Survive the Unthinkable

Self defense expert and former Navy Seal Tim Larkin presents a complete guide to uniue self protection methodology for the everyday person in any situationApproximately 19 million women are physically assaulted annually in the United States alone In Think Like a Predator Tim Larkin shows women that surviving an attack is not about being physically bigger faster or stronger it's about knowing how to self protect not self defendThink Like I had high hopes for this book I help teach a self defense seminar for women several times a year I think the author is spot on in his approach particularly about not using a martial artist mind set I felt that his separation of what constitutes asocial and antisocial violence was brilliant My only frustration was that he talked for a couple hundred pages about the vulnerable aspects of the human anatomy without actually listing which areas to strike He only explicitly discussed the chop to the neck and kick to the groin I know that this book is something of a primer on the subject but even a uick bullet list of areas with associated strikes would have been helpful All and all a mixed review on this book

    For starters this book is a “total guide” for women written by a man Which wouldn’t be so bad if it didn’t come across so patronizing You can do it even if you are smaller and weaker Size doesn’t matter And while I do think that anyone can do great harm to anyone else the fact of the matter is that size training muscle mass fitness level those things do count It’s going to be a lot harder to overcome someone stronger and bigger than you If someone reads this book and has no other training they’re going to be in for a rude awakening when they actually encounter an attackerBut not just any training The only self defense training that will actually work is the author’s That’s sarcasm folks His disdain for any self defense classes other than his own is mentioned several times in the book It seems like a big reason that he wrote this book was to promote his own classes just read the back about the authorThe format of the book reads like a college essay paper First I’ll teach you this then in the next section you’ll learn about this Definitely not the formatting I expected from a New York Times BestsellerThe only practical defense strategies he talks about in any detail is a strike to the throat and a knee to the groin From a martial arts perspective I was definitely underwhelmedHe did talk about asocial behavior and did a good job portraying that So the whole book wasn’t a total wasteHe talks about how women are very likely to be assaulted The book starts off with all the scary statistics But then he jumps right into asocial attackers and makes it sound like that’s the bad guy you’ll be facing The reality is that most of the time it’ll be someone that you know that assaults you Tony Robbins mentions that in the forward but Larkin never really addresses it So if you want to learn about self defense take a class instead In a high adrenaline situation your body will do what you have physically practiced If you want a better understanding on the mental side of self defense read The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker The Unthinkable by Amanda Ripley will also give you great insights on how to better respond to life or death situations If you find yourself getting into those toxic relationships over and over again read Men That Hate Women and the Women That Love Them by Dr Susan ForwardAs for this book I’m sorry to say that I can’t recommend it

    Every woman should read this book As a female and a martial arts instructor I am always looking for ideas information to help me evaluate improve the content of my own women's self defense classes Survive the Unthinkable has provided me with a very valuable new framework for thinking about violent encounters I was also pleased that many of the things I already teach were echoed in his book for example your best weapon is your brainTim Larkin gets it He demonstrates a nuanced understanding of what women face the situations they are likely to encounter as well as the concerns that many women have when it comes to self protection He knows how to coach you through these concerns and his advice is to the point simple and something you can immediately start using as you go about your daily routine Not only that but his writing conveys his belief in your ability He very clearly demonstrates that sizestrengthfitness are not the most important factors in self protectionHonestly if you are male female or otherwise you will be able to read this book and feel empowered I wish self defense instructors taught along these lines Excellent stuff

    I had high hopes for this book I help teach a self defense seminar for women several times a year I think the author is spot on in his approach particularly about not using a martial artist mind set I felt that his separation of what constitutes asocial and antisocial violence was brilliant My only frustration was that he talked for a couple hundred pages about the vulnerable aspects of the human anatomy without actually listing which areas to strike He only explicitly discussed the chop to the neck and kick to the groin I know that this book is something of a primer on the subject but even a uick bullet list of areas with associated strikes would have been helpful All and all a mixed review on this book

    This is a great book to read if you are a woman who is on the fence about self defense It will help you overcome your worries about if it is appropriate As an instructional guide it is lacking in exact moves to make I suggest reading the book for background information on why it is so important to have the mindset of survival and then go take a class for hands on instruction

    A must read for every woman Self Protection even for pacifists

    This was an interesting book and different from the sort of thing I'd normally read Larkin spent the first half of the book motivating why you need to be willing to use extreme violence in life threatening situations He shows how to distinguish antisocial vs asocial behaviors and reminds us that asocial people are not playing by the same rules and societal constraints as the rest of us It reminded me a little of the Sociopath Next Door in the sense that we forget there are people living among us who will take advantage of us with no remorse The second half of the book gets into techniues for self defense There's good information in there but it does get pretty repetitive A bit editing and streamlining would have been nice along with illustrations of the various techniues he describes He mentions that there are at least 70 vulnerable areas on the body but mainly focuses on attacking the eyes groin and throat in various ways All in all I'd say the book is worth reading and gave some good insights on why and how to respond with violence should the unthinkable happen

    This book has some really good info for women Interesting info about what the research and psychology says about asocial predators too It's not a self defense book and it talks heavily about using violence with intent if you are being attacked I found it a little repetitive but admit I was sold on the idea of causing harm to someone who intends to hurt me before reading the book I believe the idea is to drive that home for women who feel uncomfortable and rightly so with the subject matter

    A very uick read Somewhat repetitive I was all ready familiar with much of what is contained in this book However reviewing techniues and practices for staying safe is never a bad idea Also the author does an excellent job distinguishing between antisocial and asocial behaviors He also provides some strong reflections on why many women have difficulty in dealing with behaviors outside of the norm Overall a good primer for personal safety


  10. says:

    Edit wordingInteresting Reaffirming Either I'm not a psycho or I'm as crazy as this guy isThere were some areas I felt that needed to be discussed a bit further based on the direction his advice was going but unfortunately he didn't venture into those areas So I'm left with hoping for the best and planning for the worstTowards the second half the book got really repetitive but I suppose to be fair it's the written euivalent of Mr Miyagi telling you to wax on and wax off all dayOverall it helped to instill some confidence in myself and I learned a few things along the way
