Forged in combat and synthesized to handle the opportunities and challenges of the 21st Century, Meditations of an Army Ranger describes a practical, modern day philosophy to guide us all in our daily lives. As the book outlines, you must do more than talk about your philosophy; you must live it, exemplify it, and apply it in a consistent and focused manner to make the world a better place.
As a culture, we currently tend to seek little more than motivation from our Special Operations warriors and in this, we are missing the mark, as they have far more to offer us. From ancient times, we have built our human foundations upon the philosophy of warriors. Not on their philosophy of war, but on their philosophy of life. How they saw the world. The ideas of democracy, service, education, and love that evolved from earlier generations of human beings who had seen combat. Philosophy, to these ancient warriors, was not a luxury reserved for the privileged, but rather a tool; a necessity required not only to fight better, but to live better. The time is now ripe for the return of the warrior-philosopher. We are hungry for it: the wisdom and guidance which can be brought to us by someone with firsthand experience of the real world.
Read, understand, and apply in order to honorably lead and serve in all walks of life.
