Good listen.

Good content. A little too much product promotion for me. I will use some of these tactics.

Difinitive edition for me

I already own the previus editions of this book. What made me buy this one is that its read by the author himself. Even if the book turned out completly the same as the last version it would be still worth having just to hear Mark narrating his personal experience and thoughts. Luckily there is new content added as well so win win.

Great book, and performance by author

Better than the online content in my opinion. Great compliment to the other seal books like extreme ownership, and raising men. Pace at 1.15 was perfect for me and kept me engaged and interested.

Game Changer!

After listening to Mark Divine’s philosophy I was immediately drawn to his story and convictions. His book outlines his own personal experiences (failures & triumphs), and will help you cultivate a way of life that leads towards excellence and rewarding challenge.

I purchased some of his other books after reading The Way of the SEAL and have loved them. I am looking forward to one day grinding through his Kokoro camp!

Great Resource to become Elite

Some said that running a business or taking some kind of challenge is 80% mindset and 20% skillset. The skills can be learned but what can make you stay longer and face those challenges is what's inside our minds. I'm applying slowly some of the rituals I've learned here like waking up early, box breathing, visualizing, etc to develop mental toughness. It will be a slow, painful but rewarding process. I am replaying this book since there are more nuggets in here. Thank you Mark for sharing your stories, experiences & lessons learned. Now we can all have a shot to become Elite like the SEALS in our own world and way.

Great book. Simple and effective ideas.

I don’t usually write reviews but this book needs recognition. The audiobook is good because Mark reads it himself, I also have the paperback so I can get it into my head better.

The exercises are easy enough for anyone to do but effective and progressive in design. He also has some documents for download related to the book material including a journal.

I’ve read a ton of personal development books that I felt were a waste of time. This one has the power to change your mindset quickly and permanently. Still working with the practices and excited to see even more results.

I always feel like there is only one book you will ever need, most people say “the Bible” so now I say two books. The WOS should be one of those books. Thanks, Mark!

This was exceptional!

Thank you Mr. Divine for such on-the-nose in your face functional useful knowledge. I have tried listening to many audiobooks in this genre, and most are filled with fluff and hyperbole. This book, and the audiobook, are exceptional and concise, to the point. I recommend this to all my friends.

Thank you Sir!

Boring

Did not like this book at all. Dry with basic information that repeats itself over and over. Lots of “duh” common sense information

Way of the Seal

Having read the book when it was originally published, the tools it provides are insightful and very useful, a must if your serious about life long development, coupled with the e-course a powerful tool, you got to give the guy credit, he has style - one of the best I have ever read.
