Description

The companion volume to the multimillion-copy bestseller No Easy Day by former Navy SEAL Mark Owen reveals the evolution of a SEAL Team Six operator.

Mark Owen’s instant #1 New York Times bestseller, No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama bin Laden, focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author’s thirteen years as a Navy SEAL. His follow-up, No Hero, is an account of Owen’s most personally meaningful missions, missions that never made headlines, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates in both success and failure.

Featuring stories from the training ground to the battlefield, No Hero offers readers a never-before-seen close-up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the SEALs he served with capable of executing the missions that make history.

    Excellent book that distills a selection of harrowing death defying moments/missions into life lessons however I am skeptical as to whether 98%+ could benefit from this because aside from these guys being the very Best of the Very Best, most who read these type of books are just sheep in the heard and go through life just hoping to have a job next year this time. That said, what Owens speaks of, mentally and psychologically wise, an individual either has this ingrained in them or they don't. It ain't a matter of reading a book, having an "aha" moment, and tomorrow at work your gonna put your job and career on the line to assist a co-worker in need. Also, thanks for your service Delta!!

    Excellent read. Second book I've read by Mark Owen and it's just as much a page turner as "No Easy Day". It gives you a very descriptive account of events and is written in a way that is easily understood. If you read this Mr. Owen, thank you and all the members of the Unites States military for making sacrifices for this beautiful nation. U.S.A.!!

    Having read No Easy Day which gives first hand insight to the raid that killed Bin Laden I knew as soon as I saw that Mark Owen had written another book about life in the Navy Seals that I would have to have No Hero as well. In similar fashion Mark covers as much as permitted the life he experienced in the Seal teams. However I have one major disagreement with Mark. To me, all of these men and women who serve our country are true heroes. Not the sports stars, not the musicians and certainly not the Hollywood actors. Those serving in the military and their families are the true heroes. Their sacrifice even at the cost of their lives help to protect the rest of us and by their volunteering makes it so we don't have to fight.
  • Excellent follow up to no easy day

    Very captivating read. Although not as good as No Easy Day it was still hard to put down. Similar to the American Sniper but had more of a emotional feel to it. Don't get me wrong American Sniper was excellent but I thought No Hero was a little more personal. I haven't read a book in over 30 years but mowed through all three in the last week. The subject matter is interesting and really depicts the sacrifices our servicemen and women make to ensure our freedom.
  • Pretty much the same story again and again

    If you have read "No Easy Day" you will see in this book where they have just copied and pasted some excerpts from that book. I was disappointed with the stories, it was pretty much talking about the raids he went on which are all similar in nature. Disappointed after waiting for so long.
  • Great read

    This book goes against all Tier 1 operators credo of silent professionalism and could compromise moral and opsec in the field for those still in the field. Trash book anyway...
