About the Author
CMDR. SCOTT WADDLE (RET.)
An inspirational leader with uncompromising ethical standards, Scott Waddle graduated at the top of his class at Annapolis. With twenty years' experience in the construction, maintenance, and operation of nuclear-powered submarines, he was handpicked from a highly competitive field of 250 naval officers to command a Los Angeles class fast-attack nuclear submarine. As commanding officer of the USS Greeneville, he managed a 140-man crew. He retired from active duty in October 2001 with the rank of commander. He and his wife, Jill have a daughter, Ashley.
KEN ABRAHAM is the author of more than 50 books. His recent works include the #1 New York Times bestseller, Let's Roll, which he co-authored with Lisa Beamer; Payne Stewart, the authorized biography, also a New York Times bestseller, which he wrote with the golfer's widow, Tracey Stewart; and Racing to Win, with former NFL Super Bowl winning coach and owner of NASCAR Winston Cup championship teams, Joe Gibbs. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

This is a leader (skipper) who know, understands, and practices that when you're sitting in the big seat you are responsible for all that happens under your command. And not to blame others for what transpired, unlike what appears to have happened of late.
Regarding the book itself, this book was quite interesting! I will pass it along to family members.
Did CDR Waddle feel bad about his actions? Yes. Did he apologize for his actions? Yes. However, something is missing here. It was almost like, I feel bad, I did wrong, it was an accident (and it was), but don't punish me.
Some military people will say that he was punished more than ample; he lost his command and his career. He was retired with a pension!
Other than that... I feel that CDR Waddle described much of the love of the fellow submariner that exemplifies the submarine force. The quality of the workers and the pride a submariner takes in his job. Good just isn't good enough.
I'm sure CDR Waddle is a good man. Good men make mistakes. Good men take responsibilities for their actions, pay for their mistakes and carry on. He appears to have done that, maybe not in the way that everyone would like or agree with.
