    The #1 New York Times bestseller

    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.


    • Self-Improvement Enabler

      By TTobaggen
      This book, and also the Jocko Podcast, are great tools to help people create their own changes necessary for improvement. No "Top 5" or magic pill, just guidance and advice as to where you should direct your own hard work.
    • Nothing New

      By gavin lucerro
      This book contains cornerstones of leadership that have been around for centuries. It is mashed with great military stories that reinforce leadership principles. After that, there is a connection to everyday business world events. If you want to better yourself and hear some great stories about war, this is the vessel that will get you there. The goal is to be better than you were yesterday. Find a book that offers an interesting subject and lays out proven leadership concepts. I enjoy stories about the military and LEO. This was an excellent pick for me.

    • No Nonsense

      By ExtremeCouture
      This was a great, no nonsense read. A lot of bang for the buck that addresses the common issues and concepts of leadership, what makes it work and what doesn't.
    • Excellent Leadership Book

      By Mark Kuecker
      I've been in the service industry for over three decades, owning a franchise business and working at two different franchise headquarters. This book is not only an interesting read of actual events, but demonstrates actual application to leadership. Extreme Ownership is a must read. It's not just about managing people, it's about managing yourself - which ultimately is where responsibility lies.
    • Practical and Genuine Guidance

      By Smith Boykin
      This book is the real deal. There is nothing artificial or gimmicky inside. Jocko and Leif weave practical and practicable leadership lessons throughout entertaining narratives covering their military and business-consulting careers. And they do so with sincere humility, not false bravado. The result is a highly motivational text that shows personal and business leadership (at various levels - not simply the top) to be both an approachable topic and an attainable goal for everyone.
