Publisher's Summary

Note: This is an unofficial summary & analysis of Jocko Willink’s Discipline Equals Freedom designed to enrich your listening experience.

This is an analysis of the revised and expanded version of Jocko Willink’s 2017 best-selling field manual. It covers a lot of bases, and offers not only tips on exercise and food, but also mental fortitude and willpower. It is designed to foster a sense of self-discipline using affirmative techniques and habit formation so that audiences can develop a mindset which allows for greater self-discipline. 

Jocko Willink is a highly decorated ex-SEAL, who has served in both Afghanistan and Iraq in live combat operations. His ideas about fitness and discipline come stem from his training and from his time as a commander. He retired from the SEALs in 2010 and has since gone on to be a martial arts instructor and a podcaster. The ideas found in this book complement those found in his first book Extreme Ownership: How US Navy Seals Lead and Win but go further into Jocko’s thought processes when it comes to self-discipline.  

As the title suggests, a large part of the book is devoted to developing a healthy attitude to discipline which helps you to live your best life. It should not be treated as an exclusive field manual for those who serve, as many of the advice and tips Jocko offers are applicable in civilian life as well. Along with his advice on exercise and mental stability, you will find philosophy about death and loss, depression and humility, and how far one should trust their instincts. 

Please note: This is a summary and analysis, not the original book.
