Sharpening The Warrior's Edge is the first text which examines survival and combat performance from a scientific perspective. Author Bruce K. Siddle methodically brings together one hundred years of research which identifies the relationship between survuval stress, the heart rate and combat performance. Beyond mere theory, the test explains ... why combat performance and reaction time deteriorates under the effects of survival stress, why and how perceptual and visual narrowing occurs during combat, an insight into Survival Stress Management techniques designed for combat, how to develop a training methodology which combines educational psychology, neurobiology, principles of learning and motor learning research. Most importantly, Siddle explores the psychological and spiritual components which establish the warrior mindset. This pioneering text is a must read for present -day warriors, or anyone involved in use of force, combat or martial arts training.

"Counterpredators" is a modern solution to an ancient problem: Parents face the overwhelming responsibility of training their children to navigate the threat environment and safely molding them into powerful, self-aware, authentic adults. At the same time, many parents do not themselves possess the necessary skill set-and when their children sense this, they begin to adopt questionable heroes and role models. In the natural world, animal parents train their young by repeatedly exposing them to hazard, while demonstrating efficient risk management, yet our society teaches us to do the exact opposite: Shelter and protect our children from whatever might harm them. As a result, many children are profoundly unprepared to deal with real threat. Since both animal and human young are equally vulnerable, it is easy to spot the weak link: The unprepared human parent. To solve this problem, parents need to assume a powerful new identity, something unique and elemental that rivets the attention and imagination of their children. They must become counterpredators: individuals who have the skill and the will to engage and overcome human threats. "Counterpredators" is the story of how to achieve this transition using cutting edge methodology. Survival Response Conditioning --the re-activation of dormant, subconscious survival skills combined with high pressure, scenario based experiences--produces rapid, permanent change and provides the launch pad for an unbreakable bond of love and respect between parents and children.
