Mark Divine has a gift for creating highly effective dynamic teams. Mark interleaves key aspects of leadership, mental toughness, resiliency and cultivating higher plains of existence into a foundational concept of being an authentic ‘Leader of leaders.’ This book is indispensable for anyone looking to lead, build and foster an elite culture.

This book teaches you how to lead a team, how to form a team and most importantly how to keep the team adjusting to rapid and unexpected change that you can succeed in whatever field you thrive in.
Robb Wolf, 2X Best Selling Author, consultant for the Naval Special Warfare Resiliency program.
In a world of soundbites and memes works of real substance are not only needed, but stand out. In SDTW, Mark Devine distills his experience and wisdom garnered via military service, entrepreneurship, and life. This is not a motivational book, this is a framework for developing resilience and grit.
Ryan Holiday, #1 New York Times Bestseller, Ego is the Enemy
Mark Divine is one of my favorite writers on leadership and mental and physical wellness.
Thank you for writing your books. The Way of the Seal has been instrumental to getting this PhD completed – keeping Front Site Focused. The mental image you created by describing you and your team sitting in the cold ocean water getting pounded by wave after wave, keeps me going during tough workouts.
Mark’s Unbeatable Mind training helped further solidify our team’s poise under pressure as we prepare for new and challenging missions. He teaches specific skills and techniques that are applicable and valuable for any individual operating in a high stress environment.
The Way of the SEAL teaches key principles I recommend for every entrepreneur. Apply the lessons from the Navy SEALs and you too can be an elite warrior who leads and succeeds in the new global business paradigm.
Joe De Sena, Founder of Spartan Race
Mark is more than a Navy SEAL, he has the ability to teach all of us how to be one in everyday life.
Development Team Coach, National Hockey League
Thanks to you for making the trip out here and putting on a great event. I thought it was outstanding. In these two years, you’ve made a Huge Impact. I will be rewarding to start seeing the results. Looking forward to what’s next!
Just placed an order for 12 of the new versions of the book!!! Gonna be a good re-read for me and gifts for friends! Great stuff.
This is an excellent book – It is not simply a chest-thumping military book that throws around the “SEAL” brand to sell more. It is truly a way of life. It includes tools, techniques, values and principles – not all new or unique – but compiled into a simple to read and execute playbook.
I love this book. I read it over and over. I share the concepts with my wife, children, friends and colleagues. I’ve been following Mark Divine for about 5 years now through his SEALFIT programs and podcast. He is a genuine human being who wants to create a better world. Get the book and change your life.

Thank you for writing The Way of the SEAL. Only in chapter one, but I feel like it’s going to help clarify my thinking and change my life. I will never be a SEAL but I can still live by the principles, which I find very motivating. #thankful
Unbeatable Mind is one of those books that, if you have been searching for a long time to try and improve yourself and take your entire life to the next level, will give you the foundation to do so. Mark covers an extremely wide berth of material in this book, but in doing so I have found a way to take his principles and apply them to every aspect of my life, whether personal, professional, or physical.
Concretely, I have struggled with emotional intelligence and emotional control for most of my life. After reading about the concepts in this book, such as feeding the courage wolf, box breathing, and “becoming the zookeeper”, for the first time in my life I feel like I’m finally completely in control of them. It’s as if someone has given me the cheat codes to life.
I cannot recommend this book enough. If every single person read it and lived by it, the world would be a much better place.
This amazing book has helped me take my first steps toward my journey towards an unbeatable mind. A great resource for those who struggle with inner demons and are looking for outstanding advice to begin becoming the best version of themselves.
I have really enjoyed your books! I teach 6 graders and have used your books to teach on several occasions. Those books also inspired me to form a club to allow my students to complete a modified Murph Challenge, replacing pull ups with burpees. We completed the challenge and then placed flags on fallen heroes graves for Memorial Day.
I read all your books and they have really helped me in improving my physical health and establishing a purpose/path forward. Just wanted to say thank you again. I have shared your training with family and friends for safety and well being.
Dear Mark Divine, I don´t know if you have the time to read this, but in case you do: I want to tell you that I´m endlessly grateful that I have found your books! I´m a 15 year old austrian girl, and „The Way of the Seal“ and „Unbeatable Mind“ motivated me to take control over my life, rule my mind and crush my fears! You inspired me to go after my dream and change the world! Thank you very much for sharing your experience and wisdom with us; and stay amazing! With kind regards and great respect.
For fans of Joe Rogan this is a no brainer and a great way to mix it up. Awesome guests in a tight 1 hour show. All killer no filler, thanks Mark!

Outstanding variety in guests and topics, extremely inspirational delivery that never fails to make me reflect on how I can be better for my family, at work and for myself. This is a staple of my weekly routine.
CDR Divine, thanks for all the great podcasts and books. Former Marine here, now managing software engineers and leading Boy Scouts. I find great inspiration in your content and guests. Semper Fi!
As a therapist, I look for resources to advance the life of my clients. Divine’s Unbeatable Mind podcast will be on that list. He’s especially good for men, challenging but not shaming, nor does he hide behind the mask of an alpha male- he’s done his inner and outer work and it shows. Highly recommend this podcast.
This podcast contains amazing, eye-opening content. It has helped me change my day-to-day mindset and push through challenges with more courage. Top notch. Thanks Coach Divine!
