I'm very familiar with Kane and Wilder's books and teachings and was very glad to get an advanced review copy of their newest collaboration. I consider them both to be extremely knowledgeable in both the Japanese martial arts they practice AND real world violence and self-defense. I especially liked their book, "The Little Black Book of Violence: What Every Young Man Needs to Know About Fighting." This book contains the same kinds of lessons, but is shorter and the somewhat gruesome pictures of actual violence have been replaced by illustrations by DC Comics artist Matt Haley. If I was going to give a book about violence to a younger male, maybe someone in their young teens, this is the book I would choose. If you have their "Little Black Book," read this one if you want a quicker refresher course on similar material. And see the comic like illustrations of course.)
According to Kane, this book is about knowing what's worth fighting for, avoiding fights when you can, walking away when you should, prevailing when you must, and then managing the aftermath. That is a pretty good summation of the book.Read more ›
From a legal standpoint, it is basically against the law to be fighting in the first place, unless it is under the regulated and controlled conditions of a sporting event, such as; boxing, MMA, wrestling, etc. and then it really isn't a fight, but a combative sport. You should never ever be in a fight, but unfortunately you may have to defend yourself, and that is an entirely different matter altogether, and that is what Lawrence and Kris are trying to tell you in this very well written and informative book. Very similar to their highly respected earlier work, The Little Black Book of Violence: What Every Young Man Needs to Know About Fighting.Read more ›
Jack London, under the pseudonym "Ragnar Redbeard", once penned a 200+ page rant about manliness called "Might is Right." That, my friends, is the law of the street and the law of elite cabals, but sadly it does not apply to mere peons such as myself, or society as a whole (which probably includes you). I tried to be Righteous and double-cool and ended up spending my 21st birthday in gaol eating the grilled cheese sammich next to a wino with Cartoon Network blaring on the TV at full blast, and let me tell you I would have rather spent that momentous occasion elsewhere doing other things, but no, I had to be the tough guy who didn't let people talk to me in a disrespectful manner.
Are you a tough guy? Maybe if some stranger on the street insults you for no reason you too might feel compelled to teach him some manners? Perhaps your girlfriend felt offended by some oaf and demands you extract an apology forthwith? Or maybe some drunk fratboy at the pub is having a bad day and bumps into you deliberately in hope you'll give him an excuse to pound you? I have been in all of those scenarios. I thought I did quite well.Read more ›

I haven't bought the book. Nor shall I.
What is the use of such a ridiculous preview. A preview is supposed to whet your appetite, not annoy you with its stingy brevity.
As provocative as the title of this book is - How To Win a Fight - there's so much more to this book than just that. Read morePublished on January 6, 2014 by Adam Bockler

The majority of this book is for guys who think before they act, but it does have some good advice for those who may lack a healthy dose of common sense due to lack of experience. Read morePublished on November 23, 2013 by Dante
I was disappointed despite the low price. Some bits of decent advice that could have been said in a brochure or pamphlet but hardly a book's worth.Published on October 2, 2013 by Jaxn
