In american sniper its more like a diary and explaining more of what the seals do. Also the mental and physical effect it has on him and his social and love life. this book would go to people that want to know more about war fair and how soldiers act. He starts signing up for the military and then goes into seals and is in a lot of stressed out situations. There was one test he took and it showed that his heart slowed when he was in combat and when he wasent it was going really fast. which is re ...more

One of the top 10 books I've ever read. I felt drawn in and was able to understand and "feel" the book. The honesty and transparency was refreshing and the humor had me giggling out loud many times. His love of his wife, children, family, military family was loyal and true along with his love of his country. This book is fantastic and a great read, everything is explained for those of us non-military types. Makes me appreciate the sacrifices that military personnel make so others can be safe and ...more

I wanted to read this before I saw the movie. It was not very well written but maybe that was part of the point - he was just an guy doing a job that he loved surrounded by an amazing circle of family and friends. After reading about the making of the movie, I realize it will be different than the book and why but that is okay.

Honored hero


I enjoyed reading about Chris Kyle. There a lot of hero's I don't hear or read about. If people don't like what he did after he came home doesn't have anything to do with what he did for the country. He did what he was capable of doing when the time came.

Just plain sucked

Littlefield was a coward. NOT an an American hero. Shots fired in combat is one thing, shots fired for no other reason than he was too chickenshit to go out on his own, to control someone else's destiny does NOT a hero make.

Amazing!!!

A very good short synopsis of Chris Kyle's life. Every American should read this for the ending chapters. They tell of how our present day leaders feel about our military, or in this case, their lack of respect!

don't buy

Nothing in this short book that's not in Kyle's autobiography. Don't buy this book. It is obviously written in an attempt to make money with facts gathered from another book.

I love this book

Chris Kyle was a true American hero! A life cut short! I hope his wife continues what her husband started.

True hero

I know he did his job and some think that shouldn't be praised. Yet he was the best. If we idolize celebrities...we should worship men and women like Chris Kyle.

My review

interesting and a little scary as Mr. Kyle is not open to other cultures, believed that his way, his beliefs were the only ones.

American sniper information

I liked the book because it was straight forward in providing some interesting facts of the man's life path to his career.

Not the best book to read

The mistakes in grammar make this a difficult book to read. The information is secondary at best. It reads like a high school term paper.
