"Jocko and Leif served together in SEAL Task Unit Bruiser, the most highly decorated Special Operations unit from the war in Iraq. Their efforts contributed to the historic triumph for U.S. forces in Ramadi. Through those difficult months of sustained combat, Jocko, Leif, and their SEAL brothers learned that leadership--at every level--is the most important thing on the battlefield.

I don't think StarGladiator read the book....

This is an extremely useful read for anyone who values good leadership. Jocko and Laif outline their combat experiences in a way that is practical and applicable to any civilian (or milirary person for that matter) who wants to learn how to lead and win. I would heartily recommend this book as it has given me some really great tools for leading not just others around me, but myself.

Accessible to all ages, genders, and backgrounds, and applicable to all walks of life. Good wisdom in these pages.

[Just where, exactly, have they been winning???????]
Great job in Iraq, dudes, in case you haven't noticed, it doesn't really exist anymore as a country. Ditto Afghanistan, where well over $9 trillion went missing! But at least Osama is dead under Operation Neptune Spear, which translates to: be sure to kill him so he cannot answer any questions or inquiries! [FYI: When President Kennedy created the SEALs he did so as a supposed force for good, aiding native insurgencies to promote democracy in foreign countries, not for what it is today.]
