After reading many of the reviews, and seeing that almost all of the negative reviews had nothing to do with the actual content of the book, I purchased a copy, knowing that propaganda is only defeated with positive action and the spread of truth. Look past the negative reviews here as they are pure left-wing tripe. Also, to the smear merchants, if in your attempt to slander an individual you turn people away from a resource created to help defend innocent lives from harm, you have shown yourself to be a true lowlife, worthy only of contempt.
Mr. Lapierre covers personal and family safekeeping from several angles. There is no paranoia, no right-wing agenda, no "hold on to your guns 'til pried from your cold dead hands" attitude. There is information about keeping safe at home, while traveling, while abroad, while in wilderness, while online, while dealing with medical issues and healthcare providers, and much, much more. It is a good approach to all-around safety for me and my family members. It even includes text directed toward children who must be home alone, cyber-bullying, and a lot more family-oriented safety information.
I consider it a well-rounded family safety resource, and it doesn't matter what you think you know about the author. What matters is where family safety falls on your priority list.
Apparently some of the readers of that blog decided that Mr. LaPierre did not deserve 4 stars, so they started putting in 1 star reviews. Some have tried to counter it by putting in 5 star reviews. Either way, People are no longer actually rating the book, and rather are rating the author because of his stance on guns.
Is this book good? No idea. But neither do all those that wrote reviews on or shortly after March 11. If this is a book you are genuinely interested in, decide whether to buy it by using the ratings before the haters decided to bash him.
And if you're a LaPierre hater, great. I don't like the guy either. But try to be adult about it. Trying to lower his book rating because you don't like his views is rather childish.
