This was not an easy read, it isn’t a light summer beach book. This is a thought provoking, hard, scary book that EVERYONE should read. Reading most of the stories, I found myself thinking I’ve been there, right up to where it all went wrong. This just served to remind me that bad things happen to good people and we need to be aware. Mark Walters relates the true stories in a matter of fact way, not embellishing, the stories stand on their own. Coming after with analysis of what might have been done different is tricky, but Rob Pincus handles this without laying blame.
This book doesn’t attempt to convince the reader that a gun is a panacea. It offers real life situations that went horribly wrong, and discusses how situational awareness, training, and yes a gun, might have made a difference.
If you can read these stories and not relate to any of them, you live in a bubble. I found myself thinking of situations in my life and how lucky I was they didn’t meet the same end. Scary, un-nerving and thought provoking. This is a must read.
