"For police officers, military operatives, firefighters, and other first responders, stress is an inescapable phenomena. How an individual responds to each and every instance can completely change their occupational effectiveness, efficiency, and even personal life outside the career. A Scientific Approach to Reality Based Training takes a unique and much needed approach to rationally explaining highly technical, scientific constructs in a easy to read and easy to apply manner. The empirically supported concepts, tools, and techniques found within are essential to performing well under duress and should be a foundation to training and testing in all high-stress occupations. Mr. Quail and Dr. Wollert's book is well-written, researched, and provides a thorough and practical understanding of the science behind the method and a step-by-step guide to putting everything in play. I have been doing human performance and stress research for over a decade and have yet to see such a well-written and practically applicable text. It should be on the reading list of every operator, facilitator, and scientist across the police, military, and first responder spectrum."
