In it, www.dailykos.com reports that:Regarding The Warrior's Heart: Becoming a Man of Compassion and Courage, by Eric Greitens, Amazon reviewer By Ken C. said:
The episodic nature of this book will make it a popular title on the nonfiction shelf. Greitens first talks about his experiences with boxing lessons and humanitarian trips to Bosnia, Rwanda, and Bolivia. Each serves as concrete evidence of the author's self-discipline and commitment to others. And each is depicted in Greitens' spare, straightforward writing style. From these early missions, the book moves into Greitens' long road to becoming a Navy SEAL. The reader is treated to snapshots of many of his comrades and the training regime they suffered to become one of these rare warriors. Though never heavy-handed, Eric Greitens also uses the people he meets as character examples -- men that inspired him. Young people should be moved by these examples, as well as by Greitens' call to action at the end of the book, where he asks that they answer the call to serve by volunteering and making their world (country, town, school, neighborhood, family) a better place.
