    A tale of Counterterrorism

    Some of the reviewers imply that Aaron Cohen makes himself out to be a "hollywood action hero". Not True. Its just that he, and other troops in elite units, sound like they are bragging when discussing what they have done and been through.<BR/><BR/>This is a very interesting look into the isralei counterterrorist units and the tactics they use. It also is a look into the psyche of someone who undergoes extreme training and takes the life of someone while in the line of duty. I commend Mr. Cohen for not sugar coating his reactions to the stress he was under. I also wish more of our law and policy makers would pay closer attention to the examples set by the Israel in how "homeland" security is done.

    A peek behind the lines of an elite army unit and into the life of a boy growing into a man

    The author didn't research this book; he lived it. You learn how one becomes an elite army unit soldier, the pressure of such a soldier faces and about nail-biting, edge of your nerves missions. You learn what elite soldiers are up against in terms of the odds and dangers of their missions.

    The book provides much food for thought and plenty to talk about, especially given the situation in the Middle East today.

    It's not a Daniel Silva novel; it's a autobiography. As such one is tempted to say it isn't as polished as Silva's works, but it comes close~! :-) It flows and I read through it in about three days. It's an absorbing book and keeps you interested. One thing the author does very well is to bring his fellow soldiers and the other people in the book to life. You end up really relating and seeing clearly how everybody relates to each other. It is in a sense a book about a family of people, some dysfunctional, and conquering that situation as much as enemy targets.

    This is a good gift for people who are interested in fighting, army life, NRA members, martial artists, i.e., interested in combat/combat life/the art of war.

    It might also be a good read for a troubled teen, to demonstrate how to rise above and/or to meet life's challenges.

    The same goes for anyone who has lost their job or is going through a career crisis or a hard time in some way. Reading the end of the book and the author's successful re-discovery of the applicability of his skills in other venues and the new life he achieved as a result is inspirational.

    Altogether an enriching read.
