This book which is a non fiction narritve account has young men and women who want to be marines get the shot to become one and over come the hardest toughest most violent 90 days of their lives. If you're the type of person who likes books of yelling, team work, blood, and violence, The Boot is the book to read. Young kids who do not have any disipline, self awareness or confidence are motivate to become today's marines.I would recomend this book to the people that want to be in the military and athelets for how teamwork really works. This book will make you want to just keep on reading just to know what's going to happen next, and when you get toward the end you just want to buy another book just like this one because it teaches you so much about disipline and self confidence.
AMAZON.COM READER'S REVIEW
Great book about the inside of Parris Island boot camp. I bought this book when my husband went to Parris Island and it gave me comfort to read along as he was training.
as a marine boot in 1967 it was some different from what I went through but it was interesting just the same
