    By far one of the most important books written on the subject on enhancing survivability and maximizes your toolset. I strongly encourage those that are interested in self-defense to order this book. You will walk away feeling better, and more aware than ever before. – Thank you – Rick

    A thoroughly absorbing book, which gives a great insight in to Rich’s early life, and the circumstances which influenced him to become the man he is today. I would recommend reading this in conjunction with the videos in the ‘Tactical Urban Combat Vol 1’ digital package, as they really compliment each other, and reinforce the important points that are made.

    P.S. Hey Rich, I made it this far bro! :-}
