Editorial Reviews


"This is a fabulous Book.
I wish I'd had it twenty years ago. How much hassle I could have avoided.
The words are informed, empirical and in places profound.
This is the 'door' bible for a new age.
Highly recommended."
Geoff Thompson - Author of Dead or Alive: The Choice is Yours and veteran ex-doorman

"Darren's book is a must read for anyone either working the doors or considering working the doors. It shows quite clearly that using violence need not be an option in almost every single violent or aggressive situation; there is, instead, a wealth of other techniques and options available to the street-wise doorman, or woman. If you want to survive in the industry, and go home happy after work each and every night, then don't work the doors without reading this little book." 
Robin Barratt, author, writer and former old-school doorman

More About the Author

Born in Perth, Western Australia, Darren has led a far from sheltered life. Although he has held many titles (lawyer, private investigator, entrepreneur, humanitarian, nightclub bouncer, custodial officer, door-to-door salesman, counsellor and abseiling instructor) Darren is really just a bloke trying to enjoy life and be of service to those around him. When not spending time with his beloved girlfriend, Christine, and family, Darren enjoys adventure kayaking and spending many hours in cafes sipping coffees and putting pen to paper on his wide variety of ideas for future books.

Format: Paperback
From the swamp of pre-history, psychology has been stronger than any muscle. Oddly, primitive violence is still a force in our societies, both in its physical manifestation and in our fantasy media diet. This is a book not about being a bouncer - but about being a psychologist. Darren Lee has been there. His knowledge is not from books or colleges. Even so, his insights into managing the ego of Annoying Intoxicated Persons (AIPS) are worthy of any university education in people management at any level. Most of us have never contemplated a career as a nightclub bouncer. Many folk would simply not have the balls to confront those scenarios.What we have here is a straightforward book of plain advice and tips on how to handle people. Not a single punch is thrown in this book and indeed, the book would fail in its premise if this were to be so. Whether you are planning to be a crowd controller or you are a student of applied psychology, this book is for you. OK - someone wants to fight you in a club - you can probably come up with some options...but can you get the troublemaker outside, avoid the fight and still have a good laugh? This book doesn't tell you how to do everything - but it tells you that you can if you act with intention. This book is an insight into a truly professional world that few of us consider. These guys are in the bars, clubs and venues every night, facing opposition and aggression.Few readers could not learn a few wrinkles from this text.

I found this book easy to read and relate too. Each point is conveyed in a simple manner and backed up with examples of how to use/apply where necessary. It was effective at stressing the most important tips to manage patrons and crowds without being an 'information overload'.

I've been looking for a book like this for some time. I was abit dubious at first but as I got into reading I found it really helpful.

I've been in security for 10 years and I still learnt so much from this book.

Buy it.

As a fellow doorman, reading this book did 2 things for me. One, it gave me confidence in knowing that a lot of what you wrote, I follow already. Two, I read ma many tips that will help me moving forward.
