To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Got both the books by Jocko Willink for my Son. He love the book as it is very relatable to things all kids face. It's so cool to sit close with them at the end of the day and read about things like the importance of honor, discipline, courage, teamwork, and a moral code.
It is a simple read, hardly takes 3-4 hours. Yet the clarity with which the author has presented his ideas is something missing in most of the self-help books out there. This is significant for adults as well, so I would recommend everyone to give it a shot. Better late than never.
Fantastic book for kids...Gifted it to my 9 year old niece who loves the Wimpy kid series..This book changed her idea of being a wimpy kid to a warrior kid which is the real life fighter kid attitude...She sees me as Uncle Jack :D
All of the wisdom of Jocko Podcast has been distilled down into this book. I have been working out, eating right because of the discipline mindset Jocko talks about. It is one of the best investments that you can have in yourself. Recommended reading for every human.
I ordered this for my son after it was reccomended to me as a good book to inspire young boys. As he isn’t a big reader, in fact he has to be pushed to read anything, I was expecting to have to read a bit to him and cajole him into picking up the book. I gave it to him and said he could read for as long as he liked in bed, expecting to go up 20 minutes later and find him asleep. Instead, he came into my room around midnight to tell me he had read the entire book! I’ve never known him to read more than 10 minutes at a time so he must have really enjoyed this. Hopefully he also picked up the really positive message about how achieve what you want through working for it!
