This in not simply a step-by-step guide to winning fights. It is also an in-depth study of the criminal mind at work. Murderers, rapist and muggers reveal why they targeted certain people for attack, which crimes are opportunistic and which are premeditated. Geoff Thompson uses these interviews, and his own unparalleled knowledge of violent encounters, to teach precautionary measures that everyone can take to make themselves less venerable and explains what victims should do when confronted by an attacker. The choice is yours: learn from this proven master of self-defence and increase tour odds of remaining alive, or risk being unprepared when a violent predator gets you in his sights.
