Publisher's Summary

A highly decorated Navy SEAL shares stories of his years of combat experience in Afghanistan, providing leadership insights that will shift your view of yourself and provoke life-altering change.

Before leaving for combat in Afghanistan, Navy SEAL Thom Shea promised his wife that he would write to his children in case he didn't make it back. What was initially intended to be a private memoir for his family turned into a powerful set of lessons for anyone striving to perform beyond what they believe possible. Shea's stories, while action-packed and entertaining, provide incredible insights on leadership, family, and excellence.

Don't let detractors deter you from getting it!

Someone, perhaps even just a single person under several aliases, is trying to smear Thom's good name, in an effort to make him look like a bad person. This can be witnessed in the Amazon reviews of this book.

I watched a talk on YouTube with Thom, and liked his genuine style and way of thinking. To me, he comes across as a soft, well-intentioned guy. Perhaps the smear-campaign is by someone who's a less good guy, somehow being offended by Thom's humane way of relating to his work and colleagues. As you can read in the book, Thom is an honest guy, not afraid of saying he's a sentimental dude who can cry tears, get annoyed by socks crumbling up in his boots during operations, and such.

The book has also gotten some criticism for being poorly edited, lacking flow. I disagree with that. I was reluctant to get the book, as I like well-written, well-edited books as much as any other book aficionado. I'm glad I did get it! It's well-written, well-structured, and one of those books I felt like relistening to, as soon as it ended. For me it was a real page-turner.

It's also unique in how it also features occasional writings by her wife. It's a book not just about being a SEAL, but also living in a relationship, dependency on your partner, supporting each other, as well as an overall theme on being mindful and deliberate about the thoughts you think, and the way you talk to yourself. All stuff right down my alley.

Overall, the content in the book speaks VOLUMES about Thom's sincerity and wamth as a person, with high probability-rate putting my money on Thom rather than those (or that) poor detractor(s) who are trying to put him and this book down.

It's a great book. Not "ze bestes bookz evaz!" but a great book, worthy of your time:)

Listend to it twice!

I listened to this twice in about 30 to 45 days time. I just finished it and could listen again shortly I bet. This is not your normal navy seal book about BUD'S and a few missions. This is basically a diary with heartfelt guidance for his kids that translates to all of us. it's about family and what it takes to be strong and not let your inner voice get you down. Thank you for your service and for sharing this book with us Mr. Shea.

Lots of really good lessons for everyone to help them with their everyday life. I'd say good for any age over 14.

ADAMANTINE!

Outstanding book written by a warrior in war. Thom Shea (SEAL) tells a very balanced story of family life, his way of life, and combat and unravels the common thread: himself. ADAMANTINE is Shea's mantra! He takes you through ADAMANTINE as it applies to combat, survival, and love for his family. I highly recommend this book.

Unbreakable challenge participant

I just had the privilege to meet Thom in person while participating in his challenge. It was an honor to meet this author in person and hear his amazing first hand account stories. His passion for helping others achieve greatness in themselves is absolutely inspiring. Thank you for helping me add more tools to my quest for self discovery. Cheers Greg M.

Great listen.

Narration was perfect. Content was superb. We all need to work on our internal dialogue to keep ourselves at our best.
