I don't know if it was the writing style or the narrators perception of the tone of voice but this wasn't a good listen/read.
First of all, It felt abridged and I had to check, because the author left out a few deployment and other parts and went straight in to the 2nd or 3rd deployment, which was frustration. You want to know why he thinks the way he does from previous encounters.
Second was the author bringing up being a medic and a SEAL constantly. I feel like he should of known the two conflicts and dealt with it, instead everything other line ( it felt like was the self conflict of his roles) was about just this and for that reason it wasn't engaging
having said all this I'm Greatful he put it on paper.

Love it got me thinking about live after serving myself it questioned me and my actions
Any additional comments?
If you are looking for a book with a lot of detailed battle scenes and excitement, this is not the book you want. This is a story about one man and his military career. There are a few "war stories" but in general, this is a life story. It's a good book, well performed, but not action packed.

Where does Battle Ready rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Battle Ready ranks in the top 5, but as far as the author and his personal writings, it ranks #1.
What did you like best about this story?
It was a great story about the SEALs with a side that allows you to see Mark as a very personable and humble man. Mark lets you in his head so much that I started feeling the emotions he wrote of, if he was nervous, I felt nervous etc.. Well written.
Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but I thought he did an outstanding job. Never missed a beat in my opinion.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, a personal moment Mark had while sitting at his computer and he was told his team had another mission.
Any additional comments?
I'm a flight nurse and Navy Vet, so I could understand the lingo very easy, being in the field I am, Marks writings made me open up and take a look at some or my own personal issues with my job. He made me feel like I wanted to work with him ( on the medical side, I am no SEAL). To sum it up, it was a real treat to hear such personal details in the life of this man. I felt homered to be allowed to read it.
