Summary

Since its original publication in 1998, Introduction to Executive Protection has been considered the bible of the executive security industry. Now in its fourth edition, this new volume, conceived and developed by Dale L. June, drawing from his experiences in the United States Secret Service, law enforcement, and the private sector, has been reworked and revised with new content, sections, and input with over 60 percent new material.

Much more than simply an introduction, this audiobook is a powerful learning tool, with the author now joined by Elijah Shaw, one of the foremost experts in working globally with celebrities and other high net-worth VIP’s. The authors include real world examples of bodyguards working with politicians and religious figures, and dealing with everything from stalking to assassination attempts. This volume further digs into the tactics and the mindset necessary for protectors to mitigate the risk of it happening to their clients.

Packed with tips for successfully navigating the corporate, celebrity, and dignitary sectors, the listener will find in-depth discussions on a variety of topics, ranging from setting up estate security plans, to working in and around private jets. The world is changing daily, and as both an educational and resource tool, this audiobook is sure to provide new outlooks for both the experienced and the newcomer alike.

Must-have for anyone in and around EP

Elijah Shaw's and Dale June's "Introduction to Executive Protection" truly is a must have for anyone in the Executive Protection industry and those dealing with protectors. I am in the Entertainment Industry and I deal with protectors all the time. I call myself "EP-adjacent". The book helps me understand the important things and makes me more aware. I also own the paperback version, but having it as an audiobook now is amazing, I can listen to it while traveling or when I have a little bit of downtime.
It is easy to follow with so much valuable information. I am a true believer in learning as much as possible about the responsibilities of those with whom I work on a regular basis. Makes me a better manager and helps me make life as easy as possible for the protectors around me and as safe as possible for my clients.

Another standard for the industry

Take a road trip and let this play throughout. It's well worth it. This book will answer all of the questions of anyone looking to break into the industry and a great refresher for those seasonal agents. Learning just got easier.

The Greatest Levels Of Knowledge

After listening to the authors first book on Celebrity Protection, I knew I had to listen to this one. The details and knowledge shared here were phenomenal. Whether you are not in this industry, or have been in it for decades, these words are extremely valuable. The authors wealth of knowledge and experience play out very well. The audio option provides an easy way to listen. I am looking forward to what is next from these two.

Excellent Resource for the Real EP Industry

Very comprehensive and abundantly insightful. The author offers his many years of experience driven insight, as well as an objective point of view to supplement the EP realities in todays industry. He brings many important considerations to mind, particularly the chptrs on contracts, protection positions/protocols, etc.. The book translates very well to audio and Mr. June has definitely wrote the book on EP. Elijah Shaw also never disappoints with his inputs on celebrity protection and EP skillsets/mindsets. Highly recommend.
