This is an awesome book. You feel like you are right with the seals as they go to kill or capture Bin Laden.
Also, I didn't see anything in this book that had not been on the news already.
Good for Mark Owen and Kevin Maurer.
Holter Graham does a great job reading this book.
Don't pass this up!
I read/listened to "man hunt" first. I am glad I did even though man hunt got a lot of the raid's facts wrong, it provides a clearer picture since no easy day focuses on the tactical side.
I wish he would have kept it completely politically neutral. He did for the most part but you could tell from some of the writing that troops have fox news on their TVs (although not called out by name)
This is an amazingly dull account of very dynamic events. No doubt the author is a disciplined, brave and accomplished soldier. Unfortunately he is also very shallow and has no world view nor literary talent. Read Manhunt by Peter Bergen instead.
No I would not read another book by the author. He had one story to tell and he told it.
He could have left out the his personal feelings about the President it was not relevant to the story. He claims this book was not political but he clearly puts in his personal thoughts about the President.
It was fine
it could have been cut down to the opperation. The begining was filler about the Navy Seals and there are better books out there that discuss that subject.
Great detail of the authors experience. The book deserves more applause, especially for the charites a majority of proceeds are going towards. I will purchase additional copies for the Holiday's to support our HERO's !! Thank-you to the author for your service & your bravery to write this book.
Gave me goose bumps.
One of my favorite books I've listened to. It was so engrossing, I didn't want to put it down.
Holter Graham performance was convincing. He sounded like he could have been a SEAL; he was comfortable with all the military acronyms and terminology.
This book does not go into the details of becoming a SEAL as many others have already done but instead talks about operations and as indicated int he title the killing of UBL. Very enjoyable, one you will get through quickly.
Narration was great, story very well told. superbly written
nothing to hide
the bin laden raid
laughed at times. parts reminded me of deployment
One of the best!!!
The primary of course.
No, but it was good.
all of the above
