I have been a fan of Mas Ayoob ever since I first read, Ayoob Files: The Book and his other oldie but goodie, In the Gravest Extreme: The Role of the Firearm in Personal Protection, of which I am a firm believer that both of these books should be in everyone's personal library. Now on with the review...
This book is broken down into five chapters of which I will give you a brief synopsis of what each chapter contains.Read more ›
Ayoob describes three historical figures well-known as gunfighters, what to expect when in a deadly force situation (what the sympathetic nervous system does to the body, etc), and great advice for those who carry concealed.
Highly recommended. For additional in-depth and excellent information on deadly force situations, check out Lt. Col. Dave Grossman's "On Combat" or perhaps his "On Killing" (both books also recommended by Ayoob in "Combat Shooting").
I should note that I purchased the Kindle version of this book; some of the captions for pictures seem to be misplaced but other than that it is fine.
