With growing animosity toward law enforcement professionals, government corruption, disregard for the constitution, and racial tension thanks to the media and hate groups, there seems to be no easy answer in sight. But Sheriff David Clarke knows where we must begin. We must stop blaming others and take ownership of our families, communities, and country.
The good news is that the vast majority of soldiers are loath to kill in battle. Unfortunately, modern armies, using Pavlovian and operant conditioning have developed sophisticated ways of overcoming this instinctive aversion. The psychological cost for soldiers, as witnessed by the increase in post-traumatic stress, is devastating.

This is a must listen for anyone in law enforcement but will also delight fans of thrillers, mysteries, and true crime. The author is a 20year LE veteran, but his advise is, keep your head down on patrol and get off the streets as soon as possible. He goes on to tell you he was very pro strict gun laws and never carried a gun off duty until way late in his career. It wasnt until his research to prove gun laws work, that he discovered they dont work and started carrying off duty.
The info he gives from his research into mass shooting's is the only worth while info given. He gives some interrogation points. He then talks about many other topics and gives super Liberal views in which he did little to no factual research. He just regurgitates false rhetoric given by CNN. I hope at some point he will actually research those topics, so just like his previous views on gun laws, his views can be corrected. I found this authors LE experience with racism vastly different then mine. Maybe I have just always worked for good departments or maybe he just spent his whole career behind a desk watch the news, instead of being a street cop.
I worked multiple years in patrol in a large metropolitan area. I have been a Sniper on the Swat team for several years. On top of many other things I found annoyingly wrong with this book, is the fact that this Officer spent almost his entire carrier as a detective, but still had the audacity to name his book "The Way of the Warrior. I want to make clear I have no personal ties to law enforcement, the military, or any profession that might have ever used a gun. However, I have a deep appreciation for an honest story, well told and this is definitely one of those. I also heard in The Way of the Warrior, 2 the often brutally honest storytelling and vivid descriptions from The Bitter Taste of Dying: A Memoir by Jason Smith, a man working very hard to get away from the law.
Expert knowledge and excellent story. With over twenty years of experience and a father with another 30 years, the author is more than expert in what it is to be part of a police organization.
While some of the reviews and blurbs mark it as required reading for police training programs, this wisdom reaches much further and to a general audience. The police dramas on television do the profession a disservice because they make it seem like each day is one filled with the excitement that keeps an officer prepared at all times.
However, there is often tedium that might make an officer leave their bulletproof vest off their body. The routine might lead to forgoing regular practice for when a situation comes that makes clear the officer has not readied for it.
Talking With Bernard Schaffer WAY OF THE WARRIOR
The book made me remember every instance I met a police officer, good and bad, but I want to share one. Few books get it right like this one did. About the narrator: James Patrick Cronin is a veteran narrator who has over books on Audible alone. Audiobook was provided for review by the publisher. Please find this complete review and many others at my review blog.
So I read this book because I was going back to patrol after several years as a detective. This book helped me put my head back in the game. I highly recommend everyone, especially supervisors, to read this book.
It definitely helped me to understand my troops. Bravo Zulu to the author. With having 20 years of law enforcement experience, I have read and listened to many books regarding mindset, training, case law, etc. This book too it to a new level. I found that I'm already doing most of the things Schaffer speaks of in his book.
I was happy to see that in most things we agree. Where he lost me was in his last chapter I'm not going to go into what the last chapter is about, so you'll just have to spend a credit and find out for yourself. I think this should be a must read for all new officers.
Your audiobook is waiting…
A very insightful and blunt look into the mindset of the modern day police officer. As a leo a lot of it comes as obvious, however I did learn a few things I had never thought of before. The last couple chapters had some very hypocritical, ignorant, or maybe just ill informed view points that I don't agree with. To speak about facts and then disregard well known facts about certain highly publicized officer involved killings was nauseating.
I still highly recommend it even with those short comings. As an author, I bought this book for research purposes, in order to gain a better understanding of the mentality of law enforcement officers. It certainly did not disappoint. Despite having little interest in the subject, I found the anecdotes engaging and never felt like giving up on it--which I will often do if a book does not interest me. The narration was very pleasant, and fit the book perfectly. It was perhaps the tiniest bit stilted in places, in the sense that you could tell it was being read rather than seamlessly performed, but this was nowhere near distracting enough to be irritating.
