- Product Review (submitted on May 22, 2012):
The book’s primary emphasis is on Adam’s life and marriage as a Navy SEAL although his entire life is covered. Adam’s death would come several months before SEAL Team 6 killed Osama bin Laden. Eric Blehm traveled from coast to coast to interview the men of SEAL Team 6 Adam trained with, deployed in combat and socialized with.
Blem’s meticulous, comprehensive research is exemplary. The information Adam’s fellow SEALs were able to provide about training exercises and SEAL deployments is remarkable and the book reflects this. The last operation leading up to and including Adam’s death is as detailed and thorough as it could have been.
Michael’s narration is clear and well-paced albeit undistinguished and the quality of the audio is professional. There is some profanity as one would expect within a group of NAVY Seals though it is on the periphery and not pervasive.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this audio book as part of christianaudio’s review program. I was not required to write a positive review and have been encouraged to give my honest review. These are my own thoughts and opinions.
