Self-help & personal development

The first-ever book to include authentic diary accounts of a 20-year-old recruit's experience training as a Royal Marines Commando. Becoming the 0.1% explores the psychology behind what it takes to be in the 0.1%, and shares practical insight into how to build an elite mindset.

Historical recruitment campaigns to become a Royal Marines Commando drew on a harrowing but intriguing narrative: 99.9% Need Not Apply.

In 2005, only one in a thousand applications for the Royal Marines were successful in reaching the end of training, earning the Coveted Green Beret - a world renowned symbol of excellence. Becoming the 0.1% is the first-ever diary account of this training regime, charting the odds stacked journey of a 20-year-old recruit and the psychological underpinnings written by him 14 years later.

Each week of training is accompanied by lessons on psychological short-comings and performance. It uses real-life and often terrifying experiences to describe to the reader the psychological edge needed to succeed and cultivate a 0.1% mindset.
