Quite interesting, gripping at times, stories of people going through all kinds of stressful situations and how they dealt with it. Lots of practical tips on how to overcome fear and panic. The last chapter about how police, military, and other organizations have learned they must train their people is eye opening.

Some good ideas about how to react when stressed. I liked and am using the breathing technique. I read the whole book, but one could just read the first few chapters. The last half is examples of how experts-in-handling-danger performed.
