Product description

Review

A must-read! Dan Crenshaw has crafted a truly inspiring narrative that grippingly details the life of a hero, replete with grit, courage, and a refusal to let the darkest of circumstances stop him from serving his country at the highest levels. This is not just the story of a hero; it is an informed recipe for success in life, containing a useful blueprint for bringing out our best, most resilient heroic self within each of us.--p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-align: center; font: 12.0px Arial}Professor Scott T. Allison, University of Richmond, author of Heroes: What They Do and Why We Need Them

A wide exploration of prevailing cultural maladies that flow from the decline of resilience...[FORTITUDE] has elements of a combat memoir, social critique, political analysis and self-improvement manual. These disparate genres are seamlessly woven into a plain-spoken, cohesive and timely argument and call for renewal.--Wall Street Journal

As someone who has served our country on the front lines in Afghanistan, Dan Crenshaw knows what it means to separate the trivial from the truly meaningful. In FORTITUDE, he brings this vital experience to bear, offering keen insights on how to unite our fractured country and take pride in its founding ideals -- even as we face up to the tough truths of its history.--Condoleezza Rice, New York Times bestselling author of Democracy: Stories from the Long Road to Freedom

FORTITUDE is a much-needed reminder that the American Dream is alive and well, as long as we are willing to work for it. Through stories of personal responsibility and perseverance --with humor along the way -- it gives young people the advice they need to be successful. And it gives them the courage to rise above the mob and today's political divisions. Dan reminds us exactly why we are so blessed to live in America.--Nikki Haley, Former UN Ambassador & New York Times bestselling author of With All Due Respect: Defending America with Grit and Grace

Life is a struggle; it is a demanding test, not only for us as individuals, but also for us as a nation. FORTITUDE distills and consolidates crucial elements from ancient philosophy, modern psychology, the SEAL ethos, and Dan Crenshaw's personal experiences as a leader and warrior into a clear and pragmatic guide for any person who wants to confront the challenges of life with courage, tenacity, and fortitude. By living the principles set forth in this book, any person can make their world -- and thereby our world -- a better place.--p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; text-align: center; font: 12.0px Arial}Jocko Willink, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Extreme Ownership

The American experiment is about mental toughness in the face of adversity -- because freedom takes toughness. I know no one tougher than Dan Crenshaw, which is probably why his new book, FORTITUDE, is a must-read. Dan combines real-world experience with a command of America's philosophical roots, and he reminds us that what made America great still beats in the breasts of those who continue to fight for a culture of liberty.--Ben Shapiro, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Right Side of History: How Reason and Moral Purpose Made the West Great

This solution-oriented book is a must-read for anyone who loves America and believes that the grit and determination that founded her are in need of a revival. FORTITUDE is a set of tools for being tougher, yes, but it is also a guide for preserving the freedoms and foundations of our great country. Dan's experiences as a SEAL and now Congressman give FORTITUDE instant credibility, with a message that desperately needs to be heard far and wide.--Marcus Luttrell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Lone Survivor
