“Extreme Ownership” Storms On To Conservative Bestseller List

List is for week of October 28-November 3, 2015, and is announced exclusively on The Mike Gallagher Show.

WASHINGTON, DC – Taking a cue from American Sniper and Lone Survivor, two decorated Navy SEALs, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin, storm the Conservative Bestseller List with their new book, Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALS Lead and Win.  While not being household names, the book lands at the No. 3 spot surpassing other high profile books authored by Bill O’Reilly, Ben Carson, and Glenn Beck.

In Extreme Ownership, Willink and Babin share hard-hitting, Navy SEAL combat stories and how they translate them into lessons for business and life.  They served together in the most highly decorated Special Operations unit during the war in Iraq, participating in historic triumphs for U.S. forces in Ramadi.

“In a surprising feat for the just released and little known Navy SEAL-authored book, Extreme Ownership has beaten out books authored by O’Reilly, Carson, and Beck,” said Christopher Malagisi, Editor of the Conservative Book Club.  “It looks like the GOP presidential candidates took a page from their book last night as they took “extreme ownership” of the debate from the mainstream media.”

Both had also served with another decorated Navy SEAL veteran, Chris Kyle, author of the bestselling book and blockbuster movie, American Sniper.  Leif Babin is also married to Jenna Lee, the Fox News co-host of Happening Now. Anecdotes
