Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual Mk1-MOD1

by: Jocko Willink (0)

In this expanded edition of the 2017 mega-bestseller, updated with brand new sections like DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY, SUGAR COATED LIES and DON'T NEGOTIATE WITH WEAKNESS, readers will discover new ways to become stronger, smarter, and healthier.

Jocko Willink's methods for success were born in the SEAL Teams, where he spent most of his adult life, enlisting after high school and rising through the ranks to become the commander of the most highly decorated special operations unit of the war in Iraq. In Discipline Equals Freedom, the #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Extreme Ownership describes how he lives that mantra: the mental and physical disciplines he imposes on himself in order to achieve freedom in all aspects of life.

Many books offer advice on how to overcome obstacles and reach your goals--but that advice often misses the most critical ingredient: discipline. Without discipline, there will be no real progress.
Discipline Equals Freedom covers it all, including strategies and tactics for conquering weakness, procrastination, and fear, and specific physical training presented in workouts for beginner, intermediate, and advanced athletes, and even the best sleep habits and food intake recommended to optimize performance.


The Reviews

Need or would like some straight forward, no BS motivation that every word read will make you hold yourself accountable, this is the book.The way it is written, allows for an easy read; above all, it rewards like Jock is actually speaking with you. I have bought this book for friends that asked for a reference on leadership, accountability and just plain ole a literary kick in the rear type book. It’s a must have.

amazing writter he will change your life!

It's a lifestyle guideline not a book.

Jocko keeps it real and doesn’t mince words. I read this book in one day and it provided some helpful wisdom to share with my sons.

Awesome book, love how it was made. I got the hard cover, which I recommend!

Great quality and wisdom.Definitely recommend.

This review is for the hardcover "Mk1-MOD1" edition. In short, this is a miniature coffee table book of aphorisms (or short quotes). If that's not what you're looking for, look elsewhere. Jocko has some novel-length training manuals if you want those. This book is very visual, so it's not good in a Kindle edition. Get it hardcover, or not at all.So what is "Discipline Equal Freedom"? It's a semi-pocket-sized tome of motivation. The idea is to present Jocko's core ideals in a digestible form. Jocko blends stoicism and American patriotism into a some ultra-powerful quips. Things like, "Step. Step. Go. Now." or "YOU WILL WIN". Jocko's hope is clearly that if you read two pages of aphorisms, set the book down, and never pick it up again because you're busy changing your life, that would be "GOOD."But what is it really? It's black and white. Jocko likes monochrome. You end up with a lot of white on gray, gray on black, and so on. This means the book is not always super high contrast, and that's a challenge for some people. For the average person though it's perfectly readable. It's often white text on a black-and-white photo of something motivational, like Jocko's home gym covered in sweat after a workout. The words are simple and direct. Jocko says why he's doing this in the first pages, and the rest of the book is just supplemental material to the central point - basically, own your life own. Don't wait. Go.The mk1 edition, if I'm remembering the first printing correctly, seems to have some more readable contrast throughout. It seems like there were some tweaks. There is supposed to be extra content too, but without having them side-by-side I can't really tell the impact. The important thing to me is that I wanted this book, and this is the best edition as of writing.So it's 247 pages of aphorisms. A picture of Jocko, with words telling you to work out and eat right. I like it. If you need further details, there's plenty of references on what to do on Jocko's podcast and in his other books. He even makes a series of kids books, so his material can suit people of any age. But this book is clearly targeting his adult audience, and people who need some quick pick-me-ups. If you'd like to be able to thumb open a page, and read Jocko telling you to "Grab time by the throat" this is the book for you. Recommended.

Inspirational. Written in a nontraditional way as others have said so I consider this a coffee table book.
