Buy this book. Read this book right away. Walter Philbrick is the real deal, with fierce gentle focus, a boundless spirit, a humble soul, a huge heart and profound knowledge and experience. The guy is deep and his communication straightforward, just as if you are sitting around with a regular guy, just talking about stuff, important stuff that could save your life. If you can, stop by his store/office, say hello to him (he works 24/7!)--that is an honour worth sharing about with your family/friends/kids. He lived/lives what he writes. Put into practice what Mr. Philbrick identifies and simplifies for us untrained, unaware, unprepared civilians, and generously and thoroughly shares with us simply because he truly cares. He has proven his dedication and expertise by putting his life on the line protecting others and having them survive and living to tell about it himself.

Mr. Philbrick's provides concise, simple to understand and apply 'new practices' that can save you and your family from being victims/victimized, from injury, loss of/damage to property, or the ultimate price none of us wants to pay....

After over 40 years of military and USG service here and abroad, finally I find a book that is concise, clearly written, easy to understand, humorous where it can be, serious where it should be. I give it 4-stars because I rarely, if ever, find a 5-star anything. I have heard of Mr Philbrick and his exploits in South Florida and on the west coast. He has come across the USG radar more than once though always as a trusted source and someone to be relied upon. Even if you are an anti-gun advocate - and want to rely on your neighbor who has one for your ultimate protection - this book is full of advice with tried and true methods to protect your home and family, inside your residence, or out-and-about on the streets. This book does not disappoint. Some things as simple as planting thorny rose bushes in the right places; buying a dog large enough so burglars cannot neutralized it by placing it in an oven or freezer; or how to position your car to avoid a car-jacking, abduction or robbery are extremely useful and would only be considered by someone with Mr. Philbrick's expertise, experience - and willingness to consult with burglars, robbers, and other felons willing to offer their own "expertise". The section on protection, defense, and actions following an act of terrorism is worth the price of admission alone. All elements of the federal government agree on one thing ... it's not if, but when the next 9/11 happens, will we be better prepared? Will you be? This book helps you determine that.

Comprehensive and Concise.

The author has put together one of the most complete, comprehensive and easily digestible books on the art and science of personal Survival. As an LEO and Firearms instructor, I have had the privilege of being trained by the Secret Service, the FBI, US Navy SEALs, US Army Special Forces 5th Group and IDF Duvdevan commandoes. "Surviving" offers information to the average citizen on par with that which is offered to some of the "best of the best" found anywhere in the world. I suggest this book to all of my students.

This book is full of hands on knowledge and real world techniques on how to survive life threatening encounters. The real life stories are very interesting and educational. It is well written and I found myself staying up late because I wanted to read the next story. I was not kidding in my title - this book could very well save your life or someone you love.

This book is outstanding! It is very easy to read and has so much information for the novice to grasp!!! From the 100 easy tips to the detailed accounts of the life Walter has led is amazing. I couldn't put this book down and kept telling my husband all of the things for which we should be aware. I just ordered more copies to give to friends of mine. We all need to be prepared for the worst and be aware of our surroundings. I've been involved in personal safety and community preparedness seminars. The book Surviving is a wonderful addition to anyone's reading list in today's changing times. Great Book Walter!!! I hope you will continue to keep us informed.
