In this instant New York Times bestseller, the celebrated author of Make Your Bed shares amazing adventure stories from his career as a Navy SEAL and commander of America's Special Operations Forces.
Admiral William H. McRaven is a part of American military history, having been involved in some of the most famous missions in recent memory, including the capture of Saddam Hussein, the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, and the raid to kill Osama bin Laden.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Navy SEAL, American hero, planner of the raid that captured Osama bin Laden. Admiral William H. McRaven is many things, but he’s also a heck of a storyteller. His charming, no-nonsense narration of Sea Stories—his gripping memoir of a life well-lived serving his country, pursuing impossible missions, and cheating death—made us wish we had a longer commute. McRaven’s military tales are told in his trademark firm-and-direct style, but they also reveal the meticulous eye for detail you’d expect from a covert-ops specialist. We bet he could write a spectacular spy thriller.
As a Canadian I’m so proud of America as allies as neighbours I can’t wait to witness her response
In his own words and voice.
I have read this book last year but recently purchased the audiobook on iTunes.
It’s written and narrated by Admiral William H. McRaven. You can hear the pain in his voice when he got injured or the calm in preparing for a dangerous mission.
It’s an rewarding and entertainment experience that will you wanting more...
