A highly valuable book that is a must listen

This is a valuable book that must be read by anyone wanting to implement changes into their lives in order to become better men and women. Thank you for writing this book and for sharing these stories, Admiral McRaven.

My only issue with the book is that there is a small technical issue in Chapter 5 under Compassion at timecode 08:05 until the end of the chapter. You cannot hear the narration.

Regardless, it was a fantastic book with clear audio in all other chapters.

Chapter 5 is unplayable

I can not hear the second half of Chapter 5 just goes to static. Have deleted and reloaded not solved the problem. This is a real shame please sort this out as you are misselling the book.

Powerful

This book is as powerful as all of the Admirals books. Easy to follow, great examples that leave you in awe of such a great warrior. Sets the bar for what personal development should always be.

10% technical difficulties, otherwise, splendid.

Terrible static in Chapter 5 Compassion in my version. Not sure why?

Otherwise, informative and direct.
Final chapter is moving.
