Summary

Deliberate Discomfort follows the journey of Jason Van Camp as a new Green Beret commander taking over a team of combat-hardened Special Forces veterans. This true story tells firsthand the intense, traumatic battles these warriors fought and won, sharing lessons learned from their incredible backgrounds.

A cadre of scientists further break down each experience, translating them into digestible and relatable action items, allowing the listener to apply these lessons forged under fire to their own lives. Deliberate Discomfort is the ultimate book on leadership and self-improvement, depicting how these warriors found a way to win under incredible odds with never-quit attitudes.

The authors don't just tell you how to thrive under pressure; they show you how, in heart-racing, first-person narratives. The lessons transcend business, sports, and all other organizational and personal dynamics. Listen to Medal of Honor recipient Leroy Petry's true account of grabbing an enemy grenade in Afghanistan, saving the lives of his fellow soldiers, but losing his hand in the process. Hear what fellow Medal of Honor recipient Florent Groberg was thinking as he tackled a suicide bomber. Feel what Marine Joey Jones felt as he was flying through the air, weightless, after stepping on the IED that would take both his legs. And most importantly, experience what Jason learned about leadership and embracing discomfort from adversity.

cheese book

garbage book, if I,could go back in time I never would have wasted the money... he's just regurgitating other authors, military buzzwords and sayings... selling out on his experience for a buck.

Just what I needed!

I recommend this book for anyone who feels like they are stalled in their progress toward their life goals or STALLING because they don’t know where to go next. This book is all about action and how to take it.

Horribly Boring

I couldn't get through this without falling asleep. Ridiculously cheesy and the narration is as exciting as a snail race.

A good story, but misses the mark

Really interesting story that details the author’s impressive successes throughout his military career, and how he used his experiences to improve himself mentally, physically and in other ways. But, I find this more to be an interesting story than a book on how to apply this to yourself (unless of course you’re also a navy seal+green beret+army ranger). Ton of respect for the author/veteran, but I didn’t feel this was easy to apply to someone not in his shoes.

Excellent, raw and authentic read!

Jason Van Camp does an incredible job of telling the stories of his fellow warriors as he prepares to lead a Special Forces Unit. The first person account takes an authentic, humble approach to learning about leadership through embracing discomfort, staying focused on the mission while maintaining values and integrity. A recommended read for those searching for the next level in either person or professional life.

Awesome book!

Listened to this while training! When lifting, it gave an additional pump. When running, it helped for that extra push. Not only was it motivating, but it held great meaning and learning points for everyday life! Definitely a must-read/listen!
