Thank you Jonathan for all of the wonderful insight you have put in this book. As a single female in a world that is unpredictable on a daily basis this book has given me even more insight on how to be more aware of my surroundings. I now have three grandchildren that I will use these tactics in real life to keep my family safe. I worked within the Forensic Science Realm for over thirteen years and had the pleasure to work with all areas of law enforcement from Government to State and Local but never was given such insight that has been written within this book.
I spoke to Jonathan at one point because I love to run outside on a trail near where I live. I had told him of all the attacks on females jogging in this area and was starting to get a little nervous about running. He gave me advice on carrying mace and how to be aware of my surroundings and what to look for. I never forget his first words to me when I told him of these attacks, he said be like a "Badger" if anyone tries to attack you. I will be that Badger if I need to be!!
I will take away many aspects of this book and incorporate this into my every day routine.
Thank you Jonathan for not only writing this book but for all your outstanding service you have given to our Country... you are greatly appreciated.
Sincerely, Dianna Griffin
It's because though I'm not certain how diverse this book's audience actually will be, the simple fact is that everyone should read it. Everyone! Can I say it again? EVERYONE!!!
This isn't about fear mongering, which I don't support. It's not about paranoia, which, maybe I am a little, but it makes me safer. This isn't a book about terrorists and a fear of Islam. It's a book about personal safety, and that's it. My husband is a "the odds are on my side" type, and I find it frustrating, but ok. I'm not that type though. I'm the type that tries to figure out where is the best place to sit in a movie theater in the unlikely event that a mass shooter comes in. And I think that what people don't understand is now that I'm used to it, this kind of mentality takes up a minuscule part of my life and thought patterns. It's just routine. It doesn't make me feel like I'm a slave to the process. I don't actually FEEL paranoid, nor do I think I'm crazy. Every moment where my personal safety comes into question, it's a simple chain of thoughts and decisions, and then I get on with my life. Done and done!
And to that end, this book is a necessary, critically important resource to literally ANYONE who is willing to take the time to read it. It's written in an incredibly easy-to-read format that makes the concepts clear, and yes, easy to understand. It takes readers through the mind of attackers, NOT to instigate aggression or paranoia, but because once you can look at a situation as an attacker would, you can keep yourself out of harm's way. The information found in this book could save your life someday, and not even due to a mass shooting, but because it will make you more aware of your surroundings. Cars. Busy intersections. Dangerous streets. Dangerous situations.
Will I fall victim to a mass shooting? In the opinion of the author, "The odds actually say no, and that [I] am more likely to fall victim to a car crash or illness". That is my opinion as well. But will the information in this book help in a myriad of other situations that are far more likely to happen? Violence; rape; murder? Absolutely!!! It's about awareness, and your position in relation to the world around you. So let me just say it one more time...
EVERYONE should read this book!!!
And as a final thought, here is my favorite quote: "If you do find yourself in a bad situation that you may have started because of your anger or because you were too prideful to let it go, take my advice: Swallow your anger or pride and look for a quick exit."
