No Hero: The Evolution Of A Navy Seal

by Kevin Maurer, Mark Owen
Read by Paul Michael

Penguin Random House Audio Publishing Group | November 11, 2014 | Audio Book (CD)

No Hero: The Evolution Of A Navy Seal is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
The second book by former Navy SEAL Mark Owen, following his multimillion-copy classic about the bin Laden mission No Easy Day, in which he tells the stories from his career that were most personal to him and that made him the operator and the person he is today

While Mark Owen’s instant New York Times bestseller No Easy Day focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author’s career, No Hero will be an account of the most personally meaningful missions from Owen’s thirteen years as a SEAL, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates, in both success and failure.

Mark Owen describes his intentions for his second book best: “I want No Hero to offer something most books on war don’t: the intimate side of it, the personal struggles and hardships and what I learned from them. The stories in No Hero will be a testament to my teammates and to all the other active and former SEALs who have dedicated their lives to freedom. In our community, we are constantly taught to mentor the younger generation and to pass the lessons and values we’ve learned on to others so that they can do the same to the guys coming up after them. This is what I plan to do for the reader of No Hero.”

Every bit as action-packed as No Easy Day, and featuring stories from the training ground to the battlefield, No Hero offers readers an unparalleled close-up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the men he served with capable of executing the missions we read about in the headlines.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book Tells the story perfectly of how Mark became the SEAL that he was. Written like that last one in the same descriptive detail that is able to draw the reader in and let them experience what he was thinking at that time in his life. The only complaint is some pages have "classified" information in them so the put the typical U.S Army black lines though them. They are annoying as in the middle of reading you stumble onto a paragraph of nothing but lines. If you can overcome skipping a few pages to continue reading the story you will be fine. If you liked No Easy Day then you will like this book as well.
