Summary, etc.:
During the brutal crucible of Navy SEAL training, instructors often tell students to "embrace the suck": lean into the suffering and get comfortable being very uncomfortable. Gleeson teaches you how to transform every area of your life, the Navy SEAL way. He breaks it down to a Challenge-Commitment-Control mindset, and provides an actionable road map that empowers you to expand your comfort zone in order to live a more fulfilling, purpose-driven life. -- adapted from jacket
