Fantastic book. Very in depth analysis of the psychological cost of learning to kill in war and society.

Fantastic leadership tools!

I utilized the paradigm of extreme ownership during an inspection at work from my higher headquarters today and I could tell in the inspector team's reactions that they were impressed with my decision to own the mistakes. Even though they weren't specifically mistakes that I had made, my lack of ensuring tasks were clearly understood and accomplished, and ensuring that the lowest levels saw the intent of our mission, had an extreme effect on our ability to perform our job as a unit. Had I passed the baton off to the individuals and groups that actually made the small mistakes, it wouldn't have given them the feeling that I cared about the tasks being completed correctly and it wouldn't give me the opportunity to take a more active leadership role.

Very good. This is the 3rd time I've read this !

Absolutely one of my favorite books. Lessons to be learned all throughout and from every angle. I find myself rewinding and pausing to take note commonly. It's also very amusing at times. Great read ! I can't imagine the amount of research need to acquire the precise and accurate information contained within. I will, more than likely, read it a 4th and 5th time in the future.

This was an incredible book. Not dry or uninteresting at all. I thoroughly enjoyed it and actually learned alot.

Outstanding. Nothing like listening to an old vet.

I think I'll listen to it again in a couple weeks. No point in the entire book was boring or uninteresting. Burgin's stories were incredible. Makes me feel small listening to what he had done and accomplished so many years before I was even born. This book accurately portrays the heart and mind of a "Marine's Marine". Something we Marines say about someone that truly cares for that Marine to his right and left and honestly would give his life to defend his brother and his country. A Marine's Marine.. R.V. Burgin. There's no doubt.
What I wouldn't give to have served along side a man like that.
