Really enjoyed this listen. As you would expect, plenty of operational details, often small but never insignificant. Always drawing you further into the fight. Willing you to read on. And on. Brilliant writing coupled with first class narration. Highly recommended.

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.

Whilst easy to listen to. the lessons are not easy. Peter Coyote has a great narrators voice with a nice almost rhythmic pattern to his delivery. the content of the 4 agreements is more than i would seek to to do justice to here. Safe to say you must work daily on each agreement. you will fail often but with daily practice you will achieve. enjoy.

We're trying to get something done that really matters to us. To do this we need to work with others. But these others include people we don't agree with or like or trust, so working with them seems impossible - like collaborating with the enemy. What can we do?

I looked forward to listening to this book. And I was not disappointed. the choice of narrator was inspired. He added an air of authenticity to the subject. Thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. A brilliant primer to the subject for the uninitiated. Sufficiently academic to ensure rigour in thought.

Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!

Really enjoyed this refreshing and yet simple approach. Naturally this will not be for everyone. For those willing to fully embrace the concepts in this program. I'd go as far to say "your future success is guaranteed" For the remainder, you will remain where you are and remain as you are.

We're in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called "normal" people get up every day, go to work, do what's asked of them, leave promptly at five, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV. Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don't stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn't everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.
