I am pleased that Chris Kyle took the time to tell us such personal details about something I and most, are so removed from.
I feel informed, and as I have seen this war from a different perspective.
Real, personal, and insightful
I'm glad he was on our side!
I loved hearing from his perspective and Taya's. I have been telling all my friends and co-workers to read/listen to the book no matter what side of the political or moral stance you are on. Call him a hero or coward, a patriot or a murderer, this book reads like he is telling his family what his job was about. His job just happened to be a soldier. Written conversationally and read how I imagine he probably sounded (complete with a Texas accent!). It's funny, gut wrenching, and an honor to hear his account of his work AND personal life. Again, no matter which side of the fence you're on, this is a great story of a guy doing his job.On a personal note: It is an honor to have Chris Kyle call himself an American. A true soldier, patriot and brave man. I don't know if they make many men like him any more but I'm sure glad we had him on this earth as long as we did.
Tried going in with an open mind. Very honest and powerful story. Had read several negative reviews stating how arrogant Kyle came across. However, I found his story to be an insightful and raw glimpse of the brutality of modern warfare. Decent narration and pace.
