No. I think I know what is the content of this particular snake-oil seller's goods.
No actual guides, hints or tools to 'FORGE RESILIENCY AND MENTAL TOUGHNESS', just a prolonged salespitch for his Kokoro-camp. He does mention breathing techniques, which he has relabeled as if he had invented them..
No. This is supposed to be revised edition, something that has been fixed and vetted through. Nope.
Avoid. Just another seal cashing in his trident.
Not as good as The Way of the Seal. It is slower and doesn't feel like new or deeper material although there are newer ideas. With The Way of the Seal you have all you need.
"GREAT BOOK. HORRIBLE READER"
This book is totally inspiring. The narrator that is reading it talks like a robot with absolutely no normal inflection or human emotion, turning something that could be awesomely inspiring into an annoying snoozefest. Almost unlistenable.
"PLEASE HIRE A VOICE ACTOR"
I've tried 3 times to listen to this, but I just can't get through it. The read is horrendous.
There are a number of mispronounced words, for example Ensign, which is a rank in the Navy, and he sounds like he's saying enzyme.
He sounds like he's reading from the book. Which he's is, but he's not supposed to sound like it.
I loved Way Of The Seal. It had great information and was performed very well.
This just makes it near impossible to listen to CDR Divine's guidance and skills. Very, very unfortunate.
"New narrator please"
One of my most highly recommended books on personal and leadership development is distracted by mispronounced words and at times very odd pace, pitch, and modulation. Navy ranks are mispronounced. On plus side it provides mental focus training by forcing listener to ignore narrator while hearing message of author.
"Decent book, horrible narration"
It was listening to a computer read you the book. Terrible experience, despite the underlying content being good.
If you've ever wanted your GPS to read you a book, then this is the one for you. Book cannot even be listened to with this narrator.
"Shares some great insights and techniques - but not in great detail"
Mark Divine has made a career out of being tough not being a writer. His knee deep manifesto on the tricks of the trade to build mental toughness, resilience, and leadership techniques are excellent avenues for the interested reader to pursue. My one qualm is that there wasn't more information given, but since each technique, skill, mindset, regimen, etc. could fill a book, the author is unfortunately left presenting at most a slightly detailed explanation of the overall concept while providing an example or two.
His personal experiences peppered throughout are inspiring, and display the confidence he mentions throughout the book. He is absolutely sure of himself which makes it easy to want to take his advice. Another slight criticism is that his stories almost go out of there way at points to dig into liberal politics. I expect a man of Divine's balanced and in-check emotional state to forego this out of place and distracting fluff.
Overall not a bad resource, the narrator takes an hour or so to get comfortable with but his mispronunciation and unnatural cadence persists throughout the end. By the final chapter, it's more something to chuckle at than get distracted over. I would never listen to him read prose, and short examples within this book as quotations drive this point home, however as he's narrating a rather dry primer on self-discipline, the narration can't really do too much more harm to the source material.
"Strong book terrible narrator"
I wish the author would have read it himself. The betray or sounded like a robot and it was very distracting. It took away from the book and message
Narrarators pronunciation of certain words were strange but all in all not bad. The book gave me several different things to work my thoughts around and go about situations differently.
"Great book! But buy the paperback- the reader is terrible"
I really enjoy the insight in the writing- the specific tools provided and the history. However, I can't seem to get done because the reader sounds like a Canadian robot . It's really difficult to listen to. Breaks and strong pauses after every word .. Really takes away from the content. The book is strong and rugged, the reader should mirror.
I highly recommend this book. Honestly I've read quite a bit of self help books over the years. Commander Divines program is the only one that I would say takes a completely holistic approach and the only one that I have been able to implement and see rapid results from. If you think you are capable of performing at a higher level in area of your life but just aren't sure how to get there buy this book.
