I could sum up this book by using the Nike slogan...Just do it. I hesitate to say this because he appears to be such a beast who steamrolls through any obstacle. A good guy to have as your leader, but not so great when it comes to motivating through a book. This book is full of statements that exhort you to push through and ignore the distractions. If you are a Jocko type, it doesn't relate to you , because you are already doing it. If you are like me and looking for a push to help you use discipline in your life, telling you to just get on with it is not going to help much. Maybe I finished the book out of fear that he would have my address and beat the crap out of me if I didn't get going!
