I don't know what got me to finally pick it up, but it was the best decision I have made in a while. This book absolutely rocked my world. I had already had my wake up call with his last book, but this took it to a whole new level. The information in this book is a perfect example of not knowing that you don't know about something. Everyone has said the same thing.....every martial artist and law enforcement personnel needs to read this book. I beg to differ. "Every Person" needs to read this book! If more people were enlightened to the information in this book we would have a lot less of the senseless social violence that plagues our society. The asocial violence is a totally different animal and that alone is information everyone needs in order to have a better handle on what violence is truly about.
Do yourself a favor and buy this book for yourself, your son or daughter, brother or sister, friends, coworkers, and anyone else you care about. I guarantee everyone who reads it will have to admit that they learned a ton from it and are better off because of it.
