The #1 New York Times bestseller
Sent to the most violent battlefield in Iraq, Jocko Willink and Leif Babins SEAL task unit faced a seemingly impossible mission: help U.S. forces secure Ramadi, a city deemed all but lost. In gripping firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories in SEAL Team Threes Task Unit Bruiser, they learned that leadershipat every levelis the most important factor in whether a team succeeds or fails.Willink and Babin returned home from deployment and instituted SEAL leadership training that helped forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After departing the SEAL Teams, they launched Echelon Front, a company that teaches these same leadership principles to businesses and organizations. From promising startups to Fortune 500 companies, Babin and Willink have helped scores of clients across a broad range of industries build their own high-performance teams and dominate their battlefields.
Now, detailing the mind-set and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult missions in combat, Extreme Ownership shows how to apply them to any team, family or organization. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic such as Cover and Move, Decentralized Command, and Leading Up the Chain, explaining what they are, why they are important, and how to implement them in any leadership environment.
A compelling narrative with powerful instruction and direct application, Extreme Ownership revolutionizes business management and challenges leaders everywhere to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.
JOCKO WILLINK is author of Extreme Ownership, a decorated retired Navy SEAL officer, and co-founder of Echelon Front, where he is a leadership instructor, speaker, and executive coach. Jocko spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy SEAL Teams, starting as an enlisted SEAL and rising through the ranks to become a SEAL officer. As commander of SEAL Team Three's Task Unit Bruiser during the battle of Ramadi, he orchestrated SEAL operations that helped the "Ready First" Brigade of the US Army's First Armored Division bring stability to the violent, war-torn city. Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated Special Operations Unit of the Iraq War. Jocko returned from Iraq to serve as Officer-in-Charge of training for all West Coast SEAL Teams. There, he spearheaded the development of leadership training and personally instructed and mentored the next generation of SEAL leaders who have continued to perform with great success on the battlefield. During his career, Jocko was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and numerous other personal and unit awards. In 2010, Jocko retired from the Navy and launched Echelon Front where he teaches the leadership principles he learned on the battlefield to help others lead and win. Clients include individuals, teams, companies, and organizations across a wide-range of industries and fields. Jocko is also the author of the children's book Way of the Warrior Kid and the New York Times bestseller Discipline Equals Freedom.
LEIF BABIN is author of Extreme Ownership, a decorated former Navy SEAL officer, and co-founder of Echelon Front, where he serves as leadership instructor, speaker, and executive coach. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Leif served thirteen years in the Navy, including nine as a Navy SEAL. As a SEAL platoon commander in SEAL Team Three's Task Unit Bruiser, he planned and led major combat operations in the Battle of Ramadi that helped the "Ready First" Brigade of the US Army's 1st Armored Division bring stability to the violent, war-torn city. Task Unit Bruiser became the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War. Leif returned from combat as the primary leadership instructor for all officers graduating from the SEAL training pipeline. There, he reshaped SEAL leadership training to better prepare SEAL officers for the immense challenges of combat. During his last tour, Leif served as Operations Officer and Executive Officer at a SEAL Team where he again deployed to Iraq with a Special Operations Task Force. He is the recipient of the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and a Purple Heart. In 2011, Leif left active duty and co-founded Echelon Front, a leadership consulting company that helps others build their own high-performance winning teams.

A must for everyone that aspires to lead and grow.
Lets get some.
Forget about high-sounding, complex and highly-dense managerial theories followed by fictitious case studies, supersets of managerial KPI's and/ or success stories.
These gentlemen push you in the middle of real action recalling combat engagements on the field, give you a feeling about sensitivity of decisions and human behaviour (it's often about death or life) and then beam you back in BAU situations.
This can well be a further plus in addition to other pro's: it's a great opportunity to zero-in on the real and actual importance of issues most people are called to tackle in their everyday life - after all it's not always about life or death.
Key principles are so essential they might sound basic and straightforward (e.g. the statements about a leader's responsibility and accountability). Yet it's appalling, how disruptive (in a positive, evolutionary meaning) they can be in organizations in which they aren't the pillars of corporate and leaders' culture and management style.
Another great point they strike: this manual busts myths about making an impact. The authors clearly present how sucessful missions aren't a simplistic rush out, seek and destroy, but rather a complex mix of careful advance planning, top-down and bottom-up essential communication, coordination, clear sharing of overall and ultimate goals, debriefing.
Thena last strike I feel should be mentioned: buy-in shouldn't be something that leaders simplistically shop for, it's something they earn on the field, communicating and takin' on responsibility.
From my perspective it's definitely a call for action - details and nuances can be fully enjoyed by reading it and trying it out.
Gli autori riescono molto bene a raccontare la loro esperienza nei Navy Seals ed ad associarle ad alcune esperienze di consulenza professionale. Il libro è scritto in un inglese molto fluente di facile comprensione. consigliatissimo ed accattivante.
Examples from military (where lives are at stake) and business experience are very helpful to understand the principles and project them to your own situation.
Wherever you are in the command chain you can assess your work according to this framework and understand what you need to add or remove to be an effective leader in your field.
Sincere thanks to the authors.

This book could literally be 50 pages and make the same points clearly and concisely without all the theatrics like "I spoke on the radio to my commander that we had insurgents in the area, and he replied roger". Felt like a lot of content was made just for the sake of adding pages.
That being said, the principles itself on extreme ownership are solid and I did understand them and enjoyed them. Unfortunately I had to deal with all the military out of context stories to get there. Maybe I would've liked it if my expectations for this book had been different.
I simply didn't find any of the principles on leadership or discipline to be anything more than common knowledge. If you read books on leadership before or on discipline or military books, there doesn't seem to be anything unique here, in my opinion.
If you love War Stories especially in a modern context, this is an excellent book. It's well-written and fun to read. I just didn't particularly find it helpful.
For leadership technique or principles of self discipline, I would not recommend this book. For stories of overcoming challenges in Modern Combat and conflict, I would recommend this book.
But ultimately, given my expectations, I was pretty disappointed. I'm also disappointed at the great reviews it's got because I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here!
* Edit: I went back and read some of the lower reviews and I concur with all of them. I'm glad at least a few people noticed that this book was heavy on bragging and light on principles. The 90% five star reviews are only right if you love War Stories and don't really care about leadership or self discipline.
What I liked about the book ?
1. War stories
2. Simple principles in every chapter
3. Easy read
4. Blunt style of Jocko
What i did not like ?
1. Too many military or technical terms (apart from those terms rest of the book is easy read)
2. Not exactly a self help book. It is especially made for people who like war tactics or war stories as every chapter starts with a story involving Jocko or Leif
- 90% of the chapter is covered with war stories and 5% with lesson learned from that story and 5% with application of that lesson to business.
3. Book becomes boring after reading two three chapters. So I skipped all the stories and read just the "lesson" and its business application. :D
Not exactly a self help book. It provides less principles. You will again more by listening to Jocko podcast. I was expecting something exceptional but book turns out to be just "good" not great. Give it a try, you will learn something different but not much.
