Former Lieutenant Jason Redman had a legendary career as a SEAL, from 1995-2013, and was deployed to Columbia, Peru, Afghanistan and Iraq, where he served as a team assault force commander. In western Iraq alone, he conducted forty capture-kill missions with his men and captured more than 120 Al Qaida insurgent leaders and fighters.
But the high-stakes of combat are only part of his story. THE TRIDENT: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader is an intense and unforgettable story of a man’s determination to overcome adversity no matter the cost. Redman’s journey—from his training as a SEAL and the early years when he struggled to find the balance between bravery and bravado, to his near-death and subsequent recovery—is the evolution of a modern warrior, husband, and father. A man who has come to embody the never-say-die spirit that defines this elite fighting force.

LEARN HOW TO OVERCOME ADVERSITY WITH PROVEN HABITS AND MINDSETS TAUGHT BY RETIRED NAVY SEAL AND NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR JASON REDMAN
Adversity can often catch you by surprise and leave you struggling with what to do next.
What if you could confront any adversity, from the biggest challenges—the loss of your job, divorce, health issues, bankruptcy—to normal daily challenges—a late flight, a disappointing phone call, a missed promotion, a bad day—and not just survive it, but thrive afterwards?
Redman was horrifically wounded in Iraq in 2007 when he was shot at close range through the face and arm. After 40 surgeries, including extensive facial reconstruction and skin grafts, he came back from this experience stronger than ever—despite carrying scars and injuries he will have for the rest of his life.
Redman went on to launch two successful companies and speaks all over the country on how to build better leaders through his Overcome mindset.
Overcome is based on extensive research and interviews with America’s toughest warriors—including retired 4-star Admiral William McRaven, retired Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, retired 4-star General Stanley McChrystal, and others. In the book, Redman teaches you:
- How to survive any life ambush
- How to move from defense to offense using the proactive techniques of SEAL teams
How to strengthen your endurance during long-term trials
How to rediscover and thrive in your life purpose
How to lead your team (whether in business or family) to success
How to compete with the top 1% in your field
How to stay the course even when you want to quit
This book will clarify why some people move through adversity and others fall underneath it — and how can you be counted among those who will Overcome.
