Publisher's Summary

A former Navy SEAL sniper turned media CEO and New York Times best-selling author teaches business leaders how to make the best decisions under pressure.
Over his four deployments as a Navy SEAL sniper, Brandon Webb learned all about performing while experiencing heart-pounding stress. After returning to civilian life, he started his first business venture - and failed miserably. He realized that his big mistake was neglecting to apply what he already knew about focus under pressure. By drawing on the lessons of his SEAL training and early business struggles, Webb went on to build a second business, a media network called Hurricane, which today has an audience of millions and a valuation over $100 million.
Now Webb deconstructs the decision-making DNA of the most effective snipers and shows you how to develop the same mental acuity in civilian life. Drawing on stories from his own experiences and those of other Special Operations warriors and great entrepreneurs, like Solomon Choi of 16 Handles, Matt Meeker of BarkBox, and Betsy Morgan of The Huffington Post and TheBlaze, he teaches you how to have total situational awareness to stay out of danger and adapt to changing circumstances, to avoid the trap of overanalysis, and to understand that pain is temporary and learning is priceless.
By following in the path of a generation of legendary snipers, you'll find the clarity of mind you need to make key decisions and accomplish your mission, whatever it takes.

Ironically Not Excellent

The voice of the narrator comes off as smug and arrogant. Not fitting to my impression of Brandon.

It also felt pretty heavy with self promotion of their website, which due to their many branchez seems to lack the focus preached in the book.

Unfortunately the forum community that is part of the site is nearly dead. a few first time intro posts with at most 40+ online users.

For all the boasting about the brilliance of Brandon's online media site, the good information thay he had to offer felt light in comparison.

It is a shame as he is obviously knowledgable, talented and intelligent. Especially given his access to such an amazing community, their resources and shared accomplishments.

I couldn't help but feel towarxs the end the book waz really about upselling his websote than about teaching his readers.

Even worse it feels his site is already sold as if he took already took a deal. I see the shell of the initial heart and intent, but the community aspect feels like an empty husk now.

There is great work, but it feels as if it is wilting and he has moved onto a new plant in the garden, just like the analogy he used in his book.

Sorry Brandon, there is good here, but I feel you lost focus in your book and just started promoting the next product for me to buy towards the end.
