    This is truly my best book of 2019, and I have read some good ones this year.

    While reading this book, the quote from Edmund Burke, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing", was in my head the whole time, and luckily for the world William McRaven is one of those good men who did something, and is filled with stories of other good men and women who did something.

    This is truly my best book of 2019, and I have read some good ones this year.

    While reading this book, the quote from Edmund Burke, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing", was in my head the whole time, and luckily for the world William McRaven is one of those good men who did something, and is filled with stories of other good men and women who did something. The stories filling these pages are amazing and the man has truly lived a full life, he is a brilliant story-teller, while there are also life lessons in each of these stories. A very interesting part of this book is the behind-the-scenes look at the control of Special Operations Forces throughout the world and the sheer scale of it. I personally think that the United States is lucky to have such highly trained and motivated armed forces to safeguard it's future and seeing in the media how they are sometimes condemned by their own public is shocking to me, these brave men and women should each be heralded as a hero, because that is what they are, because believe me, it is not nice living in a country where your armed forces can barely defend themselves, let alone the people who depend on them.

    I knew I would love this book from the "Make Your Bed" author. Loved the early years stories..."Mothers!" I wish more children had early beginnings like his. Great book!!

    Thank you to Goodreds for a copy for my review.

    Wish there were more stars! And more stories from William McRaven.

    I encourage you to trudge through the first chapter which is really rather disappointing childhood escapades. But the book is an absolute compelling read. It just adds to my extreme gratitude to the professionalism and the service of our Armed Forces. It is also very well written

    Thank you Admiral William H. McRaven for your service to this country. We need to hear more stories of our brave men and women who have served and sacrificed to give us our freedom. This book is not just stories about Admiral McRaven's career, but he describes what its like for all SEAL team recruits. He writes of the heroes, the wounded and the fallen. He acknowledges the families who stand behind them and gives credit where credit is due to his team members and those who helped him throughout

It made me proud of America and helped remind me that freedom isn't free.
