Written by a former Survival Instructor of the SAS (Special Air Service - England''s equivalent of the United States Special Forces), The SAS Self-Defense Handbook provides easy-to-follow illustrated instructions - for both men and women - on coping with all kinds of threatening situations, from muggings to knife attacks. The author teaches you strategies for both avoiding conflict and getting out of a dangerous situation quickly and safely. Learn how mental attitude, body language, assertiveness, and the ability to overcome fear can prevent you from becoming a prime target for criminals. Learn which body parts are the most effective weapons in fending off an attacker, and which are the most likely targets for attack. Defend yourself from sudden grabs, strangles, weapons, and road rage. And find out how to deliver the SAS five-second knockout, a defense previously available only to British SAS Special Forces soldiers. (71/2 X 91/2, 160 pages, b&w photos, illustrations)

This is a good basic self defense book, not a complete guide as the name suggests. Many of the more dangerous techniques are obviously left out. The author has a great deal of knowledge on the subject, and it is unfortunate that more information could not be included. Also it is extremely hard to learn self defense techniques from a book, but you will get some understanding of what to do to defend yourself from a typical attack. It will not teach you to win a fight in every situation, and clearly you may only use harmful techniques in a real life or death situation, otherwise you'll end up in a lot of trouble and wind up in jail. An easy read, but there are better books on the subject.
