Read full description of the books:
You gotta love someone who inserts a quote at the beginning of each chapter, setting a tone for the section, and those quotes range from the Bhagavad Gita to Tweety Bird. :)
Such is the range of reading and experience Marc "Animal" MacYoung brings to his writing. It also demonstrates his very down-to-earth style of writing, the book taking on the tone of a bunch of friends down at the pub, sharing a cold drink and life experiences.
That said, this is an outstanding reference. How can you choose to ignore someone who's an expert in all the nasty stuff that can happen with violence, simply by virtue of his still being alive. After all, that's how you gain such experience: living through it.
This book is well-organized with great information and suggestions as well as real-world examples. There is definitely a lot of theory, but like anything, you have to practice it to take it from theory to practice. MacYoung does a great job of telling you what to practice that could possibly save your life one day. He also delves into the realm of what could get you killed some day, especially concepts and techniques taught by instructors who are trying to make a buck without regard for their students, or are simply too ignorant of the topic to know better.
I recommend this book for anyone and will definitely recommend it to all advanced and adult students at my school. Hopefully they won't find themselves in circumstances where they have to apply anything from this book or what they've been taught in class, and if they've paid any attention to lessons about awareness, they won't. But if they do, some nugget from this book, along with constant practice in life, might just make a positive difference for them.
