Very interesting and encouraging.

A rare opportunity to absorb the truest and most honest life lessons from a man who had encountered numerous life-and-death situations where he had to make the right decision, because the cost of making the wrong one could be his own life and the life of the men under his command.
The stories presented by the author, provide the reader with a glimpse into the author's life and struggles - a life of a person who never quit and always finishes what he started.
It is rare to encounter such a set of important life lessons in under two hours of listening.
