This program is read by Thor Willink with the author, Jocko Willink.

Fifth grade was the worst year of Marc’s life. He stunk at gym class, math was too hard for him, the school lunch was horrible, and his class field trip was ruined because he couldn’t swim. But what was most awful thing about fifth grade? Kenny Williamson, the class bully, who calls himself the "King of the Jungle."

When Marc's mother tells him that his Uncle Jake is coming to stay for the whole summer, Marc can't wait. Uncle Jake is a for real, super-cool Navy SEAL. And Uncle Jake has a plan.

He's going to turn Marc into a warrior.

Becoming a warrior isn’t easy. It means a lot of pull ups, sit ups, pushups, squats, swimming, eating right, and studying harder than ever before! Can Marc transform himself into a warrior before school starts in the fall – and finally stand up to the King of the Jungle himself?

The Way of the Warrior Kid is a new illustrated chapter book by #1 New York Times-bestselling author and retired Navy SEAL Jocko Willink.

Great lessons

Great story that kids can relate to. Easy to understand language without losing strength of key concepts. Don't focus on the details of the story, like where is the dad in all of this, why does the mom allow crappy food in the house, and if Uncle Jake has any weaknesses. This isn't an in depth novel, it's an easy to understand story that illustrates how to incorporate positive habits and discipline into your life. It tackles common kid circumstances and problems. This isn't just for kids. If your kid sees you doing these things, they will also be more apt to follow through, maintain accountability, and more importantly, build self-discipline where they become reliant only on themselves to make the right decisions. The audio version is great. The voices annunciate clearly, speak with enthusiasm and realism, and maintain a consistent volume. It's a solid 5 star rating.

All the little Things

It can be a challenge to find good children’s literature with meaning, especially meant for young boys. The subject matter is concise and to the point, making the book easy to follow and understand for young age groups. I enjoyed it immensely. Mr. Willink took concepts that are challenging for adults to tackle and tied them neatly. His writing style is concise and disciplined. He uses words efficiently and I cannot state how refreshing that is. I’ve been a fan of his work for a while so I’m surprised it took me this long to getting around to it. Cheers.
