Fantastic read , i work as a full time firefighter with my municipality and as a soldier with the candian primary reserves. Reading through the book i have found it to be a very good read. The auther touches on things that even as a fire fighter i and other have experianced and delt with . For example he talks about training on the simple drills and training like you play ( giving many example of how its important) so that when you are under extream pressure you will react in the way you trained . Or another example sleep deprevation and how it affects your proformance .

Only one draw back is , is that he is constatly pumping up other books . Although be it if they are as good as this one i will be impressed.

Read this before I went to Afghanistan and it helped tremendously. I'd recommend it, without a doubt, to all forces personnel.

Dave Grossman is truly the expert on this field. This book not only explains how warriors react in combat, but also how video games are programing our children to violence.

every person working law enforcement or military should read that book. It help to understand so many grey zone and tabou questions that every one of us don't dare asking, or simply don't have the answer. And how to prepare mentally to every situation.

An insightful read of the effects of deadly force encounters. Dave puts it clearly and matter of factly what happens when faced with lethal threats and how to overcome the bodies natural instincts and reactions. This book extends on the material covered in 'On Killing' and is a must read for anyone who may have to use lethal force in their lawful duty. As a former Canadian Forces Airborne Paratrooper and many years of carrying duty firearms, I recommend this book to help you prepare for the worst.
