Admiral McRaven "Sea Stories" has many great learning points and each of his stories will teach the reader a life lesson, maybe relating to grand parents, parents, children or co workers. The lesson might be on how to be better human being in this modern era. One of the best books I have ever read.
Having seen a number of the author's U tube videos, bought the book as soon as found out about. Great insights into his career and involvement in a number of key operations including the killing of Bin Landen when he was the senior military officer in charge. His speech at the U of T convocation 6 years ago is amazing applying rules from his seal training to civilian life starting with the unexpected "Make you bed".
From a civilian perspective, stories of the valour in uniform are lionised and rightly so. This book is not so much about the heroism itself, it gives an inside peek into the mental aspect of the way of working. The story portrays a positive picture of the mechanism of operations. All the chapters are well written. The beginning is a bit slow and for a civilian it could be a drag. But the true ‘project management’, i.e. the coordination of operations is the biggest takeaway. I’d recommend this book just for chapters on rescue of Captain Phillips and capture of Bin Laden.
If I had a chance to speak with the author, I would congratulate him on his story telling abilities. There is considerable professional and military jargon that is often a road block to the lay person. But the good Admiral carefully led the reader through it without distracting from the story.
Bottom line you do not need to have a military background to appreciate this book. You will be led into history with situations that seems almost unbelievable that one person could experience in their lifetime. But he did.
PS: That mountain near Tofino, BC, I think there was a name change to protect the sacred location of the fallen.
I wanted to learn more about a book I had heard reviewed on PBS News Hour. I was saddened by McMaster's lack of empathy to his victims, even Bin Laden. McMaster claims to be a Christian, yet he seems to reject the commandant "Thou shalt not kill". To me, this is not the way we can reclaim the world from sadness and destruction.
Einmal zur Hand genommen legt man das BUch kaum noch weg. Sehr detaillierter Einblick in die Aktionen der Seals und in die Kommandostrukturen der US Streitkräfte. Nicht zu überbordend patriotisch, sehr authentisch. Danke für einige lange Lesenächte. Sehr sehr empfehlenswert.
Fantastisches spannendes Buch! Ich kenne den Autor von seiner berühmten Rede vor der University of Texas und sein Stil und sein inspirierendes Werk ist umwerfend. Ich kann es uneingeschränkt empfehlen!
