Overview

Put down your sissy drink with its umbrella, get off your backside, and square yourself away. Get fit, get a job, and get yourself some self-respect. America’s favorite, most in-your-face sarge is going to show you how to get squared away like a Marine.

R. Lee “Gunny” Ermey, of The History Channel’s Mail Call, takes time out from telling viewers all about military technology, to tell readers all about life. Men today are facing a crisis of emasculation. Gunny is here to tell you how to fight back and save your dignity: by taking control of your own damn life. First, he teaches you how to get fit, stay fit, and defend yourself. Then, he teaches you how to conduct yourself the way real men do: with assertiveness but also with wisdom and courtesy. Finally, Gunny motivates you to use your new fitness and new attitude to live life like a man of honor: to work hard, reach for high goals, and set an example with your life.

Gunny’s Rules is the ultimate guide for anyone who wants to live life like one of the toughest of the tough—like a Marine.

This book is an easy and entertaining read. Most of the leadership advice that Ermey gives is common sense for any Marine NCO or SNCO worth their salt, but still worth a refresher. This appeal of this book is not limited to those in the MIilitary, I believe that most civilians would benefit from Ermey's advice on leadership and his perspective on the woes facing our great nation. Ermey weaves interesting anecdotes from his time in the Corps, the movie industry, and miscellaneous experiences that keeps the reader interested and amused. I especially enjoyed the quotes the author chose that amplified the chapter topics. His rants were amusing because they were spot on. I Ermey seems like a genuine guy that sincerely cares about America and it's warriors. A great book that will have you shaking your head in agreement with the Gunny.
