Pete Canavan's impressive book does neither. "Self-Defense Survival Guide" is replete with pictures, vivid descriptions, and, perhaps most importantly, sage advise.
The pictures are well-done, something one doesn't find too often in a self-published book. They're detailed, crisp, and illustrative. They make sense.
The accompanying descriptions obviously come from someone who not only knows the moves and tactics, but also has taught them to MANY people. It often seemed that the author was reading my mind and answering the questions I had.
Many self-defense books come across as canned and trite, full of old chestnuts and bromides. The author here tends to avoid those and instead offers advice that a person would actually need in order to put up a proper -- and working -- defense. For example, the author includes a section about getting into the "mindset" of defense, thereby overcoming the "fear" of having to hurt another human being.
All in all, this is an excellent book, an excellent guide. Get it because even a casual perusal will more than likely insert that one nugget of information into one's psyche that can be the difference between life and death.
Many books on learning how to fight and protect yourself fail to address how to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for a fight - both before and after the conflict. This book does an excellent job of explaining the need to develop the mental toughness of a warrior with a never-quit mindset so that you are able to do what you must in order to survive. There is a video training included that goes into a lot more detail than what is discussed in the book, and is a great bonus that is included with your purchase. Videos of many of the specific defenses are also included, which helps put it all together for the reader.
One of the most interesting aspects that is discussed is the need to ask yourself the tough questions before you are forced to make a decision under duress. If you ask yourself what you would do in a given situation ahead of time, it reduces the time it would normally take to make that decision. This allows you to act without hesitation when your life may hinge on your ability to react quickly. I found that to be an invaluable point that I learned from the book.
Overall, this book is an excellent introduction to self-defense that is a must-read for anyone interested in learning more about how to protect themselves and their family who has limited or no knowledge of self-defense or fighting. However, it is also a book that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in further honing their existing self-defense skills - both physical and mental.
This book contains a wealth of information and tips that could save your live, and that is priceless no matter what the cost
