9780099190417: Rogue Warrior

Brilliant, tough and totally lethal, Richard Marcinko often frightened his own commanders as much as the enemy. But in a blistering military career more harrowing than any Hollywood adventure, this maverick leader of the elite, ultra-secret SEAL TEAM SIX always fought on the side of freedom.

Now you'll join him... Trapped with 40 pounds of high explosives in a cross-fire of Khmer Rouge gunners... Storming a frozen oil rig on the North Sea... Hurtling through the night sky to a suspected den of terrorists and a stolen nuclear weapon-- with a parachute that won't open. You'll also hear the stories behind the tragic Delta Force rescue of American hostages in Iran.

Loaded with real action and rough humor told in the author's own words, "Rogue Warrior" will hold you prisoner in a war of shadows and secret missions only the bravest of heroes ever survive.

About the Author:

Richard Marcinko retired from the Navy as a full commander after more than thirty years of service. He currently lives in the Alexandria, Virginia, area, where he is CEO of SOS Temps Inc., his private security firm -- whose clients are governments and corporations; Richard Marcinko Inc., a motivational training and team-building company; and Red Cell International, Inc., which conducts vulnerability assessments of high-value properties and high-risk targets. He is the author of The Real Team; The Rogue Warrior's Strategy for Success: A Commando's Principles of Winning; and the four-month New York Times business bestseller Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior: A Commando's Guide to Success. Rogue Warrior, his #1 New York Times bestselling autobiography, set the stage for his bestselling Rogue Warrior novels, eight of which were coauthored with John Weisman.

From AudioFile:

Richard Marcinko describes his life as a combat soldier with the fearless tone of a commanding officer. His boldness helps reveal that he will stop at nothing to achieve his objectives. However, much of the excitement of his daring operations in the Navy's first anti-terrorist unit is lost since there's no emotion in his voice when recounting the stories. There's a noticeable starched quality to the narration as if Marcinko were standing at attention while delivering the text. His failure to step out of his role as military commander and take on the role of storyteller contributes to the lack of firepower in this program. M.P.T. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
