Hey All, I've recently ordered a couple of books off Amazon by Sgt. Rory Miller - Meditations on Violence and Facing Violence: Preparing for the unexpected, and am really looking forward to their arrival. During a chat with my instructor he also recommended anything by Geoff Thompson and I have added a few titles to my wishlist that I would appreciate your thoughts on. The books I am looking at getting next are: Watch My Back: A Bouncers Story - Geoff Thompson Weight training for the martial artist - Geoff Thompson Force Decisions: A Citizen's Guide - Rory Miller (although I'm not sure if this pertains only to the US or if it would a worthwhile read regardless) Fighting from your knees - Geoff Thompson Are there any other specific authors or titles I should be looking out for when getting literature of a similar nature? As someone who for the large part has stayed out of fights or avoided confrontations my entire life, I would say I'm pretty naive when it comes to "real" violence and so any insight I can get into the realities of violence as it happens in the real world outside the Dojo would be great! P.S: There is a book which I heard about ages ago that I'm interested in reading but for the life of me I can't remember it's name or the name of the author... only that it was written while the author was in prison. Sorry I'm so vague on that but any hints towards what it may be would be much appreciated also! Thanks in advance!!!
