Logic of Force
Once only available in hard-copy, this year 2012 title is now available for download at the JL store!

For four years, James LaFond conducted a study of violence in his hometown of Baltimore, Maryland. Following up on The Logic of Steel, his highly regarded look into the reality of edged-weapon attacks, LaFond now presents The Logic of Force, a study of assaults featuring blunt weapons and unarmed attacks.
The Logic of Force tells stories of people who were caught in these blunt-force attacks—victims, attackers, eyewitnesses, and Good Samaritans who bravely stepped in to break up the fights. Chronicled in the vernacular of the street, these stories are gritty, entertaining, and—most important for those interested in self-defense—educational. Violent men are painfully predictable, if we bother to pay attention. This study underscores the importance of tactical awareness—and the high cost exacted for not staying alert. Just in case you do end up in a dangerous situation, these accounts show you what will and will not work in a short, feral, winner-take-all brawl, as well as the disturbing range of blunt-force objects that can be used as improvised weapons to hurt you.
One of the most violent cities in the world, Baltimore can teach all of us valuable lessons about avoiding or surviving violence. The Logic of Force teaches you how to live peacefully among the predators on your street.

I never got an email. What's going on?
99% of our emails go through. Once in a while, someone's mail provider will block the content thinking it is spam (some of James' titles are buzz words for internet filters). If after a few minutes you haven't received anything, email us at <store@123jameslafond.com> and we will be glad to create a workaround. Give us 24 hours to answer that email. If the administrator doesn't return from his drunken stupor, you are lastly advised to give James a tap at his personal email (see bio). Long story short: Satisfaction Guaranteed.
When I click on my product link, nothing happens, or a tab opens/disappears. Help!
Occasionally your mail provider will refuse to pop-open email links from 'untrusted' sources. Two workarounds in Windows: [Right-Click] + [Save-Link-As] or you can try [Right-Click] + [Open-In-New-Tab]. If you are using a cellular device, try navigating to your Downloads directory and searching for the file there.
