This is a good film and one that I did enjoy but I must say that it's not what I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way ahead of its time, 3 Jun 2011

It can be a little disjointed and difficult to read as it is written in short paragraphs that do not always flow but it's well worth sticking with as this book is oozing with pearls of wisdom from the great man. This book is the closest I'll ever get to training but it's apparent that his philosophies were and still are way ahead of their time. In fact I imagine that this book will be just as relevant in 50 years time as it is now.

The topics covered include: the legal and ethical issues, the dynamics of violence, avoiding violence, the counter-ambush, the freeze, what to do when you do need to fight and dealing with the aftermath. All the sections are fantastic with Miller not just… Read more
