    A solid base for understanding the US Special Operations Forces-

    A solid base for understanding the US Special Operations Forces-- the author clearly makes the point about the difference between Special Forces and Special Operations Forces, which most people don't understand. I found the historical section interesting. A few of the excerpts dragged on a bit, especially the last one, but overall they were a different way of looking at things. Made the points expounded upon more memorable.

    Disappointed

    The author reminds the reader at least ten times that he instructs aspiring authors how to

    improve their writing skills and to navigate the commercial aspects of being published.

    Somehow this e-dition of the Who Dares Wins was released in a condition that I would

    describe as amateurish. Spelling errors, grammar mistakes, and misplaced thoughts and

    paragraphs can be found throughout the book. I suspect it went to print without the benefit

    of being edited. As sold in the NOOK format, this is definitely not an elite product.

    The subject matter was interesting and informative. Although I have no expectation that I

    will exert the effort to become an elite individual, I have already begun incorporating

    several concepts into my daily thought processes and activities.

    Great insight, not what I expected.

    The book guides the reader through a path to becoming an exceptional thinker or how to become an elite person, by thinking and acting the same way our special forces think and act. A psychological eye opener.
