'International Security' Book Review

The Kindle version of 'International Security, Personal Protection in an Uncertain World" by Orlando Wilson recently came out.

I have waited for this to come out for a while, and was not disappointed. Mr. Wilson has delivered a very good personal security primer here.

Not a book of checklists or esoteric philosophy, Mr. Wilson presents the essentials of security to the reader in a manner that requires the reader to evaluate their own security needs, and take action appropriately. He includes some brief examples from his career in Executive Protection to help illustrate his points.

I feel this would be a very good companion book to 'Escape the Wolf' by Clint Emerson.

I would like to see both books in the future include more personal examples of what to do, such as in this article from HammerHead Combat Systems on using reflections in daily life for situational awareness.
