I would definitely listen to this book again just to be reminded just how much training there is after BUDS. The story you hear is always BUDS, and then all of a sudden you are a SEAL, but after listening to this book, there is at least 18 more months of intense training before you are a deploy-able Operator. It is amazing to hear about the training and schooling that goes into the making of a single Navy SEAL.
If I could have sat there and listened all day from beginning to end, I would have been a happy man. This story was amazing and descriptive and I wanted to be there... right there in all the action. Great build up to the climax of the story.
I would definitely listen to this book multiple times. The story is great and definitely makes you want to sit in the car and keep listening. Each specific section was interesting and really awesome to see it from an Operators perspective. I also liked the extra stories at the end of the book.
I think that if you are going to read a military book, you should at least know how to pronounce the common military jargon. He kept saying BUDS as B, U, D, S... or Helo as hello, among other jargon that was just so distracting every time it was said.
