I think this is a great book and I was excited to listen to it, but the narration on this book is so over the top that it kills it for me.
Either toning down the narration or finding a professional reader.
I can't cut anything, I'm only 30 mins. into it and the narration of the book is making it painful for me to finish it.
Yes. Brandon, through his use of story, teaches us how to be great team players and leaders.
My favorite character was Brandon, he had a rough upbringing, but it was that upbringing that taught him to hold fast and be tough all through BUDs and his Navy career. I also enjoyed that Brandon added an additional narrative to each chapter of the book. I wish more authors would do this. It's this attention to detail by Brandon, that made Brandon my favorite. Osman, was my second favorite, because you never knew what kind of trouble he would get into next.
No. I liked Jon's performance, he wasn't bland like some audiobook performers, he brought out Brandon's character.
While I certainly loved the story about the Germans and their drinking game, I think what moved me most about this book was the fact even though Brandon was telling his life's story, he was also teaching us leadership skills. He is always the teacher.
I highly recommend this book to those who wonder what it's like to be a Navy SEAL. I also recommend this book to those who want to build great teams in the work place. Through the use of story, Brandon illustrate good and effective leadership and how it can motivate a team to do great work. He also illustrates when ego and poor leadership get in the way and how they can destroy a team, training and cost people their lives. Brandon stands up for what he believes is right, regardless of the cost to himself and this is what makes Brandon a the best of the best. Give this book a try, you will not be disappointed!
