"Unflinching: The Making of a Canadian Sniper, is a deeply
personal retelling of the 38-year-old's life in the
military."--Matt Lennox, author of The Carpenter and Knuckle Head
"Unflinching is a frank and engaging biography, chronicling Mitic's transformation from troubled, awkward Brampton teen to self-assured infantryman."--Matt Lennox, author of The Carpenter and Knuckle Head "Edmonton Sun"
"Unflinching is a raw and candid memoir that follows the personal journey of a 20 year Canadian Armed Forces CAF Veteran and Sniper Team Leader Jody Mitic."--Matt Lennox, author of The Carpenter and Knuckle Head "The Western Sentinel"
"Unflinching is a raw and sometimes brutal journey into the heart and life of a soldier."--Matt Lennox, author of The Carpenter and Knuckle Head "Ottawa Magazine"
"Unflinching is one of those books that you just can't put down. What a book! What a life! Jody is an inspiration. He never quit, he never gave up, no matter how tough the road was. This book will make you proud that Jody is a Canadian."--Don Cherry
"Unflinching is pure Jody Mitic--smart, funny, honest, and tough. I think the first time I saw Jody he was kicking the hell out of the army half marathon on his new feet; the next time, he was a newly elected Ottawa councillor, and now he's an accomplished storyteller. He'd be almost irritatingly capable if he wasn't also a lovely human being."--Christie Blatchford, author of Fifteen Days: Stories of Bravery, Friendship, Life and Death from Inside the New Canadian Army
"I've read it all, start to finish, in one enthralled session. Unflinching is raw, personal, unforgiving, unrelenting and draws one into Jody's life, with a vividness and a colour that's visceral."--General Rick Hiller, former Chief of Defence Staff for the Canadian Forces
"Over the last several years, Jody Mitic has been a larger-than-life figure in the military community. Reading his experiences in his own clear, humble, funny, and no-bullshit prose has offered insight to the very real human at the core of his story. I would recommend Unflinching to any Canadian, military or civilian."--Matt Lennox, author of The Carpenter and Knuckle Head
