    Must Read Numerous Books for Good Overview

    Interesting book, somewhat sychophantic. No single book that I have read actually captures the essence of SF, what the people are about, and the varied assignments. Other books, two of which were written by 'outsiders' (being an outsider can lend perspective unattainable by insiders) can give the reader additional insight if he is considering joining SF. 'The Company They Keep' is a good book, as is 'In Search of The Warrior Spirit.' Each of these books has strengths and weaknesses, but in each case are balanced in thier own ways. The only excellent first person account of SF training that I have read is a book called 'Danger Close,' although the book focuses on events other than SF training. None of these books has captured the extremely varied missions of SF in detail. I nearly gave this review three stars, but have found that many reviewers tend to rate a book for what it is NOT rather than what it IS. No book -- NO book -- is wholly accurate. I doubt anyone could write an entirely accurate essay about anything, even what they ate for breakfast. I saw some inaccuracies in this book, some were merely in tone, others in factual basis, but overall the authors did a decent job of presenting the information, but it did not rate the five stars that other authors earned for books such as Danger Close and Black Hawk Down. However, I do recommend this book if you are considering joining SF.

    I must admit that Tom Clancy (and John Gresham) did a lot of research to put this amazing book together. Keep in mind that I am writing this review for military fanatics, if you have a faint or casual interest DO NOT buy this book, you will never finish it. I personally thought that it was extremely informative, well put together, and very interesting. It had several low points which kept it from getting a five in my book though. Plus the interview and mini-novel were nice additions
