“This book holds a template for enhancing performance—attention span, focus, rapid recovery from shock, and stress. Although I was initially skeptical, I became convinced when I was able to see, review, and understand the supporting science, in particular the data that shows physiological changes. These outcomes hold value in all environments and conditions, and can help people gain more mastery of their bodies to improve their daily performance, and their overall lives.
—Major General Melvin G. Spies, U.S. Marine Corps (Et.), former commander of the.S.M.C. Training and Education Command
