Rated 3 out of 5 by from :-) a detailed account about the mission which breaks all conspiracies about how osama bin laden was killed. after reading this book, instead of being interested in the entire bin laden mission i was more amaze by what actually were the navy seals and what was their training like. This book became more like a navy seal tell it all kind of biography which involved a mission call capturing osama bin larden. If you somehow didn't like reading about warfare, guns and more high tech equipments that the navy seals used it probably would be better to just watch the movie "Zero Dark Thirty" but i enjoyed both.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent It's always great reading a first hand account, especially from someone with a great deal of integrity. Even if only half of what is in this book was true (and I believe it's a lot higher than that) it would still be an incredible read. So much respect for these guys that do what so many of us can't even imagine. Thanks to them, we can sit on in our easy chairs, scotch in hand and read about what greater men than us have done. Thank you Mr. "Owen" and thanks to all the brave men and women that protect us every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing This is a huge inspiration. I, I just do t know what to say. Reading this book was so amazing in the whole story just put me in awe. The story of how Seals sacrificed their lives is truly breathtaking. I will pray for all that have been involved and all that have-will be affected by these missions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No easy day Not a bad book. The author's style leaves a bit to be desired but for a guy who has spent the last 11 years killing people and has no experience writing I think he did an okay job. Its my understanding that the author was quite limited in what he could disclose and that def shows. Its too bad we will never get the whole story behind this thing. With that said, if you are wanting to learn more about these events or want a quick and fun read you'll enjoy this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exciting. Couldn't put it down. Nice intro to the life as a SEAL. Full of pride but not proud or boastful. This is not a story about killing Osama, but life of a SEAL member who happen to be at the right place at the right time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than Hollywood. Very well written account of the Navy SEALS and the take down of Osama bin Laden without the media spin. These guys actually do things young men dream of doing. Could hardly put the book down.
