Publisher's Summary

Fifth grade was the worst year of Marc's life. He stunk at gym class, math was too hard for him, the school lunch was horrible, and his class field trip was ruined because he couldn't swim. But what was the most awful thing about fifth grade? Kenny Williamson, the class bully, who called himself the "King of the Jungle".
When Marc's mother tells him that his uncle Jake is coming to stay for the whole summer, Marc can't wait. Uncle Jake is a for-real super-cool Navy SEAL. And Uncle Jake has a plan.
He's going to turn Marc into a warrior.
Becoming a warrior isn't easy. It means a lot of pull-ups, sit-ups, push-ups, squats, swimming, eating right, and studying harder than ever before! Can Marc transform himself into a warrior before school starts in the fall - and finally stand up to the King of the Jungle himself?

REQUIRED READING

Where does Way of the Warrior Kid rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This one is at the top. Look, it's a "kid's book" in it's format, but it's also an excellent distillation of what Jocko (and Leif) put forth through their work: Echelon Front. Also, what Jocko is getting at so often with his podcast. If you have sons...scratch that...children, this should be required reading.


What other book might you compare Way of the Warrior Kid to and why?

Can't think of one


Which character – as performed by Thor Willink and Jocko Willink – was your favorite?

Mark all the way. Couldn't have been better or meant more to have Thor Willink read the part.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I think it's Jocko's job to come up with that one.


Any additional comments?

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. If you have children and anything remotely related to self-esteem, discipline, respect and responsibility are important to you, read this to your kids.

Thank you Jocko

Thank you Jocko, for everything. Also, my wife was 9 months pregnant and I gave her some white tea to drink. All of sudden her water broke, but instead of going to the hospital she just started doing burpees until she delivered a healthy strong boy, who then also started doing burpees.
