Violence Blunders and Fractured Jaws
Marc "Animal" MacYoung
This book isn't going to tell you how to bust heads or break jaws. What it will give you are street culture signs that will allow you to avoid a potential trip to the hospital.
A one-time denizen of the streets,
gives sage advice from his firsthand knowledge and keen
observations of "street culture." And that knowledge was
gained from too many years living on the "pointy end" as
thug, drug dealer, street person and later bouncer,
security provider and corrections facility director. He
also passes on tricks of the trade from other
professionals who deal with violence on a daily basis.

Warning: This book was written when MacYoung was "coming out of the street lifestyle ("the Life"); offensive language and an obvious display of "street attitude" are present. The book is not for all readers. But the concepts are important, despite language and presentation. This is the attitude a person will face "out there."

Comments about Blunders include:
I enjoyed this book a great deal, although by looking at a few of the other reviews it seems that not everyone was able to get something out of it . . . could this be due to the fact that there are no pictures or illustrations to look at??? If you have only limited experience dealing with the likes of: skells, goblins, crackheads, and wannabe gangstas, this book will open your eyes as to what might be going through their diseased brains. Likewise, if you happen to find yourself in a bar that happens to be frequented by: outlaw bikers, airborne rangers, or drunken cowboys, the tips on "ettiqutte" herein will greatly increase the likelihood that you'll be permitted to leave the premises with all of your teeth intact. True, this is NOT a "how to fight" book, but it IS in fact a "self-defense" manual, as the most important lesson of self-defense is AVOIDING the fight in the first place!!! Unfortunately, most [people] know nothing of this, having been brought up with the "John Wayne" macho mentallity. Add some alcohol to the equation and . . . "HEY!!! Are you lookin' at ME??? Maybe you wanna TAKE IT OUTSIDE???" You get the picture. Violence is not "happy fun time," children, regardless of what you might've seen on TV. If you get in a fight, there will be the following things to take into consideration: broken knuckles, busted nose, blood all over your expensive shirt, tearing up your fancy shoes on the goblin's incisors, hospital bills, court, jail time, your name in the newspaper, and the goblin's brothers coming lookin' for you. Take it from someone who's been there . . . after you've been in a few fights, it stops being fun anymore. Animal's book has a lot of good advice so that his readers don't have to learn these lessons the hard way. -- Tyr Shadowblade, Virginia Beach, Virginia
