As Jeff Cooper so expertly explains in this book "Principles do not change according to geography, history, or sociological whim. If a principle exists it must be immutable, for that is what a principle is —a truth standing apart from the mood of the times"
Wow - think about that for a minute. Although this book is focused on principles of personal defense, think about how many other American principles we have allowed to be diluted and corrupted because of the mood of the times.
The basic principles of personal defense have not changed and anyone who understands and deploys them consistently will not be dependent on others. That, my friends, is what defines freedom and liberty.
In a time where most of society has been emasculated into thinking that either threats don't exist, or the gov't should and will rush to our aid if such an event were ever to occur, 'Principles of Personal Defense' dispels such notions, and impresses upon the reader the need for taking personal responsibility for ones own safety.
It doesn't discuss weapons, or training per say, but mindset - which is the foundation for both. I read it in about 2 Hrs.

It is basic, but direct and thought provoking.
If you ever plan to, or think you may ever need to, defend yourself from hostility then you MUST read this book as part of your preperation for that eventuality. Personally, I believe anyone in a line of work where conflict may occur, and anyone who in their everyday life may encounter violence, HAS TO read this book.
It is not going to tell you how to do what you will need to do, but the thought provoking nature of it will certainly help you toward the mental preps needed to act if and when a horrible time comes.
