Show No Fear Redux a Bouncers Diary is basically an autobiography of the authors own accounts of his time as a bouncer.
I have to say there is a lot more to being a bouncer than I first thought, at least to be a good one anyway. The author walks us through his teenage years when he was first introduced to karate and starting his bouncer career.
What follows is an array of true stories of situations that the author and his work colleagues faced on a normal nights work.
There are quite a few humorous parts in this book as well as some sad. There are quite a few people that the author worked with through his career that I would love to have met as they certainly stood out to me. Particularly one certain lady that sounded like a lot of fun who ran one of the places that he worked for.
Overall this is a great book that gives us readers an insight into the life of a bouncer and certainly makes for an interesting read. Don’t be expecting lots of blood and fights as you will be sorely disappointed, even though there is some in there that is only a small part of the story. This book will show you that there’s a lot more thinking actually goes on than just lashing out and hitting people, I certainly think it will surprise some readers.
Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have awarded this book 4/5 stars.
