From Amazon: The book is highly recommended by business executives, politicians, military officers, security specialists, diplomats, and law enforcement executives around the world. The Art of Executive Protection employs the doctrines of Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese military strategist who taught that one must plan secretly, move surreptitiously, and foil the enemy’s intentions to win the day without shedding blood. That is the essence of executive protection (EP): avoiding conflict through intelligent, proactive thinking.
The author Robert L. Oatman writes a very “real world” book–He takes the “hollywood” out and keeps it very grounded. He also teaches an excellent course on Executive Protection that I have attended.
