    Just rec’d your book which offers the 132 session training schedule.
    Don’t see it on the website. How do I access it?

      Hi Jim,

      At the end of the book it should tell you where to find the bonuses. If you can’t find it please let me know which book you are talking about and I’ll sort out the problem asap.

    Hi. Yeah, similar to Jim, I just purchased “How to win a street fight “. At the end of the book, it promises free books from SurviveTravel. But the links do not take me to where they are available for free. Can you help?

      Sorry about this. The link in that book is old, but you can still register for the free books. Just go to any post (such as this one) and scroll down the page until you see the registration form in the sidebar.
