This book is tightly focused on making decisions in law enforcement applications and under less than ideal circumstances, particularly stress. It explains many of the complexities involved in high risk situations, as well as how the human nervous system functions. The book is an easy read and is replete with real-life examples that illustrate how factors and influences in play can influence decisions for both good and bad. The author is a professor at California State University, Fresno and his interests are in forensic applications of cognitive theory. The book is especially useful for law enforcement because it not only explains what is going on and why, but provides ways to improve.
