About the Author

Jocko Willink and Leif Babin served as U.S. Navy SEAL officers in the toughest urban combat mission in the history of the SEAL teams. Their unit remains the most highly decorated special operations unit in the Iraq war. After returning, Babin and Willink built advanced Navy SEAL leadership training for the next generation of SEALs. With lessons learned from the battlefield they formed Echelon Front, a leadership training company, that teaches others to build and lead their own winning teams.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mind shattering book
By Alok Kejriwal on 24 March 2019
'Extreme Ownership' (How U.S. Navy Seals Lead & Win) - Book Review.

The CENTRAL tenet of this book that runs throughout its course is "Extreme Ownership". It means that as a leader, no matter what happens, WHO makes a mistake, ONLY you are responsible.

This book made me happily uncomfortable. In a high stressed job like mine (running a mobile games company), there are massive mess ups DAILY. I get very frustrated, angry & sometimes just plain defeated. 99% of these errors happen due to carelessness, lack of attention, lack of following process etc.

THIS BOOK SHATTERED MY 'Oh I'm stuck; What do I do' & made me realise - ONLY I am responsible.

Note that the book mentions that getting rid of bad managers or incompetent workers is ALSO leadership - so that's what Extreme leadership IS vs trying to make do with blame, shame, some gain.

The chapters are all set in Iraq & end with 'principles' & live business case studies (the SEALS who wrote this book Jocko Willink, Leif Babin are now biz consultants).

The book has some fantastic takeaways:

A good leader is "attentive to details but not obsessed by them"; "aggressive, not overbearing" (something I must learn).

Tip: Chap 1 & 2 are slow; don't quit reading.
