Life is neither easy nor fair. In fact, it can be a downright battle at times. What better way to prepare for life's battles than with a warrior's attitude-stoic during hardship, patient through pain, diligent in duties, disciplined, motivated, and grateful for all things. For a great deal of your life will depend upon what type of person you choose to be. Your attitude can transform adversity into adventure and tragedy into a turning point. In Do Good and Fear No Man, David W. Pinion brings together insightful life lessons gleaned from over twenty years of service in the US Marines. The biblically based discussions are applicable to every aspect of life and are not specific to only the military. They serve as a primer of guiding principles that can help determine which, if any, course corrections may help along your life's journey.

"I am still waiting for my father to talk to me about sex and success, money and marriage, religion and raising kids. Since he died in 1991, I guess I don't have much chance of ever benefiting from all the lessons he learned in life. It's not that he was a bad dad; he was just a quiet one." The opening lines of Wisdom of Our Fathers describes a regret that grew into this blessing of a book. Joe Kita's sense that he had missed a chance to learn from his father led him to a journey through the hearts of other men with some mileage on them. He talked to bartenders and doctors and salesmen, professors and farmers and teachers, lawyers and pastors, a 70-year-old who held the senior record for the 100-meter run, even a 93-year-old who had gone to Antarctica with Admiral Byrd. His questions were basic: What's the key to happiness? How do you find God? When should you marry? What's the one thing in life you shouldn't miss? What matters? Their answers were straight from the heart. Wisdom of Our Fathers makes a joyful, manly sound, gathering the lessons these men learned, through blunder and success, at war and at home, through love, loss, and just plain keeping on. A book of reminiscence and inspiration, it's a story of perspective and passion, a harvest of lives deeply lived.

Smedley Butler's life and career epitomize the contradictory nature of American military policy through the first part of this century. Butler won renown as a Marine battlefield hero, campaigning in most of America's foreign military expeditions from 1898 to the late 1920s. He became the leading national advocate for paramilitary police reform. Upon his retirement, however, he renounced war and imperialism and devoted his energy and prestige to various dissident and leftist political causes.

"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. "Left of Bang offers a crisp lesson in survival in which Van Horne and Riley affirm a compelling truth: It's better to detect sinister intentions early than respond to violent actions late. Left of Bang helps readers avoid the bang." —Gavin de Becker, bestselling author of The Gift of Fear "Rare is the book that is immediately practical and interesting. Left of Bang accomplishes this from start to finish. There is something here for everyone in the people business and we are all in the people business." —Joe Navarro, bestselling author of What Every BODY is Saying. "Left of Bang is a highly important and innovative book that offers a substantial contribution to answering the challenge of Fourth Generation war (4GW)." —William S. Lind, author of Maneuver Warfare Handbook "Like Sun Tzu's The Art of War, Left of Bang isn't just for the military. It's a must read for anyone who has ever had a gut feeling that something's not quite right...be it walking down the street, sitting in a corporate boardroom, or even entering an empty home." --Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of The Lion's Gate, The Warrior Ethos and Gates of Fire “An amazing book! Applying the lessons learned during the longest war in American history, and building on seminal works like The Gift of Fear and On Combat, this book provides a framework of knowledge that will bring military, law enforcement, and individual citizens to new levels of survival mindset and performance in life-and-death situations. Left of Bang is an instant classic.” --Lt. Colonel Dave Grossman, U.S. Army Ret., author of On Combat and On Killing -- You walk into a restaurant and get an immediate sense that you should leave. -- You are about to step onto an elevator with a stranger and something stops you. -- You interview a potential new employee who has the resume to do the job, but something tells you 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.
