Seconds,
So far it is great though I'm only about 75 pages into it. His personality that he had shown in interviews really shines through in the way the book was written. Sort of like listening to war stories from a battle budddy. Not a sniper how to by any means and he comes across very humble, not at all like someone who wrote a book to play up his own accomplishments/ body count .We definitely lost an American legend last weekend.

Ah cool, I've read all of those. I read The Sirens of Titan as a teenager, and it really left an impression on me.

It's not just technical gun stuff -- it's his life, his experiences overseas. It's a great read.

The bottom line said so of "The Art of war" is beautiful. It says "Society needs to look back, master the art of war, in order to repair the future".
