From the publisher: What do a CIA spy, FBI cyber-security expert, EMT, firefighter, thoracic surgeon, NYPD police chief, pastor, attorney, Secret Service psychologist, and a Special Forces Green Beret have in common? Two things: Like you, they all care about the safety and security of their families. And they all look to Bill Stanton for the practical, life-saving tips and advice that can help them prepare for the worst.
In Prepared Not Scared, author Bill Stanton has amassed more than 500 years of combined security experience and advice through his connections with world-class experts in criminology, psychology, military science, self-defense, technology, and emergency preparedness.
