So I was looking through my martial arts books over the weekend and I started to think about the great ones in my collection (Tim Cartmell's "Effortless Combat Throws" certainly tops the list), and the plethora of terrible ones I cling onto for some unbeknownst reason. So it got me thinking what I would want to see in a book about self defense? What book would I suggest my sister read, or my aunt buy?
What qualities would be valuable for the layperson? I have said it before and will say it again, if anyone expects to retain any self defense skills then those attributes MUST be trained on a regular basis. That said... what subjects / topics / situations / techniques would you like to see in a book geared for self defense? Take a moment and fill out the poll (multiple answers are okay) on your right and/or leave a comment below.
