Facing Violence builds further on new concepts which the author presents in a clear and concise manner. Most noticeably the author discusses the legal ramifications of being in a violent scenario and indeed surviving one and being brought to court as a result. This is an interesting reference and certainly helped me to understand some issues that the courts will consider when and if a violent encounter ends up in court, including how to show the jury and the judge that it was an act of self defense. Other areas discussed are the after effects of a violent encounter and how best to deal with problems a person may be facing, including writing the pro's and con's of the encounter or how to help someone else pull through their difficulties. In all this book is as good as Meditations on Violence and helps further and recap on the issues that are crucial to fully understanding the details before, during and after a violent scenario. A great reference and a good read.
