The story: Here’s the story of Eric Greitens, a man who took a very unconventional route to becoming a Navy SEAL, and who has been doing very unconventional things ever since. Readers will find out there are a lot of reasons for wanting to fight–but the best reasons aren’t the ones about YOU. They’re the ones about helping other people.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion:  This book starts with Greitens’s back story, showing how his life, and the important characters in it, brought him to the place where he decided to become a Navy SEAL.  Their training is the most challenging of any military force on the planet, and Greitens discusses how he found the strength–not just physical, but spiritual and moral–to make it through.  If you’re wondering about the deep-down reasons why someone would take on such a difficult task, find out when you read this book–but don’t bail on it too soon!  He has to show you who he is before you’ll understand how he could do what he did.
