I commute about an hour each way to work and listen to audio books enroute. Sometimes I don't want to get out of my car because I'm at a really good place!
I was captured by this book from the first word. No secrets are given away, but you get a good idea of how and why things are done the Seal way. The narrator, Holter Graham, does an excellent job and brings life to the written word. I listened to it on the way to work and looked forward to the commute each day. "Mark" and the others are truly brave men who keep our country safe. I could see the hand of God keeping them safe during their missions. Bless them.
I had a friend who was on a seal team for a few years. I had a lot of respect for him then and now I have a lot more respect for him after this book. This was a great insight in to the minds of these men. I say thank you to these guys.
I like the "NO B.S." tone he brings to the story. There are a few other books I wish he would read. The best produced book I have heard yet.
Yes. It was hard to stop.
The best Ive purchased yet. A great audiobook describing some of the greatest americans on earth
Captures your interest from the start. You can appreciate just how amazing these young men are. They don't ask for praise, they are there to do a job and they get it done.
I like how you are drawn in to the action. Makes you feel that you are there.
Have not listened to other books by Graham.
Makes me proud to know that we have this caliber of person serving our country!
Everyone should read or listen to this book. I feel like I got the truth about the mission that killed our # 1 enemy. Makes you appreciate the Special Forces that serve our country.
We are building fantastic warriors throughout the world, and they want to use their skill sets, but in listening to this book all I can think about is the impression we left on the woman and children at the compound, watching the Americans kill. Yes, I know they killed thousands of us, however I hope a day comes that the only weapon in war will be debate and words.
I totally respect all the Seals for what they are doing to protect us, and I'm very thankful they are on our side.
My work requires me to travel often. My family requires complete attention while at home, with minimal time left over to sit and read a book. Listening to "No Easy Day" on Audible permitted me to listen while on the road. The frontline account of the story itself was gripping, and made time spent traveling enjoyable. The ability to bookmark where I left off and the 30 second rewind feature on Audible makes listening more convenient.
The story of killing any human being could often be construed as morose. Yet "No Easy Day" was surprising written well and with compassion.
Holter Graham's voice was pleasant on the ears. I've listened to other books on Audible where the reader's voice did not match up with the story being read. Unlike Holter Graham's performance on No Easy Day, the wrong voice could be a distraction from the actual story.
The fronline account, especially the parts when the HELO went down and the action of moving through the compound to where UBL was found, could only have been told by an SF operative who was actually there. This added credibility to the story.
Kudos to the author who I believe wrote the story well without compromising the confidentiality of military SOP. This in and of itself must have been a difficult task to accomplish. Unfortunately, other authors have not been as successful. (I.e. "LT. Col. Anthony Shaffer" with "Operation Dark Heart") which was redacted into swiss cheese by the government's editorial staff.
The detail of the story was awesome...
When he described the events leading up to the raid. And the fact that the author was truthful in how the story was written and his reasons for writing it.
Raid that brought some peace to the world... The Untold story with all the mystery behind Seal Team 6...
This is one book I would recommend that be added to the School reading list and worth reading over again as for adults you want to end the mystery Seal Team 6... Read this
Well worth listening to. A big story that all should understand.
Woman who did the investigation which led to the intelligence that enabled the mission.
The prose was elementary and at times shamelessly macho.
For a classic American story, the author would have benefitted from better editing and writing.
