Hiding in Plain Sight: My Life and Adventures Protecting Celebrities


Dear Readers:

I have a remarkably well-written and intriguing book to offer you as BOOK  OF THE DAY, Hiding in Plain Sight: My Life and Adventures Protecting Celebrities by Thomas LeBrun, and is a book you don't want to miss. As a bestselling author, award-winning screenwriter, and having worked in the film industry for more than 15 years, I feel confident I know what it is like to protecting celebrities. I was the production coordinator on several reality shows including Hugh Heffner's "Girl Next Door," and had to hire protection for them while we shot. Wow! Let me say that is no easy task. Also, having worked on "Strawdogs," with Alexander Skarsgard, Kate Bosworth, James Marsden, James Woods, and the newly awarded captain on Star Trek, Anson Mount. I found myself going out with them. The funny thing, Alexander Skarsgard viewed me as his body guard as I kept all the girls away at bay. Now picture this, I'm 5'4" and Alexander is over six feet. This was no easy task either. So, this BOOK OF THE DAY  posting by Thomas LeBrun is on target. If you ever wanted to know the inside of guarding a celebrity, this book is it.

In today's weapon-based society, if an attack occurs, it is highly likely that an unarmed individual might face an armed attacker. To say that this is a recipe for a potentially dangerous situation is a serious understatement.
