Surprisingly good. Don't let the first chapter put you off. It started out like a standard war experience book, and I almost gave up on it. But then the author went back in time to his Oxford days, his experiences volunteering in poor and /or war-torn countries, his reasons to join the Seals, and it became the book I was hoping for. He strikes me as fair and reasoned when he talks about the US in Afghanistan and Iraq (though very patriotic). And I really like his latest venture. I recommend it; it's well written and interesting.
