Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

No Easy Day by Mark Owen

This is a Seal's story of how he became a Seal and his participation in the raid that led to the death of Osma Bin Laden. 

The author's name is a pseudonym due the continuing threat of terrorism.  The names of his fellow Seals and details of the raid have been scrubbed to protect operational procedures and the safety of the participants.   The human interest factor of what motivates a young man to dedicate his life to the hazardous one of a Navy Seal, let alone providing him with the stamina and strength to become a Seal, was extremely interesting. 

A drive to succeed and a level of stubbornness that must be phenomenal has to be part of the basic character of the Seals.   The training process is either just shy of brutal or perhaps more realistically, calculated to be brutal.  

There does seem to be an addiction to thrills and or adventure.   The author shows a decided preference for field work over any time off.   The mission details were purposely vague to maintain the safety of the participants while still being detailed enough to answer a lot of questions.

This was a thought provoking look into the mind of one of the United States most elite warriors.

To the books author, thank you for your service and your courage. 


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
