Publisher's Summary

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.

high praise

Would you consider the audio edition of Navy SEAL Training Class 144 to be better than the print version?

I have only listened to the audio.

What other book might you compare Navy SEAL Training Class 144 to and why?

I have read many books by former SEALS. They all give similar but unique to each author's experiences. Warrior Elite by Dick Couch.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scenes are when the instructors are trying to get them to tell where the bell is.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The intense training these men go through to complete training.

Any additional comments?

The narrator did a fantastic job.
