Publisher's Summary

The storm gathers as we sleep. Despite vast amounts of blood and treasure expended since 9-11-2001, America and her allies are losing the war against Islamist violent extremists. For the first time since the War on Terror began, Green Beret Scott Mann, an original architect and implementer of this strategic program, reveals an immediately useful strategic framework to defeat ISIS, al-Qa'ida, and even criminal elements here at home. This isn't theory, this program started by Green Berets in the central highlands of Vietnam and mastered in the dusty villages of Afghanistan, holds the key to defeating Islamist violent extremists.

    Story
    "Identity the problem before it can be solved"

    This is a solid work from a solid senior operator. He relates the challenge of working in an insurgency and relates it to what can be done on our own front door.
    The power of story and sharing the narrative is the basis of my own mission philosophy as I move forward in my Afghanistan mission as well as in my business.
    Don't pass this book by because you are not in the military or have anything to do with counter insurgency. You will find value in these words.

    "Amazingly informative and eye opening"
    If you could sum up Game Changers in three words, what would they be?

    A Logical Intelligent Pan


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author/narrator is the character, we owe a debt to our soldiers and their families we can never repay!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I greatly enjoyed the fact that the audio book was read by the author, as it gave greater credibility to hear it directly from the Author. The additional commentary, the candid way he spoke, and the upbeat and fluent dictation all added up to an enjoyable book for a very serious and important subject.


    Any additional comments?

    I love to read, and when I can not take the time to read I always have an audio book going, and this is a GREAT read and listen!

    Like most Americans our family is not part of the military family, and we do not truly understand what is going on in the world, and I am realizing the narrative from the TV news is not the reality of our world.

    The plan "Going Local" is so logical, the examples of the success are compelling, this plan seems to be a proven solution to combatting violent extremism and protecting Americans and the world.

    We need to wake up and become informed from those who live it, have sacrificed for us, and have been there, not taking what our politicians and news outlets say as the true picture of the threats on America and the world!

    I see applications or opportunities for the "Going Local" approach in my past business experiences, and immediate opportunities in the company I work now. I have therefore purchased hard copies of this book and sent them to our executive management team.

    Thank you Lieutenant Colonel Mann, and to all of our military and their families for your service and sacrifice.... We are safe and free because of you!

    TS & Family!
