Stirringly evocative, thought provoking, and often jaw dropping, The Operator ranges across SEAL Team Operator Robert O'Neill's awe-inspiring 400-mission career that included his involvement in attempts to rescue "Lone Survivor" Marcus Luttrell and abducted-by-Somali-pirates Captain Richard Phillips and culminated in those famous three shots that dispatched the world's most wanted terrorist, Osama bin Laden.

The Operator is a fantastic story narrated by Robert O'Neill, whom explains his life becoming a Navy SEAL and deploying to middle eastern countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. He tells his story in a way that would engage any listener to keep hearing what he has to say, and what exciting moments will happen next. Being a part of the Canadian Armed Forces, I absolutely respected the amount of detail and enthusiasm he mentioned about the training to become part of an Army, and how difficult it was to get there. I would listen to his story while going for a run early in the morning, and put myself as if I was in a position similar to his. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anybody in the military, anyone looking for action and suspense, or anyone who enjoys a very casual read/listen. 10/10
