Publisher's Summary

The second book by former Navy SEAL Mark Owen, following his multimillion-copy classic about the bin Laden mission No Easy Day, in which he tells the stories from his career that were most personal to him and that made him the operator and the person he is today.
While Mark Owen's instant New York Times best seller No Easy Day focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author's career, No Hero will be an account of the most personally meaningful missions from Owen's thirteen years as a SEAL, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates, in both success and failure.
Mark Owen describes his intentions for his second book best: "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. The stories in No Hero will be 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 to the guys coming up after them. This is what I plan to do for the reader 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 an unparalleled close-up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the men he served with capable of executing the missions we read about in the headlines.

Same old, same old..

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was not well-spent, but had to be done. No Easy Day was a good book, this was not. In fact, it tells the same stuff, but from a slightly different angle, which is odd since is the same guy telling the story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Owen and Kevin Maurer again?

Don't know. Maybe they'll try to cash in with the same story 3rd time?

Would you be willing to try another one of Paul Michael’s performances?

No no and hell no. Narrator was the old professor who bored people to death.. and the voice acting of women.. Horrible. Absolutely horrible. These types of "performances" make you regret you opted for the audiobook instead of reading the book by yourself.

Was No Hero worth the listening time?

Yes and no. Leaning towards the no.
