  1. I have read most so far

  2. Jack Reacher is one on my most favorite characters. He is right up there with Jack Ryan, Sr. and Jr., the Gray Man, Mitch Rapp, Scot Harvath, Gabriel Allon, and several more.
    Shannon, I can see so many similarities in what we do and Jack Reacher’s approach to life I could fill these pages. Reacher’s rules, rule!
    Good job!

  3. Definitely a Jack fan! Lot of good lessons there, Shannon.

  4. I have read all of the Jack Reacher books and love his “Can-do” attitude.

    I just saw a great saying at my gym: “If you think you want to quit, ask yourself why you started”.

  5. Based on your recommendation to read Matterhorn, which was very good (although took me back to a time when I lost friends in Viet Nam), I guess I’ll have to start reading Jack Reacher. Thanks!

    • Thank you, Rob. Matterhorn is truly moving and impactful.

  6. Big Jack fan. He always overcomes without relying on others or technology to bail him out. His thought processing prior to overcoming adversity gives him the edge.
