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.
