Reviews - What do customers think about Winning Under Fire: Turn Stress into Success the U.S. Army Way?
Eddie's Take Jan 19, 2008
A slightly slow start, the beginning has very good perspectives on improving your business.
The author views the market as a war. (Win/Loose) -of taking the market share. This would obviously stimulate crazy competition. Isn't there a way for win/win?
It could be improved as the end of the CD set reviews the aforementioned themes over and lecture stimulation is lost with the loss of deep intellect. This concept is the best however; the information on stress should be introduced form more of a psychology/researched perception and not from such a management/army view.
Great for anyone who manages or is a leader, but is not all inclusive for the manager. It mentioned well about team building and management, but also recommended competition between members of the same company. Anyone who read Influence by Cialdini would find this particular tip scary. The entire book can not be judged on the few flaws.
My take is that the end of the book is a lecture of obvious information which should be more engaging and more health based. It is a great resource for the business man or perhaps new army ranger recruits.
The golden back bone of this book, from my perspective, is that America has gotten caught with it's pants down time after time again. From 911, to hurricane Katrina, and way too many others to mention, it was only a matter of time before a leader realized the strength in responding to these situations effectively. I believe that the future of America is depending more and more on the economy of properly trained government and business professionals, as well as an economic solution to the frivolous jail system. As terror becomes rebellious and insightful, we must be properly trained to handle the economic repercussions of setbacks. Mr. Collie, I am proud to mention, should not be the only leader to take such imperative action to this angle of strategic science in pioneering a proud job of future success through intelligent readiness. How many setbacks must occur before we realize that, as a nation, something in the future must change to make this easy and efficiently possible.
A different take a stress Dec 22, 2005
I picked up the book expecting to read "Stress is bad. Here's how to get rid of it." What I read is that some stress is good. If you're going into battle, stress can help you prepare properly. Good thinking, if you can keep it in perspective. The book actually deals with business issues, using the perspective of an Army ranger who has seen both the fighting side and the business side of life. Worthwhile reading.
