life threatening situation with a mental framework that threatening situation with a mental framework that the conflict as increasing levels of intensity is wrong If you ve been in competitive sports for any amount of time wrestling martial arts tc then you probably have this mental framework deeply Family Men embedded and it could take some serious mental re sorting to strip away all the play by the rules baggage My Review from 2013 Yes I read some strange stuffI have mixed feelings about recommending this book and for that reason I don t recommend it It s pretty much just a giant informercial that s supposed to scare the crap out of you and make you sign up for the course Target Focused Training There is no strategy in this book sa. Rtial arts or combat sports never really considering why Each trains you for competition in a safenvironment with rules and supervision agreed in advance Both give you Creative Participation effective tactics for fighting and are great for conditioning But if sport fighting is your thing this book will say nothing to you Its total focus is real violence the kindveryone wants to avoid It's about dealing with life or death threats where no rules Sabina Spielrein exist And that's completely different than sport fighting And there lies the difference This book addresses that place where social communicationnds and real. This was given to me on audiobook My mindset about self defense has completely changed after reading this book all with a simple analogy to swimming I thought that it was a little repetitive but very thorough in its xamination of our instinctual nature to survive and protect I loved that it touched on how competitive fighting will not necessarily help someone in a violent situation as I m sure we all come *across those cocky athletes at some point in our life Charisma and intimidation *those cocky athletes at some point in our life Charisma and intimidation t keep you alive This is a tough book to read not that it is poorly written far from it Rather because of the subject matter This book is about violence it is somewhat graphic and definitely disturbingThe ssence of the text is if you are in a situation where a criminal will apply violence to you then you must choose Personnel Management in Government either to apply violence to him or to be a victimThe author differentiates anti social situationsg when a drunk at the bar hassles you the Out of This World easiest solution is to walk away avoiding confrontation from asocial situationsg when the criminal has a knife to your neck and you have to decide if you will fight

like I d just watched Schindler s List again It wasI d just watched Schindler s List again It was that s my take on it I don t recommend the book This is not to say I don t recommend the course Target Focused Training because I don t know anything about the course It may be fantastic for all I know and well worth the money In fact I d probably take the course if the opportunity presented itself But I wouldn t read the book again Contrast that to The War of Art which I read twice while reading this book once This is a must read kind of Book Describes clearly the situations in which you need to act upon to save your life or the life of the ones you love Extremely repetitive and boring Best damn book ver written by mortal man on the principles behind surviving violent Gods and Heroes encounters must read for anyone interested in not getting killed by a sociopath which i assume isveryone alive today BTW download for free on TFT Website A very odd book Not without a plethora of Science, Technology and Culture excellent points but Larkin seems too committed to differentiating himself from the self defense community bymbracing brutality for any of his major philosophies to be super clear Although the author is known for a controversial presentation style the material he disseminates is vitally valuable for all security personnel Larkin is a staunch advocate for the ffectiveness of violence and his books have resulted in bans on his own international traveling This is because he is providing the public with information that they need to know Fortunately the legal attention has only facilitated an increas This book was painful to read As the author stressed violence is a bad thing and should be used as a last resort This book is not about self defense It s a book about the philosophy of kill or be killed when attacked The author gives no techniues on how to stop someone who is attacking to kill To learn sure fire techniues the reader needs to take classes or watch tapes The author s philosophy rings true violence is not pretty and should only be used seriously He hints at some of the methods Going for the yes for xample like you would a shark And not to look helpless be aware of your surroundings I learned not to be sueamish if I want to survive a deadly attac.
