The Big Bloody Book of Violence
Defense Guide for Surviving Dangerous Times

Kane and Wilder’s Little Black Book of Violence will save lives. It will keep others out of prison. Their insightful and informative text is an invaluable resource for anyone who follows the warrior’s path and deals with violence, or who is interested in this life or death topic.

The hard-won wisdom of the two authors, combined with research, quotes, and passages from others, provide a guidebook on why and how to avoid violence, what to do when it cannot be avoided, and how to survive the physical and legal aftermath that follows most violent encounters.

Do yourself a favor. Answer all of the questions in Appendix A – “How Far Am I Willing to Go?” Then read this book in its entirety. Answer the questions again, and take the time to think seriously about your answers. Sure, there are many them, but this mental exercise could very well make the difference in you surviving and staying free versus ending up behind bars or as a statistic due to a violent encounter. Violence has consequences, many of them permanent. This Little Black Book will help you understand them, and more important, avoid the worst of them.

As an attorney, a self-defense instructor, and someone who has experienced violence, I was most impressed with the practical and realistic information Kane and Wilder provide in their Little Black Book. This is a must read for anyone who deals with violence, anyone who thinks they may encounter violence, or anyone who wants to increase their knowledge regarding avoiding, confronting, and surviving the aftermath of violent encounters. I commend both Kane and Wilder for providing this much-needed resource. Thank you gentlemen, you have just saved lives.
