Show No Fear - A Bouncer's Diary
Buy from Amazon
Available on Kindle
In this eye-opener of a book, the author records the 'more unusual and violent incidents' in his career as a bouncer. It may shock you to realise exactly the risks that bouncers take on the doors of night clubs and pubs, and even at private functions. If the bouncer is to 'show no fear', he must build up strong mental and physical toughness through disciplined training.
Combat Magazine - Book Review
The author gets plenty of opportunities to try out the techniques he learns in the gym, whether it's a stranglehold or a right hook. If you have a run-in with some 'weekend warriors', words are simply not enough to deal with it.
But this is not a disheartening story of mindless aggression. Some incidents are really funny, and the author's colourful language and wry humour help soften the blows when they come. Read this book, and next time you'll spare a thought for the bouncer who takes the crap so you don't have to.
This is a result of a diary, a book that delves into the murky world of the bouncer from Bill's personal perspective. Bill worked the door for four years and the book collects some of the more 'colourful' incidents during that period...
If you like Geoff Thompson's earlier biographical work, then this is right up your street, full of vivid encounters, unsavoury characters and ripe language, told in a personable manner with a measure of wit...
Show No Fear makes all the right noises and is a fast-paced compact read. To put it bluntly, if you like this sort of thing Carson's book will be the dog's b****cks!...
Reviews for Show No Fear
A 5 Star Review from Amazon.com
"Movies such as Patrick Swayze's "Roadhouse," and Chow Yun Fat's "Full Contact" are romanticised, action oriented thrillers featuring elite bouncers. Carson's book is the "reality" version, and is a fascinating journey into the often dangerous and unforgiving world of an "old-world" bouncer.
