3.0 out of 5 stars Good info here but you have to work hard to get it
This latest edition has a couple of new chapters and a new cover. It covers the latest SIA regulations. However it does suffer like the last edition from being hard to digest, the author is guilty of taking a winding road to sometimes even the simplest point. I am a big fan of the authors books, he clearly is very capable and knowledgeable bodyguard but a much better...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good info here but you have to work hard to get it, 5 Feb 2007
This review is from: The Modern Bodyguard: The Complete Manual of Close Protection Training (Paperback)
This latest edition has a couple of new chapters and a new cover. It covers the latest SIA regulations. However it does suffer like the last edition from being hard to digest, the author is guilty of taking a winding road to sometimes even the simplest point. I am a big fan of the authors books, he clearly is very capable and knowledgeable bodyguard but a much better book on the subject has recently been written by James Brown "The Bodyguards Bible" I have also reviewed that book

2.0 out of 5 stars Tired, 28 July 2007
This review is from: The Modern Bodyguard: The Complete Manual of Close Protection Training (Paperback)
This manual is looking tired, yes its got a new chapter about the Security Industry authority, but that's about it, the rest is the same text as the 95 edition. I was really disappointed I thought it was a proper update, but all that has changed really is the price. I cannot recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting ....... Not sure where this guy did his training !!!!!, 6 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Modern Bodyguard: The Complete Manual of Close Protection Training (Paperback)
Bought this book as it was necessary to read it for my SIA qualification, however, it is 40 years out of date and as a practicing Government protection officer like reading a guide written by the writers of Viz (Need I say more!)
Good luck with it .... Read it with a pinch of salt.

3.0 out of 5 stars The not so modern bodyguard, 20 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Modern Bodyguard: The Complete Manual of Close Protection Training (Paperback)
Peter knows his profession inside out. His book however, after 5 reprints and 3 revisions, still has some mistakes, out of date information and tends to long windedness especially in his chapter 15 on weapon selection, handling and concealment. This is a pity, since he obviously has much to offer the new or soon to be CPO. In his defence, it must be said that he is a close protection professional and not a writer. Let's hope for a whole new book from Peter with all of the above points improved and corrected. This I'm sure will be a sterling piece of work and a benchmark in the industry.

Excellent book. Everything you need to know by someone who's been there and done it. Essential reading for anyone taking CPO training.

4.0 out of 5 stars CP training manual, 8 Nov 2010
This review is from: The Modern Bodyguard: The Complete Manual of Close Protection Training (Paperback)
This book has been around for years now, and notwithstanding the old photos and some dodgy haircuts, Peter's updated version is pretty much there or there abouts and good base standard for anyone on the circuit or looking to do a CP training course. The SIA competencies have also changed since the book came out and there are now 14 outcomes to the 1892 - 01/02 City & Guilds 140 hour course.

Whenver we run a refresher course, all candidates are sent a copy of this book to prep for the course.
