Learn to adapt and overcome! A guide for living a virtuous life based on the principles of the United States Marine Corps.
Virtue, by definition, is the moral excellence of a person held up by belief in good values and principles. They are the building blocks of character. And yet the concept of virtue is one that this most recent generation seemed to have left behind replacing it with self-entitlement, instant gratification, and other vices. Warrior's Book of Virtues seeks to bring it all back to the forefront. Written by United States Marine Corps veterans, Warrior's Book of Virtues contain time-tested principles such as perseverance, respect, self-discipline as well as more traditional virtues such as justice, prudence, fortitude and integrity and more importantly how to achieve these in every day life in easy and practical ways.
