This book will not be for everyone. If you are in law-enforcement, and particularly if you are on a tactical team, this is an absolute must read. For others who are simply interested in leadership training, this book may be a bit laborious to work through. As a member of a SWAT team and holding a leadership position with my law-enforcement agency I was very happy with this purchase.
This book may also be of interest to those civilians with a passion for firearms and tactical training.
If you want to perform better, push yourself harder, or lead people from the front this is the book for you. Paul Howe spent most of his life in our nations top special forces unit where selection was never ending. The amount of discipline, dedication, and determination these individuals have is astonishing. In this book Paul Howe very simplistically and methodically outlines the leadership process he gained from the military and then later perfected at his training school in Texas. Though it is geared for LE or military crowds, the lessons inside can be applied to every profession and for any leadership role. Simply put you will not regret buying this book.
lays things out in a professional ( and military ) manor that show how much the author wants his method to be replicated to better the lives and skills of soldiers and police officers everywhere.
If you see a BMW motorcycle cruising down the road, you can be assured I'm listening to a book from Audible!
I just couldn't get through this book....couldn't tell if the author was trying to get me ready for Ranger School or the business world. Seemed to be heavy on the tactical side, which, if that's what you're looking for would be great. Just don't have the need to setup ambush sites anymore.
