Críticas:

Praise for "No Hero"
"Simple, well-told stories that will interest general readers and certainly anyone contemplating a career in special operations." - "Kirkus Reviews"

Praise for "No Easy Day"
"This harrowing, minute-by-minute account by one of the highly trained members of Navy SEAL Team Six is narrative nonfiction at its most gripping, taking the reader through the mountains of Afghanistan and inside the slightly dilapidated-looking family compound in Pakistan."
- "Entertainment Weekly"
"The Bin Laden story is the marquee event in "No Easy Day," of course. But the formative steps in the author's own story are just as gripping."
-Janet Maslin, "New York Times"
"The book is a stomach-twisting close-up look at that historic mission in Abbottabad, told from the point of view of a super-elite member of SEAL Team Six who fired a bullet into bin Laden and helped carry away the corpse. Written in clean, polished prose... "No Easy Day "often reads like a gripping novel as the author recounts remarkably vivid details... "No Easy Day" puts you right there for every tense moment."
-"Entertainment Weekly"
" ...A cast of characters, including Owen himself, artfully drawn, yet painfully human, passionate descriptions of a lifestyle that few are privy to, as well as its breathlessly paced, inexorable march toward an inevitable ending...it's a remarkably intimate glimpse into what motivates men striving to join an elite fighting force like the SEALS -- and what keeps them there."
-Associated Press
"Make no mistake: "No Easy Day" is an important historic document. Think if we had a first-person account of the last minutes of Hitler in his bunker. "No Easy Day" is brisk and compelling in its telling of the training, execution and immediate aftermath of the Bin Laden mission by the elite Seal Team Six."
-"Los Angeles Times"
"[Mark Owen] has given us a brave retelling of one of the most important events in U.S. military history."
-"People Magazine"
"The writing is fast-paced, and Owen and Maurer tell some good yarns in a conversational style. They also neatly capture the camaraderie, the pranks, the constant training and the evident love that the men of SEAL Team 6 have for their jobs."
-"Washington Post"

Praise for "No Hero"
"Simple, well-told stories that will interest general readers and certainly anyone contemplating a career in special operations." --"Kirkus Reviews
" "Owen's writing is genuine and insightful...."No Hero" may have been intended for the next generation of SEALs, but the book's lessons can also be useful to civilians." --Associated Press

Reseña del editor:

The companion volume to the multimillion-copy classic No Easy Day by former Navy SEAL Mark Owen reveals the evolution of a SEAL Team Six operator
Mark Owen s instant #1 New York Times bestseller, No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama bin Laden, focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author s thirteen years as a Navy SEAL. His follow-up, No Hero, offers a rare counterpoint: an account of Owen s most personally meaningful missions, missions that never made headlines, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates in both success and failure.
I want No Hero to offer something most books on war don t: the intimate side of it, the personal struggles and hardships and what I learned from them, says Owen. The stories in No Hero are a testament to my teammates and to all the other active and former SEALs who have dedicated their lives to freedom. In our community, we are constantly taught to mentor the younger generation and to pass the lessons and values we ve learned on to others so that they can do the same for the guys coming up after them. This is what I hope I have done for readers of No Hero.
Every bit as action-packed as No Easy Day, and featuring stories from the training ground to the battlefield, No Hero offers readers a never-before-seen close-up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the SEALs he served with capable of executing the missions we read about in the headlines."
