What other people are saying...

Excellent book. In most of my courses, which are reality and behavior based, I explain the study of behavior associated with stress and violence is most often more important than the study of tactics. It's easily provable with even a casual study of real life incidents. Many still do not want to believe this is true because they are so emotionally invested in range/dojo training. Regardless, thanks for the book. I will add it to my list of recommended material. - Trevor Thrasher, C.O.O. 88 Tactical/High Threat Systems

It's really well done, Adam, kudos to you. It really helped, and helps me to understand certain situations, to be more cautious and especially avoiding dangerous situations as best I can. It really openened my eyes, being myself someone with a big ego and a very high basic testosteron quality, even in my 40s... - Robert Fleurke

This handbook is a well-researched, well written, and extremely useful exploration into the major causes of interpersonal violence. Adam does a great job of breaking down the different types of attacks and looking at what would constitute an appropriate response to an attack. He also emphasises avoidance of high risk areas. - Greg J.

I received a copy of your well-written and informative piece and would like to thank you for putting this together. It provides a lot of good and useful information which should be read by everyone given the potential it has to save people from harm. - Steve

Very informative. I have been in law enforcement for seven years and this is spot on. It is a matter of just paying attention in the long run and knowing what to do. - Ghostwalker

Great read, as an instructor in conflict management, personal awareness and defence i found this manifesto insightful and easy to read and understand. it reinforces what i teach and i can see it being something that i will urge all of my students to read. great job and keep up the good work, we need more people to understand that self defence dosent start and end with physical skills. - Jason

I've just finished reading the handbook, I found it incredibly informative, I've only briefly considered the psychological state of people involved in conflict and the circumstances which cause a situation to escalate into violence, this book really opened my eyes. I only wish I'd read it earlier, perhaps I would've been able to avoid a rather irksome situation. - Hubaei

Adam, as a police officer, professional bodyguard, and self-defense instructor who has authored his own book on civilian self-defense, I must congratulate you on the handbook. I read it all the way through when I first received it out of professional interest and was not disappointed. It is amazing how close our conclusions are on the two types of potentially dangerous people there are in the world, the first engaging in what I refer to as "Anti-social behavior" (your Alpha male) and the practitioner of "Asocial violence" (your Predator). Your conclusions are spot on. Very few so-called "instructors" or "experts" understand this fundamental difference, but three decades on the street tells me you are absolutely correct. - Tom
