I read this on the reuest of my 18 year old republican grandson I realized that this grandmother's liberal views would be tested but feel that books are a great starting point for respectful discussions AND for any of you with 18 year old grandsons sometimes those discussions points are hard to come by I would probably read anything he suggested Or maybe not First the reason I gave it 3 stars was not based on Crenshaw's opinions even though I find it despicable that his voting record shows that he agrees with Trump 937% of the time See what you think when you read about his reasons for opposing to a 15 minimum wage or minority rights or a dozen other things My reason for the rating is his arrogance He seems to feel that he has the only sure fire formula for personal and national success I felt that his tone was condescending I could try all I wanted but I would never be as big and bad and correct as him Plus it was so repetitive There is NO way he had enough content to write even this short book It should have been an extended essay maybe multi part BTW this pandemic could have probably provided him with the missing content His timing was just a little off for this motherlodeNow to the ideas that I feel have do have merit Yes I do think many of us have become a tiny bit too fragile looking for reasons to whine forgoing chances to toughen up our spirit when our life turns in unexpected ways Yet when he urges us not to look for insults I challenge him to look at the battles POC still fight every day He believes that we look to others to meet our basic needs when we should look inward Yeah fine if your white privilege allows you to do that Victimhood culture only rings true if you are not truly a victim I agree with him about our current outrage culture and am guilty of going there personally Although outrage does not spark productive dialog it is hard to resist when you are passionate about your beliefs Being still is great advice His reaction to Pete Davidson's skit on SNL was a lesson in self control and positive outcomes He says Feeling shame is actually good It is synonymous with feeling accountable for our actions and consciously admitting that our actions might not have been the right ones I often think it's the wrong people who feel the shame but ok Political correctness is challenged from his perspective only Every once in a while he throws in a uote by Obama or Winfrey to give the impression that he's being inclusive He believes in self improvement and is happy to tell us all of the ways he's improved himself While liberal arts classes expand the mind you need science and math to sharpen the mind He's always drawing distinctions like these that deserve some push back A resilient person can suffer through some punishment but an antifragile person is made stronger by it I need to stop because obviously I can't keep my snark in check

Jordan Peterson's Twelve Rules for Life meets Jocko Willink and Leif Babin's Extreme Ownership in this tough love leadership book from a Navy SEAL and rising star in Republican politicsIn 2012 on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan a roadside bomb took Dan Crenshaw's right eye When he learned how to see again he didn't want anyone's pity People shouldn't feel sorry for him he decided and they shouldn't feel sorry for themselves either Most people's everyday challenges aren't as extreme as surviving combat or working to regain their sight but. Fortitude by war hero and rising political star Dan Crenshaw is surprisingly not about politics for the most part Nor is it a biography although Crenshaw draws on his experience losing his mother to cancer as a young child his years in Colombia and Ecuador as his father's work took him to these exotic locales his near fatal run in with an IED In Afghanistan that stole an eye from him and his training as a Navy SEAL The heart of Crenshaw's book is a conviction that outrage culture and the twitter mob has stripped dialogue from the public suare silenced speech and caused outrage to be dealt with by outrage The answer Crenshaw argues to be remain calm while all those around you are losing their heads as Kipling once argued Don't uit Don't overreact Don't get caught in the emotions of the moment Take a deep breath and present a reasoned response Crenshaw is still a young man and his reason and thoughtfulness may point a way out of the increasing volatility f today's public suare

Summary Fortitude

FortitudeThat's just Crenshaw's point If we can meet life's toughest challenges without resenting our luck or complaining minor daily obstacles aren't worth our outrage Microaggressions and triggers from mere words mean little to someone who's had bullets fly by their head That's Crenshaw's simple lesson in FORTITUDE Lighten up toughen up and get to work on what's important hint it's not giving into a culture of outrage playing the victim and seeking an apologyFORTITUDE is a no nonsense advice book for a society desperately in need of tough love With me. Recommended for EveryoneCrenshaw did an excellent job of explaining the modern 'outrage' problem and what can be done about it Drawing from his experience as a Navy SEAL he introduces relatable solutions Looking forward to reading of his work
