In today’s modern world, we are largely isolated from the kind of savagery our ancestors faced on a daily basis. Although violence was as natural to our evolutionary development as sex and food, it has become foreign to most of us: at once demonised and glamorised, but almost always misunderstood. Matt Thornton tells the story of this vulnerability and provides the average person with the knowledge they need to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of violence – and to survive a violent encounter. Based on his decades of experience teaching everyday people how to defend themselves and on a rational approach to the scientific data, Matt offers clear lessons for people of all ages and abilities. It is designed to empower those who’ve been affected by violence, or are concerned that they or their loved ones could be – in short, to help good people become more dangerous to bad people.
