In the beginning, there was nothing but endless flatness. Then came the Carpet.... That's the old story everyone knows and loves (even if they don't really believe it). But now the Carpet is home to many different tribes and peoples, and there's a new story in the making: the story of Fray, sweeping a trail of destruction across the Carpet. The story of power-hungry mouls - and of two Munrung brothers, who set out on an adventure to end all adventures when their village is flattened.

This is a summary and not the original book. As a former member of the SEAL Team, which is considered to be the most disciplined and advanced military unit in the world, Jocko Willink created an infallible system which has helped countless people introduce discipline in their daily lives. This New York Times best seller provides strategies and tactics for reaching mental discipline as well as detailed workout routines, food intake recommendations and advice on sleep habits.

i was hoping jock would be the reader. he is such a good speaker. i was also hoping there would be more real life examples to provide motivation.

Previous books have promised to describe the combat experience of the World War II GI, but there has never been a book like Patrick O'Donnell's Beyond Valor. Here is the first combat history of the war in Europe in the words of the men themselves, and perhaps the most honest and brutal account of combat possible.
