Book Description

Nov 1993

Mr MacYoung deals with a very neglected and overlooked aspect of combat, how to deal with and survive an attack by a gang. At first it would seem that you are reading a book about running away however, Animal gives you an easy to follow guide on how to successfully evade and escape and apply hit and run tactics on your attackers. Deatils of how to use everyday common items to slow down and even hurt your attackers is given and how to successfully clear fences and gates easily and effectively. I would reccommend this book to every martial artist and people involved in self defence. Its a must

4.0 out of 5 stars One of a Kind 14 Mar 2013
By Charles TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This book is quite unique as the entire book is devoted to running away from violence.

The author recommends running away as the main strategy for dealing with violence. When dealing with groups running away is considered the only option and can also be used to thin the group out or tire them before turning round and fighting. It makes the excellent point that hit and run strategics are used by the special forces and are very effective.

There is advice on how to scale fences/walls and when is the best time to attempt such feats.
Getting friendly with local dogs by giving it food so the dog won't bite you when your running through their garden also hopping garden fences at the corner so you can switch to a different garden if there is a dog in the garden is suggested.

Some advice on hiding such as when hiding don't look at the searching opponents (people can sense when they are being watched) and people can spot eyes in bushes.

There is advice on how to disappear and stay gone such as not using your credit card, not contacting friends/family and staying away from old stomping grounds.

There is advice on how to park a car for easy escape from parking lots and how to deal with having your car tailed.

I think most of the stuff in this book is obvious if you think about it but these are the kind of mistakes people (including myself) make in real life.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterful work 26 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Marc Macyoung is one of the most insightful self-defense writers of the 20th century. This book is probably the best self defense title available at Paladin Press. Street E&E discusses the necessity for a "strategic withdrawal" when one is faced with impossible odds. Of course this withdrawal is not simply a retreat but rather an action that is the only sensible alternative to getting beaten by multiple opponents. As Macyoung poigniantly states " the only thing one man can do against a gang is get killed." This work defines hit and run tactics for modern street survival. The fighter who knows how and when to change from a ghost to a tiger is truly formiddable. This fighter has the option of escape or counterattack via guerrila war methods. The entire withdrawal process is explained in this book. From the initial breaking away to the eventual counterattack and disappearance; Macyoung points the way. This book is invaluable for anyone considering self-defense studies. Since no one is invincible and many prefer to "live to fight another day" this book is indispensable. Modern criminals exploit the advantage of superior size, numbers, and armament. Therefore a reasonable person must be prepared for an intelligent withdrawal. This withdrawal is not merely running away but rather the two point system of street evasion and escape. Sabin Smith

5.0 out of 5 stars Animal's Finest 23 July 2004
By C. Bedford Crenshaw - Published on Amazon.com
In my opinion, this is the finest of Animal's books. Animal has always written in order that the reader does not get his butt kicked. The first couple of chapters are nothing more than a condensed version of his other books. But the later chapters are what makes this book work.

Animal does a great job in giving you tips in leaving a scene in a hurry, especially if you are running away from a gang. Some require prior actions, liking feeding neighborhood dogs, but most do not. He also discusses how you can counterattack your pursuers.

Lastly, Animal talks about how to stay away from those seeking you out. First he tells you how to hide away from the police and organized crime. Then he tells you how to avoid the local yokals.

All in all, a fine book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read 18 April 2002
By mruseless - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoy reading MacYoung's books. They are the no-holds-barred version of martial literature. As someone who has trained for years, but only had the unfortunate test once, I'm not sure that all of Marc's advice is useful for those outside the "Life". However, I will probably refer to this book for a few new outdoor training ideas. His section on jumping fences and other low objects is full of good ideas.
One recurring theme rings very true: "The only thing one man can do against a gang is get killed." I've met too many martial artists who think they can take on an army.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars actually 6 Jun 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is very long-winded and tedious. Although a lot of Macyoung's advice is sound, the book as a whole is far too drawn out and protracted. It's quite a heavy read and I frequently became bored while reading the book, Another criticism of the book, is that it should have been more structured, in terms of the presentation of the material. Finally, the patronising manner in which Macyoung addresses the reader, is most off putting and disconcerting

5.0 out of 5 stars How to Think: 101 4 May 2000
By Michael B. Bruneio - Published on Amazon.com
This gem of a book details how to get yourself out of sticky situations you probably shouldn't have gotten into in the first place! MacYoung gives sound advice on how to live your life when persons of nefarious intent are gunning for you, how to think and plan ahead for danger, and the realities of violence. True to Animal's inimitable style, this is also one of the funniest books he's written. Get it.
