Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual by Jocko Willink

Finished: November 2nd, 2017. Rating: 10/10

Overall Thoughts:

I have become obsessed with the soldier, be they a Roman centurion or a Navy SEAL, a spartan or a Green Beret. Soldiers are designed to be the toughest people on the planet. That is why I love studying them.

Within their lives is a blueprint for building toughness and discipline. And within Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual, we get a look inside the mind of Jocko Willink, the SEAL officer who led SEAL Task Unit Bruiser to become the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the Iraq War. This book is a how-to guide to toughness.

Understand the ideas, see how they are applied, and then apply them rigorously.

Notes:

If I wasn’t familiar with Jocko or his speaking style, I may have completely dismissed Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual. This is why that I think the best way to give you the feel of the book is to get you the aura of Jocko. Remember, understand the ideas, see how they are applied, and then apply them rigorously:
