Book Report #25, Massad Ayoob, Stressfire

Stressfire is a handgun combat manual intended chiefly for law enforcement officers in close quarters gunfights under adverse conditions. It's surprisingly readable, quite straightforward, critical of established procedure as of the time of its writing, and lavishly illustrated. And occasionally quite funny.

Also, it can teach you quite a lot about what can go wrong in a firefight, both directly and through implication. Which is a very good reason for most writers to read it.
