One reader of MDTS: Monadnock defensive tactics system said, “Being in the public safety business for over 5 years, I found this book extremely valuable in providing my staff with a quick, easy to learn, and most importantly, practical approach to controlling non co-operative subjects.”

According to the book description of Never Trust a Politician: A Critical Review of Politics and Politicians, “Here is a book the average citizen will love and the politicians of all the major parties will probably hate. This is a book that gives equal criticism to democrats, liberals, far left liberals, republicans, conservatives, far right conservatives and libertarians. Some of the material covered in this book include: The inherent evil of politics; the arrogance of power; why you should never trust a politician who always seeks to raise your taxes, who constantly uses religion or God in their speeches, who does not fully support the second amendment and the right to self-defense. Other questions explored in this book include: What is wrong with the democratic party? What is wrong with the republican party? What is wrong with the libertarian party? This is a book for people who are tired of being lied to and conned by politicians who enjoy insulting your intelligence. This is a book for independent minded, thinking individuals who refuse to be led by the nose by any political party or radical political group.”

According to the book description Season of the Warrior: A Poetic Tribute to Warriors, This is a book for anyone who desires to understand the warrior's heart and soul. Those who practice, or has an interest in, Judo, Karate, Jujitsu, Aikido, Kenjutsu, Aikijujitsu, Police tactics, military or any other warrior combat systems, will find words of praise honoring Warriors with poetry. Those who are not involved in the Warrior Arts but who wish to understand the inner soul of The Warrior will also be enlightened by the poems and essays in this volume. Finally, this is the only book on poetry that focuses completely on honoring Warriors and the vital role they play in the history of human kind.”
