Book Review: Mass Killers: How you Can Identify, Workplace, School, or Public Killers Before They Strike

I bought this book in December of 2013. I think started to read it, and lost interest / had other things come up. I recently picked this book up to read not that long ago, and went through it. Mike Roche, did a good job of breaking the book up in to parts. He uses his history in Law Enforcement to cover Mass Shootings, the signs, and how HR / Senior Leadership should handle the events leading up to a shooting.

Two book reviews on Personal Security.

Two books I read on personal safety recently were “Alone and Afraid” by J.J. Luna (also known for “How to Be Invisible“) and “Escaping the O Zone” by Doug Cummings.

I reviewed both of these books on Amazon. I have “Alone and Afraid” 5 stars, and “Escaping the O Zone” 4 stars.

Crime Profiling Project

Book Review: Infiltration Presents: Access All Areas

I’ve finally finished “Infiltration Presents: Access All Areas – A User’s Guide to the Art of Urban Exploration” by Ninjalicious. This is one of a handful of books I have on Physical Security, and it’s taken me a couple of years to read it, because it kept getting lost in moves, and forgotten about when I when class loads got heavy.

I like this book, because it’s about accessing the area’s that are normally off limit to the public. It talks about Social Engineering, the equipment you’ll need (hint leave the lock picks at home), but most importantly HOW to find the places to explorer, and how to by-pass the systems put in place. Nice alarm there, shame you disconnected it due to all the false rings.

If you have an interest in the physical side, or an interest in historical building and abandoned things, this is a decent read.
