    Not a problem, I was honestly wondering as I have not finished the book. It is a complex read for sure!

    Forgive me I was half asleep when I wrote that post. It has been sometime since I looked at that book (5 + years ago)and may have been mixed up with another book. I stand corrected.

    Best book ever written to help understand a cop was written by Dr. Gilmartin it is called Emotional Survival for Law Enforcement, it is write on the money!

    Unsure of any up to date books being out there. "What Cop's know" maybe a good book but keep in mind it tells stories on what they have seen and faced. This maybe a bad thing to give to a spouse thats already jumpy of your job.

    At any rate the best thing IMHO is to talk to your spouse about your job, yes it is dangerous but you are more likely to be killed dpoing other things. Not to mention having faith in god would alos help.

    I have to agree, I read that a while ago. It has a lot of insight into the thought process of LEO's.

    I just recently finishedd a book titled A Cop's Life, by Sgt. Randy Sutton. It doesn't really address the question on how to live with cops better, but it provided a really good insight on what cops face everyday. There are probably 14 short stories that are sad and a few that are uplifting. I thought it was a good read.

    Came across this book at B&N:

    There are a lot of online resources as well..but be sure to filter through what you find and use your better judgment. Most of the junk you'll stumble across online can be pretty pessimistic..just remember to be proactive; what's true for the group, isn't always true for the individual. Good luck.

    Books to help wife/gf out?

    What books do you recommend for your wife/husband or gf/bf, to read to understand about being with a cop or what to expect when they become one?
    "I love a Cop" is one I know of, what other books are good? Thanks
