The United States Navy's Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training is one of the toughest military training in the world. In this behind-the-scenes account, listeners join New York Times best-selling author Stephen Templin in his journey as a trainee in Class 144.
Templin and his classmates endure Hell Week: five-and-a-half days of swimming, hallucinating, enduring frequent hypothermia, running more than 200 miles, and doing over 20 hours per day of extreme physical training, having slept only four hours total for the week. After Hell Week, they face more challenges. These experiences - Steve's insights into some of the psychology needed to overcome seemingly impossible challenges, teamwork, and an unexpected conclusion - make this a memorable adventure.

good story of navy seal training, however the author quits after HELL WEEK and never says why
I have only listened to the audio.
I have read many books by former SEALS. They all give similar but unique to each author's experiences. Warrior Elite by Dick Couch.
My favorite scenes are when the instructors are trying to get them to tell where the bell is.
The intense training these men go through to complete training.
The narrator did a fantastic job.
