    1 thought on “Inside SEAL Team Six: My Life and Missions with America's Elite Warriors

    1. NOTE: If this is the first book that you are reading about the Navy SEALs or SEAL Team Six for that matter.avoid reading at all cost. This book's meant to be read only after you've read previous books on SEALs or SEAL Team Six. Reason? Heavily RedactedI mean so heavy you can't imagine. Almost 80% of the author's info regarding SEAL Team Six has been blacked out. some cases two to three consecutive pages have been blacked out REVIEW : Before I read thisI've read Rogue Warrior by Richard Marcinko, [...]

    2. Really great book, but it's less a story of Navy SEALS in combat than it is the story of one man's incredible journey from biker hood to Navy SEAL to successful athlete. The early biker chapters alone were worth the price of the whole book!

    3. Originally posted on Sarahsbookshelf:This book was the personal memoir of Don Mann, retired US Navy SEAL, written with Ralph Pezzullo. Mann was in the Navy, and specifically the SEALs, for over 20 years. His experience, stories, and underlying message were very interesting to read about.Sometimes when I read military memoirs, I wonder what it would be like to actually meet the person. In this particular instance, I think meeting Mann would be fun, but he definitely sounds like a very intense ind [...]

    4. Don Mann’s “Inside Seal Team Six” was a great book full of action, excitement, some horror, and a little romance. The things I liked most about this book was that it was a book about America’s heroes and how brave they are when it comes to risking their lives to save our freedom. These seals train hard to take out the biggest evils of our time and at the same time have to deal with the problems in their families. Navy Seals are the real heroes of our time and I am glad that Don Mann wrot [...]

    5. I'm going to come clean here and say the closest I've come to combat is beating someone down for a 75% off Derek Lam handbag (Just kidding Not really). But if you've read any of my work, you know I write a lot about Navy SEALs, Special Forces, guns, knives, and hand-to-hand combat and black ops missions. Which means I research. (God help me if the NSA ever pulls my internet history. I'll look like a potential terrorist with a shoe addiction).Inside Seal Team Six was one of the first books I read [...]

    6. I guess "The Life of CWO3 Don Mann" is a more appropriate, since ST6 or even the SEALs part was only makes up about half the book. But in all fairness, it's probably close to impossible to make a thorough ST6 book, unless the unit somehow decides to embrace the spotlight (in which case, it's not ST6 anymore).It is a great book, though, to motivate yourself to push harder. Readers can see first-hand examples of an extremely hardcore CWO3 Mann finishing triathlons, Ironmans, and adventure races, a [...]

    7. We listened to this book on CD during road trip(s). I would think of this book of more like an autobiography of Don Mann, not really an "inside Seal Team Six" summary type book. He definitely lead an interesting life. He had more insane experiences in his first 40 years in life and in his 20+ years in the Navy than most people will have in their entire lifetime. Worth a read if you like these types of adventure books, but if you're squeamish of medical scenarios, you'll be wincing a lot during m [...]

    8. I thought the book was good, only one complaint, there was parts that were blanked out because he couldn't share that information. I would recommend this to anyone who likes war stories.

    9. Inside SEAL Team Six – My Life and Missions with America’s Elite Warriors recounts the unbelievable life story of Don Mann, primarily during those years while he served with SEAL Team Six. Navy SEALs are said to be the finest military force in the world for performing the missions with which they are tasked. That being the case has been clearly demonstrated numerous times. Given that SEALs as a group are the finest military force in the world, the members of SEAL Team Six are without questio [...]

    10. Not a bad book. There were a lot of redactions due to security concerns but that is understandable since it was written after 9/11. The author seems to jump around a bit in subject matter in each chapter writing about Spec-Ops, endurance racing and family matters. An enjoyable book and a quick read.

    11. Candid, engaging and a quick read. Many pages have passages blackened out due to classified information - it would've been neat to get the details about several missions but national security is a priority.

    12. I recently finished the book Inside SEAL Team Six by Don Mann and Ralph Pezzullo. Don Mann, the main author of the book was a Chief Warrant Officer Third Class in the US Navy and was a SEAL Team Six platoon member, assault team member, boat crew leader, and advanced training officer, he was also the program director preparing civilians to go to BUDS (Basic Underwater Demolition). The first major part of the grueling selection process. Since 1998 he was on active duty with SEAL Team Six. In addit [...]

    13. Was quite surprised how much I liked listening to this book. Very insightful and a reminder how much others push despite challenges. Makes you think harder when you think you want to complain.

    14. Najzaujímavejšie miesta cenzúrované, plus "ako som sa stal seal-om" v duchu patriotických naratívov, ale inak fajn čítanie.

    15. I wonder if anybody knows how difficult it is to read a book when pages of it are blacked out.I mean he must have included marrying his first wife, Kim, in one of those blacked out paragraphs b/c, all of a sudden, he had a wife Kim that appeared out of nowhere. No introduction of her, and I'm assuming he added a blurb about it but they blacked out that information too. What the heck they NEEDED to black that out for, I'll never know.***************This is what I've been given regarding the captu [...]

    16. Inside Seal Team SixMy Life and Mission with America’s Elite Warriors It was on May 2, 2011, that President Obama announced to the world “Tonight, I can report to the American people that the United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden.” His quote was something the United States had waited to hear for almost ten years. The Navy SEAL’S are an elite group and their team six is the team that killed bin Laden. I liked the fact that Osama bin Laden, the founder of al [...]

    17. First, this is not really a book about Seal Team 6, but a memoir by a lifelong Navy Seals careerist and long distance endurance racer who also happened to be a member of Seal Team 6 during that time, but not part of the crew that got Osama Bin Laden. In that respect, I found the title a bit misleading, even a bit disappointing as more of a distracting marketing ploy by the publishers or writers to get more people to buy the book, considering the plethora of ST6 books selling like hotcakes out th [...]

    18. It was alright. Not as gripping as Wasdin's SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper, though.Before I dive in, I'd like to say; make no mistake I enjoyed this book. It was a bit disjointed and Don Mann is obviously not a professional author. But I found many aspects of it enjoyable and worthy of praise. Particularly his honest and detailed accounts of some of the action he's seen.I was a bit taken aback by how much time he spent talking about his athletic activities outside the milit [...]

    19. I found this book to be a useful and worthwhile read which was only compromised by the extensive level of redacted text which had been crudely replaced by black lines where the text had once been. The sheer volume of the redacted text undermined what was otherwise an interesting account of how one man undertook the metamorphosis from an adolescent tearaway, to Patriot,ultimately serving his country as a SEAL.The narrative is based upon the SEAL Teams prior to their ascendancy into international [...]

    20. This was a very investing yet long read. The reason this book attracted me so much was because I saw Zero Dark Thirty a couple years ago and the movie sparked my interest. When I first opened the book, there were a bunch of black rectangles that blocked out words. Those black boxes in the book were put there by the government in order to keep some information classified. At first I was really confused about why Don Mann wouldn’t jut take the words out entirely, but then I realized that Don Man [...]

    21. I read this book over the summer and I have to say that I am very impressed. It was a very intersing book that always made me want to keep reading! I liked how Don completely changed is life around and decided to fulfill his lifelong dream, to become a SEAL. The only thing i did not like about the book was how alot of stuff was blacked out. It always left me suspicous and wondering what happened. Don was very intersting. He did drugs and rode motorcycles and was apart of a gang. Until one day he [...]

    22. This book came across one of my outdoors/racing RSS feeds. After reading some reviews, I saw that it was more about the author himself & a lot of his training/feats, as opposed to the takedown of Bin Laden. That interested me quite a bit more than Bin Laden & I was not disappointed to find that true. If you're looking for a book that's strictly about SEALS, their missions or the takedown of Bin Laden, this book is not it & you'll be disappointed. If you want to read about ridiculousl [...]

    23. This is an insider’s story of what it means to be a member of one of our elite fighting units, the U.S. Navy Seals. In particular, Seal Team Six gained special notoriety after the taking of Osama Bin Laden. The author spent an entire career with the SEALS beginning in the 1970s and spanning over two decades. It is a brotherhood this select fraternity offers, and only those who have endured the most grueling of initiations can understand. Mann begins with his high school days as a “badass” [...]

    24. I really enjoyed the book Inside Seal Team 6. I love reading books about the military and I especially love reading books about the Navy SEALs because I want to be Navy SEAL when I graduate college. It has been my goal for many years to become part of the Navy SEALs. Any book abut the Navy SEALs interests and me and I really enjoyed reading this book. I enjoyed reading about the missions Don went on and I enjoyed reading about the training he did to become a Navy SEAL.A quote from this book that [...]

    25. There is not much in this book that can be called an "inside" look into SEAL team six. What is said about team six is largely known and can be found in other books. There is also a fair amount of info that is redacted. This seems unnecessary and a bit frustrating to me because I was able to figure out some sections and see no reason for them to be blacked out at all. For instance, the SEAL team six operator Neil Roberts who died on the mountain top of Takur Ghar during Operation Anaconda has his [...]

    26. Don presents a wonderful and inspiring story , minus the blacked out portions due to sensitivity.Don is very frank about how he was headed down the wrong path with gangs and drugs.The U.S. Navy and military life turn his life around and saved him from ending up as many of his childhood friends had.Don not only trained and fought to become a seal and not just a seal he expected himself to be the best he could be opting for extra training and schools though they were not required.He stayed the cou [...]

    27. I liked this book because of the inside scoop of the seals. The only thing I disliked about this book was how so much was blacked out and left me hanging. Don Mann was addicted to adrenaline which got him into allot of trouble. I was surprised that the Government blacked out so many things and doesn't tell us as much as we should know. I still have some questions about the book and how he survived with the little patience he has? This book didn't remind me of any movies that I've seen. I don't t [...]

    28. THIS BOOK IS INSPIRING! After reading this I realize not anybody can be a navy SEAL, but anybody can get a book published. ANYBODY.If you were sitting at a bar and some moderately drunk oldish guy came up to you and started telling you about how he used to be a navy SEAL and how he loves being fit, interspersed with rudimentary basics of gun safety and , and you sat and listened because you're a polite and considerate person, then you already know what this book is like.It is so bad it's good. I [...]

    29. More like a 2.5Starts out okay and then it's as if a stranger dropped a box of photos, and I picked them up in no particular order and started flipping through them. After a detailed description of his wild and almost wasted youth, Mann's book gives brief snapshots that seem to be in no particular order. He waivers from describing training to a quick mention of a girlfriend to a marathon he's running in. I got very little sense of his Seal career, and I thought the redacted portions were unneces [...]
