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.

It's misleading to title this book "first man in" when there is literally no content from his time as a point man in the special services - which is what I purchased the book to hear about.

Instead it's an aggressive self-promotion, packaged as leadership lessons, with every other sentence beginning "I knew..." or "I sensed..."
