Mark Owen's instant bestseller, No Easy Day, focused on the high-profile targets and headline-grabbing chapters of the author's 13 years as a Navy SEAL. His follow-up, No Hero, offers a rare counterpoint: an intimate account of Owen's most personally meaningful missions, missions that never made headlines, including the moments in which he learned the most about himself and his teammates in both success and failure. Owen offers readers a close up view of the experiences and values that make Mark Owen and the SEALs he served with so capable.

No Hero is the prequel to No Easy Day, showing Owen's progression from a young kid in Alaska to the very top of Devgru. Owen charts his path from deciding he wanted to be a SEAL to his decision to leave, as well as countering some of the flak he's taken for writing No Easy Day. Not as fast-paced, or as exciting, as No Easy Day this book is more in-depth look at what Devgru does, and did. Yet this is still a good book, and a valuable one to learn more about Devgru, something that got Owen into trouble for writing No Easy Day. No Hero will be a valuable book to learn from for years to come.
