When anybody who is interested in protecting themselves or their loved ones from bullies and criminals stumbles on a book like this, it is almost compulsory that they avail themselves of it. For a mere pittance, the opportunity to learn self-defence techniques that don't require years of martial arts training, is too important to pass up.
Even experienced martial artists should purchase this short manual, perhaps just to round out their own knowledge, or learn a new point on the human body or technique they were previously not aware of.
I have always been receptive to Oriental philosophies, Taoist techniques and traditions etc, but I find William's straight-forward and direct way of imparting his instructions refreshing and easy to absorb.
Five stars for the book's uniqueness, its method of delivery, and its importance in today's world.
