Default Tactical books? Or something like it.

Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

But i was interested in buying a tactical mindset type of book, if you want to call it that.

What i mean is just a book with information about what to look for when entering a room in a house or a restaurant or places like that about safety precautions and what type of people to look out for.

I am sorry if this is vague but i am having a tough time wording this.

For example. In the first Bourne movie when he enters the bar/restuarant he is completely aware of his surroundings and can tell who is left handed, who can hold their own in a scuffle.

Again, my apologies for this odd question but i feel that i should have general knowledge of this.

I dint need a book for that one. Real world experience has taught me what to look for and where to sit. I always face the door, and all people in the joint are in my vision range. Its a military thing I guess.

Makes sense.

I too always sit so i can see people when i am eating or whatever and i always seat myself in the back of the classroom so i can oversee everything.

SOrry if i was too vague but i cant word it correctly lol. Which is bad i suppose since i have done well in both of my english classes in college lol

For the most part, the kind of situational awareness you are seeking only comes with years of either getting your ass kicked, training or both.
