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.

Great book. couldn't recommend enough.

Ant is smart and incredibly self aware. I genuinely feel like I learnt something from this book without it feeling like a self help book.

A series of apparently random murders draws amiable, old-school Detective Mick Matlock into a world of sex, politics, reality TV and a bewildering kaleidoscope of opposing identity groups. Lost in a blizzard of hashtags, his already complex investigation is further impeded by the fact that he simply doesn’t ‘get’ a single thing about anything anymore. Meanwhile, each day another public figure confesses to having ‘misspoken’ and prostrates themselves before the judgment of Twitter. Begging for forgiveness, assuring the public 'that is not who I am'.

I've read or listened to every book Ben has ever written but this one just didn't work for me. it's well written and very clever but it was just too much. if I'd been reading it instead of listening I dont think I'd have gotten to the end.

The Compliance Authority does not take kindly to dissidents. Particularly dissidents who have managed to escape their grasp, not once, but twice. Things are about to get a lot more dangerous for Robin, Jace, and their team. Making it all the more urgent to figure out what, if anything, Nathan is hiding - as well as if their convenient allies are, in fact, allies. Because there's only one thing Robin can be sure of right now.... The farther they walk along this tightrope of a life they've found themselves trapped in, the thinner the line becomes.

I've lovesd the world's of the Tower and Matrous and Patrous but this seems to be written by a different person altogether.

The text is repetitive with the same phrases used so often, the story is just plan unbelievable with them getting away from 100s of people on multiple occasions. Really not her best work which is a shame because I love this author in general.
