Sintesi dell'editore

As a commander of Delta Force - the most elite counter terrorist organization in the world - Pete Blaber took part in some of the most dangerous, controversial, and significant military and political events of our time. Now he takes his intimate knowledge of warfare - and the heart, mind, and spirit it takes to win - and moves his focus from the combat zone to civilian life.

As the smoke clears from exciting stories about never-before-revealed top-secret missions that were executed all over the globe, listeners will emerge wiser, more capable, and more ready for life's personal victories than they ever thought possible.

Terrible narrator.

The book itself is outstanding. I've read it several times. This narrator though, is so annoying that I could barely listen. His terrible accents and ignorance of military terms detracts from the book so much that I'd happily re-purchase this book if it were narrated by someone else.

"IT'S NOT REALITY UNLESS IT'S SHARED!"

I'm going to sound cliche'...however it's my reality. This book changed my life! I'm a 30 year old man now (29 when I first read this.) I lost my father to suicide a few years back. I am married and own a window coverings business. I am a bit of a nomad...I lose myself to lack of wisdom and guiding principles. This book, has had a profound impact on my internal dialect...and a new motor to be an effective human being. This book nailed it...I go back and listen to the guiding principles about every other week in the last chapter. READ THIS BOOK. Thank you Mr.Blaber and please write another!

DELTA Adventures with Everyday Tactical Advice

Would you listen to The Mission, the Men, and Me again? Why?

I will definitely listen again. The depth and breadth of everyday practical applications from each of his stories and missions was very captivating. Every mission he talked about, including the planning aspects, had advice that you can apply in your day-to day life. The overarching theme was to consider how your decisions will affect: 1st - Your Mission, 2nd - Your Men, and 3rd - Me.

He also went into some of the concepts that helped him to understand what he needed to do to become a better operator and leader. "The mind has three elementary phases it goes through when it's thinking: saturate, incubate, and illuminate. although they generally occur in order, all three are continuous processes, so your mind is constantly cycling through all three phases.The most effective approach to a situation is to detect our mind's ability to recognize the life patterns that happen" How you handle and solve problems when you encounter them, will ultimately decide the outcome. Throughout the book, he explains his adventure and ends with a life lesson so we can understand, adapt, and master the future.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Peter Blaber

What about Joe Barrett’s performance did you like?

He did not overdo it when it came to trying to portray the accents of the enemies. The tone and performance was just right.

Spot On

Any additional comments?

If you're looking for a story book collection of battles and adrenaline spiking drama, this isn't that kind of book. The author did a great job in both titling it appropriately, as deciding what to include. I took many notes from the author, and have incorporated his leadership lessons into my personal and professional life. A must read for any junior leader, or senior leader who has lost his/her base.

Horrible Narrator

As an Airborne paratrooper, Army medic and this guy sounds like he's still living at home taking care of his mommy. The sample just isnt enough to get under your skin. Give it 5 mins and you'll know what I mean.

Narrator Betrays Author

I appreciated an insight into the author’s honorable service to our nation and the somewhat obscure leadership points. I found the narration to be a complete mismatch. His voice and affect were an extraordinary distraction that I believe severely detracted from the message as well as the image the author likely intended to project about himself and his comrades. I almost quit/returned the book on several occasions solely due to the annoyance of the narrator’s voice.

Great Book

If you could sum up The Mission, the Men, and Me in three words, what would they be?

Interesting, Gripping, Insightful

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed Pete's lessons learned during his time in the unit.

Any additional comments?

Great book, I have read it a few times and it was nice to listen to it as well. Good story, good insights into leadership, and interesting to learn about that part of our military history too.

among the best

this book is among the best of the many spec ops books that have been published since 911 and is a window into the way the "War on Terror" should, and hopefully will, be fought. all those chicken hawks clamoring for "boots on the ground" should pause and consider the alternatives. small, entrepreneurial groups of highly trained spec ops soldiers are the better alternative.

Another no nonsense look at how confusing war is!

Once again I am humbled that such men live and fight for our country. While written as a list of leadership principles, Mr. Blaber excellently explains how to clear the fog of war and uncertainty. Supporting out of the box thinking due to the latest and greatest information by the folks on the front lines cannot be overstated. A thoughtful and straightforward tale of what it takes to lead some of the most elite warriors in the world. This book is well worth the time investment to read.

Not enough action

Starts well and is generally a good story. Not enough action for me though, most of the book is about lessons learned on mission but fails to detail said mission. Always felt I wanted more detail

When management get it wrong

This is more than a gripping read about special forces and there exploits, it's also a demonstration of how interference by senior management who are egotistical can cause serious cocky ps to escalate, in this case leading to a tragic loss of life. A fantastically well written and read story.

Insightful and crushingly eye opening

A great listen to a story of facing adversity and the hierarchical, egotistical politics within the highest levels of the military. Insightful and crucial lessons for any leader in taking a factual approach to dealing with evolving situations and the consequences of emotion and ego in decision making. Stay in control, share all information with everyone involved and always listen to the guy on the ground.

the inter working of a huge organization like the US army is more exposed in this book then the actual combat.

waiting for the action to start but it never did

pretty much the whole book is just about planning a mission or 2 and then talking on the radio. who ever thought that was a good premise for a book must be one hell of a fun dude at party's 😑

Brilliantly explained

some great lessons in leadership that many in industry could learn a great deal from especially large corporations
