This is a great book if you have been reading motivation and self help books and you just want to start doing! He's kind of crazy and goes off on some tangents- for example, in the middle of his (excellent) arguments for getting into Jiu jitsu, he goes off on a rant about firearms. He also says things like "some scientists say discipline declines with use" (or something like that). I can find no evidence on line of any scientists saying this, but perhaps it was something along the lines of "once you do something to point that it becomes a habit, it's not discipline anymore" which I did find online.
The thing I loved about this book was it was just so direct and kind of like having a Navy Seal screaming at you "Just Go After It!" It's all black pages with white type, and basically you begin to feel like you should put the book down and do some burpees and go to bed so you can get up early. He's right that a lot of people spend too much planning and not enough doing. Recommend for anyone in a slump that can handle the white typeface and the excessively macho and somewhat disturbing imagery.

Little more than a coffee table book with reductive platitudes and pictures of sweaty gym equipment.

For how many pages can Willink tell us to get after it? If you haven't received the message allow me to re-iterate:
Get. After. It.

I adore books that tell me to get off my butt and do the work. Action is the only way to get what you want, and it takes a lot of effort. So refreshing in this time of stupid stuff like The Secret and other useless books that make you rely on wishful thinking and other woo-woo stuff. Get out there and do the work! This world needs people who make things happen. Make their dreams come true. This book is a great guide to how to be a person of action.
