The first thing I thought of when I read this review was that this guy did not even read the book. He gives a bunch of untrue statements about the author, but does not speak about the content of the book. This is nothing more then a personal attack against Mr. Franco and certainly not a review of the material that this book contains.
First, I actually read the book and I did not see any pictures of Mr. Franco sparring with a pistol or a knife, except when he was talking about gun and knife defense. It would not be very realistic to teach weapon defense when you are unarmed. As for the reviewer's other comments, such as what kind of music Mr. Franco listens too when he trains. Who really cares? I happen to like Billy Idol, but if you don't then listen to whatever you want. Maybe, "Mary Had a Little Lamb" is more up your alley. The point is to listen to something that is really upbeat, because this type of music is more conducive to hard training.
Second, the picture of Mr. Franco and his dog looks fine to me. I do not even know why the reviewer would even stoop so low to go after a man and his dog. I happen to love animals and I believe that it is of low character to even mention something like that in a book review. This is an awesome book that has a wealth of information on what it takes to win a real fight when someone is after your life.
"Evil Must Be Vanquished", you asked what the heck that is? Well, that is a true statement. "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing"--Philosopher Edmund Burke. Mr. Franco is a good man that has dedicated his life to helping people fight back against evil that is very real in the world we live in. Next time you want to do a book review, stick to the content, because the author of this book is way out of your league.
