Former general Stanley McChrystal held a key position for much of the War on Terror, as head of the Joint Special Operations Command. In Iraq he found that despite the vastly superior resources, manpower, and training of the US military, Al Qaeda had an advantage because of its structure as a loose network of small, independent cells. Those cells wreaked havoc by always staying one step ahead, sharing knowledge with each other via high-tech communications.

This was a fantastic book to go along with a fantastic read by the narrator. I was able to listen at 1.25X speed and it sounded crystal clear. As an Army infantry vet I appreciated this book because from my point of view in Iraq things were very different. I wasn’t apart of this task force but I was part of the big picture. My experience with leadership and teams was very top down as mentioned in the book, it would have been neat to be apart of a different structure like what the task force had. This book is very relevant to corporate America, at least in my opinion.

As a man in a male dominated industry I work with very few women. The women I do work with are all great but after listening to this book I realized that they make a lot of these mistakes. Because I respect the women I work with, I’ll recommend this book as a good read.

I also am a father to two daughters under the age of four and am married to a wonderful woman who happens to work full time as a stay-at-home mom and wife. Coming from a childhood with a dad who worked and a mom who stayed at home as well as similar family structures in extended family groups I know first hand of the mentality that goes along with being a woman in these homemaker roles. My wife and I talk all the time about NOT wanting to raise our daughters who will be our only kids to be “nice girls”. I don’t want my babies to aspire to being a stay at home parent, not that there is anything against it. If that is their choice later in life so be it, as long as they’re happy. This book opened my eyes to tons of ways I can start implementing beliefs and habits with my girls.

I really appreciated this book.

Thanks
