Can't help but admire the author and his interesting life. For the second part of the book as a Navy Seal I didn't expect the author not to describe a single shot fired in anger on any battlefield.

Didn't want to put this book down. The humility in Mr. Greitens's outlook on life is refreshing. After reading, I will buy a copy to keep the mission alive.
