In Extreme Ownership, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin share hard-hitting, Navy SEAL combat stories that translate into lessons for business and life. Jocko and Leif served together in SEAL Task Unit Bruiser, the most highly decorated Special Operations unit from the war in Iraq. Through those difficult months of sustained combat, Jocko, Leif and their SEAL brothers learned that leadership - at every level - is the most important thing on the battlefield. Now they teach these same leadership principles to companies throughout the business world.
Outstanding, an actual 'Good Times' read

90% war talk 10% leadership principles
Lots of rubbish about the Irak invasion for example in a 40 min chapter you get 32min of rubbish war/invasion talk and 8 min of leadership applied in business.
Returned it, couldn't finish it.
Good presentation by authors though
30min summary would suffice
