Navy SEAL book on killing of bin Laden gets good review from New York Times http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/03/books/no-easy-day-by-mark-owen-with-kevin-maurer.html?_r=2&hp A SEALâs Own Story, Bin Laden and All âNo Easy Dayâ by Mark Owen Tells of SEAL Raid on Bin Laden NYT: September 2, 2012 âNo Easy Dayâ gets off to a worrisomely formulaic start: A pumped-up prologue on the flight to the bin Laden compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, then a potentially dull flashback to the authorâs early SEAL training. (âIf I failed the situps, I was done.â). But it quickly becomes an exciting, suspenseful account of how his fighting skills were honed... âWe rarely saw the same layout more than once,â he says. Meanwhile instructors overhead on catwalks watched the trainees perform, eliminating the groupâs weaker members as if they were failed contestants on a reality show. Mr. Owen made one false move that might have gotten him booted out during such exercises. He learned never to make it again... The emphasis of his âNo Easy Day,â written with Kevin Maurer, is not on spilling secrets. It is on explaining a SEALâs rigorous mind-set and showing how that toughness is created.
