I bought this for my daughter, but I decided to listen to it and I was suddenly flooded with business ideas!! I'm 53 years old and I am now on the cusp of some great ideas!! Excellent "read"
For me, it was the author's prologue on how he got to this point in his own journey. It was inspiring.
Sounded a bit robotic, but nonetheless, a good narrator.
It's 13 hours, so I could not. Plus it's something you need to listen to and then digest.
This information is rich; it's valuable. The most important component to any MBA is the student. How hungry are they? You can have all the Harvard and Yale MBAs you want, but unless the individual is proactive,....
I love his no nonsense approach to this life he has chosen. He loves it and it's clear he loves it.
That less than perfection in this line of work is unacceptable to the individual, even if it's forgivable with the team as a whole.
He made me realize that these guys have to face their fears and repeat the actions over and over until they no longer fear them. In other words, keep doing it until you love it. Then do it some more.
Also, he coined a term that he was more comfortable with discomfort than the other way around and I could relate to that. My line of work is NOTHING compared to what these brave souls do, but I could understand nonetheless.
My schedule only permits me upwards of 1 hour at a time, but I must say, I want to find any reason to turn my iPhone on to listen to this guy. He gives out NO SECRETS. So anyone who claims he is unpatriotic, obviously hasn't read the book. This book is really about the type of person that becomes a Navy Seal. These guys are amazing individuals!!
