This book was recommended to me by a friend and i am pleased i took his advice.
Being from Liverpool made it all the more interesting knowing that these real life storys happened in my home town.
The three men concerned,Dennis Martin,Gary Spiers and Terry O'Niel where definitely cut from a different cloth.They put all their hard work and training out there and pressure tested it,threw away what didnt work and was left with a potent force of self protection which evolves even today.
It is very honest in its opinion on martial arts ie,what works in real life and what is ineffective,thats not to say it is disrespectful to these martial arts,all mentioned are judged on merits and pitfalls.
For anyone who has read Geoff Thompsons work then you will really enjoy this book,(Geoff Thompson endorses this book).
Overall,this book is an empirical observation of real life situations by very experienced individuals.
