It’s the book the Pentagon doesn’t want you to read, claiming it has “secrets” no American should know.

After weeks of anticipation, the SEAL book that gives a gripping, eyewitness account of the historic raid that brought down Osama bin Laden has been released.

No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden has exploded into the #1-selling book in America.

On Sunday, "60 Minutes" will be interviewing the author, Matt Bissonnette, a.k.a. Mark Owen.

In fact, demand for the shocking SEAL tell-all has been so great that its publisher was forced to rush No Easy Day into print and is now scrambling to print more copies.

To say the book arrives with much controversy would be an understatement.

The Pentagon has already chastised the former Navy SEAL who penned No Easy Day for breaking his pledge to secrecy and divulging military secrets.

The Defense Department is threatening legal action.

The author insists he revealed no classified information.

He also says the book is not political. But the AP reported the book offers disparaging comments about President Obama and Vice President Biden.

In No Easy Day, Matt Bissonnette (writing under the pseudonym Mark Owen) details what really happened inside bin Laden’s compound and accuses President Obama of taking too much credit for green-lighting the mission.

See Why Obama Is Furious:

'No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden'

The Pentagon and Obama administration are furious that a Navy SEAL has broken his silence to reveal what happened on the day bin Laden was killed ... and the role played by President Obama in that remarkable mission.

For the first time anywhere, a SEAL who was part of the bin Laden mission gives his first-person account of the planning and execution of the bin Laden raid ... and his own confrontation with the terrorist mastermind — including what he witnessed during bin Laden's final moments.

Please Note: This book has just been released.
From the streets of Iraq to the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips in the Indian Ocean, and from the mountaintops of Afghanistan to the third floor of Osama bin Laden’s compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group — commonly known as SEAL Team Six — has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines.

No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama bin Laden puts readers alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives. The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen’s life straight through to the radio call confirming bin Laden’s death, is an essential piece of modern history.

In No Easy Day, Owen also takes readers onto the field of battle in America’s ongoing War on Terror and details the selection and training process for one of the most elite units in the military.

Owen’s story draws on his youth in Alaska and describes the SEALs’ quest to challenge themselves at the highest levels of physical and mental endurance.

With boots-on-the-ground detail, Owen describes numerous previously unreported missions that illustrate the life and work of a SEAL and the evolution of the team after the events of September 11.

In telling the true story of the SEALs whose talents, skills, experiences, and exceptional sacrifices led to one of the greatest victories in the War on Terror, Mark Owen honors the men who risk everything for our country, and he leaves readers with a deep understanding of the warriors who keep America safe.
