Mark Walters, Host of Armed American Radio
I've read a LOT of concealed carry books over the last seven years. As you can imagine, I've seen decent books, so-so books and I've seen utter crap! This book is, hands down, the BEST written and BEST laid-out book I have ever seen on the topic of concealed carry. Michael has done a phenomenal job on this!
Tim Schmidt, Founder, USCCA President, and Publisher of Concealed Carry Magazine

The information is more accurate and up to date than all the other better known defensive handgun books I've read.
I also liked that there is a complete absence of fluff and chatter. Every paragraph contains relevant information.
Also, even if you are knowledgeable about some areas, I predict you'll find some useful nuggets of insight.
It covers everything from firearm & ammunition characteristics & nomenclature, to shooting techniques all the way through to physiological & psychological responses just before, during & after the use of a weapon for self-defense, to legal requirements for the use of deadly force & how to interact with LEOs (law enforcement officers) after the fact. It is richly illustrated throughout, and is extremely well-written. I got a TON of useful information out of it, and enjoyed reading it.
