I have read quite a few self help books and business books and I have always gained pearls of wisdom.  Extreme Ownership is no different.  Getting the right people on the bus and believing in the mission is important for success.  Working the fundamentals, keeping things simple and doing the next right thing establishes a pattern of winning (Make your bed!).

Planning and leading up and down the chain are skills that I need to work on more.  This book provided a good foundation for me.
