  • Dave Grossman Leo Frankowski

    Lt Col Dave Grossman is the author of On Killing and On Combat as well as several science fiction books.In 1998 Lt Colonel Grossman retired from the military as Professor of Military Science at Arkansas State University His career includes service in the United States Army as a sergeant in the U.S 82nd Airborne Division, a platoon leader in the 9th Infantry Division United States , a general staff officer, a company commander in the 7th Infantry Division United States as well as the U.S Army Rangers and a teacher of psychology at West Point.Grossman s first book, On Killing The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society is an analysis of the physiological processes involved with killing another human being In it, he reveals evidence that most people have a phobic level response to violence, and that soldiers need to be specifically trained to kill In addition, he details the physical effects that violent stresses produce on humans, ranging from tunnel vision, changes in sonic perception, and post traumatic stress disorder.Grossman argues that the techniques used by armies to train soldiers to kill are mirrored in certain types of video games The conclusion he draws is that playing violent video games, particularly Light gun shooters of the First person shooter variety where the player holds a weapon like game controller , train children in the use of weapons and, importantly, harden them emotionally to the task of murder by simulating the killing of hundreds or thousands of opponents in a single typical video game.His second book, On Combat The Psychology and Physiology of Deadly Conflict in War and in Peace , is an extension of the first, intended to provide coping strategies for dealing with the physiological and psychological effects of violence for people forced to kill in their line of work soldiers and police officers.Grossman uses blunt language that draws the ire of gamers during the heights of video game controversy, he was interviewed on the content of his books, and repeatedly used the term murder simulator to describe first person shooter games.Since his retirement from the Army, Grossman has founded the Killology Research Group and continues to educate law enforcement officers and soldiers in the techniques he has studied for improving outcomes in lethal encounters He also speaks at civilian events on ways to reduce violence in society and deal with the aftermath of violent events such as school shootings.

  • I picked this book hoping for something with in common with Flatland.What I got Imagine a speculative fiction novel written circa 1800 You have navies with wooden sailing ships, cannons, muskets and swords The speculative part is that 3 D ships sail on a magic map each ship has a part sailing on the top side fo the map another half sailing on the map s underside The map has pictures on it and when it shows a picture of a piece of land the crew can lower a magic ladder into the map and climb dow [...]


  • Written by Dave Grossman and Leo Frankowski I was intrigued by their views of training for combat As a sci fi fan the references to classics authors was ok but If you do not read sci fi it is a referenence which is not explained necessarily.It was also not as smooth as many of the space operas The poems at times seemed to be crammed in and close but not quite the thing There were points were it added.My favorites of Frankowski were the original Conrad books tongue in cheek but not overwhelming [...]


  • Great yarn Imaginative and logically consistent environment universe, great characters, lots of action Only one nit that I can pick Assuming that the capabilities of the 2 space small arms used are generally comparable to those of the days of wooden ships and iron men, I have to suspend too much belief when it comes to the defensive capabilities of the space monkeys.


  • It is a very good book and was presently surprised that the middle section of the book was so gripping, since the first quarter was not Overall a very good book and I m happy I picked it as a random read from the library Mr Grossman will be added to my list of authors.


  • I think the author wrote this because of a desire to play with certain ideas, rather than in the pursuit of telling a great story, or of putting together a world that would fascinate or fill you with wonder.
