My only comment is, if you've read his first two, he does borrow some of the same material from the others. I wasn't too upset about it, but I could see others may find this "upsetting." Also, with that said, don't feel like you need to read the other two first, as they are each independent in their own right.
That particular comment aside, I burned through this book in just a few days because it was so good and it really makes you want to get up and start aggressively tackling your goals.
I admire the Spartan Way. The world right now is a bit too comfortable, and embracing adversity is a cure many people need.
The book includes action plans for individuals to use and gear track their life

It is really brought down by the plugging of the Spartan race format and constant reference to exercise - especially burpees. Author comes across as somewhat unbalanced. I was hoping the book could be translated away from pure exercise/sport based success and used to build a mindset to pursue less physical goals.
I don’t advocate bringing up kids in the way described. Some of ideas were antiquated as best. For me the book would have been improved if the mention of children were removed entirely, this wasn’t why I read the book. To look to impose harsh regimes on my own life is my choice, for the purpose of facilitating my own goals, it is not a choice I would impose on my kids.
Some sections also really put me off. To suggest doing push-ups and burpees in the waiting hall of an airport just struck me as total nonsense. Not my call of course, do as you will. Time can be well spent in these situations catching up on reading and work. Running up and down the waiting hall wouldn’t immediately strike me as the actions of a well balanced individual. Nor one of a selfless character.
Though I do get that some of the ideas are purposely ‘out there’ and meant to get you to think a little differently - for that I do respect the more controversial components. Hence my average rating. I can see that it could appeal - especially if you are into Spartan races and in pursuit of some physical exercise related goals. However, I feel the audience has been narrowed unnecessarily. With some adjustment and editing the book could have wider appeal.
