I finished reading the manuscript of your book late last night. It was hard to put down after finishing the first chapter. I can tell that you genuinely care and are concerned for the safety of your readers and their loved ones. This project is a labor of love. Unlike a typical safety guidebook on self-defense, you cover a wide variety of topics, from shopping malls and cyber safety to the workplace and senior assisted living homes. I like how you provide your safety tips from different perspectives and then back them up with your rationale and explanations.
The subject-matter throughout the book is timely and helpful, especially the advice you provide to citizens regarding how they should respond when being arrested (whether it be unlawful or justified) and how they can exercise their 4th and 5th Amendment rights. Your ability to explain a scenario in detail and help the readers view a situation from law enforcement’s perspective offers understanding, clarity, and empathy on both sides.
The writing style is straightforward and eloquent, and your narrative is engaging. Crime Proof is a “must-have” in every home, business, and organization so that readers can revisit the topics and still find the content refreshing and applicable.

I’m an avid listener of the gun for hire radio show and come to the range from time to time.
I normally listen to the latest episode every monday when I make a 1hr commute for work.
Today I listened to episode 510 and you had told a story about someone who had an enraged woman break into their home by busting out the pane glass in their door and then sticking their hand through to unlock the door. As I am listening to that story I began thinking of all the times I feared that would happen when I used to live at home when I was younger because we had beautiful french doors that just screamed to me “break one glass window and you can enter the home with ease”.
You talked about having the windows replaced with safety glass or something that doesn’t break/shatter easily and how most new doors come with safety glass already installed. Well I just moved into a new 1st floor apartment 3 weeks ago and surely the primary door that we use to get in and out of the house has half pane windows on the upper half of the door.
My ass drove immediately home after hearing you speak on this just to see if the glass in our door was safety glass! I was surprised and relieved to see the etching indicating that it was in fact safety glass.
THIS RIGHT HERE……is why I already placed a pre-order for your book crime proof. I want to acquire as much information & knowledge that I can to learn about “what I didn’t know that I didn’t know”. Something this simple but yet so uncommonly known by the everyday person is absolutely invaluable. I cannot wait to read your book. Thank you again for all that you do to educate the people.
