"Should you judge a book by its cover? In the case of Krav Maga
Extreme Survival, by Gershon Ben Keren, absolutely...The book has
plenty of clear colour photos to take you through what to do...For
a book about such bad events, which could easily have been gloomy,
instead I found Ben Keren's ending, like the whole book, empowering
and uplifting." -Professional Security Magazine
