Training - hard but effective

Just finished reading Making the Corps by Thomas E. Ricks. Deals with the first 11 weeks of training in US Marine Corps.
The Corps had it's own version of Deepcut and training was drastically revised but remained very hard and demanding - more than was shown in Full Metal Jacket.
Too much to lay out here for debate but I would strongly recommend that anyone with any interest in motivation and Army training get hold of a copy and read it well. The Corps has even harder difficulty in the recruits it gets and this in itself is a major challenge. Costs less than a pint of beer.
