Living With A Seal: 30 days with the toughest man in the planet. Is the latest book to get devoured by yours truly. To be honest I had never heard of this book, or the hype around it until a client of mine handed me a copy the day after the books release.
My client told me a little bit about Jesse, the author, and his amazing knack for starting successful business. He along with his wife Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx, allowed a navy SEAL to live in their NYC apartment for a full month.
Jesse asked SEAL, his named is never revealed for privacy reasons, to live with them to shake up his life and get Jesse out of his “auto-pilot” phase.
Not only did SEAL do this, he got Jesse into the best shape of his life. Jesse is an avid runner, who participated in a few ultra marathons and ran many marathons before meeting SEAL.
My overall opinion of this book is that it’s great. I devoured the entire thing cover to cover in less then 24 hours. I really enjoyed reading about the workouts, the drive that goes in them, and the no nonsense attitude of SEAL. Along with brief back stories of Jesse’s life, this book is so well rounded and an easy read. Its also very lighthearted in parts and series in others so the overall vibe on the book shifts occasionally.
I think anyone who is into fitness, business startup’s, or a goofy 40 something ex white rappers will enjoy this book so much.
