Occasionally someone asks about training book recommendations here. Since this forum has been a little slow, I wanted to list some books that I thought were worth every penny that I spent on them. LEADERSHIP AND TRAINING FOR THE FIGHT by Paul Howe Should be required reading for every cop, military member, and anyone striving for self-improvement. ON COMBAT by David Grossman Should be required reading for anyone who takes responsibility for their own self defense. I enjoyed it more (and it meant more to me) than ON KILLING. COMBATIVE FUNDAMENTALS by Jeff Gonzales Probably the best pistol and carbine specific "instructional book" that I've read. HANDGUN COMBATIVES by Dave Spaulding I used to think he was just a gun rag writer...I was wrong. THE BOOK OF TWO GUNS by Tiger McKee Very good stuff articulated very well. EQUAL OR GREATER FORCE by Kit Cessna.
