In 2008, we put together our most engaging book ever by commissioning a slew of brand-new articles from our most popular authors and distilled excerpts from all corners of the Action Library, from best-sellers and hidden gems. The result was the Paladin Book of Dangerously Fun Stuff, a wildly eclectic compilation of dangerously fun topics that offered something for every taste.
Now, we’ve dug even deeper into the Paladin archives and commissioned more new articles for the second volume, Even More Dangerously Fun Stuff. This fun-filled, action-packed sequel offers all sorts of advice and stories from some of Paladin’s most colorful, experienced, and opinionated authors. Pull up a stool and hear what these gentlemen have to say on topics you’re not likely to find in those crummy magazines in your doctor’s waiting room:
- Real-life soldier of fortune Paul Balor, on how to survive an armed roadblock without getting shot.
- Desert dweller, world traveler, and all-around loafer Paul Garlington, on living high on the hog without a job.
- Former pawnbroker Max Edison, on buying and selling precious metals without getting screwed.
- British SAS veteran Ken Conner, on keeping a military coup covert . . . and world-famous mercenary “Mad” Mike Hoare, on improvising to save your ass when it gets discovered.
- Maverick nutritionist Fred Beyerlein, on why it’s a terrific idea to drink booze on an empty stomach.
- • Former bar bouncer Peyton Quinn, on four strategies he has used successfully to defuse barroom brawls.
- Paladin stalwart (and sometimes PI—did you know that?) Ragnar Benson, on outwitting your interrogator on the witness stand.
- Privacy advocate Dennis Fiery, on remembering where you stashed your valuables in that place no one would ever think to look but now even you forgot.
- Police officer Ralph Mroz, on identifying five deadly firearm training traps.
- The inimitable Jeff Cooper, on “bushfear” and the special allure of an African safari.
- Former police commander Charlie Beene, on seven types of public events that can easily escalate into full-blown riots.
- Preparedness pioneer Bruce Clayton, on the evolution of survivalism—and where you might fit in the spectrum.
All that, plus more than 50 other articles, written not only by some of Paladin’s best-selling authors but a slew of lesser-known yet equally intriguing experts on all sorts of dangerously fun stuff . . . for boys who never really grew up.
