    Very worthwhile book that covers the life to date of James Mattis, US Secretary of Defense. It bordered on being a hagiography at times, but the connections between events (Kobar bombing, Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, 1991-Iraq/Kuwait war, the 1993 Twin Towers bombing, 9-11, and t...

    ?Mattis and Trump agree that, unlike previous administrations, there will be no public discussion of American military plans or timetables ? Florida author Jim Proser began his professional writing career at age 15 as a city reporter for the Lambertville (NJ) Beacon newspaper an...

    I've always admired the Warrior Monk and now even more so. The book could have been better written but the story of such a dynamic man was very impressive. ...

    You can't go wrong with General Jim Mattis. On a personal basis or on a professional basis, this is the man to emulate. The writing is crisp, reveals things I didn't know (he's from Richland, WA; he got sucked in by the Theranos garbage show; he doesn't like the nickname Mad Dog). Some...

    If you are purchasing this to read about General Mattis's life, this is not the book for you. About 95% of this is about battles led by Mad Dog. This is a good book if you are big on military actions, but not for those who do not like historical events. ...

    This book increases my admiration for the current Secretary of Defense, General James ?Mad Dog? Mattis. With the nickname of ?The Warrior Monk? and his studying of history in the carrying out of war and conflict. His humility, dedication of service, studying of conflicts and le...

    Soooo military heavy. Good writing and I love the insight into Mattis' life but the military scenes really wore me out. However, if you LIKE military scenes (active duty type stuff and strategy) you'll LOVE this book. I liked the inclusion of interviews Mattis has done during the years...

    Good book about a incredible Marine. Heavy on miltary terminology, battle planning, and action, which bogged me down a bit as that's not necessarily in my wheelhouse. That said, it was fascinating to get into the mind of the Warrior Monk, a truly exceptional leader. Semper fidelis, Gen...
