I read about this book from a newspaper website, so I have just bought this for a read (only read to page 22 at the moment) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Be-Hero-Essent ... =be+a+hero.

So far, a good and interesting read.

Very true is amuses me when people post what they would do in a similar situation, especially the macho responses.



I have to wholeheartedly agree with that tbh.

Unless you have trained and continue to train under real shock, fear and constant real intensive pressure you really have no idea at all how you would react.

And even if trained and regularly training for such things you are still likely to make mistakes and will lose access to your fine motor skills.

Not meant to flame in any way, just my take.

I'd grab the nearest torso sized child and use it as a human shield as I fled for my life. If the child survives, well, I'll be hailed a hero for rescuing it. If not well, I'll probably be hailed a hero for 'trying'. Said no Internet hero, ever.
