Publisher's Summary

For more than 200 years, the U.S. Marine Corps has been a paragon of world-class leadership, excelling in the areas of motivation, training, and management. Semper Fi -- which since its hardcover publication has become a best-selling, business leadership classic -- shows readers how to adapt these proven practices for their own organizations.

Semper Fi goes behind the scenes to pinpoint what works for the USMC, showing readers how to create a training and management culture that brings out the best in all their employees. The book gives readers tough, practical tips for:

  • inspiring individual initiative
  • rewarding hard work
  • encouraging loyalty
  • working with limited resources
  • dealing with change
  • "leading the troops" at every level of the organization
  • "This is not," according to Dan Rather, "one of those mumbo-jumbo, pseudo-philosophical books on leadership. Semper Fi is a book you will actually USE, read, and refer to again and again."

      "Excellent!"

      If I could only run my business this way. As a business owner and a former marine I can see exactly how I should have been applying these "exact" methods to my business. This advice is great for anyone who owns a business or manages one. You don't have to be a marine to make this stuff work for you.

      "FANTASTIC Audio! Loved IT!"
      Where does Semper Fi rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      One of the BEST books i've listened too! Great to understand how the Marines are trained mentally to "adapt & overcome". Very valuable lessons for anyone in business.


      What about Tony Craine’s performance did you like?

      Yes


      Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

      Yes, I actually listened to it twice


      Any additional comments?

      Semper Fi!

      "Borders on Marine Corp Propaganda"

      Having been acquainted with the military my whole life, I was really looking forward to this book, especially considering the good ratings. However, I was really disappointed. This is the book that never ends. The book goes on and on about how brilliant and perfect marines are and this ends up detracting from the leadership techniques that would work great in the business world. I have tremendous respect for the marine corp, but the authors almost do the corp a disservice by making it sound like marines do no wrong, and therefore reduce the credibility of the processes and systems being discussed. The couple of times that there is a hint of events that may not have been ideal, the authors instead focus on how wonderful the officers were at handling the situation.

      The choice of narrator is strange. Tony Craine has a gentle, slightly bland voice that seems at odds with a book about the superhuman beings that apparently are marines. He also takes breaths in odd places which makes it a little stilted. All in all, this book was a disappointment.
