I don't read SEAL Books...

As a veteran, I hold a strong resentment for the unabashed self promotion of the SEAL community. This however is one of my favorite books, period. I am glad I set my ego aside and gave it a chance. This book contains all the best points of a capable combat leader, and many points are hidden within main points as well. I recommend this book to all people, regardless of their profession.

I am confident that if you give this book and honest listen and sincerely apply the lessons learned, he will reap benefits from this amazing book.

Lots of violence but good business lessons also.

I would normally avoid violence.

For example it is 40 years since I enjoyed 2nd world war books.

The Iraq war stories are fascinating especially listening from the perspective of the people who led the missions on the ground.

There were was a huge price to pay for any mistakes.

It makes our leadership challenges seem much less important.

Strangely for that reason the lessons transferred very well.

Our leadership might not be life and death but it is very important in our lives.

It is worth learning from these guys.

Outstanding, an actual 'Good Times' read

As a former military officer I thought the modern generation of leadership training would have moved on from what I was taught over two decades ago, it hasn't, just the basics refined and enhanced (with better toys in support).
In my current role as a C suite executive this book served as a reminder of how these military principles should be applied in the coroporate world.
On a personal note, the recollection of training and combat actions bought back memiories. Often I found myself smiling and nodding in agreement.
Great job lads!

Well worth the price

Lots of actionable advice with highly relevant parallels between military experience and its application to business/ life in general. Listened to it twice already. Highly recommend.
