This book could literally be 50 pages and make the same points clearly and concisely without all the theatrics like "I spoke on the radio to my commander that we had insurgents in the area, and he replied roger". Felt like a lot of content was made just for the sake of adding pages.
That being said, the principles itself on extreme ownership are solid and I did understand them and enjoyed them. Unfortunately I had to deal with all the military out of context stories to get there. Maybe I would've liked it if my expectations for this book had been different.
I simply didn't find any of the principles on leadership or discipline to be anything more than common knowledge. If you read books on leadership before or on discipline or military books, there doesn't seem to be anything unique here, in my opinion.
If you love War Stories especially in a modern context, this is an excellent book. It's well-written and fun to read. I just didn't particularly find it helpful.
For leadership technique or principles of self discipline, I would not recommend this book. For stories of overcoming challenges in Modern Combat and conflict, I would recommend this book.
But ultimately, given my expectations, I was pretty disappointed. I'm also disappointed at the great reviews it's got because I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here!
* Edit: I went back and read some of the lower reviews and I concur with all of them. I'm glad at least a few people noticed that this book was heavy on bragging and light on principles. The 90% five star reviews are only right if you love War Stories and don't really care about leadership or self discipline.
What I liked about the book ?
1. War stories
2. Simple principles in every chapter
3. Easy read
4. Blunt style of Jocko
What i did not like ?
1. Too many military or technical terms (apart from those terms rest of the book is easy read)
2. Not exactly a self help book. It is especially made for people who like war tactics or war stories as every chapter starts with a story involving Jocko or Leif
- 90% of the chapter is covered with war stories and 5% with lesson learned from that story and 5% with application of that lesson to business.
3. Book becomes boring after reading two three chapters. So I skipped all the stories and read just the "lesson" and its business application. :D
Not exactly a self help book. It provides less principles. You will again more by listening to Jocko podcast. I was expecting something exceptional but book turns out to be just "good" not great. Give it a try, you will learn something different but not much.
