With that said, I still believe there is much value in this book and DVD. The concepts the author describes that went into the development of his system are important, and all those learning or teaching self-defense like Alphanation Combat Shooter Review. should be analyzing these same things, and the insights that Isler presents in this book and DVD are good, and worth considering, regardless of the style you practice.
The book begins with two short forward by Stephen K. Hayes, one of Isler's instructors, and LTC Michael Layrisson of the U.S. Army. Chapter 1 contains a few pages on the journey to creation of the system, giving some of Isler's motives for creating BPC. The second chapter, Lessons From the Past, compares ancient samurai to modern combatants. I thought it was an interesting comparison. Chapter 3, BPC Philosophy, describes what the system is in about two pages. The fourth chapter, focuses of BPC Training describes things such as escalation of force, degradation of proximities and capabilities, operational creation based on operational realism, and continued evolution
In business communication, you'd better be a straight shooter. I'm not talking about shooting a gun. (That is not an approved communication technique.) I'm talking about the leadership skill of being a straight shooter - telling it like it is, not glossing over the truth, letting staff in on what they need to know win a timely manner.
