For the past 10 years, Craig Weller and Jonathan Pope have trained people for the toughest SOF selection courses in the world. They've trained candidates for courses in every branch of the U.S. military, as well as five other countries, including British SAS selection.
Our clients have a 90% success rate which means 9 out 10 people make it through. (BUD/S and SFAS have drop-out rates ranging from 60-90%, FYI.)
In Building the Elite, they give a detailed look at their SOF training system - from big-picture principles to practical exercises and programming guidelines.

Amazing read some of the best analytical writing about performance and mindset i have read
This book exceeded my expectations. It has really opened my eyes to a whole new way of looking at training & practical situations. Highly recommended.
Whether SOF candidate or just a person looking to understand the many complexities of how we think, behave and perform to be at our best. An incredible source of intelligent, well researched information. The authors have found ways to improve the odds for all of us. Thank you Jonathan & Craig!
