Publisher's Summary

Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs in a powerful story of contemporary global anti-terrorism. Inspired by true events, the story combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the minute battlefield technology and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure. Act of Valor takes listeners deep into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained group of warriors in the modern world.

When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home. Each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the deadly terror plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they engage in an epic firefight with an outcome that has potentially unimaginable consequences for the future of America.

If you enjoyed the movie, you will love this!

This audio book filled in all the gaps of the movie. I really loved the detail of the SWCC boats unloading with their mini guns in the movie (it was my favorite part). The audio book fills in the detail of how bad @ss those guys are and how the boats got there. I loved all the detail and I learned a lot. I know the story is fiction but it's enjoyable to hear.

Enjoyable listen, with one exception.

I enjoyed this book, with one exception, which I will get to. The story was very good, with plenty of action. Some of it was very predictable, but, acceptable. Steven Weber gave a good performance, with one exception, which made me grind my teeth every time he did it. He pronounced corpsman: corpse-man instead of korman. A minor thing to most, but, it was like chalk on a blackboard to me. Don't get me wrong, I like Steven Weber. I always have; in movies and tv. And I liked his performance except for that one thing.

Fantastic from minute one to the end

I didn't want it to end. Fast-paced, action-packed with heart--this story is full of characters you'll love and then never want to leave. This book could have kept going for another ten hours and I would have kept listening. I couldn't put this book down; I just had to know what happened. It is the best military book I've read in along time and now I'm aching for more! The writing was in a class by itself; Steven Weber brought his considerable talent to bear in the narration and he really made it come alive in a way that the print or kindle book never could have. What an amazing story about an amazing group of men. I want to fly out to CA and thank the SEALs for all their hard work and dedication after reading this.

Good story. Great men.

While I can't say there were twists and turns, I still really enjoyed the story...especially the knowledge of tactics and weapons. I have tremendous admiration for the men who serve our country in this manner.

Steven Weber did a rock-solid job of narrating. I've heard him before, and would be glad to listen to him read any day. There were a couple of niggling pronunciation issues that came up often (Kalashnikov and corpsman), but other than that, he was the perfect blend of articulation and accessibility as a narrator.

Go SEALs

This is a very good book: a novelization of the movie. It leads you through the exciting and close paced world of US Special Operations Forces. As I was reading, I wondered where some of this material originated. You can't make this up. I want to see the movie.
