    Hit or Miss: An Analysis of Practical Range Training

    Reviewed July 19, 1997                                                 Rating: 4
    A small book ostensibly on practical range training, but really on target systems.

    Reviewed July 19, 1997                                                 Rating: 10
    Essays on real-life shootouts, taken from the regular American Handgunner column.
  • Gavin de Becker
    The Gift of Fear: Survival Signals that Protect us from Violence

    Reviewed July 11, 1997                                                 Rating: 9
    An excellent investigation into the science of threat assessment. De Becker writes a self-help book aimed particularly at those at risk from a known threat. Very astute and informed.
  • Mike Dalton and Mickey Fowler
    Handguns and Self Defense: Life Without Fear

    Reviewed September 8, 1997                                       Rating: 8
    An introductory shooting book that goes beyond the usual gun-selection, grip-stance-fire conventions of the genre. From the very start shooters focus on tactics for home defense.
  • Connie Fletcher
    What Cops Know

    Reviewed August 10, 1997                                            Rating: 7
    A collection of interviews with Chicago PD officers about their work on the street and undercover. Very informative, both about police work and the crimes they investigate.
  • Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
    On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society

    Reviewed May 23, 1997                                                  Rating: 8
    A groundbreaking study of the factors that enable killing in war, how the military has designed infantry training to facilitate their killing, and the possible net effect on society. Grossman writes both from a military historian's and a psychologist's perspective, with attention to many other issues along the way.
