“The bin Laden story is the marquee event in No Easy Day, of course. But the formative steps in the author’s own story are just as gripping. Mr. Owen’s new information about the Abbottobad attacks adds a human element to much of what has been previously reported. There is no better illustration in No Easy Day that SEALs are ruthless pragmatists. They think fast. They adapt to whatever faces them. They do what they have to do.” –Janet Maslin, New York Times
“The book is a stomach-twisting close-up look at that historic mission in Abbottabad, told from the point of view of a super-elite member of SEAL Team Six who fired a bullet into bin Laden and helped carry away the corpse. Written in clean, polished prose... No Easy Day often reads like a gripping novel as the author recounts remarkably vivid details... No Easy Day puts you right there for every tense moment.” –Entertainment Weekly

For those who like military history, action, and cool stuff, this is definitely your book. Not to mention the insight into a turning point in the War on Terror.
To me it is also one more proof that the is a value in difference between people.
I certainly don't find the SEALs job appealing yet I see the real value in having people who find this line of work appealing and I'm thankful that we have them.
Similarly to the CIA "Jen" in the book, the book helped me to see the SEALs in a different light. Clearly some bright and intelligent men are willing to the work that many of us would not like to do, and they like doing it.
In No Easy Day, he details the lives of a handful of Americans serving in elite units fighting the ongoing war against Al-Quaeda and the Taliban.
The book is a page-turner that zips on at a breakneck pace. Owen writes with a quiet pride and steadiness about himself and his teammates. Despite the obvious restrictions on information release, No Easy Day is a coherent and engaging account of the mission.
Their story needed to be told.
