MUST READ, RUN TO THE BOOKSTORE AS FAST AS YOU CAN

I read this book so fast I was finished before I new I was near the end. It made me hungry for more! Mr. Mann details his troubled childhood and his early Navy days before he was a SEAL in order to tell a story about a young man who, by sheer force of will power, overcame not only his troubled childhood but also everything the Navy could throw at him in SEAL training. His insane athleticism inspires and and wears the reader out. It seems he always had a new goal, a new challenge in his drive to excel. He gives some details of actual missions, which were then redacted by govenment censors (he leaves the lines, blacked out, in place, which I thought was a clever touch), but in the interest of protecting our existing Special Forces Operators, of course he left a lot to the imagination. Still, the book provides insight into what kind of training our elite forces are undergoing, and how special they really are. Reading this book made me laugh, cry, cheer and hoot. Mr. Mann's infectious personality is in this book. He curses like a sailor, tends to the wounded like Mother Teresa, and uplifts the reader with his story of his life. He is a true hero and you will feel the same after reading this book.

Don't Buy!

The book has a lot of blacked out pages for some reason! It is very irritating to read and skip whole paragraphs.

    Interesting insider description.

    You can really appreciate what it take to become a SEAL and what they do. It is impossibly hard and not normal. It definitely takes a special person. There was a lot that was blanked out, probably appropriately, but a good book to read and one of several now available by and about SEALs. I recommend it.

    Although the content of the book is outstanding, I would not recommend
    the audio version. The individual that was selected to read does not
    present a real good tone representing of what should be a profound
    telling of CWO3 Mann's story. The 'beeps' that are heard to eliminate
    bits of 'classified' history are rather annoying and detract from the
    listening pleasure. Anyone who has read other Navy SEALs accounts can
    fill in the blanks. Overall I rate this book a solid FOUR stars!!!
    Audio version, well, not so much.
