This is an outstanding book that really characterises the very principles that, when honed, molds a successfull, all around individual in a dynamic world.
If you sit, read, take in and apply the words that Kelly writes, it will easily start building upon the basic groundwork for becoming a more refined individual. Even if you consider yourself to be at your prime, you can never stop learning - and learning from other people is probably the best way to learn.
From reading the words that Kelly has written, I now garnish a huge amount of respect for where he is today by where he came from. His dedication for laying out these principles that sharpened himself into a highly dynamic and motivated individual expresses to me that he is truely a man of inspiration that challenges himself on a consistant basis.
Duty, Impeccability, Passion, Perserverance, Planning, Teamwork, Loyalty, Flexibility, Selfless Service, Integrity. All of which, we as humans should constantly strive daily to refine each of these aspects of our life. I can not express to you how important it is to keep working on your personal and professional development for your personal life and your career. Stay Motivated and Stay Persistant in your dreams.
As for the style of the book.
I got this book Friday night and I started reading it immediately. I really wanted to find out what built Kelly to where he is right now, and what he really values from his experiences by his principles.
I simply tore through the book. I really couldn't put it down, honestly. I read a quarter of it friday night and came back to it saturday night to finish it up. It is very easy to the eyes and very easy to become captured by the writing. A well developed book and I would definitely recommended it to be put in your professional development library at home!
I volunteered 4 years of my life to the Marine Corps (01-05) and in this book is everything I stressed as a Marine and pushed my Marines under me to understand. These are truely the fundamental building blocks to your professional future and you should always be aware of improving yourself.
Overall, for the price, you can not beat the experience shared within.
