Dodging Bullets A Strategic Guide to World-class Protection

Dodging Bullets
A Strategic Guide to World-class Protection

By Thomas A. Taylor


Protection - the duty of the bodyguard. A bad day on the job could result in bloodshed. Whether protecting a President or a celebrity, the bodyguard is only successful when his or her protectee is safe.

In this revised edition of Dodging Bullets - A Strategic Guide to World-Class Protection, Thomas Taylor outlines the standards for anyone involved in the protection industry. Throughout the book, he uses examples of both successful and failed assassination attempts to demonstrate what a bodyguard should and should not do. You will be amazed at how the slightest missed detail by a bodyguard can result in injury or death.

Mr. Taylor uses historical facts as well as numerous proverbs, versus and ancient quotes to illustrate how a bodyguard can achieve a world-class level of protection. He stresses the importance of how being prepared, remaining professional and keeping one's distance from the protectee -- while still remaining within arm's reach -- is the only way to be truly effective. 

This book is a must read for anyone who is part of the protection industry, including Secret Service agents, police officers assigned to a mayor or other dignitary or private sector bodyguards assigned to a celebrity or CEO. 

Dodging Bullets - A Strategic Guide to World-Class Protection includes the following chapters:

  • Soak Up Six for the Boss
  • Politics vs. Protection
  • Peril of the Profession
  • Protective Protocols
  • Deadly Predictions
  • Bodyguard of Lies
  • The Readiness Is All
  • Know the Enemy
  • Anatomy of an Ambush
  • The Suddenly Scenario
The author also includes a glossary of terms, a selected bibliography and a listing of ancient quotes that still apply to modern day protective operations as well as a listing of "Key Points to Consider in Achieving World-Class Protection."

Thomas Taylor is a 30-year veteran of the Missouri State Highway Patrol. He has served on the protective details for four governors and has worked closely with the Secret Service agents for Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush and Clinton. His assignments have also included protective operations for the Pope, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher and Henry Kissinger. He was twice elected President of the National Governor's Security Association by the detail leaders for every governor in America.
