What does happen to the human body under the influence of stress in a deadly encounter? What about the nervous system, heart, breathing, vision and hearing, and memory? What do modern warriors need to avoid reaching nervous exhaustion and continue fighting to survive and win? The authors of this book, Lieutenant Colonel Dave Grossman, a former U.S. Army Ranger and lecturer in psychology at West Point, and Loren Christensen, an experienced police officer and Vietnam War veteran, answer these and other questions facing combatants and law enforcement officers. The reader will learn about the psychological evolution of combat operations; about the development of techniques that increase the effectiveness of military personnel and their psychological endurance and help them to emerge from the toxic environment of deadly combat with a stronger body and spirit. The book is included in the list of recommended readings at the U.S. Military Academy and the FBI Academy.
