Not trying to be dismissive, I really appreciate the time, work and effort that goes into writing your own book. That being said, the book feels almost like a side-kick of the author, most conclusions in this book are made without significant background info, leaving the feeling of assumptions being made rather than a vast field of research. The book is also a little to plainly written for me, making you feel like you read something that you cannot use/apply in your own world. If you are like me and wanted to gather a deeper understanding and appreciation of warriors-culture and way of thinking, you might want to look elsewhere. Steven clearly was interested in Alexander the Great whilst writing this, drawing conclusions to statements and tales that made it through time but fails to explain how he got there. If you are in for a light read that leaves you with little info but a general opinion (bit like daily news really) you could give it a try. I am due another one of Steven's books ( Do the work) and sincerely hope for a more in-depth work.

I love Steven Pressfield's novels with Gates of Fire being my all time favourite. I was not sure what to expect from this book but it is excellent. If you want to find out why some warriors break the rules and some don't then read this. The parts on tribalism are a difficult read - making you painfully aware how far the human race has failed to come in its evolution, especially in the treatment of others.

Very easily read book about the warrior mindset and what really drives us as human beings, i particularly enjoyed the small impactful history lessons about the Spartans and Rommel. Short book that can be read in a afternoon and something that should be study ground for the warrior mentality.
