Advance Praise for A Warrior's Guide to Psychology and Performance

"This book will be very useful to the young men and women who choose careers as military professionals. The country is indebted to the authors and editors of this book, and to those who read and will benefit from it."---Paul Ekman, PhD, professor emeritus of psychology, University of California, San Francisco

"This well-written treatise reminds the reader of the wide spectrum of psychological and physical challenges associated with the profession of arms. More importantly, the authors set forth a truly encyclopedic variety of useful information about how soldiers, sailors, and airmen, along with those who are close to them, might best respond to these challenges. If you serve in the military or have a relationship with someone who does, this is a worthwhile read."---Lt. Gen. Ervin J. Rokke, USAF (Ret.), PhD; former president of the National Defense University

"Psychological preparation for combat is immensely important. Every military leader should read A Warrior's Guide to Psychology and Performance. This book will help them improve soldier resiliency, strengthen unit cohesion, and steel soldiers and units against post-traumatic stress and the various dysfunctions that come with it."---Brig. Gen. Herbert R. McMaster, USA, PhD; Chief of Concept Development and Learning, Army Capabilities Integration Center; author of Dereliction of Duty

"This book is timely and long overdue. For our men and women in the profession of arms, and for their families, the challenges of the twenty-first century are as complex as the myriad roles and environments in which they serve. This book represents more than just a guide to survival. Based on the most current wisdom in psychology and related sciences, it is a resource for thriving in military life and service."---Brig. Gen. Dana H. Born, USAF, dean of faculty, U.S. Air Force Academy
