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....

    This book is a follow-on to No Easy Day. I recommend it especially for the Orion and the Action and Adventure reading groups.Mark Owen makes clear the physical and mental effort, constant practice, teamwork, and honest follow-up that go into successful SEAL missions.The difficulty of BUD/S qualification and training is legendary; Owen explains why. What I most liked--in addition to the clarity of the book--was Owen's discussion of AAR's, or After-Action Reviews, a no-holds discussion after every mission, no matter how tired a team is, of what went well, what went poorly, and how to improve.

    I think this book is different in a lot of ways- he allows us to see the human element with its failures and how he overcame each of them to press forward. I loved to see what motivated him and also changed him. It was his training that made him great. Money well spent. Stay in your "3-feet"!

    The writing is terrible, even with the ghost writer, who I presume wanted to preserve Owen's down-home style, or pretend he had one. The content is sociologically interesting. I mean if you want to know what goes on in the mind of one Navy SEAL, especially one who protesteth far too much, here you go. Definitely no hero. Some things that stood out for me: A little pocket of Americana I never personally had any experience with: "I purchased my first assault rifle at school from my [high school] history teacher. It was an AR-15, a civilian version of the military's M-4. I'd earned the money for the rifle doing odd jobs for people in the village and working construction in the summer. Between classes, I paid my teacher seven hundred dollars, then took the rifle and locked it in my locker until the end of school. When the bell rang, I put it on the back of my snowmobile and rode home." The video game nature of war to him: "The fighters tried to skid to a stop and raise their rifles in a weak-ass attempt to get some shots off. Before they even had a chance to level their AK-47s, Bert and the PJ fired multiple rounds into each fighter. They went down in a heap at the mouth of the alley... Both fighters were killed in action. I felt instant gratification. We'd gotten them. We'd missed on the first try, but didn't get discouraged." "The drone's sensor operator fired an infrared laser, like a giant laser pointer, at the fighters' location. Under our night vision, it looked like a giant finger pointing to the fighters' exact location. It was something out of a video game."But remember: "Everyone moved as quietly as we we possibly could... After all, this wasn't a video game. You can't just get shot and re-spawn in place."The way that "assaults," which the military seems to curiously use in place of "attack" (we "assaulted" the compound, we went on "assault," the "assaulters" were in position) seemed to turn him on: "As I watched the footage, I could make out the assaulters moving silently toward the target compound. I had done the same thing a million time, so I knew exactly how those guys felt. I was still getting excited just watching them. I knew their senses were on fire..."As often happens in war, the enemy is dehumanized. In this case, just completely disregarded as human beings. In one chapter, the After Action Review, an interesting process in which every mission is completely dissected with the aim of improving the next one, is discussed. Mistakes were made. As a result of such a review, two escaped Taliban commanders are caught and killed and will "never be a threat again." However, he says, "many AARs and the lessons learned in them aren't so simple. Sometimes people die because we haven't clearly communicated and learned from our mistakes." Semantics: who are people, and who are not-people? Man, there are a lot of drones flying around out there. In any movie, we would kind of be the bad guys, right? The evil empire with all the technology hunting down the ragtag rebels hiding in the hills and caves? Just saying. Strangely inverted iconography. Anyhow, it just goes to show that despite huge technological advantages, you can't "win" a war/struggle if you don't put the right political strategies in place--eg, if you are going to kiss Pakistan's ass (Owen doesn't speak to this, so you have to go read other books to get this, such as The Wrong Enemy by Carlotta Gall) and let the Taliban take refuge there. I disagree with Owen's discussion about how the enemy manipulates the rules of engagement--or rather, I don't disagree that they do, but I think the cost of us ignoring them is too high. Still, clearly these rules put sometimes unreasonable constraints on getting the job done and I wonder if a more workable balance can't be found.There was a curious disrespect for the abilities of the Afghan fighters the SEALs were supposed to be training. The SEALs did not seem to want to be doing this--the Afghans were thought to be slowing the SEALs down. Shouldn't there be more enthusiasm for teaching these guys and helping them become better fighters so the Americans can leave? There was almost a scorn that they didn't speak English, too, as if they should, rather than any consideration that the SEALs should be speaking Afghan. Kind of funny. Plus, I wondered why the Afghans would be such terrible fighters when many Afghans on our side had fought alongside the Taliban against the Soviets back in the day and were pretty tough fighters... why weren't the Afghan commandos recruited from those ranks? Basically, this book went some distance to confirm my suspicion that despite his talk of sacrifice, these guys aren't especially patriotic. They may think they are, but if they'd been born in Russia or China or Saudi Arabia, they'd be loyal THERE, and probably members of THEIR elite forces. They're the same guys all over the world. They're in these roles because of the challenge, because of the nature of the work, because they see being a SEAL, or whatever branch of special forces they've chosen, as being the best of the best, kind of like how people who go to Harvard Law think THEY are the best of the best. ("I never wanted to be normal. I can't be average." Me either.) It's not that I don't believe that they feel some connection to American ideology, but I'd bet if they were born in another country they'd connect to that ideology, because they're just that kind of person--a person who is born loyal. Born to excel but also born to serve. As for sacrifice, yes, there's a lot of it, but Olympic athletes also sacrifice, as do Himalayan climbers, and even elite scientists, doctors, and lawyers make sacrifices in favor of their careers at the expense of families and social lives. Not everyone lays their life on the line (climbers do). I suspect that for these SEAL guys that's a lot of the rush, and therefore not as much of a sacrifice as it might seem. I actually don't get the sense that these guys mind risking their lives so much. You can't simultaneously say you're no hero and be miffed when you're not getting a medal. I do think the families make sacrifices, but maybe that's the issue--is it irresponsible for a commando to have a family? I think that about elite climbers, sometimes. Owen argues that SEAL training insulates them from PTSD. Some might beg to differ, but perhaps there are re-entry difficulties all the same, and perhaps some of this is due to the intense experience of team identity he describes. I wonder if it would be easier for a fighter from an elite unit to re-enter a more collectivist society? Anyhow, I agree. These guys aren't heros. They're job-doers. They do jobs that are difficult, dangerous, and apparently, very rewarding and exciting for them. They sacrifice, but I wondered how much of the sacrifice was for *us* and how much of it was so that they could be better, faster, stronger, etc.

    You can't possibly not like this guy after reading this book. And even though he comes from a completely different world than me, I could relate to him. He's an Alaska boy who knows how to live off the land. He learned survival skills in grade school and sometimes rode a snowmobile to school. He always wanted to be a SEAL. I admire anyone who goes after their dream. I did the same (although my dream was not as hazardous). And although he is disciplined, he can be defiant. He's in hot water for not running his first book, No Easy Day, through the proper channels. This time for No Hero, he did. Some parts of the book are redacted. It's only a couple paragraphs and words here and there. But instead of excluding those parts from the book, he left them in. In his first book, he was very critical of the current administration. Some would say he's ballsy, while others would say he's a glutton for punishment. I only gave it three stars because he left out a lot of things. He talked in great detail about his missions and the lessons he learned from them. But he's been out of the military for years and I want to know about his transition to civilian life. So many veterans suffer from PTSD. He could have helped many with his story. He also made it seem like the only valuable lessons he learned was in the military. I come from a large Irish-American family and I learned something from all of my elders. I'm sure his missionary mom and dad taught him a few things as well. Bottom line, he revealed so much and yet so little. Not sure how much of the book was Mark and how much was Kevin, his co-writer. What I loved about the book? He was honest about his faults, he made me laugh and most importantly, he made me understand what it was like in Iraq and Afghanistan. I do not know anyone in the military (my uncle was in Vietnam but I was told never to ask him about it). All I know about war is what I've seen in documentaries. Mark Owen's books helped educate me. Thank you Mark and if there's a third book planned, please make it a solo mission this time.

    Interesting but slightly unfocused and probably unnecessary. The author says he wanted to go into more of the day-to-day life and lessons of a SEAL than he did in his first book No Easy Day, but I just couldn’t shake the feeling he was trying to squeeze just a little more juice out of the lemon... for profit.

    I received this book through the Goodreads First Reads program. I have read Mr. Owen's previous book "No Easy Day" about the Osama bin Laden killing which I had some security and accuracy issues with at the time. This story written by the former Seal is a must read for anyone interested in the military and Seal Teams in particular. Mr. Owen (a pseudonym) shows us what it takes to be a Seal and what kind of missions they might be used for. This time around some of the censorship seems arbitrary as you can easily look up the book, "Rogue Warrior" by Richard Marcinko to see which Seal Team he was on, but it is blanked out in this book.I liked the way Mr. Owen showed that even when a mission failed or they made mistakes that there was always something they learned from that and it helped them to grow. We all need to take this lesson to heart and not be afraid to step out of our comfort zones sometimes in order to make progress in our lives. The Navy Seals may not think they are heroes, but we certainly owe a huge debt of gratitude to all that they have done over the years to make this country free and safe.

    I completely enjoy and love books by heroes who are merely speaking of doing their job. In today's world a lot of people speak of little things like they are something to brag about. Mark Owen on the other hand is a hero who speaks of his heroic things merely as part of doing his job. As Mark states in the book, the people perceive SEALs as people who do extraordinary things, but Mark points out that they are people who do basic things extraordinarily. I think that they are amazing and born to lead people. I doubt that someone can be merely trained to do basic things extraordinary way. I think someone has to be born to be able to hand physical and mental task as those people do in the extraordinary way.I enjoyed this book a lot. I haven't read "No Easy Day" by the same SEAL author, but I look forward to it. Can't compare the two yet, but curious to see what the other book, that put Mark on the map as the author, entails.

    Segundo libro de Mark Owen tras su crónica de cómo mató a Bin Laden. El libro consta de ocho fogonazos, ocho recuerdos aislados desde que salió de la escuela de los SEAL hasta que se retiró, catorce años después. Son ocho misiones, las primeras de entrenamiento y las últimas en Afganistán, habiendo pasado por Irak. En cada una cuenta cómo fue todo y qué aprendió de ellas. El libro es interesante, al igual que su predecesor, a pesar de que el estilo del autor es tirando a aséptico, incluso cuando cuenta cómo eliminaban a los Talibanes casa por casa en remotas aldeas cerca de la frontera de Pakistán. Lectura interesante para el aficionado a estos temas.

    I thought this was an amazing book! I really liked how he explained each thing that he and is team would prep for the mission and all the little things that they did before entering the compound or other mission areas. He talks about his experience throughout the book and how he failed multiple times but that did not stop him from trying to be the best seal he could. You learn about leadership and brotherhood in this book. So if you are interested in learning about seal operations or think about being a seal then this is a book I recommend for you.

    I had loved No Easy Day and I love No Hero as well. I hope the author keeps on writing more and more books and readers like me always get transported to the War Zones and the high-intensity, kill-or-be-killed missions where we feel alive and full of adrenaline! I loved every chapter of this book and I recommend this book to all those who want to feel how it feels like to be a real hero. "The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday."

    I haven't read his other book yet. I grabbed this one on audio for a 2 day road trip. Finished it in one day though.My main take away from all the great advice he gave was "stay in your 3 foot world". Something we can remind ourselves in all aspects of our life - not just rock climbing or in combat. I thought it was humbly written and honest. I look forward to reading his other book that much more.

    No HeroToby Inman12/01/17English 12-51- The author of this book, who is a former member of SEAL Team 6, wanted to tell the world the intimate side of war or the everyday life of it and to share some of his stories about the operations that didn’t make headlines.2- This book was written this year when just about every week there's something in the headlines about the war in Afghanistan and its about the stuff that doesn’t make the news.3- This book is made up of accounts that take place all over the world, but mostly in Afghanistan and Iraq.4- The main character was Mark Owen who is a Navy SEAL with a no-quit attitude. Another character is Walt who is also a Navy SEAL and is short with a big mouth. Walt is also Mark’s swim buddy, a SEAL’s partner, throughout most of the book. Phil is also an important character in this book. He is Mark’s mentor and commanding officer some of Mark’s time as a SEAL. 5- Each chapter has its own theme which are purpose, confidence, fear, stress, mindset, trust, communication, relationships, accountability, discomfort, evolution, and compartmentalization.6- This book starts of by him talking about a helicopter crash that he knew about from text messages and his friends that died in it. Then he tells about how he had always wanted to be a SEAL and the start of BUD/s. After that Mark shares some of his experiences in Afghanistan. He goes on to talk about lots of raids he did and some of the places where he was posted. He then ends the book by talking about making the decision to get out of the Navy and the hard transition to civilian life. 7- One literary device used in this book was imagery. One example of imagery is this “I stifled a long yawn as I walked back to our ready room and took off my kit, which was soaked with dust and sweat.” another device used was conflict. One example of conflict in this book could be any one of the many times that Mark said that he got in a gunfight during a mission.8- One memorable quote was “People think SEALs are fearless. Think again. No one lives without fear; heights is my Achilles’ heel.” This quote stuck in my mind because to think that I share the same fear as someone who had been through BUD/s and 14 deployments around the world was astonishing. A second quote is “Beckwith fired most of the soldiers in the unit when he took command and started to recruit replacement using a flyer.” This was memorable because I thought it was funny that the leader of a project during the Vietnam war recruited soldiers using a flyer.

    No Hero is a book that stays true to its title. This is a book that isn’t about the heroism of a Navy Seal, but about the teamwork of his unit, and what he learned through that teamwork. As well as what he learned training to become a Seal. Overall, I would say that this was a good read, but it reads more like a short story collection rather than a novel. Although because of that the book was never boring to me, but the stories were formulaic. The Majority of the stories would start with some type of mission or training the author Mark Owen went through, then it would be him reflecting on the meaning of that mission or training. But the stories were good and the lessons drawn out of them were nice as well, so it being formulaic didn’t bother me a lot. When I was reading this book, there were some passages that surprised me, there was one where the author sneaks up on sleeping terrorists and kills them all without hesitating. After this happens, the author does reflect on it, writing about stress caused by the war. But reading that passage especially showed a lot about the nature of war, which this book does a good job of explaining through the stories found later in it. Which definitely gave me a new perspective on at least how Navy Seals operate in a war. I found the writing style of this book to be pretty simple, no huge words I didn’t understand, but that didn’t take away from the book at all. One thing about the writing though that bothered me was that there were some points in the book where sentences were worded oddly or words seemingly out-of-place. Which I put down to typos, something that ruined the reading experience for me once I was immersed into the book. Now that you’ve read this review, I recommend this book to anyone that isn’t sensitive to death, and those who are looking for a read with some action. As well as to anybody who might be curious as to what a Navy Seal does, and how people train to become one.

    I have enjoyed every chapter of this book, as it showed a clear evolution of a navy SEAL from a tactical and personal aspect (which sometimes reflected an emotional aspect of it), which has been portrayed in an excellent balance. I have learned so many new personal tactics on how to deal with stress, focusing on what you can affect (3-foot world), compartmentalization, and others. The writer sincerely showed us how dedication and hardworking, with willpower and talent can develop a powerful and leading person in one of the best special forces in the world. This alone brings a rush of motivation and drive for a seeking individual...What I have realized missing is input from other individuals. There have been some criticism on the forces leadership, and the rules of engagement, but it was almost all from his aspect. I would have been interested by the leadership's perspective on such topics/issues.I have found this book more appealing than Mark's first book (No Easy Day). If you want to read both books, start with No Easy Day followed by No Hero. But if you want to read only one, then I suggest No Hero.

    I have recently read No Hero: The Evolution of a Navy Seal by Mark Owen. This book details the life and adventures of a member of the world renowned SEAL Team Six. Major characters in this book are Mark Owen, Walt, and other members of SEAL Team Six. Major plot events include boot camp, miscellaneous missions, operation desert storm, and the assassination of Osama Bin Laden. This book also contains previously confidential information about the world's most elite and secretive special operations force.I loved this book for many reasons. One being the patriotism Mark Owen and his teammates showed to a country we are lucky to live in. It also recounts real life special operations missions in which the operators put their lives in risk to save democracy and freedom from evil. If I could change anything in this book it would be the amount that had to be censored due to either confidential or controversial information.I think any one interested in special operations would love this book. Not only will military and history buffs love this book, but any action/thriller fan.

    No Hero is a fast-moving, episodic account of "Mark Owen's" 13 year career as a U.S. Navy SEAL. I really enjoyed this book, although I wish it would have been a bit longer (in addition to being fast-moving, it was also a quick read). This review is intended to give you a detailed overview of the book's organization and content in hopes that you will join me in supporting the author by buying and reading it!No Hero is an admirable follow up to Owen's controversial No Easy Day. Overall I think No Hero is the better of the two books. That being said, I wholeheartedly agree with reviewers who have suggested that you read No Easy Day first. However, readers well-versed with the Navy SEALs, or other special operations units, will be able to jump right into No Hero.Rather than simply presenting a chronological overview of his time with the SEAL Teams, Owen's narrative jumps around in time and place to give us snapshots from his selection, training and operations. Each chapter is centered around a significant incident or event. In turn, each chapter is also intended to illustrate a key principle or lesson learned, as reflected by the chapter subtitles:Purpose, Confidence, Fear, Stress, Mind-set, Trust, Communication, Relationships, Accountability, Discomfort, Evolution and Compartmentalization. This structure makes No Hero somewhat reminiscent of books like Pete Blaber's exceptional The Men, The Mission and Me (concerning Delta Force) and Richard Marcinko's The Real Team (concerning the SEALs).No Hero begins with a moving prologue describing the author's personal response to news of the downing of a CH-47 helicopter in Wardak province, Afghanistan. This was a notably tragic event for the SEAL Teams (and U.S. special operations community at large) and it serves to set a suitably serious tone for the book. The next chapter (subtitled Purpose) charts Owen's deliberate path which led him to become a SEAL.These are followed by chapters focusing on events such as:* An exercise in Alaskan waters where he was part of an OPFOR (opposing force) dive team tasked with planting explosives on a U.S. Navy warship guarded by trained dolphins. (Chapter title: Confidence)* Climbing training in Red Rock Canyon outside of Las Vegas, an incident which serves to illustrate the principle of "living in your three-foot world." (Fear)* A simunitions scenario used as part of the Selection & Training (S&T) for SEAL Team Six. (Stress)* A 2006 assault on an insurgent safe house in Iraq. (Mind-set)* Being ordered to raid a compound in Afghanistan based on a dubious report that a high-level al Qaeda commander was hiding out there. (Trust)* How the AAR (After Action Review) process benefitted attempts to catch a Taliban commander in 2010. (Communication)* Serving as team leader for a mission targeting a high-level Taliban commander in Kunduz province, Afghanistan. (Relationships)* On the benefits of the "swim buddy" system, as contrasted with an unsatisfactory teaming with a CIA officer at a Pakistani border outpost in 2007. (Accountability)* Patrolling into an enemy controlled valley in Afghanistan during the winter of 2009. (Discomfort)* Working from FOB Shank in Logar province, Afghanistan, the SEALs are partnered with Army Rangers and Afghan forces to go after fighters being tracked by drones. (Evolution)* On dealing with disturbing memories and experiences, including a 2006 assault on a village in Iraq. (Compartmentalization)In addition to its core episode, each chapter also touches on other incidents from Owen's training and operations which relate to the chapter's central theme. The book concludes with an Epilogue relating how its predecessor volume, No Easy Day, came into being and why the author chose to write this follow-up.While I am no fan of the typical "special-ops lessons for business world" book, No Hero does not go overboard in this regard. Clearly the emphasis is on recounting significant or memorable events from the author's career, with the chapter themes serving primarily as an organizational device.While some reviewers are critical of how the narrative jumps around, I think the nonlinear structure of No Hero makes for a better book. Repeated deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan brought about improved tactics and increased situational awareness which resulted in many missions becoming somewhat "routine" (hard as that might seem to believe). Further, security concerns necessarily constrict the types of incidents (and the amount of detail) that can be included in a book like this (as illustrated by the two sections that were redacted after Department of Defense review). Considering these factors, it is hard to see how a chronological restructuring of No Hero would have served to improve the book.As he explains in the Epilogue, Owen had a couple of central goals for No Hero. The book is intended to honor his brothers in the SEAL community. In addition, he hopes that the book will serve as a source of inspiration -- not only for readers interested in pursuing a career in special operations, but also for anyone who wants to apply these principles honed "on the edge" in civilian life.I think No Hero succeeds in meeting these goals. It presents a compelling insider perspective on the dedication, honor, sacrifice and professionalism behind the SEAL Teams, in particular, and special operations forces in general.

    "We are pushed beyond our mental and physical limits BUD/S. I learned that I could perform well beyond what I thought were my limits."It was a good read but I loved the first book! That was faced paced and showered me with determination.An important lesson I learned from this book is to always focus on 3 foot world; not what's gonna happen hours later, or 2 weeks later.And to focus on what you can affect/control, not fear.

    Spending time to reflect on how to become more effective and adjusting a behaviour accordingly is one of the Agile Manifesto principles. It was compelling to see SEALs use an analogous technique: AAR, 'After Action Review', as a way to learn their lessons after a mission and fix mistakes.An appreciation for Polish Special Forces is another notable fact for me.

    This is the kind of book I personnaly read if I have a lapse in motivation. The book is action packed, but still filled with wisdom and life advices that will find a way in your daily routine. I'm a fan of Owen's style and this sequel to his first book is as good as expected.
