It's hilarious―LeBron James
This is 100% Jesse. Do it differently and you get different results. That's the way he has operated his entire life and it has worked beautifully.―Mike "Coach K" Krzyzewski, Duke Basketball head coach
Jesse is a risk taker and is always trying different things to get better. Plus, he's fun to go out with.―Tom Brady, New England Patriots, four-time NFL Champion, two-time NFL MVP
Most of us go through life on auto-pilot. New day...same routine. This guy beamed a "live action hero" into his living room for 31 days to shake up his life. Sometimes you have to have the guts to do something radical to get results.―Dolvett Quince, The Biggest Loser
Jesse knows what it takes to succeed in business and in life - a Don't Quit attitude! Our US Military embraces that attitude in training and survival, no one more so than the elite Navy SEALs. When my pal invites SEAL into his world, Jesse's life is never the same again! The relationship between these guys is outrageous - it's like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air meets Rambo! But with all the insanity there are strong life messages, hysterical moments, and great lessons to be learned. Like Jesse, this book is a HIT!―Jake Steinfeld, chairman and founder of Body by Jake
George Foreman once gave me great advice. When I told him my husband ran 100 miles non-stop he said, 'Sara, don't try to understand a man like that. Just love him.'―Sara Blakely, Founder of SPANX, Jesse's wife
"Living With A Navy Seal is funny and compelling with practical wisdom that leaves the reader feeling elevated and empowered. It also deeply impacted my own personal journey to health, fitness and well being."―Cory Booker, US Senator for New Jersey
About the Author

When he is not running ultra marathons, eating vegan food or being a dad to his three kids, Jesse can be found at the NBA's Atlanta Hawks games, where he is an owner of the team. He is married to Spanx founder Sara Blakely.

I had a similar experience reading Jesse Itzler's informative, inspiring and hilarious fitness memoir, "Living with a SEAL."
Itzler is a compulsively motivated human being who has achieved crazy success in entertainment, business, and fitness (to say nothing of marriage) by doing things others haven't thought of, view as contrarian or consider bat-shit insane. (is "bat-shit" hyphenated?)
In LWaS, Jesse recounts the intense, month-long training hell he brought on himself by inviting a real-life Navy SEAL to live with him and his family. Early in the book I was thinking, "...maybe I should turn up the heat on my workouts and push the limits of my mind and body." Then I read about Jesse's torn muscles, hypothermia and bloody nuts (yes, those kind of nuts), and thought, "naaahhh."
Indeed, Jesse holds back none of the grueling details involved in training with one of the world's most elite warriors and the marital complexities that arise when you host him in your family's apartment.
Like SEAL, Jesse has one speed: 110% x 24 x 7. He's also a little bat-shit insane and a really funny writer. If you're into fitness and/or crazy people, you'll love Living with a SEAL.
It's good fun. Enjoy.
Otherwise, you cant fail to be in awe and inspired by the superhuman that is SEAL. I took a few things away from this, and applied them to my daily life e.g. I might sometimes turn around on a hike if I "didnt feel like it", Im finding myself now thinking about SEAL and his "see it through" attitude, and I finish what i started.
Overall its an enjoyable read.
