The Forward is by Massad A. who is one of the most prominent voices in the industry. The dual-author approach to this book is very engaging, seam-less and easy to read. I hope they do a follow up book at some time, it was just that good. I bought the Kindle version and had no issues with format.
It is well worth the read for any level of civilian operator from newbie to instructor.
The real life encounters are well written and make you feel as if you're there. Kathy's follow up discussions manage to bring new information to the story, without being unnecessarily repetitive.
The only negative aspect of the book was I found myself wanting more stories, I could have kept reading an encyclopedia sized version of this book. It was really that good.
It's a great book, for a value price when most books nowadays are 30+ dollars. I definitely think you should check it out if you or a loved one is thinking of going armed in this society.
I've read books written by Jackson and Ayoob. Very helpful writers.
I'm a person who believes in reading as much as possible on all aspects of gun related topics. Especially when it involves our second amendment right to bear arms.
Yes, I highly recommend this book.
I was very pleased. The book reads very quickly. I finished it the same day that I received it (although I was up a bit late getting those last chapters done).
I liked the format, which mixed stories of actual experiences with relevant ethical and legal implications. A couple of times I thought the connection between the anecdote and the legal discussion wasn't particularly tight, but I perceived that as the cost of making sure all of the important topics were discussed.
The discussion of defense situations that don't go as planned, where everybody loses (including the good guys), was incredibly moving. I can't think of any other gun book that I have read that did that as well (and I have read a few). That anecdote and the following discussion are reason enough to buy the book. The gravity of lethal force encounters is very tangible in that story.
This is the only gun book that my wife has ever read. Like me, she read it in a single day, cover to cover, and she was also impressed. I recommend the book to friends interested in concealed carry and application of lethal force.
I'd like to see Kathy, or someone, write the same kind of book for other regions of the country, and not just for cities. It would be an even better resource.
Now when you read this book, don't get all he-man on the world and feel you are ready to handle anything. Altough you will feel better about going out and have a better outlook, make sure to be smart about getting a professional class from a live competent instructor.
Again the book is great, I am not a friend, or paid advertiser for this book. Just a guy who read the reviews and figured I would give it a go and I tell you the money was well spent on this one...
Get this book and learn something from it...
No formatting problems for me on Kindle. It came with footnotes and references at the end as with a regular book.
