About the Author
Don Mann (CWO3, USN) has for the last thirty years been associated with the Navy SEALS either as a platoon member, assault team member, boat crew leader, or advanced training officer; and more recently program director preparing civilians to go to BUD/s (SEAL Training). Up until 1998 he was on active duty with SEAL Team 6. Since his retirement, he has deployed to the Middle East on numerous occasions in support of the war against terrorism. Many of the active duty SEALs on SEAL Team 6 are the same guys he taught how to shoot, conduct ship and aircraft takedowns, and trained in urban, arctic, desert, and river and jungle warfare, as well as Close Quarters Battle (CQB) and Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT). He has suffered two broken backs, two cases of high altitude pulmonary edema, and multiple other broken bones, in training or service. He has been captured twice during operations and lived to talk about it.
Co-writer Ralph Pezzullo is a New York Times bestselling author and award-winning playwright, screenwriter and journalist. His books include Jawbreaker (with CIA operative Gary Berntsen).

I even got my grandmother to read this book!
Don Mann gives also you a good sense of how life is like as a SEAL. You get a feel for the ups and the downs of life as a SEAL; i.e. the broken marriages.
If you want to know what it is like to be a Navy SEAL, read this book. Don Mann takes you INSIDE the life of a Navy SEAL.
There are some very good SEAL books available. However, this is the best!!!
Full disclosure, there are (many) parts of this book that are redacted for the benefit of security and confidentiality. I know some have posted frustrations with this fact, but by leaving these elements in the book, I believe it lends an air of "mystery" to the reading, as you can't help but wonder just what's behind the black marks that only those who were there will ever know.
If you're into an exciting, real-life read that will leave you feeling grateful for those that have dedicated their lives to protecting us, then this book is definitely for you. Regardless of how you feel about war or your political stance, you cannot deny that we're all sleeping better at night thanks to folks like Chief Mann (even though many never even realize it).
