Written in plain, no-nonsense terms,
Bodyguard Principles is a "must-have",
December 9, 2006
Investigations - Personal / Executive Protection - Security - Training
In an industry saturated with amateurs, wannabes and self serving, egocentric pretenders, it is indeed refreshing when through the piles of "bullshit" ( or "@$%&#?" for the politically correct ) a bright beacon of empirical knowledge emerges. Such is the case of the recently published "Bodyguard Principles", by a life long practitioner, Frank Sciacca Jr.
Mr. Sciacca has compiled in a comprehensive straight forward, matter of fact, manner the quintessential guide targeting the layman, professional and client alike. He has obviously been there, done it and lost the t-shirt. Twice ... I’d cover his "six" any day.
Bodyguard Principles will be easily identifiable by the "dog eared" appearance of it’s well worn pages. It is a must have for any personal protection professional.

If you are new to the field of Executive Protection/bodyguard, you will find a wealth of knowledge in this manual. For those who believe that being a large, strong, well armed martial artist will automatically qualify you for the position of professional bodyguard, you may find that the incredible amount of preparation necessary to be successful may discourage you. However, if you follow the advice given by this experienced practitioner, you will be better prepared to protect your client. You will also find that by using some of these tactics, you will most likely avoid many problems rather than have to respond to them. The difference between a professional and an amateur will be found in these pages. You will not be able to read this manual straight through, but you will find yourself using this as a reference tool for years to come. Frank speaks from experience, not theory or fantasy.

“I’ve known Frank Sciacca for many years and had the pleasure of assisting him many times with security and investigations assignments throughout the world. There are no words to express who he is or the type of professional he represent. What I could say is, I never met a person with so much dedication and knowledge and I would follow this man to the end of the earth. If anyone knows Frank, I guarantee they would feel and say the same thing. Congratulations on your book. It’s about time you written it.

I have had the pleasure of dealing with Frank for a little over a year now. He is a extremely friendly person that is very easy to deal with and has a vast knowledge of the industries in which he works. He provides services to our community that are considered invaluable by the customers he works with. He holds ethics and customer confidentiality to the highest standards. If I ever was in the need for security service, I know without a doubt where I would turn.

I purchased your book out of curiosity based on the information I read about on-line and in Security Management. I seen books come and go with every author trying to express their way is the only way. To be honest, I figured the cost of purchasing the book would be the same if I paid for a night at the movies.
After reading your book, I found myself realizing you didn’t brag about who you protected or make certain claims. From what I read and learned from the book is why I contacted you and asked you to sign my copy. Thank you very much and thank you for making me more aware of things. It makes my job easier. I recommended the book to everyone I know in the field of security in general.
