Customer Reviews

Prepared Senior Citizen

This book should be read by all senior citizens who want to take responsibility for protecting themselves. My husband and I used this book in conjunction with a concealed-carry class, and it is extremely clear and covers everything we needed to prepare us for owning and using a firearm. I hope we're never in a situation where we need to use a firearm to protect ourselves, but with the knowledge gained from this book (and plenty of practice at the range!), we have gained skill and confidence.

Awesomely Interactive iBook

You really did a nice job on this. For me, you have set the standard for what an eBook or an iBook should be. This book shows that a tremendous amount of effort and thought went into it. For those of you on the fence, get it. You will not be disappointed!!!

This iBook is also available in paperback. I highly recommend forgoing the paperback and opting for the iBook. It's so packed with content that the paperback would need a Volume II to compare.

It strikes a perfect balance between informative and fun. I even caught my wife listening to it on the iPad. If you are considering personal protection and home defense options and techniques, make this iBook your first stop.

A very much needed book

This is the best book I have seen to date on personal and home defense. It contains many tips on avoidance and awareness that almost all other books I have seen.

The book is interactive and it adds a lot with video and 360 degree views of situations. I highly recommend this book if you are at all worried about protecting yourself and avoiding trouble.
