I'll start with the worst first - at least some of the legal information is incorrect. I'm not an attorney, and I do not know all of the laws for all of the states. However, I do know something about the laws in the state of Florida. According to this book, it is legal to open carry a firearm in Florida. This is wrong and can land you in jail. Under Florida law, it is illegal to open carry. There are a few exceptions - but they are exceptions only.
If the book got this one wrong, I wonder how many other errors there are in the legal section.
I also find some of the advice in the book to be questionable such as just trusting the police to get it right when they investigate an incident in which you had to shoot someone. While I am a huge supporter of law enforcement, the fact is you want legal representation to ensure your rights are protected. Cops can make mistakes, and you don't want to spend your life in prison because of a well-intentioned error.
I'd recommend checking out Massad Ayoob's books for general advice on self-defense and firearms, and Jon Gutmacher's works on state laws regarding firearms.
On the upside - the book does look good. It has a much higher level of production quality than the typical gun books from other publishers. If the content was updated/corrected, this could be a good book.
