Skimpy on Leadership analogy

This book would be great for someone who is about to join the army, it is loaded with details on Army Ranger training, but is short on comparing these feats to any type of leadersip analogies. Better to spend time listening to more executive type books than this one. Sorry, I had high hopes for a no-nonsense get down and dirty how-to leadership book, but got a diary of boot camp instead.

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.
