Very cool indeed.
This is a discussion on Met Lt Col Dave Grossman today within the Law Enforcement, Military & Homeland Security Discussion forums, part of the Related Topics category; He gave a 4-hr seminar at my base today...man! He's a very engaging speaker! I had a couple of books autographed and took a pic ...
He gave a 4-hr seminar at my base today...man! He's a very engaging speaker! I had a couple of books autographed and took a pic with him. I also captured some video. He talks about the 98% that don't have a propensity for violence (sheep), 1% who are psychopaths (wolves), and the 1% who have a propensity for violence, but love the sheep (sheepdogs). I know this has been covered before, but it's another thing to see it explained live. It's about 3 mins long.

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
I have attended his eight-hour "Bulletproof Mind" seminar, and also have it on CD. Eye-opening stuff.
"To reject the notion of expertise, and to replace it with a sanctimonious insistence that every person has a right to his or her own opinion, is silly."
Great! Did you drop my name? He has used them in his speeches
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
That's a good video, I'll have to see what else I can look up on this.

You are so lucky.
I was just watching an interview of him yesterday. Great man.
I was lucky enough to attend his 2 day seminar last Summer. He's a great public speaker and what he said made lots of sense. I also bought his 8 hour seminar on DVDs via USCCA and it tracks his seminar very nicely.

I would like to meet him and spend a few minutes speaking with him. I like most of his books ("Stop teaching our kids to kill" was weak, even though the premise is solid), and his Bulletproof Mind DVDs are incredible (and at the $97 sale price are a great value - https://www.usconcealedcarry.com/bulletproof-mind/). It's amazing what you can pick-up speaking with a person like that.
It reminds me of the saying, “The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.” (Henri Bergson, a French philosopher that lived a century ago) By knowing something could happen, being able to label it, and then knowing how to deal with it is a lot better than just being caught by surprise and not knowing what to do next.
