5.0 out of 5 stars Great Message, July 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you are picking up this book looking for training plans and meal layouts- forget it. However, if you want to dig a little deeper into Froning's mental prep and fortitude, read on! To put it simply, you won't reach your full potential until you stop being self centered. The book starts out a little slow but finishes strong. If you are uncomfortable with Christianity and Rich 's acceptance of Jesus, you won't get a whole lot from this read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Their Weight In Gold, July 2, 2013

I was skeptical that these would hold up to the abuse of drying muck boots during the summer, but they performed marvelously! Their relatively small size makes them packable, and the car adapter has come in handy more than once. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, June 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've had the extreme displeasure over the last few years of having a neck, that for lack of better description, is red or very, very tan, for the better part of the year. I bought this hat in the hopes that (1) it would fit my large noggin, and (2) it would decrease my neck tan issues. The result? Outfreaking-standing! This hat is awesome. It fits large heads, it fits under helmets, and it doesn't cause me to overheat. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars addictive, June 2, 2013

This review is from: TETRIS® Blitz (App)
Game is very addictive an fun to play. The only downside is the coin currency for add ons. For a free game it's worth that annoyance.

4.0 out of 5 stars A SEAL to the end, May 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Not a bad read. I found Kyle's style similar to other SEALs, which is cocky to the nth degree. I spent time on the other side of Spec Ops, where developing a working relationship with locals is an important and vital part of the job, so the total dismissal of working with indigenous units was irritating after a while.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's hard to admit you aren't doing the work, August 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Do the Work (Hardcover)
I will admit that the premise of the book is, for all intents and purposes, unequivocally simple. However, if everything were as simple as stating a title, people would be doing amazing things every day. The first step to achieving anything is to, well, do the work. Putting in the effort, and most importantly the time, are fundamental in achieving any goal. There isn't any magic formula to skip this integral step, and many people have a hard time accepting this fact. If you read the book, and claim to "get nothing out of it", then you need to read it again, because you missed a lot of important information. I would say this book, along with "The War of Art" should be required reading for anyone who has ever pursued a dream. It's not flashy, and Pressfield will not blow smoke up your rear. If you want someone to tell you that you are awesome, then look elsewhere. All you will get in Do The Work is the truth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Short sighted, February 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The book starts out well, but the author shows his relative ignorance about alternatives to increase thyroid hormones without the use of dessicated thyroid. It is a hard pill to swallow (figuratively) that the only treatment is a lifelong regime of dessicated thyroid. Historic evidence of other societies other than Anglo-European shows a definitive lack of interest in science that may disagree with his hypothesis. This book calls to light the problems associated with hypothyroidism but does little to show how we actually arrived at this state (for example, why do we not see hypothyroidism in hunter-gatherer populations?). Read this for some useful information, but don't freak out with the doomsday conclusion(s) that the author offers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't just sit there, buy it!, January 9, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is by far the best drill I have ever used. Don't fall into the DeWalt trap, this drill is lighter and more powerful than the 18V DeWalts out there. It works for around the house and for industrial jobs. There aren't enough stars to properly rate this drill!

Some of the conditioning things are a little dated, but the sport specific drills are well worth the purchase of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, January 9, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Don't think that you know the end all be all about the low carb diet, most of what you have read in popular media isn't the complete story. The Eades do an excellent job of supporting their ideas with science. This book is an excellent resource for anyone who wishes to eat in a way that is in agreement with their genetic history.
