Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Sea Stories, a well-written book that reads like a thriller, covers some of the most important historical actions taken by Navy SEALs and other special operators.” Washington Times
“McRaven not only allows readers the opportunity to vicariously experience daring adventures and the command of elite warriors heading into harm’s way, he also shares practical everyday wisdom.” Booklist (starred review)
“A retired four-star admiral serves up a readable memoir…[and] his account of finding and killing bin Laden is one of the best in the literature, told from the eagle’s-eye viewpoint of one who oversaw the entire operation. There his story shines, full of twists and turns…Readers interested in the essential work of military special forces will be inspired by McRaven’s adventures.” Kirkus Reviews
