Clint Emerson, retired Navy SEAL and author of the bestselling 100 Deadly Skills, presents an explosive, darkly funny, and often twisted account of being part of an elite team of operatives whose mission was to keep America safe by whatever means necessary.
Clint Emerson is the only SEAL ever inducted into the International Spy Museum. Operating from the shadows, with an instinct for running towards trouble, his unique skill set made him the perfect hybrid operator.
Emerson spent his career on the bleeding edge of intelligence and operations, often specializing in missions that took advantage of subterfuge, improvisation, the best in recon and surveillance tech to combat the changing global battlefield. MacGyvering everyday objects into working spyware was routine, and fellow SEALs referred to his activities simply as “special shit.” His parameters were: find, fix, and finish—and of course, leave no trace.
The Right Kind of Crazy is unlike any military memoir you’ve ever read because Emerson is upfront about the fact that what makes you a great soldier and sometimes hero doesn’t always make you the best guy—but it does make for damn good stories.
Good read, mostly anecdotal. Military intelligence redacted all the juicy stuff. there’s something slightly off about Clint Emerson but in a good way. He is a warrior but he’s also wise, writing about his experiences in a lucid and deliberate manner. As long as the likes of him also are out there protecting the republic, advancing its interests, you and I can breathe easy. Semper fi
The silent profession?
Another “inner workings of the SEALs book.” I thought this was the silent profession, but I guess money (book deals) talks…
