Although there seem to be plenty of reasons to become fearful these days, being prepared for certain unwanted situations can help any individual feel more in control. John Geddes and Alun Rees do an excellent job of providing the reader with strategies to survive active-shooter events in their recently released “Be A Hero” (www.skyhorsepublishing.com).

The topics covered may not be pleasant to think about, but offer lifesaving information on how to fight back, escape and evade, tone down disabling fear and provide medical assistance to those in need. This is a must-read book that every member of the family can benefit from in the event the unthinkable happens  at school, at the mall or in other public places.
