Understanding The Warrior Mindset
on 11 July 2012
I've been moving on from the warrior mindset for some time now after reflecting that the only purpose for a warrior is to find war and battles and conflict. After all, it's what they train for, right?
But this book intrigued me as I know that Pressfield has a fond romanticism around all things military (as do I as a former soldier myself) yet I also know that he's a logical, no-BS thinker and writer who doesn't dress things up, preferring to let the actual events he writes about be seen in their 'down and dirty' reality.
I liked this book as he hit on elements of the warrior mind, the tribal connection, the difference between a gang and a unit of warriors, the hardcore codes of ethics, the care of community, attraction to hardship and more.
I can't recommend this enough for those trying to understand the warrior mind and what makes them as they are... a brilliant, if somewhat short, read.
Truth, joy and love
