RANDOM STREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS NOTES AND OBSERVATIONS:
Principle 1: "ALERTNESS"
--p. 14: "Make it a game. Keep a chart. Every time anyone is able to approach you from behind without your knowledge, mark down an X. Every time you see anyone you know before he sees you, mark down an O. Keep the Os ahead of the Xs. A month with no Xs establishes the formation of correct habits." Wow, I'll have to keep this in mind!
Principle 2: "DECISIVENESS "
--p. 18: "a parturient effort of will"
Principle 3: "AGGRESSIVENESS "
--pp. 22-23: Indignation and anger
Principle 4: "SPEED"
--p. 24: "Speed is the absolute essence of any form of combat, from a fencing match to the Six-Day War."
--p. 25: "Be fast, not fair."
Principle 5: "COOLNESS"
--p. 26: "Anger, as long as it is controlled anger, is no obstacle to efficiency."
--p. 28: "'Buck fever' is a classic affliction, and a man who has conquered it can be guaranteed to shoot carefully under pressure."
Principle 6: "RUTHLESSNESS"
--p. 30: "Anyone who willfully and maliciously attacks another without sufficient cause deserves no consideration."
--p. 32: "The first man who resisted Starkweather, after eleven murders, overcame him easily and without injury." WIKIPEDIA LOOKUP
Principle 7: "SURPRISE"
--p. 33: "This is put last on purpose, for surprise is the first principle of *offensive* combat....But that does not mean that the defender cannot achieve *tactical* surprise." (Emphasis original)

Read information about the authorJohn Dean "Jeff" Cooper was recognized as the father of what is commonly known as the Modern Technique of handgun shooting, and one of the 20th century's foremost international experts on the use and history of small arms.
Cooper was commissioned into the United States Marine Corps prior to the attack on Pearl Harbor. During World War II he served in the Pacific on the USS Pennsylvania (BB-38), and then was recalled to active duty for the Korean War, resigning his commission as Lieutenant Colonel in 1956. He received a bachelor's degree in political science from Stanford University and, in the mid-1960s, a master's degree in history from the University of California, Riverside.
In 1976, Cooper founded the American Pistol Institute (API) in Paulden, Arizona (later the Gunsite Training Center). Cooper began teaching shotgun and rifle classes to law enforcement and military personnel as well as civilians and did on-site training for individuals and groups from around the world.
Cooper died at his home on the afternoon of Monday, September 25, 2006 at the age of 86
