really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction, military

Fascinating. The author's a former Army Ranger and a Baptist minister, and the theories presented blend seamlessly with both professions. Touches on the use of violent video games, referring to their earlier military training design purposes, and how society as a whole has become desensitized to killing and violence.
