THE REAL THING!! Feb 24, 2003
Steve Watkins' book is fascinating. I couldn't put it down! Ninety percent of the book goes into great detail regarding the training he received (endured?)to become a certified U.S. Navy SEAL, including "Hell Week," as well as various SEALs missions and the part he and his team played in the Gulf War. Steve is the "real thing" folks! He is very up-front and honest about his salvation experience; however, this book is more about SEALs than Christianity. Actually, I was hoping for more of a balance between the two in the book. Hopefully, he will write another book bringing his readers up-to-date as regards his life after military service. For devotees of Suzanne Brockmann and Dee Henderson U.S. Navy SEALs books, Steve's book is a must-read. Any person who desires to enter the U.S. Navy SEALs program should first read Steve's book to get a complete understanding of the training involved to become a SEAL. I recommend this book highly if you are looking for a "good read."
A Captivating Read!! Sep 27, 2000
Written in an easy to read style, this book will be difficult to put down once you pick it up. Watkins' story begins with his desire to enter the armed services' special forces as a child and continues through the unbelievable challenges and struggles it took to get to the top. The descriptions of the torturous journey through the long period of training and especially of the grueling "hell week" are vivid and thrilling. It is very rare to get a good glimpse into the world of the Navy SEALS and this book offers many insights that are accurate and truthful from an insider's perspective. Watkins was also privileged to have a leading and pivotal role in the start of the Gulf War and offers insights into the difficult and important mission that began the war. The book ends with a compelling, compassionate and truthful presentation of the saving message of the Bible, the truth of Jesus Christ which turned Watkins' life around and gave him meaning and purpose and especially the forgiveness of his sin. Though this book will be enjoyed by everyone who picks it up, it would really be a perfect gift for a young person interested in the military's special forces.
