5.0 out of 5 stars The absolute bible of keeping yourself safe 2 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've found this book absolutely brilliant. I saw it advertised in one of the tabloids I was reading at work (someone else's ;-) ) and thought it looked to have some useful information - what an understatement that turned out to be!

First of all, the book covers very many subjects about keeping yourself safe - whether it be on the street, travelling or even online or protecting yourself in your own home.

As an ex-SAS guy, he has a lot of experience, including in war zones and the like, and he really does know what he's talking about. Very refreshing for me also was the fact that he puts his points across pretty bluntly and with no bull - as an ex-squaddie myself, I prefer that style.

The only reason I would hesitate to make this book compulsory for everyone (if I were in charge), is that it would give too many hints about how you were going to defend yourself to potential burglars, kidnappers or assailants!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a good book that covers a wide range of situations. It doesn't go into a vast amount of detail, but the reader is given enough information to stay engaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different slant 23 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Some excellent information and ideas that I haven't seen in other survival books. A worthy addition to any survival library.

This is a modern day version of the old 'Lofty Wiseman' book that came out years ago. This is more urban survival than the 'finding yourself on a desert island' stuff in Lofty's book. Some of the tips you could use every week, like how to stop unwanted guests etc etc, but there is also the parts that you hope you never need like the hijacking and plane crash sections.
I think anyone that travels a lot should have this, if you are a seasoned business traveller or a teenage backpacker there is something in it for you that could save you a few pounds if you can avoid being robbed using some of the techniques, or even save your life (but hopefully you wont need those parts)
