  1. Or, to give it its full title: On Killing: The Psychological Cost of Learning to Kill in War and Society. Written by a retired US Army Ranger and psychology lecturer at West Point, this book investigates the psychology of killing, especially from the soldier's point of view. One interesting myth he writes about is the "Flight or Fight" fallacy, which happens only in an intraspecies species face off. When two members of the same species get into that situation, the choices also include Posture and Submit. Think peacocks and bull walruses and all manner of other animals where death hardly ever occurs when there's a conflict. And that avoidance of death is the critical factor. A young lion may need to lay down and expose his vulnerable belly so that he can grow and learn. It's a little dry in parts but still a fascinating read into an interesting subject.
