bookshelves: abandoned, to-read

intriguing start: Pavlov and his classification of dogs in the same four categories that hyppocrates classifies people: choleric, sangvinic, ... chapter two is interesting too: observations about soldiers and civilians in the second world war breaking down after too much stress and fear show how people can change instantly in a moment of high instability.
Even the strongest soldiers of Caesar, his eagle carrying veterans break down bad after the lengthy war in Gaul.
