Shooting from Within: A Guide to Maximum Performance
Author J. Michael Plaxco is an accomplished IPSC style shooter, a discipline which ostensibly focuses on more "practical" concerns than more static and purely accuracy oriented target disciplines. IPSC focuses on both speed and accuracy in a variety of situations.Keeping that background in mind, Plaxco offers an excellent book that will give the reader both practical ways of improving their performance and a broad based theoretical approach to sports psychology and general performance enhancement. Reading and applying the many lessons in this book will dramatically enhance the skills of a tactical, military, law enforcement, or competitive shooter.The book is written in an accessible and readable style, all the photographs are exceptional, and the layout is sensible. While I do not recommend this book for a beginner, it is an excellent source for someone who has had some basic defensive training skills. Police officers who are serious about developing their skills beyond the pathetic level learned in academy will profit more from this book than any other I can think of... IF THEY APPLY THE PRACTICE ROUTINES.With that being said, this is not merely a book you read once. This is a book you read, you experiment with, you read again, experiment with, highlight, underline, and read some more. This is a guidebook to the self development and enhancement of motorskills. It's not just a bunch of random pointers, tricks, and insights.
We would LOVE it if you could help us and other readers by reviewing the book
