For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events.

Unlike any audiobook out there, with a podcast feature between chapters and after important sections in the book from the author and narrator. It builds a very compelling story in which you stay tuned till the end.
Excellent stuff guys!

Left me wanting more, great to hear him read the highlights of the book.
Didn’t realise he had so many business or global influence.
Initially I thought his voice was boring but the more you listen the better it gets

Why are some people and organizations more innovative, more influential, and more profitable than others? Why do some command greater loyalty from customers and employees alike? Even among the successful, why are so few able to repeat their successes over and over? People like Martin Luther King, Jr.; Steve Jobs; and the Wright Brothers might have little in common, but they all started with why. Their natural ability to start with why enabled them to inspire those around them and to achieve remarkable things.

Turning the traditional notion of parenting on its head, Dr Tsabary shifts the epicentre of the parent-child relationship away from the standard parent-to-child 'know it all' approach to a mutual 'parent-with-child' relationship in which the parent learns alongside the child. Parents unwittingly pass on an inheritance of psychological pain and emotional rigidity to their children.

A great insight into how your lack emotional awareness impacts your children's development.

Have you ever wondered why your kids behave they way they do, it's to do with you, good strategies and read life stories that give the book substance.

The audio is smooth and well read.

In the New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule - what scientists know for sure about how our brains work - and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives. Medina’s fascinating stories and infectious sense of humor breathe life into brain science.

Former general Stanley McChrystal held a key position for much of the War on Terror, as head of the Joint Special Operations Command. In Iraq he found that despite the vastly superior resources, manpower, and training of the US military, Al Qaeda had an advantage because of its structure as a loose network of small, independent cells. Those cells wreaked havoc by always staying one step ahead, sharing knowledge with each other via high-tech communications.

Well referenced book with good examples to highlight key points. I would suggest the author is writing this book as his PhD.
The audio was well read and easy to listen to I thoroughly enjoyed it.
