For all of you interested in the protection of key figures and at-risk people, an extremely insightful book has just been released by the best in the business.  This 650 page book, titled  "Just 2 Seconds", which was co-authored by one of the most respected figures in the protection field, Gavin De Becker, includes original work of new insights arising from ten years of research, the five essential lessons for protectors, 400 pages of summarized attacks, near attacks, and incidents against at-risk persons all over the world from 1960-2007, with more than 1400 entries and over 100 pages of additional material and resources. 


For those of you unfamiliar with Gavin De Becker, he is the founder of a 200-person firm that provides consultation, protective services, and logistical support to many of the world’s most prominent figures in media, politics, and culture. A two-time Presidential Appointee at the U.S. Department of Justice, he is currently a Senior Fellow at UCLA’s School of Public Policy. Mr. de Becker designed the MOSAIC systems used to screen threats to Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court, CIA officials, Members of Congress, and the Governors of twelve states. He has appeared many times on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Live, the Today Show, 60 Minutes, and in TIME and Newsweek. His bestselling books on violence, including "The Gift of Fear", are published in 14 languages. 


I strongly recommend checking out the website (www.just2seconds.org) where the book can be purchased at a discounted price (just $46.00 instead of the regular $58.00)

I've read this book as well and highly reccomend it.  The work being done by Mr. de Becker in this field is nothing short of fascinating.  He and his firm are pioneering concepts in protective security I think will long-serve those of us in the industry.  Please give it a look on www.amazon.com/gp/product/0615214479/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top and see what others are saying.


Thanks

I used one of his books for my college class this semester and i loved it.  I am going to be re-reading it again.  It is called the gift of fear.
