A Self-Defense Book for Everyone 6 avril 1999
Par Margaret Stevens - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
"When Seconds Count" is one of the best, if not the best, book on self-defense that I've read. Mr. Franco takes a step-by-step approach to explain in detail the various aspects of self-defense. He paints a rather graphic picture of the evil human beings are capable of committing. Next, he provides, in detail, the preliminary aspects of self-defense: awareness, assessment and de-escalation. By increasing our skills in these three areas, it is possible to avoid the need to fight back. But if that is not possible, Mr. Franco provides the tools to do so. The last option available is the use of deadly force. He explains, in detail, the advantages/disadvantages of using guns and knives.The material is presented in such a way as to make the reader understand their responsibily in their own self-defense. I particularly liked the quiz,which helped me assess my risk as a crime victim. In addition, Mr. Franco provides a chapter on CFA Safety Rules & Guidelines covering automotive, street, child, home, workplace, telephone and vacation & travel safety which I have found to be very useful. I recommend this book to anyone concerned about this issue. I particularly would recommend it to women. Although I initially found some of the material rather graphic and disturbing, further readings and experience convinced me of its truthfulness. The less illusions people have about self-defense, the less likely they are to be surprised by violent crime.

as good as it gets 19 avril 2004

I have read just about every book out there on self defense and this book by Sonny Franco is right up there with the best of them. Like all good self defense books, this one puts a big emphasis on awareness and de-escalation skills.But where i think this book stands out is when it gets down to the nitty gritty- the physical confrontation with the attacker. Mr. Franco teaches survival- plain and simple. The techniques described are meant to maim and kill. Nothing pretty, just whatever is neccessary. I thought this book was very empowering. If one fully integrated the information from this book into their psyche, that person would about as ready for trouble as you can get.

Awareness and realistic physical technique finally meet 22 avril 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There are a lot of books in this field that ignore the hard realities of street crime. The reality that your opponent won't comply with your self-defense techniques. The reality that you need to be aware, always aware of your surroundings if you are to have the best chances for survival. This is not one of those books. Franco takes an incisive look at the anatomy of violent crime, starting with heavy coverage of awareness, assessment and de-escalation skills. The awareness exercises alone are worth the price of the book. He then proceeds to give a reasonably simple, hard-hitting tutorial in both unarmed and armed self-defense. He winds up the book with a series of appendices covering safety, the aftermath of violence, selecting a self-defense school, and realistic training.
If you only buy one book on self-defense, buy this one. You won't be sorry. (You also won't be sorry if you buy Franco's other works.)

One of the best books available, period. 29 janvier 1999
Par T. Nichols - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've been researching this field extensively for about the last 4 years, and When Seconds Count is one ot the best books I've read. It heavily emphasizes awareness skills (a topic sadly lacking in most books.) It is also dedicated to showing the reader how to counterattack when necessary with efficiency, effectiveness and safety, covering the continuum from empty-hand fighting all the way to firearms. I had an opportunity to train with Mr. Franco personally, and the man is an authority. He has the personal experience, discipline and expertise to back up what he says in print. If he says it works, it's because he has made it work, and he's taught other people to make it work for them too. An excellent work by an excellent author. Read his other books as well. You won't be disappointed. (Qualifying note: Street Lethal, Franco's first book, is a bit dated. It's very helpful if you want to see the development of Franco's fighting system, but otherwise, it's missable.)
The Definitive Beginning To Your Self-Defense Path 6 mai 2009
Par Damien V. Cross - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Look, it's like this. You can go anywhere and spend literally hundreds on self-defense material that will sell you empty promises of turning you into a stone-cold killer assassin overnight. You're more than welcome to spend your money there if you believe that but, before you do, hear me out on this one.

Sammy Franco doesn't make those promises. He doesn't need to. Contained within this book is the key to opening the door to your new lifestyle, should you choose to accept it and you have what it takes.

Once you open this book, Sammy Franco takes you through the harsh reality that no other self-defense instructor will. Sammy Franco cuts through the dogmatic nonsense that most traditional martial arts offers you.

So, let's sum up. You can spend hundreds of dollars on overhyped DVDs, McDojos and "certified" instructors who probably bought their certifications and only studied it from an academic perspective. That's definitely your option but, you can spend less and get far more valuable information from this book. As desperation grows in this country, this book is truly EVERYONE's guide to self-defense.

Bottom Line: Ditch the charlatans and snag a copy of When Seconds Count NOW!!!
