Publisher's Summary

Fifth grade was the worst year of Marc's life. He stunk at gym class, math was too hard for him, the school lunch was horrible, and his class field trip was ruined because he couldn't swim. But what was the most awful thing about fifth grade? Kenny Williamson, the class bully, who called himself the "King of the Jungle".

When Marc's mother tells him that his uncle Jake is coming to stay for the whole summer, Marc can't wait. Uncle Jake is a for-real super-cool Navy SEAL. And Uncle Jake has a plan.

He's going to turn Marc into a warrior.

Becoming a warrior isn't easy. It means a lot of pull-ups, sit-ups, push-ups, squats, swimming, eating right, and studying harder than ever before! Can Marc transform himself into a warrior before school starts in the fall - and finally stand up to the King of the Jungle himself?

    "Thank you Jocko"

    Thank you Jocko, for everything. Also, my wife was 9 months pregnant and I gave her some white tea to drink. All of sudden her water broke, but instead of going to the hospital she just started doing burpees until she delivered a healthy strong boy, who then also started doing burpees.

    "REQUIRED READING"
    Where does Way of the Warrior Kid rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one is at the top. Look, it's a "kid's book" in it's format, but it's also an excellent distillation of what Jocko (and Leif) put forth through their work: Echelon Front. Also, what Jocko is getting at so often with his podcast. If you have sons...scratch that...children, this should be required reading.


    What other book might you compare Way of the Warrior Kid to and why?

    Can't think of one


    Which character – as performed by Thor Willink and Jocko Willink – was your favorite?

    Mark all the way. Couldn't have been better or meant more to have Thor Willink read the part.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I think it's Jocko's job to come up with that one.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. If you have children and anything remotely related to self-esteem, discipline, respect and responsibility are important to you, read this to your kids.

    I like listening to books, all kinds. I'm not a professional so I can't review books well. I'm blunt and try to help.

    "Don't have a kid to apply this to, still liked it!"
    What did you love best about Way of the Warrior Kid?

    The narrators are on point! They go over some really good lessons that are practical. It gives good insight to what a kid could be going through.


    What other book might you compare Way of the Warrior Kid to and why?

    .. Nothing comes to mind.


    What about Thor Willink and Jocko Willink ’s performance did you like?

    Everything. I really like Jocko though.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All the kids making fun of him for not being able to do pull ups.. Those kids suck.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't have a kid I can apply this to and I still throughly enjoyed the book.

    "Get both the book and Audio! Simply Awesome."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Way of the Warrior Kid to be better than the print version?

    I think it compliments the book every well. They are both solid investments for you and your kids.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mark the little kid who was read by Jocko's son.


    Which character – as performed by Thor Willink and Jocko Willink – was your favorite?

    They are both good! Seriously. I thought it was hilarious when Jocko was talking as Marks Mom, I literally laughed out loud!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Discipline Equals Freedom.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be passing this book out to all of my friends who have kids. This will be the first book I read to my kids. I think this book is more important than those Dr Seuss books. This book gives kids and adults alike a guideline and direction in life - something a lot of kids want but never have. Jocko - Thank you for writing this book. It was surprisingly entertaining, and the lessons that you learn from this book have me fired up. As a 26 year old, reading this book, I can tell you I have benefited from it. I want to become a Warrior Kid/Adult..and now I know how to do it now. This will change a lot of kids lives........the future is looking bright.

    "Not just a kid's book."

    While I would recommend it for kids this 39 year old kid got a lot out of it as well. Inspiring and a tale a lot of us lived as kids.

    The only downside of this book was the short length but totally worthwhile.

    "My son didn't want it to end!"

    Such a great book, my eleven year old was riveted, listening and learning so much about discipline, respect, courage and humility.
    He wanted more and really hopes that Jocko (or Thor) can create a sequel to this book and keep the story telling going.

    "Excellent!"

    Not just for kids. This book is written such that the message is simple to learn and can be applied by anyone.

    In the corporate world there was a time when writing a mission statement was king of everything, but marketing was behind this message and the message seemed insincere. This book allows anyone, or any team or business, write a code of ethics. This book gives examples of why those codes are important.

    I will listen again.

    "Worth listening to just to hear Jocko as a woman!"

    Amazing book. Great zero to hero story which outlines exactly how your kids can take this journey themselves. My son really enjoyed it.

    Both Jocko and thor have done a great job acting this book out.
