    1. Powerful Peace: A Navy SEAL’s Lessons on Peace from a Lifetime of War isn’t just the latest hipster-friendly treatise on pacifism or the Vietnam-era cliché about a war being thrown and nobody attending. Rather, DuBois’s contribution to the peacemaking discourse is a deeply personal exposition on the development and proper application of the “smart power” concept that was first described by Harvard professor Joseph Nye two decades ago as a “combination of hard and soft power in effec [...]

    2. Powerful Peace is the book that every politicians or decisions-making persons in every governments and armies should read. Rob DuBois talk with the credibility of a man that knows the battlefield and that is one of the most trained and skilled warrior of the globe. His message for peace is that more relevant for it!The book contains a lot of true life examples about how our act and decision can greatly influence the outcome of a potentially conflicted situation.

    3. Teddy Roosevelt said "Speak softly and carry a big stick." Ronald Reagan believed in "Peace through Strength." Sting penned a song "If the Russians Love their Children Too." Rob takes those basic ideas, which are really just platitudes when they stand by themselves, and makes them real. Think of Roosevelt, Reagan and Sting as the policy authors, and Rob DuBois as the author of the policy implementation guide. I work in the defense industry and I can honestly say that reading Rob's book will impa [...]

    4. There are very few people in this world who understand that, in both war and peace, the key terrain is the five and a half inches between the left and right ears and the most powerful weapon the gray matter that lies within it. Like most who have smelled the cordite, Rob DuBois desires peace more than most, but understands the necessity of the use of force - only as a last resort. This book has many, highly valuable insights, lessons, and wisdom gained the hard way. But you don't have to be a wa [...]

    5. Rob wrote an incredibly encouraging, simple book to spread peace in our starved world. Everyone can do this and spread peace throughout. Rob's book is refreshing in that he expresses the need of force at times but gives the opportunity to make peace before getting to the point of having to use force. I'm so proud to call Rob, friend! I definitely recommend this book to all. Maybe we can make this world better for our kids.

    6. A very interesting book, it reminded me of the Robert Humphrey book "Values for a New Millennium". Mr. Humphrey also stressed looking at the humanity of the problem. I wish the author had ended with a bit more of a specific call to action.

    7. Great book- it makes you challenge your own thinking with each step. I agree we are all alike- we want peace, security, and to provide for our families. Having loved throughout the world- he is right on.
