In this updated edition of the blockbuster best-selling leadership book that took America and the world by storm, two US 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.

Since its release in October 2015, Extreme Ownership has revolutionized leadership development and set a new standard for literature on the subject. Required reading for many of the most successful organizations, it has become an integral part of the official leadership training programs for scores of business teams, military units, and first responders. Detailing the mindset and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult combat missions, Extreme Ownership demonstrates how to apply them to any team or organization, in any leadership environment.

Marc Andreessen recommended “Extreme Ownership” as one of the recent good reads. It codifies the abstract and unspoken best practices of ownership in an elegant manner. Read more at

This book is ~60% about the Seals and combat situations; the remainder about leadership. At times it reads like an advertisement for the Seals. It contains some good leadership advice that can be applied beyond a military setting. I found the tone of the book to be very macho and written with a level of arrogance. Lots of points repeated throughout.

Leadership principles are very similar across industries regardless of the profession. Leadership is more of a social experience, so it's always rich with situations, especially in military where you need to interact with team mates, direct reports , leaders on daily basis, this is why the book is full of so many important leadership lessons and situations.
The organization of the book is really nice , each chapter starts with background/story then follow with the principle and at last business application, this is a very organized book.
The principles and lessons here are great, really priceless.
But when it comes to reading books no one can memorize an entire book or even 50% , you usually remember the effect those books leaves in you, probably one idea or two, that said,
It will be hard to remember one or two main things only from the book, it's too much details , too much principles , too much situations, that maybe useful but one of the most important criteria of any book is idea cohesiveness, the principles in the book are overlapping but not cohesive.
The overwhelming words that echoed in my head after reading the book (because of the excessive usage through the book) are "Iraq, ramadi, solider, commander, battle, enemy, war" , you will need to go a little bit beyond those overwhelming words to benefit from the book.
