Brevity has it's own value and this book fills an important niche by offering up profoundly practical advice on personal defense in a concise and unprotracted manner.Personally, reading this short book is as close as I'll ever get to sitting down with Colonel Cooper for a short chat about his thoughts on personal defense. I can almost imagine his voice as I read this book and his personality shows through.This book serves as a wonderful introduction to Colonel Cooper or as a personal defense primer that ANYONE can pick up and read quickly. It will leave most readers looking for more!I would absolutely feel comfortable recommending this book to even my mother without overwhelming her. There are very few books on this subject that would do well with that assignment.Considerations: - Yes, there are other, more extensive works available by Colonel Cooper, but at this time only four are available for the kindle. If you are looking for something with a little more content, check out: To Ride, Shoot Straight, And Speak The Truth - Is it worth $9.99? That's up to you. What is sage advice really worth? The book I just recommended(To Ride, Shoot Straight, And Speak the Truth) will set you back more than $25, making this book look like a steal. - Formatting and copy-editing are definitely substandard. There are a number of spacing and punctuation errors throughout. It's not like the book is too long to properly lay-out and proof. For the price, we should be getting a polished final product and frankly, Colonel Cooper's words deserve to be treated better.
