Lesson..learned??

The title of this book is lessons learned from the Elite Rangers. First my kudos to US Rangers! My eyes were opened to exactly what they go through to serve our country. Absolutely incredible. I know I couldn't make it.

Having said that most of the book was simply stories of the author plodding his way through rain, sleet, mud, snow, and what muck there is around. I think the reader would have been better served if the actual lessons were highlighted in a practical manner.

Very Inspiring

The stories are great, and highly motivating regardless of whether you're military or not. My only complaint is that the chapter transitions were pretty awkward. The narrator would begin a story, the transition music would play, and then he would continue the story. The flow of story transitions themselves didn't translate so great in spoken form, either. But overall, I definitely recommend this story for anyone with the mindset of wanting to challenge themselves. So, what's it going to be? Success? Or excuse?
