I assure you that once you ever face situations that Jeff Cooper describes, you will be equipped to handle them. This book literally could save your life.
Do not be a victim even when you're the victim!
If this book were longer, it would be even better but listen... if it were longer, fewer people would read it. It would sit on shelves for "one of these days" and then it might be too late.
I do not know Jeff Cooper but I have read one other book of his and I am so very greatly impressed. He teaches so much more than defense in his writings, although for this jewel, it's primary reason for being is to teach you to protect yourself.
Jeff doesn't claim the concepts in this book to be original, nor does length have bearing on quality. The concepts in this book can be critical to survival. If our entire society thought and reacted in this manner, our crime rates would drop dramatically, and the overall society would be more polite and better behaved.
I have purchased and given away at least a dozen copies of "Principles". It has ALWAYS been money well spent. This book bears repeated reading.
As has been said by Cooper and others, having a gun no more means you are armed than owning a piano makes you a musician. This book is a solid foundation for arming yourself against a violent criminal attack, whether or not you choose to protect yourself with a firearm.
This does not mean I will pass on other Jeff Cooper books, but I will certainly read ALL of the reviews and try and make a better judgement than what the cover looks like.
Mr. Cooper is a true expert on the subject of self-reliance, self-preservation, firearms training and self-defense. This book is a very good primer for practical & realistic self-defense. Buy IT, READ IT, DO IT.
