5.0 von 5 Sternen Not just a book of combat stories! 4. Mai 2014
Von Lloyd R. Kreiser Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Most people, these days, live their entire lives without ever pushing themselves to their limits and then beyond. What most people consider “beyond the limits” is Thom Shea’s comfort zone. You wouldn’t need many fingers to count the number of people who’ve completed BUD/S, competed in 750-mile races, and at one point, prepared a platoon to inflict as much damage as possible to Taliban bad guys, in anticipation of being overrun. Unbreakable: A Navy SEAL’s Way of Life, was written as a memoir for Shea’s family in case he didn’t survive his combat tours. Written as a request (order) from his “Spartan wife”, Stacy, he weaved together several themes that bring more than the average combat documentary or biography.

The combat action, which would be expected in a SEAL’s book, won’t disappoint. He details his missions with SEAL Team 7’s Bravo Platoon during their tour of Afghanistan in 2009. They are all gripping action stories which make the book a must-read if you love those types of books. I don’t want to give spoilers of the good parts, but several times, the book almost met the intent of becoming the memoirs of a veteran who didn’t make it back.

The book is not all combat action though. He does pass on life coaching to his children and readers. Central to this coaching is the concept of one’s “internal dialogue”, which is your inner voice which guides you through your day. It’s the voice you hear that decides what to have for lunch, or what to do today. Unlike the newspaper which lands on your porch in print and is final, Shea sort of puts thoughts into a word processor and edits them, removing any references to quitting, or any negative language that leads to failure. Ultimately, those words no longer enter your thoughts. If it gets him through BUD/S and 750-mile races, it certainly couldn’t hurt to try it at home!

Finally, maybe unexpected in a SEAL book, is the story of Stacy and the family. The book has a bit of Braveheart in it. The movie was great for men and women as it combined warring with axes and a love story. During his career, Thom’s marriage was as extreme as the rest of his life. Being gone for over 200 days a year, makes for a tough family life. Somehow, he found a “Spartan wife”, ready to marry a SEAL who is rarely home and who has 2 children. Stacy actually loves it. She is as mentally tough as he is physically. While Thom is out on missions and seconds tick off the clock, she never knows if any tick may be his last. She does not accept fear and encourages Thom to fearlessly do what he is there to do and let her worry about things back home. The book will give you a real sense of the stress military families are under during deployments.

Lastly, an unspoken theme in the book is fate. Shea never mentioned it, but I couldn’t help notice the miraculous aspects of his journey. In addition to the enemy trying to kill him on every mission, he faced dehydration, a helicopter near-mishap, IEDs, and a close encounter with a cliff, to name a few. But with all that, Bravo Platoon all survived the deployment. Then there’s Stacy .. Before meeting Thom, Stacy was living on the east coast, while Thom lived on the west. She took a business trip to San Diego. Fate took over and somehow Thom, in a chance encounter, meets the perfect SEAL (future) wife. Maybe it’s all random, in my opinion, after reading the book, I wonder if the Gods are watching over him and protecting him, just to see what the hell he does next?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not just a collection of war stories.... 26. Mai 2014
Von Seth Oestreicher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I should start off by saying what this book isn't....

It's not slick. It's not like Marcus Luttrell's Lone Survivor. It's not Chris Kyle's American Sniper. And it's not definitely not Richard Marcinko's Rogue Warrior. Each of those was penned in part by others. (Patrick Robinson, Jim DeFelice and John Weisman respectively.) And yes, they are all fine books.

No, Thom Shea's Unbreakable was clearly written by the man himself.

It's a personal memoir, a "letter" to his children in case he didn't return home from battling America's enemies.

It must have been incredibly difficult to write. What does a father want to convey to his son about being a man? What does he want to tell his daughter about being a woman, wife and mother? How does he convey why his sacrificing his life with them was not just a selfish act, but one of love for his family, friends and Nation?

When reading, you can get the sense that the book was compiled from Thom's writing on bits of paper while riding in the back of a cargo plane or email's back home ,from a dusty base in some godforsaken land.

It's why I started by saying the book isn't slick. (It's also why it got four stars from me, and not five - it could have had tighter editing.)

But what it is is honest.

In an age where warriors are no longer glorified, but looked down upon by the politically correct, this book will be hard for them to read. The truth is, after all, a bitter pill to swallow. And the truth is, we need hard men - warriors - to do bad things to bad people.

To read Unbreakable is to get to know who Thom Shea is. A warrior.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Better than I expected 30. April 2014
Von Stacey Schieber - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I had read several reviews about this book and wanted to see what a Navy Seal would tell his children about life, when he was faced with the possibility of not returning home. This book has been far more than I expected. It is a motivational book, about how we can change our attitude with the words that we use to talk to ourselves. Thom Shea tells his children great pointers of how to get through different situations, and why they need to keep their physical bodies strong. He talks about what was really happening in war from his point of view, and not just the 'body count' that we were getting on our news. He explains how having a strong wife, holding together 'the fort' at home can help a soldier face the enemy with one less thing to worry about. This book should be read by every military spouse, to know how their role at home can make or break a deployment tolerable for everyone in the family. It should be read by every parent, if only to make them think of any important message they want to pass to their children. It is a great read to remind us all, that we have control, in our own minds, to motivate ourselves, whatever we may face.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I bought this book based on a very interesting NPR ... 21. Juli 2014
Von David F. Gouldthorp - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book based on a very interesting NPR interview with Shea. I appreciate Shea's service and his concern with the fact that each mission might be his last, however the book, for me, is a little too long on the melodramatic musings. I doubt that I'll finish it.

Like everyone who wears a Seal Trident Shea deserves all the respect we can give him; however, for strictly personal reasons, I truly respect learning the motivational role played by his family relationships it was more information than I really wanted to share.
