Great book, long read (listen). Full of pratical wisdom derived from the war. Good for gradual digestion and re-reads. There were many derogatory quotes obtained from the period that may make it difficult to listen to. That being said, the basic wisdom from the book I find still applicable to the profession of arms.

Third reading, still learning.

This book doesn't motivate me, it drives me. I have been able to make significant positive changes in my life using the techniques and experience that Mr. Goggins imparts. For that, I'm very thankful. Thank you David.

Practical!

The content and narration of the book is really well done; however, the book contains checklists, loads of checklists, which I prefer in type font as listening to checklists is painful for me. I will buy the kindle version as the content, while not necessarily new, is definately presented in a new fresh way, puts loads of great hacks together in one place. For some books I wish I can buy the audible and kindle versions bundled together, this is one of those books.
