The official tie-in book to the wildly popular Facebook page, featuring brand-new crazy, off-the-wall, outrageously funny, and downright “awesome” pearls of wisdom from real-life drill sergeants and instructors from all branches of the military.

Sweat dries. Blood clots. Bones heal. Suck it up, buttercup.

After his deployment in Afghanistan, Dan Caddy began swapping great drill sergeant stories by e-mail with other combat veterans—an exchange with friends that would grow into the dedicated Facebook page, “Awesome Sh*t My Drill Sergeant Said.” But what began as a comedic outlet has evolved into a robust online community and support network that conducts fundraisers for and donates to military charities, has helped veterans struggling with PTSD and other issues, and on numerous occasions, literally saved lives.

Now, Caddy shares more great DS stories—most never before seen—in this humorous collection. Often profane, sometimes profound, yet always entertaining, these rants from real life soldiers are interspersed with lively sidebars, Top 10 lists, stories from fans, one-liners, and more.

For anyone who has suffered a hard-ass manager (in uniform or not), Awesome Sh*t My Drill Sergeant Said will add a much needed dose of humor to the day.

    Awesome [Stuff] is very funny; and the greatest part is that, as the book progresses, the personal stories get more insightful and inspiring. Sometimes I had to put the book down because I was laughing so hard. Highly recommended!

  • Slightly dissapointing

    By Muttcheeks
    This book didn't live up to my expectations...but maybe that's just because they were so high. I chuckled a few times, but there were no laugh out loud moments. Not a bad book overall though. I read the whole thing in about an hour 15.
  • Fantastic.

    As a Drill Sergeant this book is as much entertainment as it is inspiration. Perfection in print.
  • Beware the hat!!!!!

    Awesome Sh*t My Drill Sergeant Said is the best book to come out this year!! Veterans and current Soldiers know the awe, fear and humor that is the Drill sergeant. He can be your worst enemy or your greatest friend. For those wanting a trip down memory lane or those just curious, this is the book for you. Warning ! Intense laughter may lead to falling out of your chair and friends and family looking at you like you need phycological assistance.
