CCW / Lethal defense suggested reading?

Hey everyone, Ive browsed many different forum and multiple times there have been people talking about self defense and concealed carry and there are those books that are a really good read and nearly every person should read.

Does anyone recollect which books are the holy grail of CCW holders or have suggestions?
Thanks!

In the Gravest Extreme by Massad Ayoob

Ought to be mandatory reading for all CCW holders.


Principles of Personal Defense, by Jeff Cooper

Ought to be mandatory reading for just about everyone.

John Farnam & Massad Ayoob both focus most of their training on the needs of the armed private citizen. Their books are a reflection of that. I've had both of them as instructors multiple times over the last 30 years and recommend them highly
