Publisher's Summary

Journalist Michael J. Mooney reveals the life story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the American Sniper, from his Texas childhood up through his death in February 2013. A brutal warrior but a gentle father and husband, Kyle led the life of an American hero and legend. His heroism and reputation in the military service earned him the nickname "the devil" among insurgents and the nickname The Legend among his SEAL brethren, but his impact extended beyond that after he came home, through his work with fellow veterans.

Mooney also sheds light on the life of the suffering fellow veteran who killed Kyle and interviews those closest to the late SEAL. The Life and Legend of Chris Kyle is an honest portrayal of the life of a man whose memorial service brought thousands of people to Cowboys Stadium - the most celebrated war hero of our time.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Ok

I have read American Sniper before I read this book. With that being said my expectation of the book was higher than I have received. It's a good book of you are going to read it before you read American Sniper.

Very moving.

Where does The Life and Legend of Chris Kyle: American Sniper, Navy SEAL rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is at the top of my list. His story is very moving and heartbreaking.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Life and Legend of Chris Kyle: American Sniper, Navy SEAL?

When the story of his youth was being read, he was just an ordinary guy who was so very humble about his abilities.

Which scene was your favorite?

The part that included the details of his funeral. It was very moving and felt as if I was there.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A true American hero.

True American Hero

Chris Kyle was a shining example of a selfless and honorable man of extraordinary skill and tenacity on the battlefield and yet an amazing sense of humility and self deprecation in life in general. He was the kind of man who our young people should know about as a wonderful example of a true patriot. This short essay by Michael Mooney reflects those attributes to the letter.
