This book on executive protection tells how to live, work, and travel safely in this dangerous world. It provides top tips for users and providers of personal protection, a life-saving service that helps protectees work and play with peace of mind. The author describes a smart, sensible approach to protecting businesspeople, prominent families, wealthy persons, celebrities, and others whose life styles make them a target.
The book is highly recommended by business executives, politicians, military officers, security specialists, diplomats, and law enforcement executives around the world.
The Art of Executive Protection employs the doctrines of Sun Tzu, the ancient Chinese military strategist who taught that one must plan secretly, move surreptitiously, and foil the enemy's intentions to win the day without shedding blood. That is the essence of executive protection (EP): avoiding conflict through intelligent, proactive thinking.
Learn an intelligent--and vital--framework for reducing the risks of kidnapping, workplace violence, hijacking, robbery, fire, injury, eavesdropping, automobile crashes, and other dangers.
Considering an EP career? Discover how to get started and succeed. Think you might need protection? Learn how to determine that need and how to avoid a "bodyguard" and find a professional EP specialist.

This book gets high marks for authoritativeness and relevance. Robert Oatman is a highly regarded leader in executive protection, and the importance of that field becomes more obvious every day. Gianni Versace and Princess Diana are not the only people who could have benefited from better protection. Business travelers, people who are relatively well-off financially, and people who are recognizable to potential wrongdoers . . . all can gain from learning about the advantages of executive protection. Anyone considering a career in providing executive protection should also read the book.From the Author:
With this book, I hope to help protectees stay alive and well. I also hope to help current and prospective executive protection specialists gain a view into the right way to provide protection. It's important to note that this book isn't about burly "bodyguards" who spin their tires and knock people over. Instead, it's about well-trained, professional protection specialists and their intelligent use of threat assessment, intelligence gathering, transportation, choreography, advance work, 10-minute medicine, resources, technology, and support.
