About the Author
JOCKO WILLINK was a Navy SEAL for 20 years, rising through the ranks to become the commander of Task Unit Bruiser―the most decorated Special Operations Unit of the Iraq War. After retiring, Jocko continued on the disciplined path of success, co-founding Echelon Front, a multi-million dollar leadership and management consulting company, writing the New York Times bestsellers Extreme Ownership and Discipline Equals Freedom, the children's book Way of the Warrior Kid, and creating one of the top-ranking podcasts, JOCKO PODCAST.

This book is very well written and highly organized, in a conversational style. While the content could lend itself to textbook format, it’s not laid out that way. The Table of Contents is something that most readers will ignore. In order to best use this book, especially if you want to make good use of it in the future to access all the information about leadership by unique strategic or tactical point, the T. O. C. will be needed. The great news is that in the Kindle edition, it’s interactive; touch the blue subject heading and you’ll be taken immediately to the text within the book. The reverse is also true; by touching any blue, highlighted header in the text, the reader will be taken to the T. O. C. and be able to view additional items in that heading or subject; an invaluable asset of the Kindle version.
Willink is a good writer and gives salient examples for all his theories. They are highly related to his experiences in Seal Team One. He is warm, and collegial in his approach. The book is professionally edited and easily accessible for reading; for reference as detailed above. The language is clean and professional.
A good deal of time is spent discussing the ego, how respect is earned, not demanded and how these impact true leadership. Success on understanding and implementing these 2 points would create an whole new command of worthy leaders and this is their Field Manual📚
This book much more closely reflects his podcast style. Simple, real world problems with simple, real world discussion of solutions. No long drawn out war stories. It's something I can digest one piece at a time with my morning coffee. And I really feel like I'm "learning by doing" without having to learn the painful lessons myself.
PS I'm a female who has never been in the military and works at an engineering company. Through application of his principles I have accelerated my caree. Jocko is for EVERYONE not just SEALs.
If you’re only going to read one of his books, make this one the one you go to.
Also have fun with the second addition 😏 next time stay on the path, get after it, and get the first adish so you don’t miss out
The book arrived today and my daughter is reading Way of the Warrior Kid. The photo is the result of her leafing through the new book to see how similar it is to what she is reading. As you can see, it is in a little disarray. I'm already presented with an opportunity to learn and lead.
In the vein of being concise, my thoughts on the book are, “Good. Get it. Read it. Get after it.”
