Book Reviews


page numbers are misleading3 star

The summary is okay. The total page count is misleading because each page has about two paragraphs. It summarizes each of 12 lessons and that’s it. It then gives maybe 2 more paragraphs on the author’s perspective. For the price, I suppose that’s good enough.35

Complete Ownership!5 star

Noted for their ability to accomplish seemingly impossible missions, the Navy SEAL teams are the epitome of leadership. Extreme Ownership: How US Navy SEALs Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin is a guide to applying SEAL leadership techniques in the civilian world. The main takeaway of this book is that a leader must take complete ownership for those aspects of an organization for which he (or she) is responsible. Two former combat SEAL team leaders, Willink and Babin maintain that teams are only as good as their leaders, egos are obstacles to finding solutions, and discipline in teams results in more freedom for team members to excel.55
