The New Bodyguard
By Kevin Horak
It has been a pleasure to read and review this book, which is a fantastic read, whether it is for newcomers to the industry when swatting up prior to attending a CP course or whether it’s being used as an aide memoire to refresh the minds of the old and bold amongst us. Either way it is an invaluable resource.
Kevin comes across extremely knowledgeable in his writing and puts his points across very well speaking with honesty and drawing from experience.
The book flows in a logical sequence starting by describing the role of a CPO as well as listing and explaining the desirable qualities for a CPO before moving onto the nitty gritty and talking about the job at hand, which is broken down into relevant task/role related sections.
It is especially helpful for newbie’s setting out on a new career path, as not only does it teach you about what is expected whilst carrying out the role of a CPO, but it also gives advice on being self-employed, which is something which can come as quite a shock to many as soon as you step away from that regular income and comfort of a regular wage.
The quality and presentation of the book is first class and it has a substantial feel to it. From me the book comes highly recommended as I feel it is an excellent resource for people working within the sector as well as being great value for money.
