Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink & Leif Babin Book Summary

An updated edition of the blockbuster bestselling leadership book that took America and the world by storm, two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life.

Sent to the most violent battlefield in Iraq, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin’s 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 Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, they learned that leadership—at every level—is 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.

Great book. Great blend of ideas and situational examples to show examples of application.

Management Based on the Principles of Combat. Great book from an interesting vantage point. The books principals are a apparent and concrete. Would recommend even if your not familiar with the military. Laith Baben’s voice isn’t bad to listen to either.

Great read for a developing leader. Useful and practical information that’s explained in a way that’s easy to understand and apply to one’s own situation. I also found it to be quite enjoyable and informational in regards to the US’s presence in Ramadi.

Great book!. Can be applied in my line of work!!

Pretty good 4/5. I enjoyed the book and the principles that were introduced. I liked the connections to business, warfare and life. The stories and concepts were good. Some of the book was slightly repetitive but I chugged through and would say I liked the book.

Awesome. Helps you realize it’s mostly my fault.

Truly a life changing book. One of the best books I've ever read. It really helped me be a better CEO and a better leader

Great. Great Read

Goof. Good

Solid. A solid book on leadership. I came in a bit skeptical, but was thoroughly surprised by the fundamental principles laid down. And while not anything particularly new, a good reminder that leadership doesn’t require the latest novel anthropology studies or psychology research, but committed individuals with intestinal fortitude to do what’s right.

Masterful. These two retired navy seals tell an incredible story while simultaneously sowing in leadership and life lessons that are incredibly practical and can be implemented immediately.

Great read for everyone. I have implemented Extreme Ownership in my day to day life. Weather it be something small or big, I make sure to always come back and remember this book to be the best leader I can possibly be. Amazing lay out as well.

Great book. Learned alot from this book

Great. Great book for personal development.

Entertaining, inspirational, insightful. Part modern special forces biography, part business book, part self-help. This book fulfills multiple missions in an organized and easily-consumed manner.

Amazing. Hands down the best book I have read recently. Practical in every situation. Thanks Jocko and Lief!

Great Book. Love it. Easy to understand, great examples. This book should be on every entrepreneur list.

A life changer. If you read only one leadership book this year, this is it. Former Navy Seals Jocko Willink and Lief Babin applies combat proven leadership principles to help improve businesses and the lives of individuals. Extreme Ownership teaches: the self-discipline to own all mistakes as an effective leader, leadership as a team dynamic, and how to continue winning. There are no shortcuts to leadership, it requires tirelessly grinding day in and day out and this notion embodied in the t-shirt slogan “Discipline equals freedom" has resonated with the masses. The popularity of this book spawned Jocko Podcast, hosted by co-author Jocko Willink and Echo Charles, which was awarded "Best of 2016" by Apple. As of March 2018, @jockowillink amassed 182.7K followers on Twitter, many of which follows Jocko's daily example of waking up at 4:34AM to "get after it".

Life changing. Motivating and life changing book will get you to reflect on life, family, and business.
