I found the interjection of the author's comments before each chapter very distracting. It interrupted the flow of the story and adds no value as he covers what the coming chapter covers.
Writer does not speak before each chapter. Drags the story out and takes away from it. Let the narrator tell the story.

Jon is fine the only problem I had was with the writer putting his to cents in before each chapter.
If it could flow with the story but not if the writer is involved with the talking on the audible.
Fluctuations in audio and some parts repeated immediately after 1 another (maybe 6 times)
That said Webbs dedication and sacrifice will at points bring you to tears and laughter! Thank you sir.
This was an awesome book. I actually read his second book first then had to get this one. It's kinda sad that he talks a lot about Chris Kyle and Glen Doherty which have both been killed since this book was written. You can tell that both of these guys were good friends of Brandon's and it was sad to think about that as he talked about them.
I'm very pleased with the audible book. Written and narrated very well and I specifically appreciate Brandon's comments between chapters and the anecdotes. In spite of the dysfunctional political system we have, we can count on the Warriors and sheepdogs like Brandon and friends to keep us safe from terrorists. All we lack is the political will to use them when required.
It wouldn't be fair to give away the true meaning of this books' title or its warrior authors' code, prior to an opportunity to listen to each chapter. Brandon Webb is yet another prize talent from the teams with lessons to afford anyone willing to become the best version of themselves a blueprint to transcend tactical to practical, be one a SEAL or a shoe shine slave...what's your red circle?
I was apprehensive when seeing all of the other reviews, and thought I should hold off and just buy the actual book. I'm glad I did get the audiobook, though.
In spite of some errors in terminology by the narrator, the story makes it worth buying. I loved the prefaces for each chapter by the author, Brandon Webb, where he added some good detail. I would recommend this book, in spite of the narration errors.
A gripping story, with practical commentary on the effects of good and bad leadership, and tips on how to instruct and motivate adults to learn and become their best. Narrator was good, but editing was jumbled at times. Could have done without the author's own commentary prior to each chapter.
I'm grateful there are a few guys who will tell their stories by writing a book. The news & Hollywood doesn't give these guys enough credit for what they've done for this country. I liked how he told a little bit about the locals in Afghanistan as well. The American people just don't understand their struggle with the Taliban as well. If more American's knew these things it would make us even greater. Thanks to the author for writing this book & the extra funny & awesome stories for us audio book types.
