it was amazing

This book was a quick read and a lot of fun. Some key takeaways for me:
- it's important to do hard things
- push-ups are a great form of exercise
- routine and complacency can prevent progress
- you're never done when you think you are. There's always something left in the tank.
- you can always work harder, and always be better (granted basic good health)
The narrative was hilarious and I enjoyed Jesse Itzler's memoir bits. That guy's lived an interesting life. The whole premise of the month is kind of goofy, I mean his descriptions of SEAL seem at first to be almost caricature until you realize that this guy is actually quite possibly the toughest man on the planet, and the month is far more than just some gimmick. It also becomes apparent pretty early on that the Itzlers live an almost impossibly privileged life, but Jesse's not trying to brag about it and it doesn't come off in any way pretentious - those are just his circumstances, and the couple both and individually took some big steps to get to that point.
