I am reading Gavin DeBecker's "The Gift of Fear". I can't put it down. It's one of the best books I've ever read. Do you have any other "recommended reading"? I've heard good things about Grossman's books (there's another thread on them) -- as well as "On Aggression" and "Men in Groups" (recommended by Crafty Dog). Thanks! -Sean

For self-defence, Strong On Defense is a must. And of course The Fighter's Notebook.
