Good Books

The Gift of Fear, Gavin De Becker. Excellent book, easily readable on how the mind and body pick-up fear and how to use it to one's advantage. Should help determine when one is"really in fear of losing one's life".



On Killing-The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society, Lt. Col Dave Grossman. An eye-opening book on killing. It destroys many myths about combat deaths, and the cost of killing to the killer. Very applicable to military, cops, those who carry a firearm for self defense, or anyone who may make a decision to take a life. Veterans in particular should read this book.



I put this book up with Massas Ayoob's In the Gravest Extreme as required reading before someone thinks they can take a life.



Regards,



Steve

Another good book-



The new "NRA Firearms Sourcebook" - billed as "Your Ultimate Guide to Guns, Ballistics and Shooting" this is more of a reference work but should have something for everybody. I can see myself refering to it often on technical details.



And, of course, you are helping to support a great cause when you buy the book, which at over 500 pages goes for around $35 on the NRA website!
