Format: Paperback
I bought "Heart of a Lion" because I'm a fan of military history and followed the books on Operation Red Wings. What I got was much more than another book about Navy SEALs.

"Heart of a Lion" is a much needed compass that points to the true north of integrity and honor. It challenges us to examine ourselves, our values and our motives. "Heart of a Lion" provides leadership lessons for Fortune 500 CEO's and teenagers trying to moderate the influences of peer pressure.

While the book is value and moral based it crosses boundaries sometimes established by specific texts that reference faith or religion. You won't get that here. "Heart of a Lion" simply teaches how to live a life on honor and acknowledges that, as humans, we will all make mistakes and all fall short sometimes.

This may be the perfect value based book for business, educators and families. At only 118 succinct, well written pages it is perfect for teachers to use in class and businesses to distribute to their staff and managers. Never "preachy" and filled with examples from Medal of Honor winner Michael P. Murphy (the Navy SEAL killed in Operation Red Wings while radioing for support for his team, exposing himself to enemy fire) the book delivers powerful insights on strong values that have slipped so much in our modern society.

I was hoping for a book that was a little longer (I did not read how many pages were in it when I bought it) but every page of it is well worth it. No extra "fluff" in this book, short and to the point. After each chapter there are blank lined pages for you to make notes on what you just read. I really enjoyed this as the book really had my brain turning and worked perfect for me to put my thoughts onto paper. I enjoyed the book so much I bought another and sent it to a friend. Highly recommend this for young and old.

I am almost done with this book, and I think most people(myself included) could learn a lot about real leadership and integrity from Mike Murphy. Not boasting, helping those who are less popular, and admitting mistakes are things we should all do, and if I could I would make ALL members of congress read this and learn from a true man of honor.

After reading Lone Survivor, I wanted to read this book on Lt. Michael Patrick Murphy to get better knowledge of his leadership abilities and was blown away. The chapters are only about a page and a half to two pages but it gave great insight into the kind of person Lt. Murphy was. It is a book that is definitely worth reading especially to those who are in a leadership role. Doesn't take long to read but well worth the time.

Touching story: PLEASE read this. What a fabulous gentleman.
Also, READ "No Easy Day" (Mark Owen), "Lone Survivor" & Service" (Marcus Lutrell),
"Seal of Honor"(Gary Williams).

WHAT a devoted person.

Outstanding. The author has done an great job of using LT. Michael P. Murphys life as an example for excellence and leadership. Must read! Murphys legacy lives on thanks in part to this book. A special thanks to the friends & family for raising such a great man.

I'm going to address some of the issues people seem to have with this book. It is short and sweet; do not expect a lengthy volume. This is not a book on SEALs, SEAL training or even LT. Michael Murphys life. If you are looking for any of these subjects I highly recommend the books written by Dick Couch, Marcus Luttrell or even Murphys biography written by the same author.

This book arrived very quickly and I'm very happy about that. Michael was a student in our school and I'm very proud to read about his heroism. Our local post office is named for him, which is an honor too. All Americans should read this book. It's what being a hero is all about.
