    Not the best, not the worst

    Sadly, this book isn't as it seems really. It DOES explain the basic principles and concepts behind speed shooting but it DOES NOT deliver when it comes to teaching you how to really go about accomplishing that act. There is some very good information in this book though. While it fails sadly at its topic, it DOES help teach other things, mainly safe gun handling stances for stand downs and crossing others while still staying alert and tactical ready to fire. So, it's not the best book I've read not it's definitely not the worst either.
