After listening to just the first few chapters i was amazed by the stories and how it teaches you to apply the principles explained to everyday life to not only improve your leadership but also improve your self worth and make you overall a better person. I also love the fact that the offers took "extreme ownership" and were the narrators guiding you through this book. a must read.
