Tough Guys Teach Hard Lessons

If you could sum up Extreme Ownership: How US Navy SEALs Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin | Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review in three words, what would they be?

Gritty authors Jocko Willink and Leif Babin's voices alone would be intimidating if their message wasn't so on pointe. Excellent book on leadership told in an engaging way. With real world examples both on the battlefield and in business, this book was a refreshing and unexpected way at creative solutions for life's and business problems.

good basic summary

good basic overview of the book with the points of leadership but nothing entertaining like the stories or anything else which would generally be the reason a person would buy the book if you're interested in this at all you should definitely purchase the full book it's worth the extra 10 bucks or so

You should listen to audible before you do an overview

At the very least you should get the names of Important People and Places correct.
Unsatisfactory!

Key Takeaways

I appreciate the organization of the narrative. This makes the entire book more understandable as it drops the military language and jargon. While I found the military scenarios engaging I needed the meat of the examples for knowledge and application. This book does that for me. Useful and immediately applicable. Recommended for all leaders new, Old or wannabe.
