About this deal

I didn’t ready myself; I lived the lie that I’d be experiencing a new beginning where everything was going to be cool once I’d woken up on my first day outside of the military. Given the fact that he was a Royal Marine and then a member of the elite SBS, that is saying something because, as one finds in the book, being a member of the SBS is only for the few, and the few [so the notion goes] do not get PTSD because PTSD is a sign of weakness. I have no idea what I learned from it apart from the trite "it's good to talk and men should do more of it". Jason leads and motivates teams, designing packages for ‘the ultimate team-building exercise’ featuring challenging and gruelling Special Forces drills. Be situationally aware“In the special forces, because there are a million different things going on, your head is always on a swivel.

Once I’d been lucky enough to get a job on SAS: Who Dares Wins, I decided to use the platform as an exercise in honesty. It's a shame I was listening to it rather than reading it myself (even though I liked the fact that he was the one reading it to me ;)). But when he woke up the next day he felt lower than ever and, now that he wasn’t part of the forces, alone. The expedition brings together human endeavour, technology and education to shine a spotlight on the issues facing our fragile oceans, sharing tangible solutions, knowledge and ideas with a global audience.

Of course, there were regrets about some of my behaviour; I wasn’t particularly proud of certain things I’d done in life.

I’ve since been approached by men and women from all walks of life who have explained how the writing encouraged them to ask some painfully honest questions of their own. Jason takes us from his enthusiasm in joining the military, to his experiences in combat, to the failure of the dept of Defense in guiding him in his battles with PTSD. The first thing is don’t be a tyrant, because no-one will care about you and you won’t lead anything.Rather than focusing too much on Foxy’s time in the military, the main focus of Battle Scars is Foxy’s battle with PTSD and chronic burnout. His bestselling book, Battle Scars, charting his two-decade journey in the Royal Marines and the Special Boat Service, has hit many nerves due to the same honesty.
