Way of the Warrior Kid: Marc's Mission
Marc’s life has changed since last summer, when his for-real, super-cool Navy SEAL Uncle Jake came to visit. He’s eating healthy, practicing jiu-jitsu, and working hard in school. Marc’s had a great year…until the very last day of school, when he gets into trouble because of Nathan James. Nathan is mean and annoying, and Marc has to spend ...more
Wimpy, regular, scared, or anxious - whichever type you are, you will be stronger and more in control of your life after following The Warrior Kid Code. Anyone with a strong desire to change his life can apply The Code and see results.
Uncle Jake’s character is obviously a stand-in for the real SEAL Team author, but he’s also the voice of calm and frugality heard in nuclear families surviving on one income: Figure it out. Look around. What can you do for money since I’m not ...more
The book’s main fault is in it being built upon Pelagian assumptions. It’s an ode to will power anthropology, missing any mention or discussion of the spiritual dimension of human behavior, particularly the problem ...more
This book is aimed at a younger audience, yet I really enjoyed reading it. It is easy to read and well-illustrated.
Initially, I got this book for my 7-year-old son, but now I am getting my 11-year-old son to read it ad well (he loves riding bikes, so the lessons around bikes were spot-on applicable for him). I am already thinking about modifying the lessons for Warrior Girls - I definitely have one such girl at home; she is a stronger warrior than the other two boys combined.
I also highly recomm...more
This summer, Uncle Jake's lessons come with a forecast on maturity for young Marc:
- Consistency and Tenacity.
- Not slacking, because you've achieved some of your goals.
- Financial discipline.
- Take ...more
The reason that I personally like this book is that it describes problems and issues subjective to Marc. With many other books, like a few I grew up reading, the authors use (real or imagined) systemic world problems, ...more
It’s a beautiful book with an amazing message of ‘mindset os everything ‘. There are some fascinating illustrations that will keep the kids engaged throughout.
It’s a wonderful book that every kid must-read for a better life. The language used by the author is simple and relatable. The events that the author added are the ones which we face ...more
Also, if I understand correctly, "wake up very early" should come with "(and make sure to get enough sleep)" - and I am quite sure I heard Jocko saying this is also his opinion.
But even then it seems like bad advice for people whose circadian rhythms aren't matching this lifestyle. Specifically, the circadian rhythms of teenagers are delayed (https://www.sleepfoundation.org/artic... - an accessible article, https://www.scienced ...more
Uncle Jake returns this summer to help his sister raise Marc during the summer. Marc is sure this summer will be terrible. He has to go to Camp & the bully is going there as well; he wants a new bike & his mom said no; lastly, his Sensei wants him to enter a competition.
Uncle Jake tells Marc that if you can’t c ...more
The language is very simple and for the message it delivers it could be more of a pocket book or cartoon to make sure kids would read it again and again.
If you have a kid, get him to read it!! life message in it ...more
Just like the first book, Jocko tells a story with an excellent, possibly life changing message in a way that is enjoyable to children and adults. My 7 year old and I thoroughly enjoyed the book and are implementing the teaching this summer. We can’t wait to get into the next book.
