David Amerland interviewed hundreds of snipers to find out how do ordinary people turn into the extraordinary and then he explains the science behind their remarkable achievements, in terms of self-control, ability to make quick decisions under extremely difficult conditions, eliminate fear. And then he explains how the very tactics the snipers use could be used in a business environment to help the readers use these proven and extremely useful techniques in their personal and business lives.
This book has plenty of historical references and interesting stories (ie it's entertaining and certainly not boring like so many business books are). It also gives you the tools and explanations and guides you on how you too can use your mind, train it, to become just as fearless, be a true leader, make hard decisions with confidence and strength and succeed in your business, even if many others can't. That's the magic of this book and why it's a must-read for every business owner, every team leader and everyone who understands that they have the power to improve their mind and thus - improve their life! This book is the guide to get you where you're going!
I was privileged to read this book before it officially came out for sale (today) and can't recommend this book highly enough. If you know you can do better, you want to do better in your life and/or your business - you can! with The Sniper Mind as your guide!
One of the core contentions of this book is that the sniper’s mind is not born, but made. Amerland explores the neuroscience behind the transformation that a sniper goes through in training and over the course of long and extremely difficult hours in the field. The book is peppered with engaging stories about individuals making heroic efforts to save their comrades from horrible situations. The stories don’t glorify war and neither do they dismiss its horrors, but they do give you a much better understanding of these extraordinary people who train and train and train as elite snipers.
I am in the process of deepening my meditation practice and have become increasingly focused on the balance of attention and awareness that goes into expanding mindfulness. So, it’s been extremely interesting to experience some of what Amerland is describing in terms of the mind’s ability to sharpen its focus through training over time. The quote from Jon Kabat-Zinn in the book gets to this: “Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, nonjudgmentally. It’s about knowing what is on your mind.”
I recommend reading this book. The sniper stories act as a kind of fuel that keeps you moving through it, so it ends up being a quick read. Over the course of reading this book, you start to put together a much better understanding of how it is that the human mind can be trained over time to accomplish amazing feats and perform on a whole new level. I’m not guaranteeing that you will emerge with a sniper mind, or that you will necessarily come away making better decisions. But you will understand that it is possible and you will have a roadmap for helping you to get there. The training part is up to you.
