I highly recommend this book. It is one of the best Mr. MacYoung has ever written. I am a student of WingTsun and the Filipino Martial Arts, so I wouldn't use some of the techniques which are described in this book. But SO WHAT? All this widespread squabbeling about which martial art TECHNIQUES are the best is rubbish anyway. (Don't believe it? Continue getting punched in the nose or worse!) As Mr. MacYoung (and fortunately not only Mr. MacYoung) points out: The underlying CONCEPTS have to be right and understood! Apart from that, what works in your situation is a good technique. What I really liked about this book was the deep insight you get into the types, causes and types of countermeasures against violence. If you understand what's going on, you will have less fear. If you get an idea (just an IDEA) of what you can do to handle it, your chances of survival increase rapidly. While this book is clearly professional, it is not only for professionals!

This book is a must for anyone interested in self defense. Regardless whether you are a security professional or not. This book teaches you how to end a fight quickly and effectively. Animal Mac Young, covers everything from physical as well as psychological aspects of a fight, and the best way to do it, if possible "legally" which I think is an important aspect, most other books overlook. You can tell the man writes from personal experience and this helps you grasp the whole concept of the book better. Also the language he uses is great and it makes reading the book even more fun. Like everything you read in this subject, YOU must go out there and try to practice the techniques on a regular basis, if you do though, the info on this book might one day save your life.

Marc McYoung has by fare more praxis in streetfighting as he has as a bouncer. If you have read two of his best book ("Cheap Shots, Ambushes and other Lessons" and "Floor Fighting") you will be disapointed with this one, even if you are a bouncer a want to increase your capacity. If you are a bouncer, a bodyguard or a security professional, you should opt for Peyton Quinn's book "Bouncer Guide to Barroom Brawling (it contains by fare more practical informations). If you want my opinion, I think that Marc McYoung wrote to many useless thing in this book; he filled his books with long sentences and endless chapters... but where are the informations we are looking at at the time we buy this book ?

Marc Macyoung is a product of the streets and as a Cop working those "streets", I can tell you the info Macyoung gives in this book can save any Cop's life. I know, one of the techniques in this book saved mine! Macyoung shows techniques that are simple but effective designed to put the bad guy down quick. He discusses legal aspects. I can see that Macyoung is well versed in "verbal judo". He knows talking is much better than fighting in the long haul. His war stories are entertaining but make a point. This book should be required reading in every Police, Correction, and Probation Officer Academy in the United States. This is an excellent book not only for law enforcement but the average citizen that wants to avoid situation where he or she could get hurt.

As a security guard in a millitary hospital I have come across my fair share of violent encounters. I can honestly tell you that this book is by far the most comprehensive and usefull book I've ever read on the subject (and thats more than I care to count). Marc goes throught every phase of a conflict and shows you steps to take to stop it as well as how to prepare your self so you can controll the situation no matter how they react. What I like about this book is there is not alot of technical mumbo jumbo, or self gratification, it's just common sense fighting. The information in the book is just like the title says "Ending Violence Quickly", Marc doesn't waste time tell in you how to do "this maneuver if he does that" he teaches you how to contain the guy in no time. Wich is good because some of the 250lbs Marines I've faced, I'm sure could have cleaned my clock had I not had the mind set and moves that are in this book. I highly recomend this book to every one even the guys who never plan on being in this sort of conflict.

This book should be required reading at every Police Academy in the United States. As a Police Officer in Atlanta, I've used information found in this book to de-escalate bad situations and if diplomacy didn't work to put the bad guy down quick. Every Cop who wants to go home at the end of his shift should invest in this book. Marc Macyoung has been there and done that, let his experience, not theories, get you home safe.

Down to earth and real. This book is a must read for anyone interested in self defense. Dont look for any magic techniques or fantasies about becoming a bad ass. Marc MacYoung writes in a clear easy way that strips away alot of the crap people use when discussing fights and especially fighting techniques.

This book is one of the most useful materials I have come across in the field. Don't bother buying martial arts manuals...the techniques in this book will let you overcome almost anyone regardless of size or experience (on their part) by remembering a few simple ideas. Trust me...I've used them!

In his famous entertaining style, the author shows here all the important points in stopping a person that has crossed the line of violence. Including a psychology of different types of violent people, and how to act towards them each. With many helpful (and sometimes funny) illustrations.
