As far as leadership books go, this one is pretty standard, enumerating the usual principles. But, first, it could probably have been about half the length without any loss of fidelity; concepts are reiterated ad nauseam. And second, it would have been appreciated if it didn't regularly read like a brochure - a very long one - for the authors' consulting company. The battle scenes are kind of fun if you like a bit drama now and then, but the regular use of war flashbacks (sorry, couldn't resist) in the explanatory text made them redundant.
I really wanted to find this book useful or even interesting, if you have never worked on a team or been on a sports team you might find some of this useful, otherwise its a strange mix of military leadership ideas from the 1960s and what my granddad thinks happens in an office. In a time when there are many different types of management and workflow methodologies this book feels particularly outdated. I don't think I've ever felt myself cringe so much while reading anything else.
Dont waste your money. As far as teaching you anything about leadership that isnt common sense, it really does nothing for anyone with intelligence. The combat stories are interesting to listen to so thats the only reason for two stars. I have a lot of respect for Jocko, I have seen and heard him on various programs which is why I bought this in the first place but for me it did not provide enough info to warrant buying.
Overall disappointed with the book and it is hard to keep motivated to read it from beginning to end. I read on average 14 books a year and, I found it repetitive and for the beginner if you never served or played in sport teams. The war stories were very interesting and certainly gave those 2 former frogmen more than lessons on survival, resilience and team work in the face of traumatic adversity.
I am a keen follower of Jocko on IG and enjoy his work in various mediums, but I got to be the fan by listening, not by reading the book. I have both books now, but I can't say I've picked up much from any of them.
(If you're looking for a more practical book on leadership, you will not do better than Ray Dalio's "Principles". A gift that keeps on giving.)
Yes, of course, the ex SEALs most certainly know all there is to know about leadership and courage and determination. But their translation of those insights is not very in-depth. After all, these are disciplined people who just go and get it and don't whine or complain about it, but they are also not business people first. I would almost encourage the authors to write less of this "tactical" business novel stuff, but do more actual philosophy writing, interpretation of Stoicism in battle, etc. This content on the other hand is not for me, sorry.
