    Wandering into Waterstone's this past week (Christmas shopping - they shall read, godammit) I picked up E.W. Barton-Wright's book "The Sherlock Holmes school of Self Defence" subtitle 'The Manly Art of Bartitsu as used against Professor Moriarty".

    It's slim and Hardback and cost 6.99 published by Ivy Press on www.ivypress.co.uk. ISBN 978 1 907332 73 9.

    Highlights:
    - how to eject a troublesome man from a room
    - how to overcome a ruffian who attacks you with a knife
    - how to repel an assailant who positions himself in front of your bicycle.

    Bargain!

    Bah, humbug!

    It's a nicely designed book, but it's really just some excerpts from Barton-Wright's self defense articles (the original articles contained about 2-3 times as many techniques) and the article "Self Protection with a Cycle", which wasn't written by Barton-Wright.

    Ah, well - Merry Crimbo to you, too.

    Ok, I'll put the self protection section down as revision by Lance Armstrong.
