Publisher's Summary

You walk into a restaurant and get an immediate sense that you should leave. You are about to step onto an elevator with a stranger, and something stops you. You interview a potential new employee who has the résumé to do the job, but something tells you not to offer the position. These scenarios all represent "left of bang", the moments before something bad happens. But how many times have you talked yourself out of leaving the restaurant, getting off the elevator, or getting over your silly "gut" feeling about someone? Is there a way not just to listen to your inner protector more but to actually increase your sensitivity to threats before they happen?
Legendary marine general James Mattis asked the same question and issued a directive to operationalize the Marine Corps' Combat Hunter program. A comprehensive and no-nonsense approach to heightening each and every one of our gifts of fear, Left of Bang is the result.

Easier to follow when read

What does Danny Campbell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Danny Campbell is an excellent narrator. I've listened to several other books he has narrated and I'm always impressed.

Any additional comments?

First let me say this, I've read and marked up both my physical copy and e-book of Left of Bang. In addition, I've completed the fantastic Basic and Advanced training course for the program. I decided to also grab the audiobook so that I could further my learning and listen to the concepts again and again as I drive. However, while listening to the audio I found it hard to follow along and stay engaged.

The main issue I have with the audio version is that the content of the book doesn't lend itself well to an audio format, through no fault of the highly skilled authors, or the talented narrator. The content is so rich, and requires such careful study, that simply listening to the audiobook leaves the listener with the sense they've missed something valuable.

That being said, do study this book, learn from it, apply the skills to enhance your safety.
