No one is born a leader. But through sheer determination and by confronting life’s challenges, Ant Middleton has come to know the meaning of true leadership. In First Man In, he shares the core lessons he’s learned over the course of his fascinating, exhilarating life. Special forces training is no walk in the park. The rules are strict, and they make sure you learn the hard way, pushing you beyond the limits of what is physically possible. There is no mercy. Even when you are bleeding and broken, to admit defeat is failure.

I love Ant on SAS Who Dares Wins and was expecting this book to be an inspirational tale of a warriors life, leading by example with the usual bumps in the road. Instead, I gritted my teeth through Ant beating people up for no reason, assaulting the police, dreaming of assaulting people, drink driving (twice in 4 days), being borderline racist, and all round an idiot with little sign of remorse. I expected far better, and was surprised this is the same wisdom filled leader we've all enjoyed watching. Disappointed.
