    Richard Dawkins' brilliant reformulation of the theory of natural selection has the rare distinction of having provoked as much excitement and interest outside the scientific community as within it. His theories have helped change the whole nature of the study of social biology, and have forced thousands to rethink their beliefs about life.

    Practically, drivel. Old information, presented in a sanctimonious and patronizing manner. Dawkins recent, public rants enforces my view that he's got a God complex of epic proportion...oh, yes, he doesn't believe in God. Don't waste your money as I did...does Audible have a return policy?

    When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six—a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes listeners deep inside the world of Navy SEALs and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL - the toughest and longest military training in the world.

    Story

    Well, it's a decent enough "story", but it's not all about SEAL Team Any Number...it's about Howard Wasdin...from being whooped on by a (tough?) stepdad to his spiritual "release" as a chiropractor. I'm guessing the book was written as a general auto-biography of Wasdin, interesting as that might be, and when the UBL drama came about, perhaps re-packaged as a (specifically) SEAL Team Six memoir. There's a fair amount of ST6 commentary, but it's more story telling than operational insight. Whatever floats your (inflatable) boat, I suppose.

    Reading the other critiques, I don't know if Wasdin is or isn't what he says he was. If you care about that, do some research before buying the book. If you don't care, it's a quick and easy listen...I suppose.
