Entrepreneur Jesse Itzler chronicles his month of living and extreme fitness training with a Navy SEAL in the New York Times and #1 LA Times bestseller LIVING WITH A SEAL, now with two bonus chapters.
Entrepreneur Jesse Itzler will try almost anything. His life is about being bold and risky. So when Jesse felt himself drifting on autopilot, he hired a rather unconventional trainer to live with him for a month-an accomplished Navy SEAL widely considered to be "the toughest man on the planet"!
LIVING WITH A SEAL is like a buddy movie if it starred the Fresh Prince of Bel- Air...and Rambo. Jesse is about as easy-going as you can get. SEAL is...not. Jesse and SEAL's escapades soon produce a great friendship, and Jesse gains much more than muscle. At turns hilarious and inspiring, LIVING WITH A SEAL ultimately shows you the benefits of stepping out of your comfort zone.

I thought that this book was just ok. It is a very quick read, for whatever that's worth. But it's hard to feel connected to the main character.This is not someone who wants to change his life by lifting himself up by his bootstraps. Rather, it's a super rich guy who hires a Navy Seal mostly as a lark.

The Navy Seal is by far the most compelling character of the book, but the author, while noting that trying to understand more about the Seal is a difficult task, pretty much leaves it at that and doesn't even try to explore who the Seal is or how he came to be who he is.

My two big takeaways:
1) The Navy Seal is a very impressive person.
2) Some workouts that I can try at home to improve my fitness.

I really enjoyed this book. It is funny and motivating. I was laughing out loud on many occasions. Jesse is pushed outside his comfort zone throughout the book. The one downside is there is a lot of cussing. I usually won't read books with a lot of bad language but I just had to finish it.
