A recommended read to build a defensive mind

A couple weeks ago I was introduced to a man I have heard of that has relocated to our area. His name is Steve Tarani. You can Google it for more. Steve has been coming to the range with me and few friends once or twice a week now. For a man of his reputation and creditionals he is a quiet and humble.

Steve wrote a book called "PreFense". I am almost done with it but I can say that my family will be reading it. His building block approach to situational awareness, pre planning, attack indicators and avoidance are very well done and is geared towards the soccer mom and professionals alike. "Preventing bad thing from happening to good people" is what he says.

I think it is worth the read. His book would have put me well ahead when I started my career. I had to learn those things the hard and fortunately lucky way.
