A brilliant man
on 26 February 2014
A truly brilliant man with an amazing amount of selflessness and courage.
I downloaded the sample for the kindle as I was apprehensive about the high cost of the book, and within the first few pages was overwhelmed by the raw emotions experienced by Michaels parents on gradually learning of their son's fate which sounded so very much like a lot of us have experienced upon learning of a death of someone close.
Although this is an amazing story of an amazing man,
I found that after the first few chapters, the book described largely in detail the training and specifics Michael WOULD of gone through to become a Navy SEAL and nothing about Michael, as another reviewer commented that the book was very much "bulked" out.
After reading the Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell it's the obvious next choice to read, but be aware that apart from the beginning and end....the mid part of the book I feel is a process rather than a story.
All the same, I feel I know a bit more about the man Michael .P. Murphy and I am a lot better off for it.
