What this book taught me
What a delight to feel the softness of my bed sheets under my feet and breathe in my Snuggle smell blanket while picturing the author waking up at 4 am to jump in the cold and shark infested waters of the San Diego Bay Area for his Army training !
I felt so comfy …
The anecdotes illustrating each of the Colonel’s teaching are very inspiring and shed some light on how tough the Army life can be. It makes you realize how lucky we are to have the comfort and security of a civil life with all the freedom that it provides us.
This optimistic manifest is very easy to read. It can even be read within a couple of commutes or bedtimes.
I feel that this Self Improvement book could really resonate to cartesian and pragmatic people who are not fan of edgy esoteric theories (which I love !)
I will sneak it under my Sweetheart’s pillow to see what he thinks of it …💗
Happy reading and feel free to share your feedback in the comment section below ↓ or on my Facebook page !
