A very inspiring story. I appreciate the dedication and hard work of the military. This was a wonderful book written from a SEALs perspective. I highly recommend. 

Rob tells his side of the story of his career in the Navy SEALs. His story includes 2 of the very high profile missions, which have been broadcasted in the news, he was on and the details of what occurred. He also goes into details from the intense selection of making it as a SEAL to balancing family life while on deployment.

As always, it's humbling to read stories of individuals who willingly and voluntarily step up to the plate and take on difficult and dangerous missions for this country.

before you buy into this guy's stories about how heroic he is, search for "Rob O'Neil lie" on google. Gory details are included in this larger article on the team: https://theintercept.com/2017/01/10/the-crimes-of-seal-team-6/. Maybe he himself is not feeling so great about himself. His SEAL team has disowned him and he was arrested for DUI and could not give a speech afterward at Montana State University-Bozeman last year: http://mtstandard.com/crime-and-courts/msu-to-pay-o-neill-s-canceled-speaking-fee-from/article_16f7be00-7714-56e4-bd01-4ec5cdc23eac.html.

SPOILER ALERT: OBL has his head turned into an dug-out canoe at the end. I'm still not sure if this author or Mark Owen (of "No Easy Day") is telling the truth. I guess it doesn't really matter. I enjoyed the book.
