Review submitted by a coworker:
Practical Lock Picking by Deviant Ollam was an enjoyable read. The author does a good job of covering the art and science of picking locks. He chose two of the most common types of locks for the bulk of his material which helps keep the focus of the book tight. He leads the reader from the basic operational principles of the locks, to flaws in the design & manufacture and finally how to pick the locks. The coverage of pick types and other tools of the trade round out the readers knowledge of the subject. His down to earth style and simple language help the reader understand the material and develop the skills to pick these types of locks. His logical progression of starting with one pin and working your way up to all the pins in the lock will help the reader build confidence in their skills. The final sections on bypassing the door reminds the reader that locks are part of a system and sometimes the way to defeat a system is not the direct approach. Overall I would give this book 4 out of 4 stars.

    Great show. One note on lockpicking in NC. It is illegal to CARRY picking tools if not a licensed locksmith. What these tools are is codified. Committing a crime or conspiracy to commit is not necessary to be charged. Keep up the great work.
