If your looking for a historical book from the founders perspective this book is for you. If you are looking for training/missions (other than operation Eagle Claw which is cover in detail) read Inside Delta Force.
No, but its not a reflection of the book. There are very few books that a listen to again.
There is more civil war history in relation to the battles and Grant vs. Lee than I expected.

We get to know the Si not seen on TV while his humor is still prevalant throughout the book.
Good book but not great. I wanted to listen to the full book before watching the movie. It didn't leave me excited but I'm glad to learn the untold side of the behind the seen aspects of the CIA. It defiantly gave me a new appreciation for the Canadian government.
This is truly one of the best books I've listened to. It should be required reading for High School graduates. The ONLY negative is some strong language, but it is very understandable for the conditions these heroes faced. At times I found myself laughing and on many occasions I was in tears as I related to the Marcus's family.
Honest, insightful, humorous
The honest explanation of how politics hindered these men from completing their tasks.
Aside from "Inside Delta Force" it is the best military book I've read (heard). They are both books that should be required reading for all High School graduates, they truly remind us of the sacrifices made that allow us to live in a free society.
Intense, educational, and funny
I loved the detail that went into the training and selection process.
I laughed on many occasions.
