Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Impressive amount of detail. A very real and tragic story, which makes one wonder "is there a lot more behind White House doors that need revealing"? A great read, and a great "page~turner".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Jon Krakauer did it again! This is an amazing book that'll keep you questioning everything right from the start. Pat Tillman has quite a story that can surprise most people like me. I don't have much of an interest in football but Tillman's change in character throughout the book really grasped my attention. Krakauer masterfully told the legacy of Pat Tillman for us to learn from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting, Informative, Inspiring, ...and sad I knew of the Pat Tillman story as a professional athlete / patriot who died tragically and, possibly, unnecessarily. This book, which I happened to pick up as a spur of the moment read, was riveting. There was as much to Pat Tillman as a man, a son, and a husband as there was to Pat Tillman as an athlete and soldier. His death was a great loss to his wife, his family, his sport, the Army, and possibly society in general. The actions of the US Government and the Army immediately following Tillman's death were shameful and deplorable. I find myself believing more and more that the greatest threat to world peace in 2012 is the neo-conservative government of the United States and the information in this book certainly reinforces that belief. Still, at the end of the day, this was a very interesting story of a promising young man whose life was wasted by war. How many more will there be?
