Tim Larkin is regarded as one of the world's finest specialists on violence. He was a member of a beta group that redefined how Special Operations forces trained for close combat as a former military intelligence officer. During the course of his 25-year career, he has educated more than 10,000 people in more than 50 nations, including elite combat units, celebrities and high-status businessmen, law enforcement agencies, and high-net-worth families, on how to deal with imminent violence through his organization Target Focus Training (TFT). Surviving The Unthinkable, written by Larkin, is a New York Times best-selling novel. He currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.
