. I certainly questioned the idea before making David Tanis's version in his new cookbook, One Good Dish. Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required. After starting with the police department I was offered a job with the CIA and the Secret Service.
Also, build up your three-day food and water supply with other survival items, which I call an Escape Bag.
Other than than that I agree the beans, rice,etc are the most economical and the knowledge I’m acquiring. Look at the way we live—we build houses on cliffs, on fault lines, in the path of things, and when something happens, we don’t learn history, we build it again, right on the same spot, bigger, better… Fallout accumulates. What they do with their lives from this point forward, and what I do with mine, are the only true indications of what successes we’ll be able to claim later in life. But those fifteen minutes on the stove are transformational—the garlic mellows and sweetens, infusing the water with profound savoriness.
Buy once, learn how to save seeds (and actually do it), and you can get food for the rest of your life. That’s the real problem, in my eyes, and also the saddest part about this entire debate. So as Coppola did, I invite you to linger with the people you meet in the Vanity Fair article. They were the same ones I went to school with who are now detoxing from heroin and cocaine addictions, removing tattoos they grew to regret, and dealing with the legal consequences of lives they put on the fast track long before the time was appropriate.
Tanis calls it "save your life" good; I'm not sure if it'll go that far, but the recipe will certainly save a harried dinnertime.
I had the entrepreneurial bug, and that was when I began teaching everyday civilians the secrets that could one day save their lives.
My Brother lives in desert too and he says, invariably one or two try to winter in the house with them.
