    "Snipers are finally getting their pop culture moment and I'm more than excited to keep learning about the very interesting role they play in contemporary warfare. 'Hunters: U.S. Snipers in the War on Terror' delves deep into how and why they behave and react to their positions, especially in the modern context. I really appreciate the use of both anecdata and science to illustrate examples and came away with a better understanding of what we ask from our troops. Much respect to the author and the snipers for educating us all."

    "I've always liked any form of media about snipers. That includes games, movies, documentaries and of course books. Stalk and Kill is a well written informative book about the world of snipers and the many ordeals and terrors they have to confront during war. This is certainly worth the read."
