From decorated Green Beret sniper, UFC headliner, and all around badass, Tim Kennedy, a rollicking, inspirational memoir offering lessons in how to embrace failure and weather storms, in order to unlock the strongest version of yourself.

Tim Kennedy has a problem; he only feels alive right before he’s about to die. Kennedy, a Green Beret, decorated Army sniper, and UFC headliner, has tackled a bull with his bare hands, jumped out of airplanes, dove to the depths of the ocean, and traveled the world hunting poachers, human traffickers, and the Taliban.

But he’s also the same man who got kicked out of the police department, fire department, and as an EMT, before getting two women pregnant four days apart, and finally, been beaten up by his Special Forces colleagues for, quite simply, “being a selfish asshole.”

In Scars and Stripes, Kennedy describes how these failures shaped him into the successful businessman and devoted husband and father he is today. Through unbelievably vivid, wild anecdotes Kennedy reveals all the dumb, violent, embarrassing, and undeniably heroic things he’s done in his life, including multiple combat missions in Afghanistan, building a school in Texas for elementary kids, and creating two-multimillion-dollar businesses. You will learn that failure isn’t the end—rather it’s the first step towards unearthing the best version of yourself and finding success, no matter how overwhelming the setbacks may feel.

Although the authors appears cocky, he has an amazing story. Not only has he been through a lot, but he is extremely accomplished. I definitely recommend this book. However, after listening, I would have preferred to read the book. the author narrates the book and it is not enjoyable. he truly doesn't understand the nuances of reading a book, such as intonation. It was very irritating when it sounds like the sentence continues and it's the end, etc. He should have let someone else read. I would go see him speak if he was giving a presentation, but I don't want to hear him read.

Great book! Tim Kennedy is incredible in every sense of the word! It's not often you find a person that goes between fighting for our country and in the UFC almost simultaneously, this guy has only one gear and that's GO!! If you're looking for a very well rounded book with a lot of action, this is for you!!!
