Publisher's Summary

Follow America's elite warriors through the military's most grueling training and learn how they survive real special operations.

Of the 18 months required to become a Navy SEAL, one week will cause over half of the trainees to quit ("ring the bell"). Only the toughest make it through. In Hell Week and Beyond, Scott McEwen takes the listeners to the sands of Coronado Beach in San Diego, where Navy SEALs are put through the most grueling training known to mankind. Grit, commitment, heart, and soul are needed to become a SEAL, because these are the elite forces who go into the toughest battles for America.

Many of the most well-known SEAL warriors have been interviewed for this book, providing the stories of what got them through and the humor of those that made it. (Those that make it almost always have one thing in common: humor. Find out why!)

Part Top Gun, part Bull Durham, this book delivers that goods for those in the know, as well as general listeners who admire the elite forces for all they do.

Motivating listen

great listen to get you fired up. the political rants, in my opinion, only detracted from the story. could've done without. well crafted, interesting, motivating. great to listen while on a run.

Good Simple Lessons

I just wish he didn’t share his personal political beliefs as those were irrelevant to what he was trying to guide the listener via the Hell Week. Other than that, it was a solid read with simple basic lessons we all know are important in leadership and life.

Fascinating Story with one caveat

The story itself is fascinating and makes you realize just how far people can push themselves to accomplish a goal. The narrative style is interesting, putting the listener in the shoes of an aspiring Seal. I could have done without the author's snide political commentary.
