The Special Forces Qualifications Course - known as the Q Course - is demanding training that turns traditional fighters into unconventional warriors - Green Berets.

Special Forces prize wit and stamina as much as physical strength. The Q Course also tests leadership - it's an atmosphere that demands improvisation to respond to unstable surroundings.

Here, author Tony Schwalm reads a section of his book from when he moved into the second part of the Q Course that focused on team building.
