Présentation de l'éditeur


We are all warriors. Each of us struggles every day to define and defend our sense of purpose and integrity, to justify our existence on the planet and to understand, if only within our own hearts, who we are and what we believe in. Do we fight by a code? If so, what is it? What is the Warrior Ethos? Where did it come from? What form does it take today? How do we (and how can we) use it and be true to it in our internal and external lives?

The Warrior Ethos is intended not only for men and women in uniform, but artists, entrepreneurs and other warriors in other walks of life. The book examines the evolution of the warrior code of honor and "mental toughness." It goes back to the ancient Spartans and Athenians, to Caesar's Romans, Alexander's Macedonians and the Persians of Cyrus the Great (not excluding the Garden of Eden and the primitive hunting band). Sources include Herodotus, Thucydides, Plutarch, Xenophon, Vegetius, Arrian and Curtius--and on down to Gen. George Patton, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, and Israeli Minister of Defense, Moshe Dayan.

Biographie de l'auteur

C'est court, aéré, ça se lit très vite et s'oublie tout aussi vite.
Il n'y a pas d'analyse vraiment profonde, quelques exemples cités, et l'indigence du paragraphe précédent la bibliographie en dit long.
Je le cite en traduisant : "Les citations et histoires sont tirés des ouvrages suivants (bien que l'auteur admette qu'il ne sait parfois pas quelle anecdote vient de quel livre). Toutes les citations sont des traductions ou des reconstructions de l'auteur".
Bref, Pressfield livre SA version de ce qu'est un guerrier, et reste bien loin d'un étude sérieuse et intéressante.

I have read much of Pressfield's work, and was anxiously awaiting to load this up on my Kindle. Once again, he does not disappoint. As a Soldier, I am always on the lookout for inspiring books that I can help to professionally develop my subordinates. Gates of Fire was one of these books. This is another one.

We all know where bravery and military values come from... but do we REALLY know where they come from? Pressfield deconstructs the Warrior Ethos and puts it's many facets in the context of history. All the usual suspects are there: the Spartans, the Macedonians, the Athenians, etc... this book reads like a collection of essays, but a collection that can be enjoyed individually, or as a whole. I read this book all in one sitting, and was so impressed that I immediately ordered three dead-tree copies for my three Squad Leaders as professional development material.

You don't have to be a Soldier or Marine to learn from the Warrior Ethos, and practice it in your life. This book will put you on the right path to learning not only what is it, but how it came about.

I am a big fan of Victor Davis Hanson, and this book compares well to Hanson's "Carnage and Culture."

Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pressfield is the master of extracting ideas from wars and warriors that can be used today in life or business 2 juillet 2011

Because this was a short book and put out fairly quickly it seemed, I didn't have high expectations but I got it anyway because I like some of his previous work.

I read the book in one sitting and it was phenomenal. The look at warriors and their psychology through history both as warriors, leaders, and humans combined with a look at how those attitudes show up today is nothing short of insightful.

If you are looking for a good place to start, this is it, when are are done with this read Marcus Aurelius Meditations Letters from a Stoic by Senenca Letters from a Stoic (Penguin Classics) then move on to The 33 Strategies of War by Robert Greene The 33 Strategies of War (Joost Elffers Books).

A very good read for any leader.

Pressfield has one good non fiction work. That's the War of Art. If you expect his other works -Do the Work, Turning Pro and Warrior Ethos- to be anything like it, you're in for a big dissapointment. As many bestselling authors before him Pressfield uses the legitimate prestige of his one well researched, well thought out book to publish knockoffs and first drafts of his ongoing research. The Warrior Ethos is one such book. A collection of 15 or 20 anecdotes with interspersed 10 line comments that could have been written by a high school student. Pretty thin and frivolous for such a big topic. Readers who think the ebook revolution should be no excuse to publish half baked stuff will do much better buying Hackney's Martial Virtues, Bolleli's Warrior Path or Hyams' Zen in the Martial Arts.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Gets smoother as it goes along 31 juillet 2011
Par G. G Storey - Publié sur

This book is a series of thoughts expanded into fuller sections, and it seems as if the author is trying to have a conversation with the readers. The first few sections of the book are choppy, and a bit disjointed--as if the author and reader are still getting to know each other. Once the writing style becomes familiar, after the first 20 pages or so, readers can get into the rhythm and this book will be completed in one sitting.

What disappointed the most was Pressfield's work cited page; the book itself is full of quotes or attributed thoughts (which he initially does say he is projecting upon the historical people being discussed) and when I got to the end and perused the citation page, it reads in part "The stories and anecdotes come from the following sources (although the author admits he sometimes can't remember which came from where."

There is no way I would let my high school composition students get away with admitting "I think this is kind of sort of what I read, but I am too lazy to check for sure." It takes away from the essential authority of book.

Good overall, but not authoritative.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Primer Essay 27 mai 2011
Par J M - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I admired Pressfield for his writing ability, and now I admire him for the thought and respect he has towards the warrior ethos in general. There is nothing earth shaking in this essay, but it is insightful on a ground level way that would make it useful to help the average joe citizen better understand the ideals and themes society's protectors embrace.
