Lt. Col. Dave Grossman is a retired Army Ranger and the author of On Killing, On Combat, and a number of other books on the psychology of violence. His first book greatly influenced Ruwan when he was an officer select in the US Marine Corps. We discuss the Warrior archetype, trends affecting male mental health, how to prepare yourself for the worst, and stoicism.
