Description

Former Secret Service agent and star of Bravo’s Spy Games Evy Poumpouras shares lessons learned from protecting presidents, as well insights and skills from the oldest and most elite security force in the world to help you prepare for stressful situations, instantly read people, influence how you are perceived, and live a more fearless life.

Becoming Bulletproof means transforming yourself into a stronger, more confident, and more powerful person. Evy Poumpouras—former Secret Service agent to three presidents and one of only five women to receive the Medal of Valor—demonstrates how we can overcome our everyday fears, have difficult conversations, know who to trust and who might not have our best interests at heart, influence situations, and prepare for the unexpected. When you have become bulletproof, you are your best, most courageous, and most powerful version of you. Poumpouras shows us that ultimately true strength is found in the mind, not the body.

Courage involves facing our fears, but it is also about resilience, grit, and having a built-in BS detector and knowing how to use it. In Becoming Bulletproof, Poumpouras demonstrates how to heighten our natural instincts to employ all these qualities and move from fear to fearlessness.

    Loved the book so much. Lots of lessons. However key takeaway is these lessons are helpful if you’re a genuinely nice person otherwise using them to manipulate people will only work in the short-run. I feel like if you’re genuine you end up doing these things without knowing. The writer however gives a sense of being overly paranoid and wanting to know everything which I guess comes with the job, however I think it’s exhausting living like that.
  • It is not a book that is that interesting

    The author seemed to reveal she really enjoyed her power and being able to talk about all her virtues. I wonder why she left the agency early?
  • Will reread many times
