Narration and writing were good, story just not that exciting. Very detailed look at BUDS through following of a class. Most of it about hell week it seems.
I focus mainly on History, Endurance Sports and Science/Speculative Fiction books.
I am an amateur Obstacle Course Athlete and Martial Artist. I recently participated in the Battlefrog Series Obstacle Course Races organized by the Navy Seals. I highly recommend this race series. I purchased this book to get insight into Seal training and to prep for my race mentally. To say that these men are fitter than any pro or amateur athlete I am aware of would be an understatement. This book is a daily diary of the Navy Seal training, and the regiment dwarfs any NFL training camp or fighting routine. If you are interested in understanding what it really takes to being shape, both mentally and physically this book will provide some context. I enjoyed it tremendously.
Running with the Kenyans, Life on the Run, Inside Seal Team Six.
Military personnel will enjoy this book and it is accessible to non-military (like myself), who are just interested in how Seal train and become Seals. Eye opening.
He did a good job. With this type of material it is possible to sound condescending or fawning in praise. He did neither. He delivered the facts so taht the listening can absorb and understand the materiel in a clear manner.
What these men endure is very impressive. As a civilian I came away with respect but also some life lessons. Everyone can give their best and dedicate themselves to their goals. This book may not be template for the average athlete but it is very inspirational.
If you are interested in this material, I highly recommend the Battlefrog Race Series organized by navy Seals. It is a way to interact with these men and gain insight into what we could all be if we applied the navy Seal attitude in our personal lives.
Learning more in-depth on what it actually takes to become a Navy Seal.
Was a great book to fill in some of the blanks on how hard BUD's truly is.
Great book it takes you into the BUDS class of 228 and tells about their personal training and comment win
