About the Author

I am torn on the authors theory that violent movies and headlines are causing the youth to go and shoot up schools. I think that that kind of stuff is probably not healthy but something else must be going on to make a person commit this type of horror.
The chapters on PTSD and veterans coming home are also very timely. It will allow the regular Joe like me to better understand some of the issues our veterans and police are dealing with.
The chapters are fairly short so it lends itself well to listening to in the car and not losing track of the content.
And, of course, the content is PHENOMENAL! If you have ever read anything of Grossman's you know hat to expect, high level, intensive content with numerous references to source material (none of that "here's a fact - take my word for it.)
If you are a Law Enforcement Officer , a soldier, a Sheepdog, or any other form of Warrior, this should be required reading, but listening is even better!
That being said, I don't agree with David Grossman on 100% of the content or details of his book, but he is the most accurate I've seen so far. I'd give him a 90-95%, which is astounding.

A book for warriors and families of warriors of all walks: military, police, peace corps, firefighters, customs officers, first responders, teachers, parents and community leaders.
A book for those who wish for stability and democracy. A book for those who doubt it.
In the words of colleagues working at Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles:
”Hurt people hurt people”
And to defend against this and maintain peace there will be times when there is no other option than to fight fire with fire. When that time comes we will want informed, prepared and morally grounded warriors. Life over death, justice over vengeance.
P.S. We may all want to wake up to the toxicity of violent media and gaming when left unguided. Kids are warriors, just smaller.
I can summarise the 18 hours: Practice, practice, practice in the most high fidelity way you can. That's it.
*Thankyou Dr Suess
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.
Auch sollten die Englischkenntnisse entweder recht gut sein oder aber man sollte im Vorfeld mit leichterer englischsprachiger Literatur (in dem Themengebiet) anfangen. Das erspart einem das nervige Suchen von Vokabeln die man zum Verständnis auf jeden Fall braucht.
Alles in allem aber ein gutes und wichtiges Buch in dem die Kapitel 1 - 3 herausragend sind - deshalb 4 Sterne!
