    The good news is that the vast majority of soldiers are loath to kill in battle. Unfortunately, modern armies, using Pavlovian and operant conditioning have developed sophisticated ways of overcoming this instinctive aversion. sophisticated ways of overcoming this instinctive aversion. The psychological cost for soldiers, as witnessed by the increase in post-traumatic stress, is devastating.

    If you could sum up On Killing in three words, what would they be?

    insightful, compelling, and disturbing


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Killing?

    when the canadian nato officer brakes into the church where the nun was being raped it was shocking to hear of such barbarism in humanity but also it gave me hope seeing how the young nun still was not broken from the traumatic experience


    What about Dave Grossman’s performance did you like?

    he kept you in the book i always enjoy the author to be the narrator because it is as if he is describing his beliefe structure to you as if in a conversation more then just flipping threw the pages of a book


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    not sure he did pretty well


    Any additional comments?

    great book hope to read or listen to more from this author
