HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | January 14, 2013 | Mass Market Paperbound

American Sniper: The Autobiography Of The Most Lethal Sniper In U.S Military History is rated 3.6667 out of 5 by 3.

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY CLINT EASTWOOD

He is the deadliest American sniper ever, called "the devil" by the enemies he hunted and "the legend" by his Navy SEAL brothers . . .

From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyle''s kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared him so much they placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow U.S. warriors, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle''s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting Read! Book is quite interesting to read. The first few chapters are a bit slow but then it picks up. Overall, a very interesting read and well worth it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No sir, not for me. REALLY boring! unless you got some weird fetish for autobiography's then no, this book is lame. The army stuff is, "slow". You wont get any tear jerkering or heart pounding war stories.
