Summary

With four years in the Parachute Regiment, 10 years in the SAS and two Everest summits to his name, no one is better equipped than Jay Morton to reveal what it takes to become the best of the best. Soldier is Jay Morton’s masterclass in mindset, strategy and excellence. 

Drawing on his extraordinary personal experience, it provides in-depth, comprehensive lessons and practical takeaways. Whether serving as an elite soldier, training as a high-level shooter or becoming an expert in HALO (high-altitude, low-opening) and HAHO (high-altitude, high-opening) parachuting, Jay has always strived to be at the very top of the game. More than most, Jay knows that military service develops skillsets you’d never dreamed of having and which can be applied to our day-to-day lives. We are prone to underestimating ourselves, but physical and mental endurance and resilience - as well as realising our own full potential - are well within our reach.

7 hours you’ll never get back!!

Not a autobiography or a self help book. There are no juicy stories or hints on how to pass selection. Jays narration is very monotone and he mispronounces names of people he quotes.
Seriously not impressed and I’m sure the resistance to interrogation phase isn’t as arduous as listening to this book in its entirety.

Disappointed

I was looking forward to this book for a while and even Pre ordered it. However, it was a massive disappointment. Although I appreciate ex special forces cannot tell you much about operations, most tell you certain things about there own experiences. This is more like an average self help guide. Lost interest half way through and although I’ve tried to listen to more over time, I find myself bored and disinterested within a few minutes.

A bit disappointing

After listening to other books on or around the tame subject, this book was a bit disappointing. It feels like it has been crammed full of meaning/ pointless information, not relevant to any part of the book. I paid to listen to the life of Jay Morton, not What feels like 100s of quotes and references from other famous people! Guaranteed that this line below will get on your nerves.

As (blank) once said !!

Inspiring, entertaining and informative.

Brilliant read (or listen). Forget self help books, this is all you need! Well structured, engaging, humorous, serious, emotive and a true literary gem.
