Product description

Review

Praise for "No Hero"
"Simple, well-told stories that will interest general readers and certainly anyone contemplating a career in special operations." - "Kirkus Reviews"

Praise for "No Easy Day"
"This harrowing, minute-by-minute account by one of the highly trained members of Navy SEAL Team Six is narrative nonfiction at its most gripping, taking the reader through the mountains of Afghanistan and inside the slightly dilapidated-looking family compound in Pakistan."
- "Entertainment Weekly"
"The Bin Laden story is the marquee event in "No Easy Day," of course. But the formative steps in the author's own story are just as gripping."
-Janet Maslin, "New York Times"
"The book is a stomach-twisting close-up look at that historic mission in Abbottabad, told from the point of view of a super-elite member of SEAL Team Six who fired a bullet into bin Laden and helped carry away the corpse. Written in clean, polished prose... "No Easy Day "often reads like a gripping novel as the author recounts remarkably vivid details... "No Easy Day" puts you right there for every tense moment."
-"Entertainment Weekly"
" ...A cast of characters, including Owen himself, artfully drawn, yet painfully human, passionate descriptions of a lifestyle that few are privy to, as well as its breathlessly paced, inexorable march toward an inevitable ending...it's a remarkably intimate glimpse into what motivates men striving to join an elite fighting force like the SEALS -- and what keeps them there."
-Associated Press
"Make no mistake: "No Easy Day" is an important historic document. Think if we had a first-person account of the last minutes of Hitler in his bunker. "No Easy Day" is brisk and compelling in its telling of the training, execution and immediate aftermath of the Bin Laden mission by the elite Seal Team Six."
-"Los Angeles Times"
"[Mark Owen] has given us a brave retelling of one of the most important events in U.S. military history."
-"People Magazine"
"The writing is fast-paced, and Owen and Maurer tell some good yarns in a conversational style. They also neatly capture the camaraderie, the pranks, the constant training and the evident love that the men of SEAL Team 6 have for their jobs."
-"Washington Post"

Praise for "No Hero"
"Simple, well-told stories that will interest general readers and certainly anyone contemplating a career in special operations." --"Kirkus Reviews
" "Owen's writing is genuine and insightful...."No Hero" may have been intended for the next generation of SEALs, but the book's lessons can also be useful to civilians." --Associated Press
