James B. Stockdale was a fighter pilot who was shot down during the Vietnam War. He was captured and imprisoned. This book captures how he used the stoic philosophy to get through this tough period of life.

What I learned:

  • How to stay calm under pressure.
  • Vietnam War history.
  • How to handle interrogations/torture.
  • How to make rational decisions as a leader.
