Book Reviews of Waking the Tiger Within: How to Be Safe from Crime on the Street, at Home, on Trips,
at Work, and at School with New Fighting Terrorism Chapter
Book Review: A must read for everyone!
Rating: 5 stars Scott Flint is an accomplished martial artist and self defense trainer. In this
book he will teach you ways to increase your awareness, methods to develop your instinctual fighting ability and techniques
to keep you safe wherever you go.
This is not a book for the faint of heart or weak of stomach. Scott goes right for the jugular, and
pulls no punches with the techniques shown. His style is very much 'in your face' and up close and personal. As he puts it
'you must become your assailant's worst nightmare ' if you are to survive'
As a full time self defense trainer and part time law enforcement officer, I am constantly amazed by
recommendations made by well-intentioned people that you should 'give in ' to the attacker and just do whatever he says. My
experience and research has shown that the individuals who are mentally aware, properly trained and are willing to fight back
are the survivors. This book clearly shows how to do all three.
The good news is that statistics show that the people that are the most prepared to defend themselves
are the most likely not to get attacked. Although most attackers are dumb, they are not stupid. Just as the tiger looks for
the weakest animal in the herd, the predator looks for signs of weakness when choosing a victim. Just the mere act of preparing
yourself may be enough to keep you safe.
Waking the Tiger Within is easy to follow and understand and should be considered a must-read for anyone
interested in defending themselves and their loved ones from violent attacks.
Book Review: A MUST READ BOOK FOR ALL!
Rating: 5 stars Just wanted to let you know that I have read this book and it is great!! It is
the best material I have ever encountered that deals with self-defense. It is full of useful tips and ideas to keep you and
your loved ones safe. This book should be required reading for everyone. If you are contemplating buying this book, go ahead.
You will not be sorry you did. Good job, Scott!
Book Review: Waking the Tiger Within by Scott Flint: A MUST Read!
Rating: 5 stars What a GREAT book! For those like myself and my wife, who have long ago eclipsed
Jack Benny's 39 years, and who are also handicapped, staying safe in a violent world is not easy. Martial arts? Try them with
Degenerative Joint Disease. We knew there had to be a better, easier way for those of us long past our prime "fighting years".
As a volunteer personal safety instructor, I read, watch videos and attend as many seminars and programs as possible, always
looking for ways to keep ourselves, and others, safe.
"Waking the Tiger Within" by Scott Flint has to be one of the best sources of staying safe to come along
in some time. The book covers not only the number one ingredient of safety, ie awareness, but guides the reader into developing
"Your natural built-in instinct to survive". His chapter, "Stop Button" is exactly what we have searched for: ending "an attack
in one second." (No gun, pepper spray or Black Belt needed.) Worth the price of the book by itself.
Got kids or grandchildren? Worried about bullies? His chapters on these subjects are excellent.
Road Rage? Car-Jacking? (What would YOU do, if locked in the trunk of your car by an assailant?)
Many of the areas Scott writes about are covered in the seminars I present, but this book opens up a host
of new, and surprisingly simple, techniques that almost anyone, at any age, in any state of health, can grasp and use.
Chapter One begins with these words: "No one ever has the right to hurt you." When you have finished reading
and following the simple advice presented in these pages, you will be a long way toward the realization of that goal.
Buy this book for yourself and give copies to those you love.

Rating: 5 stars "What a great book! Just finished the first reading last night. I am an NRA Certified
Instructor in the Refuse To Be A Victim(r) Program, and of course many of the things mentioned are included in our seminars.
A number of other items brought up will be finding their way into future seminars I'll be conducting. Thanks for a super job."
