this book. I've read over 50 volumes on military history from the great fictional Jack Aubrey RN series to WWII, up through the battle of Faluja
The first third has a lot of background which gives a good background on the area and history. The story is depressing to see how much blood and money is wasted in war.
I wish the book would have been narrated by someone other than the author (the performance is not bad, but not great).
This one is an exception. It is a quick read/listen (as I knocked it out on a flight to Asia), and many of the concepts are spot on. For anyone building a business or trying to make their business better, this is a great resource.
After reading it, and digesting many of the concepts, I've assigned it as mandatory reading for my staff and recommend it highly to my business partners. Had I read this years ago during my first start-up, I possibly would have avoided many costly errors and mistakes. In the end not having NISI as a resource to reference probably cost me and my initial investors several million dollars.
I'd highly recommend you pick up a copy.
I have to say I'm not much into mind over matter but having had a "bad back" for the last twenty years I thought I'd give the book a try. All I can say is that it worked. It took a good six weeks for to completely eliminate my pain but it did. I'm not sure how it worked but it did.
As a result of the book I've been back pain free for more than a year. Well worth the read.
Russell is a very good story teller and the story is strong. It's the best Royal Navy series outside of Master and Commander and the Hornblower books. The three books available on Audible are worth the download and the narration is top notch.
