Looking Forward to Being Attacked

Fun with Crime

Looking Forward to Being Attacked

Submitter: Talk about putting a positive light on something bad, Looking Forward to Being Attacked was written by Lt. Jim Bullard from the Memphis Police Department. It was published in 1977. I included the table of contents to demonstrate how Lt. Bullard just oozes optimism.

Holly: Looks like a great book with a weird approach and title. No one looks forward to being attacked, even if they are a master at self-defense. Oh, I get it! He is being clever. This was re-released in 1987. With cell phones and car alarms, I think self-defense books in public libraries should be more up to date than this. Please weed!

What to do About your Brain-Injured Child

What you should do is get a newer book.  This was submitted to ALB from 3 different people and I found a copy locally.  This is such a serious subject and I cannot believe that it is still on the shelves in quite a few public  libraries. Brain injuries and other areas of neuroscience have had quite a bit of progress since this book was published.  Is it me or is the ultra “cheerful” colors and graphics a bit odd?  This one is a slam dunk, folks.  Weed it please!
