Jocko’s Incredible book, Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual
In Discipline Equals Freedom, Jocko hones in more on his personal methods for life, and leadership.
The book is separated into 4 parts:
- Thoughts – This is where Jocko covers his personal views on many things
- Actions – This is where Jocko goes more pragmatic in how he attacks life
- Fuel – Feeding the Machine – Jocko’s take on food
- The Workouts – Here Jocko outlines his personal workouts, and breaks them into Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced with 4 tiers of difficulty in each
Discipline Equals Freedom is a phenomenal read, and it’s also a bad ass design.
The book is all black, with no dust cover. The pages are all black with white type, and each page has a black and white backdrop behind it.
The writing style of Discipline Equals Freedom is like no book I’ve ever read…It’s almost written in poems.
The writing style is incredible, and as you read each passage, the whole book is practically narrated in Jocko’s distinct surly voice.
While Jocko is very well known for his aggressive style, rough exterior, and assertive attitude, he actually has a bachelors degree in English. This, combined with his extensive leadership experience, and take-action attitude, make him a phenomenal motivator and a role model for many.
Enjoy the Quotes. Enjoy the Book!
