4.0 out of 5 stars Old Version
I own the previous print of this book (very pink and purple) and I would say it's damn fine. Yeah it witholds some of the details for some specialist procedures and processes, but that is what a proper training course is for. The overall content of the book is very detailed and it has a wonderful breakdown of escort formations, with good pictures to help the learning. The...

2.0 out of 5 stars A shallow look at the industry
This book has some great insights and enough information to generate interest, but a manual it is not. It is peppered with lots of "authors notes" that seem to be there just to enhance the authors credibility rather than pass on information. Lots of stating the obvious such as "The mobile phone can be invaluable if radio communications have been knocked out and a team is...

4.0 out of 5 stars Old Version, 14 April 2014
This review is from: Bodyguard Manual (Bodyguard Manual: Protection Techniques of Professionals) (Paperback)
I own the previous print of this book (very pink and purple) and I would say it's damn fine. Yeah it witholds some of the details for some specialist procedures and processes, but that is what a proper training course is for. The overall content of the book is very detailed and it has a wonderful breakdown of escort formations, with good pictures to help the learning. The author notes that interject are far from self serving, instead allowing some insight into the practical side of close protection. This is not written for the dim thug who wishes to go into close protection. As mentioned within, the average bodyguard these days is well educated, well trained and professional.

This is a genuinely fantastic companion to a close protection course, but not much fun if you're a casual busy body looking to be a gung ho wannabe tough guy.

This book has some great insights and enough information to generate interest, but a manual it is not. It is peppered with lots of "authors notes" that seem to be there just to enhance the authors credibility rather than pass on information. Lots of stating the obvious such as "The mobile phone can be invaluable if radio communications have been knocked out and a team is under fire" The book was written for the American market but there are numerous mentions of the "British SAS" There are much better books on the subject and suggest you look at the Modern Bodyguard (peter consterdine) or The Bodyguards Bible (James Brown)
