Lone Survivor

It’s been a long time since I have been consumed by a book. I usually have three or four going at once. Lone Survivor was a notable exception. I started on my way to LA on a Friday and was done on the following Thursday. I stayed up one night until after 11 reading which is very unlike me.

As the title indicates Lone Survivor is the story of Marcus Luttrell, the only survivor of Navy Seal team wiped out in Afghanistan. I can simply say buy the book. I have actually purchased three copies to give to friends. It is a powerful story of friendship and patriotism. If you can read it without at least one tear I will be surprised.

    My 13 year old son is working out at the North Andover gym – great experience for him! Steve is fantastic!!! Love your book recommendations – read Born To Run and Lone Survivor after hearing about them from you. I would love a “Book Recommendation” area of your blog – you pick good ones!!

    I was exactly the same. I’ve bought three copies and given them all away.

  4. Mike,

    I read it. Like you, I couldn’t put it down AND bought a few for friends. It’s unbelievable how brave and committed some people can be.

  5. Mike – glad to see you read it. Awesome book. Most people are oblivious to what Seals and Force Recon Marines (my bro was one) and other special op forces go through. If you want to read another great one, read “Biggest Brother – The Life of Major Dick Winters”. I think you will enjoy it as he was a born leader. In a way, it can be a great book for coaches to read.


  6. Outstanding book. Read it once and have referred it to many friends. True Americans. God Bless them

  7. Have read it – great book! Helps you understand the nature of the war in Afghanistan. Seal training was very interesting.
