Publisher's Summary

Clint Emerson, retired Navy SEAL and author of the best-selling 100 Deadly Skills, presents an explosive, darkly funny and often twisted account of being part of an elite clandestine team of covert operatives whose mission was to keep America safe by whatever means necessary. Just be happy he’s on our side.

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 of elite and modern-day counterintelligence agent. 

Emerson spent his career on the bleeding edge of intelligence and operations, often specializing in solo missions that took advantage of subterfuge, improvisation, the best in recon and surveillance tech and even elements of Hollywood disguise to combat the changing global battlefield. MacGyvering everyday objects into working spyware was routine, and fellow SEALs referred to his top-secret activities simply as 'special shit'. His parameters were: find, fix and finish - and of course, leave no trace.

While Emerson was a real-life Jason Bourne as well as a decorated soldier, he operated by only two codes: 'if you aren’t cheating, you aren’t trying' and 'it’s only illegal if you get caught'. The Right Kind of Crazy is unlike any military memoir you’ve ever listened to because Emerson is up front 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.

Dull as dishwater

The book never gets going, the narration is just awful,

I see the author has a book out called 100 deadly skills i wonder if the main one is boring people to death?

high five

This is worth a read/listen if you are a fan of Clints other books, I'd love to meet Clint & learn a thing or two from him in person but I thought this book would be better, understandably a lot has been redacted but I expected a bit more meat on the bone regarding his other books, when, how & why did he use the skills & how did did they work out?
but without doubt an exceptional human being

Not even finished but 10/10

This audiobook is exactly what I was hoping it to be. Having seen Clint on various YouTube videos I was hoping the audiobook was contain his dry humour and awesome stories and this didn’t disappoint. Easy to follow and only half way through but love it!!
