The usual American "bubblegum for the mind". The first half of the book is about how the author went to school, what her family was like, how she became an agent. Then about the difficulties of service: a lot of running and push-ups - hard, standing outside in the winter at the guard - cold. Then practical skills: "sort yourself out", "understand your fears" and so on. Practical usefulness - zero. All these alleged recommendations can be found on the Internet for 5 minutes. This is a typical American book of...
This book will be interesting to young readers.I am an older person, I was not impressed with it at all.It will not teach you to find mental armor and live without fear.For this money I could have bought a more interesting book.
This book is so good that I won't even spoil its contents for you. Just open and read the introduction and you will see for yourself how much you needed it. Let me just say that the author, a former Secret Service agent, is a woman of incredible strength and courage; we would say that "she knows no fear." But in fact-and she admits this right off the bat-even she can be afraid of something. It's just that the author, unlike most, knows how to work with these fears and wants to teach readers this...
Absolute average about nothing. Lots of water, nothing specific, helpful, standard advice for everyone. Starting 1/3 of the way through the pages.
This book will grab you from the first words, from the very prologue. And I assure you - you won't be able to tear yourself away from it anymore! Evi Pumpuras reveals to us the world of intelligence work, which employs people just like us. Only they know how to deal with their fears and stresses and know how to remain seemingly invulnerable, read people well and be fearless when needed.
The book is strong, impressing the reader from the beginning, without too much water and lengthy digressions, which will be instructive for everyone without exception. It is definitely worth the money, because the advice in it is realistic and universal for any situation in our lives.
Highly recommended reading!
Fear is natural, the author reminds us of this many times and teaches us how to live with it, overcome it, cope with it and not let it take over. This is a strong book with lots of examples from the life of the author, Evie Poumpouras, a Secret Service Special Agent. I read with great interest, every situation is dealt with in such detail... Impressive book, I am very glad it came to me.

It's just that the author, unlike most, knows how to deal with those fears and wants to teach readers that skill. This book really changed the way I look at the world, something no other nonfiction book has done.
The author has a lot of experience (and a little bit of a flair for self promotion) and he knows how to write a good book. He also has a wealth of knowledge about safety issues and he's written a very useful book. I've worked in corrections and in the emergency room so I'm pretty familiar with safety issues but she added a couple of things I didn't consider. A good read. Worth the money!
On the day of release I bought the Kindle version, so I didn't need to wait for the mailman. When I read through the prologue, I returned to Amazon to purchase a hardcopy, but it was sold-out. Boom! I have no choice but to say it's sold-out for a reason! Ms. Poumpouras' book is very well researched, extremely informative and packed with exciting stories from behind the scene. I wish it had a little more stories at some points, though. I underlined a lot of paragraphs and learned even more. Must read!!
