The Way of the Bodyguard: How to be a bodyguard. Knowledge not Gossip. Paperback – September 23, 2014
About the Author
My parents were Cockneys. I was born in Essex, England. We sailed to New Zealand. I went to Mount Albert Grammar School, Auckland University and worked for the National Art Gallery and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. I took photographs and was a conceptual and performance artist. I was put on a plane to New York, and told not to return. My first adventure in the Americas was rescuing the wife of a Navy SEAL in Mexico. My original aim had been to study the paranormal, not the psychotic. Out of that came "Dolphin Kicks and Cactus Pricks". In New York I met a lawyer who was a cross between Marcel Proust and Freddie Mercury. I could not save him. His story became "The Palace in TriBeCa". I worked in the world of computer and telephone integration that rapidly evolved into the Internet. I moved to Miami Beach and as a consultant solved other people's problems. These problems became bigger and nastier. I formed my own Private Investigation Agency, I worked as an investigator and bodyguard to the rich, the famous and the anonymous. After years of working on the idea of a book about being a bodyguard, I finally released "The Way of the Bodyguard". More than a manual or a textbook, the book explores in human terms what it takes to be a winning protector in a dangerous world. To be a bodyguard is unlike any other profession.

bodyguard in his book. The reality of the bodyguard business is hard to
define and Nick nails it. It is a difficult and always challenging role to
be a bodyguard and Nick has captured what it takes to be successful as a
bodyguard. I think these same skills can be translated into other
professions as well, making this a highly recommended book for all
professionals not just professional bodyguards.
I have all the bodyguards who work for me to read it as well as recommended
the book to my clients. The Way is a must read.
