Excellent!

Very useful advice based on lessons learned in life and death situations. Kyle's humility shines through and is part of what makes this book exceptionally credible.

Exellent Audio Book

I really enjoyed this book as it tells it how it is and is not loaded with a bunch of "academic theories". The book contains a lot of very well written examples of leadership and the breakdown of what makes it great. Additionally, it showcases failures in order to better understand what "not to do". Also, I liked that the author also narrated this book.

AMAZING!

It was a well spoken book, the way it was worded to the way it was delivered was great! I know I’m going to listen to this again and again. I listened to this right after complete ownership but this one was so much easier to connect with it has made a impact on how I lead my guys!

Nail on the head.

This book hit on so many topics that my Sergeant and I talk about on a regular basis. So many of the topics discussed in this book, are ones that need to be implemented by the majority, but unfortunately are only understood buy a small percentage. Fantastic book, have already shared this with others!

Must Read for Leaders

I’ve had the distinct honor to take a training course by Kyle Lamb pretty early on in his transition from military life to his civilian training world. During that week long training, you could just tell Kyle saw things differently; he was 4-5 steps ahead of things & knew what was coming next.

Kyle provided a teaser into his background (extremely humble for an experienced warfighter) which lead me to do some homework and discovered THIS GUY knows his stuff! Fast forward 12 years later to today; Kyle says it up front l, he’s not a scholar but he IS as professional as they come! He provides invaluable insight from his perspectives as a rank & file to the man making critical decisions. Kyle is a tremendous American and his book, Leadership in the Shadows, is yet another testament to his commitment to his love of country... Thank you & God Bless you Sir!

Excellent book one of the best

I’ve always had a lot of respect for Mr. Lamb.
He’s a humble warrior. I learned a lot from this book. His delivery is genuine, and you hear the emotion when it matters. Solid advise, great book.

Absolutely Worthy Leadership Book

Whether you’re military or civilian, this book is worth your time! If you care and see yourself as striving to learn to become a great leader, listen to this.

I’ll throw this one right there next to Leadership Strategy & Tactics by Jocko Willink as absolutely necessary reading. Read, share it, act it, and watch everything change for good.
