“Unflinching is one of those books that you just can’t put down. What a book! What a life! Jody is an inspiration. He never quit, he never gave up, no matter how tough the road was. This book will make you proud that Jody is a Canadian.” (Don Cherry)
“Jody Mitic’s harrowing and heroic life story reveals Canada’s frontline soldiers as I know them to be: intelligent, complex, emotional and loyal. ... This book is inspiration for anyone hoping to re-invent their life. Jody has triumphed at it time and again.” (Kevin Newman, journalist/ancho and co-author of All Out)
“I’ve read it all, start to finish, in one enthralled session. Unflinching is raw, personal, unforgiving, unrelenting and draws one into Jody’s life, with a vividness and a colour that’s visceral.” (General Rick Hiller, former Chief of Defence Staff for the Canadian Forces)
“Unflinching is pure Jody Mitic—smart, funny, honest, and tough. I think the first time I saw Jody he was kicking the hell out of the army half marathon on his new feet; the next time, he was a newly elected Ottawa councillor, and now he’s an accomplished storyteller. He’d be almost irritatingly capable if he wasn’t also a lovely human being.” (Christie Blatchford, author of Fifteen Days: Stories of Bravery, Friendship, Life and Death from Inside the New Canadian Army)
“Over the last several years, Jody Mitic has been a larger-than-life figure in the military community. Reading his experiences in his own clear, humble, funny, and no-bullshit prose has offered insight to the very real human at the core of his story. I would recommend Unflinching to any Canadian, military or civilian.” (Matt Lennox, author of The Carpenter and Knuckle Head)
“The pacing and quiet drama of his stories of battlefield missions are excellent. He's got a nice touch for keeping you glued to his narrative. And it's in his portrayal of the physical and psychological effects of intense combat and command tactical gaffes that the memoir really takes off.” (Winnipeg Free Press)
“Unflinching: The Making of a Canadian Sniper, is a deeply personal retelling of the 38-year-old’s life in the military.” (Ottawa Metronews)
“Unflinching is a raw and sometimes brutal journey into the heart and life of a soldier.” (Ottawa Magazine)
“Unflinching is a raw and candid memoir that follows the personal journey of a 20 year Canadian Armed Forces CAF Veteran and Sniper Team Leader Jody Mitic.” (The Western Sentinel)
“Mitic’s long and courageous road to recovery, from a life-changing injury and subsequent addiction to pain killers to becoming an outspoken advocate of injured veterans an Ottawa city councilor, is the stuff of inspiring movies.” (Quill & Quire)
