" . . . Joe is the consummate professional with a 'can do' attitude that inspires and motivates others to do their best!" -Dr. Dale Comstock, MSG (Ret.) US Army Delta Force, author of American Badass
LONE OPERATOR is the true story of a modern-day Spartan. From very humble beginnings, Joseph Teti overcame poverty, tragic loss and crippling phobias to serve in not one, but three special-operations units. A man who repeatedly defied the odds, he survived brutal combat in Afghanistan and Iraq as a member of what is widely considered the most secretive government counter-terrorist unit in the world. While serving at the "tip of the spear" in special operations, he learned skills that propelled his civilian business career. A seasoned entrepreneur, Teti shares the critical skills needed to not just survive in today's chaotic and crazy world, but to thrive. The former co-star of the hit show Dual Survival, on the Discovery Channel, has endured in some of the harshest environments on the planet, from the jungles of Sri Lanka, to the deserts of Oman to the glaciers of Norway. He is considered a subject-matter expert on wilderness and urban survival and has been featured on the cover of several magazines. His life story is one of the most remarkable examples of overcoming all odds, to win at all costs, and to always raise the bar to become better each day.
Joseph Teti is a veteran of both US military and US government special operations units. He is a former Force Recon Marine, Army Special Forces "Green Beret", and a former operator in a highly classified government counter-terrorist unit. A former stockbroker and highly seasoned entrepreneur, he has taken years of lessons learned, hard knocks and successes as a businessman, staggering personal loss and the fame and stresses of a TV celebrity, to craft Lone Operator into a survival manual for the 21st century.
