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.
Interesting read? Sure.
Great military read? No. But I'm happy to have the majority of the proceeds of sales of this book go to help veterans.
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.
