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.
