Citizens, armed or not, will benefit from the information to help them survive violent threats. "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away." If citizens use deadly force to survive, this book will help them prepare for the legal and emotional challenges of the aftermath.

Although the focus is about savings lives when threatened with violence, much of the information is relevant to people facing a wide variety of extreme events and everyday dangers.

All readers who want facts about violent encounters rather than myth and ill-informed hyperbole will find this book a useful reference.

"Candid, well-written, readable, informative."  ~ R. Weitzel

In 1997, renown police psychologist Dr. Alexis Artwohl and police officer Loren W. Christensen (co-author of On Combat) wrote Deadly Force Encounters: What Cops Need to Know to Mentally and Physically Prepare for and Survive a Gunfight. It quickly became an authoritative book for police officers, citizens legally carrying a concealed firearm, and police academies.

The greatly expanded scientific research, stories, and analysis in this second edition, Deadly Force Encounters: Cops and Citizens Defending Themselves and Others, focus on the most infrequent but most challenging part of the police profession: the use of deadly force. This book is not about specific laws, tactics, or equipment, but how the science of human performance influences the people behind the badge. This knowledge is crucial for physical, legal, and emotional survival.
