    "An absolute must read"

    This book is a must read for anyone who is serious about taking his or her own personal development to the next levels. In my own opinion, the author outlines and describes very practical and world-class methodologies to take control of your mind and drive yourself to peak performance. The book delivers the outline of a complete life mastery system.
    Be conscious that reading this book will not directly solve your puzzle, but if you follow the instructions and do the work, I feel that the proscribed action steps will help you breakthough and acheive the majority of what you want to accomplish in life.
    What you will find in this book is literally worth thousands of dollars. Notwithatanding the value of unleashing your own power, the USN have spent billions training elite performers like Cmdr Divine and you are able to access the cliff notes of that investment - basically for free.
    I am a big fan of Robbins, Dyer and Rohm. The content is easily on-par with these other incredible peak performance coaches. See also Capt Marcincko's non-fiction works to further understand the genesis and evolution of the Seal Mindset.
    Thou shalt not fail! Buy this today and clear the deck to take your performance from average to elite!

    "How to think and live like a Modern Samurai."

    Most people think the Samurai were just warriors, but they prided themselves on being well educated and thoughtful. CDR. Divine does an exceptional job at presenting a modern version of striving to be not just "above average" but to be elite and committed to self-mastery.

    And this isn't just for men. I have instilled these same ideas in my daughters as well as my employees, both men and women.

    A commitment to excellence is NOT gender specific.

    "Embrace the suck!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Way of the SEAL to be better than the print version?

    The audio edition is easy to listen and the narrator is doing a great job, but it is hard if you actually want to do the exercises. The pdf that comes along is just not very complete, so in the end one has to constantly bookmark the important sections or re-listen to it.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    There are several great concepts described in the book that make it very valuable. For example the concept of "Embrace the suck!" You just don't get the same personal growth by going always the easy way. You have to challenge yourself and that is going to be hard, but ultimately very rewarding.

    "Im so glad I got this book because I almost didnt"

    If I can ever get my hands around the throats of the fools who have poor ratings to this book...

    I almost missed this one because i read a couple reviews that said it wasn't what they expected.. Blah blah blah.

    This is a book that literally has the potential to change your life in a huge way. Anyone who says otherwise is a liar or has an ulterior motive!!

    I will draw so much from this!!

    "Very good, though a little too long."

    Excellent product.
    However, it is possibly 2-3 hours too long.
    Despite this small issue. You are better for it.

    Recommended.

    The only issue with this book is that the author isn't next to you, however, he may as well be! Truly inspiring stories of failure and success and the right attitude for both

    "A full guide for living"

    From finding yourself to making sure you accomplish your goals. This is by far the best self-help book I've ever read (and I have read many!!)

    It is the definite guide to know who you are and making things possible, how to develop drive, resilience and mental toughness; how to grow confidence and respect for yourself and from others. In short, it's the best guide on how to be a man.

    Listen to it, read it. Do whatever but do not miss it!!!
