Neural-Based Training Book One: Retrospectives

Thank you to all of you for making NEURAL BASED TRAINING the #1 New Release on Amazon!  BUY HERE


This book is a curated compilation of blog posts published between 2009 and 2019.  This collection is intended to be a retrospective primer on neural-based training during my early years of research and application.  There are works here that first appeared pre-internet, during the 80s and 90s, back when I began my journey into understanding how the brain works in a fight. This introduces my experiments in designing training to maximize benefit to the students by providing learning experiences that worked the way the brain did under stress.

While this book addresses much research it’s not the most current research that I’ve done. That will appear in subsequent books in this series. The next book will focus on my work on situational awareness, summaries of the most recent research, and detailed “how-to” on training situational awareness at the neurological/cognitive level via interactive and immersive exercises that immediately change the brain.

With that caveat in mind, I think that reviewing this material to see where I’ve been before will provide the best introduction to the next generation of work.

This book is not intended as a textbook, but rather as a notebook that provides a map one can follow in subsequent books.  

I want to thank my friend and former student Peter Morgan for his great help in curating the hundreds of thousands of words on my old blog and helping me find the wheat amongst the chaff.


This collection and all my research in the field and lab are dedicated to my students out there, who believed, practiced and did (and continue to do) the deed out where the rubber meets the road. God bless you and thank you for the honor of teaching you.
