    The Golden Thread is a great read on the basics of self defense. The book does not illustrate canned responses and techniques. Rather, it cuts to the heart of what self defense is and how to approach training for self defense. The Golden Thread provides an easy-to-read and down-to-earth overview of the fundamental concepts of self defense and self defense training.

    The Golden Thread is interesting, straight to the point, and encouraging. Mr. Joyce’s understanding of both the external and the internal is very accurate and deals with the nature of human behavior. The chapter “No Fear” really hit home as it goes into detail about the naturalness of being afraid, but keeping the emotions under control.
