I felt compelled to write a review because I wanted to counter the one above - to offer a different perspective. I appreciate that this book was moving to some; however, I found this book to be boring and the narrator annoying. I didn't finish it.
This is a simple little gut check of a book. Simple and concise - he lists the challenges to success and them how to beat them. A good, quick read.
This is the best leadership book I have read by a civilian. No BS. A lot of leadership books have 5 hours of useful content and 4 hours of fluff. This book doesn't. I felt like the entire book was top notch content.
The two books in this series are the best special ops fiction books that I have ever read. They are more realistic than most. These elite operators make mistakes and they die. They get soft for a second and they pay the price. Their families pay. The teams run out of time and resources at the end and people die, bombs explode. These guys speak like operators and relate to one another like the men they are. I highly recommend this series.
So many of the reviews I have read about the book claim that it is dark. I found the story to be a brutally honest vista into an a part of America that I had never experienced. MacLeod Andrews does a phenomenal job with the narration and the writing is very good.
