    " This was my first ever Audio Book.... and all I can say is wow! This was a GREAT leadership book and it help me understand things from a different angle. I wish i would have had a note pad to write down key points because there are so many that you want to remember. I can't say I found myself not paying attention, it always had me paying attention to what was being said. I have been recommending it to friends as I was listening and I will continue too!! "

    " This book was decent. Many great parallels illustrated between business and paramilitary. Some parts were repetitive, however, I believe overall worth, worth the time. The book also provided what I'd call gold nuggets for life even as it applies to family, friends and aquintences. "

    " Extreme Ownership was recommended by a few friends but I was Leary about buying the audio book. It was my first audio book purchase and I must say I was pretty happy first of all with the whole process of buying the audio book. The web site was easy to navigate, easy to pay for, download and ultimately list to on my I Phone. I work in a para military organization so some of the principles were valid. One part that doesn't fly for most para military organizations is the ability to pick your own team. I was glad the writers of the book actually read the book. I would recommend to a friend. "

    " Extreme Ownership is not merely another book on leadership but provides a new paradigm on how to approach and execute your role as a leader. The concepts discussed in the book are laid out thoughtfully and carefully to help any leader, at any level, apply these principles to help an organization be successful. As a former Marine, I am captivated by the stories, insights, and military-to-civilian applications presented within the book. Extreme Ownership is a must-read for anyone desiring to stand out in their leadership role. "

    " This book I believe tried to bridge the lessons learned in combat to the workplace, but I think what is most important that I would have liked to understand more is the motivational aspect. In the day to day world, we know that it can be a struggle to motivate your workforce from time to time. The Seals are on another level, based on patriotism and brotherhood, where the motivation is constant. It would have been great to gleam one or two pointers into how the Seals motivate their team and how I could possibly apply those tools to say an accounting team. Nevertheless, I still found the book an entertaining and useful read. "
