If you have any interest in saving kids' lives, you need this book. It's not a regurgitation of the "hide-run-fight" mantra, but a deeper study of what humans do in chaotic, unpredictable emergencies, and how to apply those lessons. We say that, 'An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.' In real life that means it is cheaper, easier, and more effective to spot troubled students than to spend millions on "security bling" that we already know doesn't work. Better to cultivate a principles-based flexible attitude than memorize a dozen rigid, impossibly specific responses that only work in the unlikely event that your chaos matches a previous chaos. David Perrodin gives you a way to think about the problem and an insight into how the humans you deal with are probably going to handle it anyway, so you can work with nature instead of trying to script the unpredictable.--Rory Miller, author, "Meditations on Violence"
