Sharpening The Warrior’s Edge – The Psychology & Science Of Training by Bruce K. Siddle is a book that takes a scalpel and dissects the many deep aspects of the psychological process when coupled with high stress survival situations.

Siddle does a phenomenal job of bringing forth a very systematic approach into the many crevices that encompass the totality of a warrior mindset.  The author also delves  into the oft-overlooked spiritual component that many other authors overlook in this field.

Although relatively complex in its breath and scope, the book actually is a quick read.  That’s always a plus.

The way the author distills potentially intricate subjects such as survival mindset, implementing survival research, survival reaction time, the neural basis of survival motor programs and condenses them to bite-sized chunks makes the book that much easier to read.

Anyone from any walk of life could pick this book up and be able to garner useful information proportional to the motivation driving them.

Personally, the stress management, and breath control management information and discussions were the most useful for me, but your millage may vary.

All the information discussed is appreciated because it all forms various components of a robust methodology which can be employed in potential combat/survival scenarios of all types.  Each of those areas of an individual’s repertoire discussed by the author can mean the difference between life and death, and to have that information discussed objectively put together for individuals is something that is beyond priceless.
