At a time when personal security risks are on the rise internationally, Introduction to Executive Protection, Third Edition takes readers beyond "the wizard’s curtain" of fear, unawareness, and surprise to give them the tools to sharpen or renew their skills so those they are tasked with protecting remain safe.
This third edition of a bestseller goes beyond the basics which were at the heart of the first and second editions. Though it still covers those basics, it goes further by exploring and discussing the lessons learned in the history of assassination―from ancient times to the present.
Examining the psychological, philosophical, professional, and training aspects of close personal protection, this edition represents the latest thinking on executive protection in light of increased personal security risks worldwide. It discusses both residential and business security and also covers the first response for natural events such as common medical emergencies.
Using his experience from the U. S. Secret Service, the private sector, and his private training, the author includes real-world examples of political and religious assassination attempts. He also provides practical advice on close personal protection of VIPs, celebrities, and business executives.
Filled with illustrations that demonstrate the various protection methods in action, Introduction to Executive Protection, Third Edition is much more than an introduction. It is a powerful learning tool in the art of close personal protection. It offers insights and considerations that both the novice and practiced veteran will find invaluable in their quest to ensure personal protection.
