‘Meditations on Violence’ comments

Posted by on October 24, 2009

I just finished reading ‘Meditation on Violence’ by Rory Miller.
Highly recommended reading for self-defense/security minded folks.
A few quotes from the book.
From the preface – Never, ever, ever delegate responsibility for your own safety. Never, ever, ever, override your own experience and common sense on the say-so of some self-proclaimed ‘expert’.
Never, ever, ever ignore what your eyes see because it isn’t what you imagined.

And later – In general, respond to the situation as it is. Not to your fantasy and not to your paranoia.

I will be reading this book again, taking more time to digest the lessons he imparts.

    It is. When Sean is done, borrow it from him. Then let me know so I can read it in more detail.
