Left of Bang

“At a time when we must adapt to the changing character of conflict, this is a serious book on a serious issue that can give us the edge we need.” — General James Mattis, USMC, Ret.

* A security professional walks into a restaurant and get an immediate sense that they should leave.

* A security professional is about to step onto an elevator with a stranger and something stops them.

* A CEO interviews a potential new employee who has the resume to do the job, but something tells them not to offer a 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 to not just 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.
