The Dichotomy of Leadership is an interesting leader book. It begins by telling a story from downrange (military combat missions), then it discusses the principle that particular mission uncovered, and finally the principle then is applied in the business world. What I like about that set-up is that the reader gets to discover the principle just as the author did in that combat mission. The reader sees it play out in different scenarios (military and business). Plus, the principle is laid out very clearly in case the stories were not clear enough. The principles themselves you may recognize. They have been covered before in many types of leadership books, but it is how they are laid out here that makes the difference. The reader first finds themselves on a SEAL mission and then in a boardroom or on a work site in charge of 600 miners. Instead of overexplaining the principles, the authors let the stories explain the concepts for them.
