Great little listen

This was always a book I was meaning to read, but never getting around to it. Alex MacDonald came to my rescue and did a fantastic narration. Most books that I have read in this genre are more than a little disappointing but this one delivered. Only got a little bit mystical at the end when he was explaining what lunar activity to look for before executing a fiery campaign of combustible mayhem.

Some really good advice interspersed about picking your battles which has more than militaristic application.

Excellent book. Excellent narration.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So applicable to life with such succinct narration

Having read this book a various times throughout my life, sometimes in totality and others in portions, I found that listening to this work strengthened the overall impact of its messages. Alex McDonald's narration was over the top fantastic and perfect for material. His tone and cadence marches the listener through the strategic steps outlined as they were intended to be used in a military fashion. That being said, it is of little wonder that these well proven theories and strategies are applicable to so many aspects of our every day lives.

I highly recommend this version of the book and would suggest that most would benefit from setting aside a little over an hour of their time to give it a listen. I guarantee at least some portion of it will change your outlook on getting through life.

A review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in return for this unbiased review. My hope is that this review helps in your decision to obtain this book.
