Publisher's Summary

A former Navy SEAL sniper turned media CEO and New York Times best-selling author teaches business leaders how to make the best decisions under pressure.

Over his four deployments as a Navy SEAL sniper, Brandon Webb learned all about performing while experiencing heart-pounding stress. After returning to civilian life, he started his first business venture - and failed miserably. He realized that his big mistake was neglecting to apply what he already knew about focus under pressure. By drawing on the lessons of his SEAL training and early business struggles, Webb went on to build a second business, a media network called Hurricane, which today has an audience of millions and a valuation over $100 million.

Now Webb deconstructs the decision-making DNA of the most effective snipers and shows you how to develop the same mental acuity in civilian life. Drawing on stories from his own experiences and those of other Special Operations warriors and great entrepreneurs, like Solomon Choi of 16 Handles, Matt Meeker of BarkBox, and Betsy Morgan of The Huffington Post and TheBlaze, he teaches you how to have total situational awareness to stay out of danger and adapt to changing circumstances, to avoid the trap of overanalysis, and to understand that pain is temporary and learning is priceless.

By following in the path of a generation of legendary snipers, you'll find the clarity of mind you need to make key decisions and accomplish your mission, whatever it takes.

Biography/ sales pitch.

I tried my best to get through it. However, the book is nothing more than a biography where the author praises his success. It reads as if the author is pitching his business. A seven hour sales pitch.

Great read - life will not be the same

I'm glad that I grabbed this book on a whim before reading the comments. Man this guy has a small community that LOVES to hate him. he actually mentions it in the book. I have no knowledge of this ongoing feud but I gained a lot of positive perspective from how Brandon seems to have tackled the issue. The books was a compelling read. I didn't want to put it down. I got the book on audible and I'm looking for a notes companion or else I'll pick up the paperback to copy quotes from, highlight, and reference later.

I'm finding myself quite inspired by Navy Seals turned CEOs. There is a clear connection between successful traits.

I also loved Extreme Ownership.

Monthly Replay

I enjoyed the narration and story. This book is a shot in the rear to get you moving, as well as the lollipop reward disguised as reflections of the grind, pain and pleasure of Brando's success.

Must Read

This book will remain in my rotation of books I will continue to use to grow. It’ll be right there next to the likes of Jim Rohn and Dale Carnegie. This is a must read for anyone that has lost there direction, looking for inspiration or just wants to be a better person. My hats off to Brandon, his range of knowledge never cease to amaze me. Thank you Brandon for sharing your story.

Maximum Focus on Minimal Topics

If you could sum up Total Focus in three words, what would they be?

There are many exciting things in the world to be apart of. If you want success (however you define it), minimize your distractions and focus on what you really want. Then go all in on that thing.

Any additional comments?

I have recommended this book to several friends who have recently started businesses. To me, it was well worth the purchase.

This book raises the bar!

Without doubt one of the best books I've ever purchased. Blown away by the authors knowledge of handling business and personal situations with special ops training and experience offering a refreshing edge. The importance of looking after your own body is given credible consideration too. This is a must read and resonated with me on so many levels, particularly the need to be situationally aware in both business and personal life. This book raises the bar within must read business books but also should included under personal development.
