The New York Times bestseller that reveals the safety, security, and survival techniques that 99% of Americans don’t know—but should 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. 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. In his engaging and empowering book Spy Secrets That Can Save Your Life, Jason shares this know-how with readers, revealing how to: • prevent home invasions, carjackings, muggings, and other violent crimes • run counter-surveillance and avoid becoming a soft target • recognize common scams at home and abroad • become a human lie detector in any setting, including business negotiations • gain peace of mind by being prepared for anything instead of uninformed or afraid With the skill of a trained operative and the relatability of a suburban dad, Jason Hanson brings his top-level training to everyday Americans in this must-have guide to staying safe in an increasingly dangerous world.

Not all the family battles of young couples who want to marry occur among the fabulously wealthy Chinese families of Singapore. Paul Thompson and Miryam Fox hadn't seen Crazy Rich Asians but could have related to it if they had. Paul was a Yankee, city, and college boy, and a future Army officer at that. Mir was a student nurse from a family that lived across the river from Cincinnati in Northern Kentucky. Well, they say opposites attract, but when Mir brings Paul home to meet her family, the matriarch, Mamaw, has assembled the whole tribe to watch the hound dog, Fang, eat the Yankee city boy alive. Unfortunately for the clan, the only danger Paul had was in was being licked to death. The next few tests failed miserably. Although Paul couldn't drive a stick shift auto, he somehow managed to drive the tractor at one of the clan's farms, and when Mir's half brother, Bobby Lee, a noted barroom brawler, tried to take him down, that failed miserably. Paul's mother, who fancied herself the cream of society in a small town near Cincinnati, didn't think Mir was good enough for her son, but was unable to be impolite. Instead, she tried to run Mir off by taking over the wedding. Mir's choice in a small church in Taylor Mill, Kentucky, or the huge society wedding in a fancy event center in Cincinnati? When the hillbillies and the society family get together for the first time, things turn very interesting, but the couple averts a total catastrophe. But Paul's devious mind-he had been notified that he would be commissioned in military intelligence-and Mir's good common sense figure out how to deal with this with a plan that satisfies both families. But the rub is Paul's mother decides that both families should accompany the newlyweds on their honeymoon to Belize. Can the couple ditch them without a diplomatic incident? Will Bobby Lee see the inside of a Belizean jail? Or will the whole family? And can Paul and Mir get them out? Crazy Poor Rednecks is funny, suspenseful, and romantic. And it could even be true!
