Product description

About the Author

MARK OWEN is a former member of the US Naval Special Warfare Development Group, commonly known as SEAL Team Six. In his many years as a Navy SEAL, he has participated in hundreds of missions around the globe, including the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean in 2009. Owen was a team leader on Operation Neptune Spear in Abbottabad, Pakistan, on May 1, 2011, which resulted in the death of Osama bin Laden. Owen was one of the first men through the door on the third floor of the terrorist mastermind's hideout, where he witnessed Bin Laden's death. Mark Owen's account of the raid, in No Easy Day, remains the only accurate eyewitness account on record. KEVIN MAURER has covered special operations forces for nine years. He has been embedded with the Special Forces in Afghanistan six times, spent a month in 2006 with special operations units in East Africa, and has embedded with US forces in Iraq and Haiti. He is the author of four books, including several about special operations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind the Shoes
Reviewed in the United States on 9 December 2015
"No Hero" goes into Mark Owen's account of the main lessons he learned by being a Navy SEAL. Recommended by a book club I follow, I started reading it on a whim and got distracted by Thanksgiving, but could not wait to continue. Finished it the next week.

The lessons he learns throughout his training are transferrable to the civilian world: focusing on what you can control, attention to detail during stress, and compartmentalization. In this day and age, too many people are concerned with what they can't control (celebrity marriages) instead of what they can control (health) and/or have a say in (politics). Reading this book reinforces what I read from 7 Habits, but by living through his assignments vicariously, it spurs me to actually ACT on the knowledge. Acquisition of knowledge is not as important as the application of knowledge.

You can't be an effective SEAL for a decade without applying what you learn. What makes being an effective civilian any different?
