"RELENTLESS COURAGE is one of the most important books of our time...RELENTLESS COURAGE is truly the natural and essential successor to my book, ON COMBAT."

- Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, whose book ON COMBAT sold half a million copies

Our first responders are uniquely strong, brave, and emotionally flexible.

They are called to support us on the worst days of our lives. They see and hear things that are burned into their memories forever. They see the worst in humanity and then do their best to be a loving partner, parent, and friend.

On the other hand, they are uniquely vulnerable.

Suicide among police officers is 54 percent greater than among American workers in general. First responders are resigning in droves. In a sample of more than 700 police officers, over half have been threatened with a gun (51%), knife or weapon (55%), and nearly all (87%) have seen someone dying (87.2%).

Best-selling author and renowned psychologist Dr. Shauna Springer and decorated Sergeant Michael Sugrue team up in RELENTLESS COURAGE. Sugrue bares his soul, helping readers understand what led him to become suicidal at one time. Each chapter includes a wealth of original, game-changing insights on trauma from Dr. Shauna Springer, one of the world's leading experts in psychological trauma and healing.

For example...

- What are some of the worst traumas a first responder can face?

- What kinds of experiences after trauma can make its impact even worse?

- What is the difference between telling our story to heal and sharing about trauma in a way that deepens the trauma further?

- Does evil exist, or are all of us just reacting to our own unaddressed trauma?

- How can any of us come back from the places where hope seems to have abandoned us?

Together, Sugrue and Springer tell the story that has been hidden in plain sight and provide perspective, truth and wisdom to help mend the divide between first responders and those they serve, and to help us all heal from our own traumas.
