The Navy Seal Art of War by Rob Roy

While the title might imply war, the book is really about life.  This book is about the choices we make, the commitments we take on, and the interaction between others we have.  These things make up who we are and how we live.  The author, Chief Petty Officer (Ret.), explains many of the methods and training that goes into developing a Navy Seal.  Not everyone is physically or mentally able to pass the high demands needed for this elite group but we all can learn something from their training.  The author has design the book into short workable chapters that each chapter focuses on a specific topic.  If we could adapt this method of thinking, improve our communication and apply this to the many issues surrounding today’s businesses and our personal lives, we would see rapid improvements.  Focusing as a team, working towards common goals and being accountable for our actions drive many of the outcomes that we experience.  We can sit back and accept what is going on or you can do as the Navy Seals does and plan, prepare, work as a team, and drive towards the mission at hand.  A small book but full of some of the best advise you will ever see in writing. 
 I received a free copy of this book from WaterBrook Multnomah in exchange for my honest review of the book.
