I didn't read the print version
It reminded me of some of my own experience in training with the US Army in the 1980s. The author wrote candidly and frequently made the association between the immediate details of his mission with the global context.
I particularly enjoyed the author's description of the selection and qualification experience. I felt like I was there with him.
The reality of serving on a counter terrorism task force in the 20th century.
The story is riveting, and the performance spot on. It gives the listener a rare opportunity to see that these larger than life heroes, these iconic, mythical fighting machines are actually just people; remarkably gifted, insanely disciplined and tremendously selfless people, but flesh and blood none the nonetheless. I thank Eric Haney for his service to our Nation and for his unwavering honesty.
This book describes the formation and development of one of the most important military groups ever created by the U.S. military. These soldiers are nothing short of extraordinary. These are the men who keep us safe so that we can enjoy our freedom.
Couldn't put down, pleasant narrator. I highly recommend. The descriptions of training are vivid and allow the reader to experience just a glimpse into these heroes lives.

Writing is solid and interesting. Gives enough detail without getting overly complicated, and keeps a good pace throughout. The reader started off fairly dull, but quickly grew on me, and I appreciated the even tone more and more. I prefer the reader to not try and interpret the emotions of the writer too much when they're not the same person. 4/5 overall. Interesting military autobiography with good storylines.
