Publisher's Summary

Deliberate Discomfort follows the journey of Jason Van Camp as a new Green Beret commander taking over a team of combat-hardened Special Forces veterans. This true story tells firsthand the intense, traumatic battles these warriors fought and won, sharing lessons learned from their incredible backgrounds.

A cadre of scientists further break down each experience, translating them into digestible and relatable action items, allowing the listener to apply these lessons forged under fire to their own lives. Deliberate Discomfort is the ultimate book on leadership and self-improvement, depicting how these warriors found a way to win under incredible odds with never-quit attitudes.

The authors don't just tell you how to thrive under pressure; they show you how, in heart-racing, first-person narratives. The lessons transcend business, sports, and all other organizational and personal dynamics. Listen to Medal of Honor recipient Leroy Petry's true account of grabbing an enemy grenade in Afghanistan, saving the lives of his fellow soldiers, but losing his hand in the process. Hear what fellow Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg was thinking as he tackled a suicide bomber. Feel what Marine Joey Jones felt as he was flying through the air, weightless, after stepping on the IED that would take both his legs. And most importantly, experience what Jason learned about leadership and embracing discomfort from adversity.

cheese book

garbage book, if I,could go back in time I never would have wasted the money... he's just regurgitating other authors, military buzzwords and sayings... selling out on his experience for a buck.

Horribly Boring

I couldn't get through this without falling asleep. Ridiculously cheesy and the narration is as exciting as a snail race.

Real and Raw

This book has Real, Raw And Amazing stories mixed with science to back the why behind it all. The amount of patriotism behind this entire book makes me proud to be an American. I loved the vulnerability shown and leadership lessons explored. I would give 5 stars but Jason's first week seemed more scripted and sometimes the making it practical section felt more salesy than helpful, which could have been left out. I wish I would have heard more of the authors story as well. But all in all great book and recommended read.

From the battle field to the board room

Exciting, inspiring, and educational. This book moves from scary war scenarios to how the real life heroes involved pushed through these incredible ordeals. It continues with subject matter experts' analyses of what we can learn from them and how we can implement those lessons into our lives.

Excellent

This book provides some great stories highlighting the often heroic work of our Armed Forces, and special emphasis on the Special Forces. It really reinforces many concepts we use in the Center for Enhanced Performance based on Sports Psychology and coupled with real world examples provided some tremendous professional development. I, like Coach John Wooden, believe success is based on our own self satisfaction of knowing we put in the effort to become the best we are capable - this book
Is all about becoming our very best selves.
