    In America's new war, the first guns in the fight are special operations forces, including the Navy SEALs, specially trained warriors who operate with precision, swiftness, and lethal force. In the constantly shifting war on terror, SEAL units - small in number, flexible, stealthy, and efficient - are more vital than ever to America's security as they take the battle to an elusive enemy around the globe. This is essential listening for anyone who wants to know what goes into the making of America's best warriors.

    Would you listen to The Finishing School again? Why?

    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.

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.

  • The Red Circle: My Life in the Navy SEAL Sniper Corps and How I Trained America's Deadliest Marksmen

    Brandon Webb's experiences in the world's most elite sniper corps are the stuff of legend. From his grueling years of training in Naval Special Operations to his combat tours in the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan, The Red Circle provides a rare and riveting look at the inner workings of the U.S. military through the eyes of a covert operations specialist. Yet it is Webb's distinguished second career as a lead instructor for the shadowy "sniper cell" that makes his story so compelling.

    Robert says: "Decent story, narration left a lot to be desired."
    "Great story and I could listen to it over and over"

    Would you listen to The Red Circle: My Life in the Navy SEAL Sniper Corps and How I Trained America's Deadliest Marksmen again? Why?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
