I last spoke with Dan Schilling in episode 64 about his NY Times Best-Selling book “Alone at Dawn”. Today, he has a new book, The Power of Awareness.
Schilling uses his personal experience from conducting combat and covert missions around the world, founded and then commanded two special operations squadrons – the second being one of America’s most clandestine special mission units, and he worked alongside the CIA, FBI and NSA to defeat terrorists.
Because of his unique career, safety and risk calculation became the fabric of his DNA. He emphasizes that understanding and mitigating risk is a learned activity and his mission with this book is to save lives.
We’re not talking about self-defense skills here–weapons, martial arts, etc. Dan is sharing about how to avoid dangerous circumstances, oftentimes by applying very simple acts and observations – from how to safely withdraw money from the ATM, how to navigate in an unknown city or area, what the difference is between instinct and intuition, and how to respond if you’re forced to take more drastic action.
