Publisher's Summary

Deliberate Discomfort follows the journey of Jason Van Camp as a new Green Beret commander taking over a team of combat-hardened Special Forces veterans. This true story tells firsthand the intense, traumatic battles these warriors fought and won, sharing lessons learned from their incredible backgrounds.

A cadre of scientists further break down each experience, translating them into digestible and relatable action items, allowing the listener to apply these lessons forged under fire to their own lives. Deliberate Discomfort is the ultimate book on leadership and self-improvement, depicting how these warriors found a way to win under incredible odds with never-quit attitudes.

The authors don't just tell you how to thrive under pressure; they show you how, in heart-racing, first-person narratives. The lessons transcend business, sports, and all other organizational and personal dynamics. Listen to Medal of Honor recipient Leroy Petry's true account of grabbing an enemy grenade in Afghanistan, saving the lives of his fellow soldiers, but losing his hand in the process. Hear what fellow Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg was thinking as he tackled a suicide bomber. Feel what Marine Joey Jones felt as he was flying through the air, weightless, after stepping on the IED that would take both his legs. And most importantly, experience what Jason learned about leadership and embracing discomfort from adversity.

cheese book

garbage book, if I,could go back in time I never would have wasted the money... he's just regurgitating other authors, military buzzwords and sayings... selling out on his experience for a buck.

The best book I have ever purchased

Just finished this book, I’m about to start it over again and buy two more for my company leadership. Well written, well spoken, well put together, and overall a great book. I learned a lot, it reinforced a lot, and it inspired me. I couldn’t get enough, all I wanted to do was listen.

Give it a couple chapters

I found this book a little bit slow to get into and initially it was not what I had hoped for but I soon found it to be a riveting listen as they got into the individual stories. The way they went at presenting the material was extremely effective and I found the stories original and extremely interesting. Good message that is different from lots of military books as it focused on listening,being vulnerable, surrendering the ego, and seeking out discomfort as the title states. I highly recommend this book.

Surprisingly Good

As a person that has been successful in leadership roles, I've recently struggled finding mentorship and resources to grow my capabilities. My friend, an Army Ranger, recommended this book, but, I was worried a book based on military experience wouldn't apply to me and my goals. My worries were gone after the first chapter. Jason's book is a great resource for any experience level. I even plan to get a paper copy to review topics in detail and apply in my career. This book has sparked a renewed fire where I was feeling stagnant and I'm excited again.
