1.0 out of 5 stars False.
Sadly, combat will never be as easy as looking at some techniques in a book, especially when that book is directed towards something you only really get one shot at : Self Defense.

By how it claims to be able to allow you to defend yourself REGARDLESS of your AGE, SIZE or SKILL. Well. That's a lie.

So I'm potentially an Old Man who's morbidly obese...

This review is from: Self Defense Made Simple: Easy and Effective Self Protection Whatever Your Age, Size or Skill! (Self Defense and Self Protection) (Kindle Edition)
The writing is direct, concise and clearly understandable. No fancy tricks or moves, just simple ways for anyone- even a 5' 2'' female-to defend themselves. I intend to read the book as many times as I need, to thoroughly assimilate the contents. Thank you for this excellent 'self-help' guide.

A great little book with some common sense, easy to follow guidance on how to defend yourself if the need should ever arise.

No silly fancy nonsense, just simple, effective tips.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like the book, 13 Oct. 2014

This review is from: Self Defense Made Simple: Easy and Effective Self Protection Whatever Your Age, Size or Skill! (Self Defense and Self Protection) (Kindle Edition)
Like the book, the author has a nice easy style of writing and try's to bring various elements into the topic of self defence,if your looking for a kindle book on macho self defence bull than this is not for you,on the other hand if your looking for a book that will try and give you a understanding on the why's and if's and the different approaches and options you can take than this is one to consider (even if some of the author's comments seem like common sense,should already know that);Though i believe there is no book or dvd which can replace a class in self defence from a recognised respected organisation.

1.0 out of 5 stars False., 2 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Self Defense Made Simple: Easy and Effective Self Protection Whatever Your Age, Size or Skill! (Self Defense and Self Protection) (Kindle Edition)
Sadly, combat will never be as easy as looking at some techniques in a book, especially when that book is directed towards something you only really get one shot at : Self Defense.

By how it claims to be able to allow you to defend yourself REGARDLESS of your AGE, SIZE or SKILL. Well. That's a lie.

So I'm potentially an Old Man who's morbidly obese and has never done any sort of physical sport, but one read of this book will make it possible to defend myself against a potentially armed attacker.

Age means being frail unless you're in good shape (Which you supposedly don't need to be), A lack of strength means everything you do is basically less effective (Apart from Grappling, which requires skill) and lack of skill means you're not going to know what to do.

I can agree that skill can be POSSIBLY improved by a book, but no amount of these strategies will be any use if your a morbidly obese old man.
