It is a thinking person book.
One who cares.
I understand that this book is very new and I am giving it five stars with the assumption/hope that the formatting issues will be quickly resolved by the publisher.
J. Robideau
There are lessons to be learned from ordinary people in great danger.

Mark Walters and Rob Pincus use unfortunate situations involving unarmed citizens to teach critical personal security principles in this book.

Don't assume that these stories are boring just because they may not involve good guys with guns. The storytelling is excellent with enough detail to draw you in, but not so much that you become bored or it slows down the story. The stories themselves are also quite good. Mark starts off the book with a very personal story and it sets the tone for the entire book. Because the initial story was so "close to home" for the author, all the rest of the stories also seem very intimate and it is easy to place yourself in the shoes of the characters. This visualization is important to make the most of the principles being taught.

The commentary on each story is what makes this book truly superb. Rob Pincus comes in after each story, breaks it down, and analyzes it with an eye toward what we can do to make ourselves safer if confronted with similar circumstances or situations. Whenever I jump into the follow-up chapters by Rob, I imagine a coach at the chalkboard after the game explaining to the team what they need to work on for the next game. He does a great job of bringing out several lessons from each story and makes practical suggestions to the reader based on solid personal security principles without denigrating or attacking the characters in the stories.

Kindle formatting issues - The table of contents is not linked or available from the "Go to..." menu, nor can you skip from chapter to chapter. This is particularly annoying when the book uses a format where every other chapter references the previous chapter. Also, the actual content(stories and commentary) didn't start until I was 13% of the way through the text of the book.

Format: Paperback
A pistol is only one tool for a person's self defense in public or at home. The basics of self defense start with the mindset that is often described as "situational awareness." If you go to a shopping mall do you watch the people around you? When walking out of a parking deck do you preserve a safe distance from the parked cars so that a would-be mugger can't so easily hide between cars?

This book gets into stay-safe attitudes. There are lessons to be learned from ordinary people in great danger. Just owning a pistol is not enough. Standing in front of some bulls eye targets at a range and punching holes in paper is only a start. What counts is a sense of preparedness. Street-smart precautions, aside from being armed, include: taking a powerful flashlight with you to a movie theater; locking the door to the restroom if alone at night at a rest stop on an interstate trip; and taking care where you park in a parking lot or where you sit in a restaurant.

The crime statistics in this country show that it is less dangerous than the past three or four decades. During that time practically all states have restored their citizens' 2nd Amendment rights by instituting "shall issue" rules for "carry permits." The number of firearms in the hands of law-abiding civilians has skyrocketed in the past forty years, but violent crime has decreased. I guess that is why voters are not in favor of the gun control legislation pushed by many members of the political class.

Format: Paperback
"Why do I need a gun? That's what the police are for." I can't count how many times I have heard those words. If you have spoken those words or heard them from someone else then you need to read this book. The follow-on to "Lessons from Armed America", Mark Walters and Rob Pincus examine the tragic stories of several law-abiding, unarmed Americans whose lives were changed forever in a handful of seconds. Straight forward writing by Mark and brutally honest commentary by Rob gives the reader the opportunity to see inside those violent encounters and that bad things do happen to good people. Additionally, information on handgun selection, training, mindset and other resources are included. Even if you have no desire to own a gun, read this book and give yourself a reality check. You might change your mind.

Sometimes he truth hurts. But sometimes what hurts us most enables us to help others best. I hope the story of my mother's murder had helped those who have read it. I've talked with the author multiple times and appreciate his willingness to help share my story. My name is tony walker and you can read about me and my mother in this sequel.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be an intelligent review of real-world events with solutions designed to educate the reader as to the potential processes required to prevent the possibility of similar events as well as what actions can be taken to survive a critical action event. While no-one can predict how and when or even if they will be attacked, this book provides food for thought in on how to prepare for the unknown. The style in which the information is presented makes this an easy read, which is important in today's busy society.

I GET THE CONCEPT HERE & was looking forward to more stories & a little more in-depth analysis than we got. This seems to be aimed more to the beginner or novice self-defense person. To which I would recommend it.
