Publisher's Summary

The Emmy award-winning news anchor of Outnumbered Overtime with Harris Faulkner and co-host of the talk show Outnumbered shares the lessons she learned growing up in a military family paying homage to the military ideals that shaped her and showing how everyone can benefit from bringing the wisdom of military service into their lives.

Born into a military family, Harris Faulkner revered her father, a decorated career officer who served three tours of duty in Vietnam and raised his children with the values and ideals of the US military. Accompanying him from posting to posting, young Harris experienced firsthand how success in life was rooted in the knowledge, integrity, and leadership that came from her military surroundings. Indeed, these formative lessons in leadership and work ethic became the guiding principles for her career as a journalist, lessons she credits with her rise to become one of the top hosts on Fox News.

Now, she shares the advice, wisdom, and tools that she absorbed through her military upbringing, examining how these ideals have shaped her professional and personal outlook and how everyone can incorporate them into their own lives. Using her father’s career as the backdrop to her experience, she explores the lessons in courage, duty, patriotism, and responsibility that helped her succeed, demonstrating the truth to the axiom that in military families everyone serves - together. Along the way she also interviews current and former military families, generals and other officers, and tells stories from her father’s career to illuminate how and why the message and mission of the military is so effective at changing lives both on and off the battlefield.

This instructive book, part memoir, part motivational life guide, reminds us of our most important values - the keys to a successful life.

pure inspiration

Not political but inspirational. As a retried military member it was a pleasure seeing our core-values equated to civilian life. Strong reccomend!

Too many rules & backup plans for daily living. T

Too many rules, plans & backup plans to apply for daily living. This is from an upper middle class working woman's perspective with a certain life style and income level seemingly assumed. The 9 rules of engagement didn't seem that clear or always practical. There are some good take aways, but try writing all the details down and then follow it on a daily basis - you could spend all your time on that alone. Rules of engagement - camouflage and how to dress was a stretch for me.

Thank you Harris.

My husband and I listened to your book and found it to be enjoyable as well as inspirational. My husband served 20 years in the United States Navy. Our 2 children are Navy BRATs. Thank you for uplifting our spirits.

Great listen for inspiration and guidance

Loved it. As a fan of Harris's I knew I would likely enjoy the book. That turned out to be an understatement. The stories from her life and from those she found inspirational were riveting.
