Remarkable Story of A Truly Remarkable American Hero, January 3, 2012

American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History
What a remarkable story of heroism, patriotism, and self-sacrifice by an even more remarkable American, Chris Kyle. A Navy SEAL and highly trained sniper, Kyle is even more remarkable in his straightforward admittance that his accomplishments alone are not to be lauded, but the accomplishments and sacrifices of his fellow military men who sacrificed their vision, limbs, and some ultimately their lives in fighting for the freedoms that we often take for granted, yet hold so dear. It may not be much, but here is one American that is forever grateful and thankful to Chris Kyle and ALL of our brave men and women fighting for our country.Kyle joins the ranks of such American sniper greats as Carlos Hathcock 93 confirmed kills during the Vietnam War, and whose sniper exploits were so eloquently related to the reader in these two books written by Charles Henderson;...

Very broad stroke tale of Chris Kyle's career as a SEAL. Broad in the sense that there is very little detail on actual shots taken/contact with enemies (where he actually engaged targets in his capacity as a sniper).I was initially going to review the book after having read the first 30% of it which left me a bit disappointed but I decided to give it a chance, and finished it before re-writing my entire review. I fully agree with some of the previous reviews that the writing could have been better and I have to admit that I actually started wanting to skip all the passages written by Chris's wife (Taya) entirely. It does give a bit of perspective on their private life but as a shooter I was more interested in Chris's actual accounts.I found it very interesting (and initially a bit brazen) how Chris starts his book exactly the same way Carlos Hatchcock* did with his autobiography referencing having had to kill a woman the same way Carlos started his book having...

To begin, even though I didn't like the book I would like to thank Chris Kyle for his service to this great country. He is defiantly a patriot.In simple terms, the book is just bad. It was poorly written and jumped around so much it was as though it was told by a drunken sailor in a bar telling a bunch of war stories to a 4th grader that in turn made it a (poorly) written book.The term "silent professional" was brought up many, many times describing SEAL's. But with all the stories of drunken bar brawls and being arrested many times (and of course always being let go) its hard to believe in that terminology. I wouldn't let one bad apple spoil the bunch but all the bar fight stories and constantly being reminded about how much of a badass he is just got really old.The one story about beating up the UFC fighters in a bar after a big UFC event in Tennessee in April '07 is very hard to believe considering there were no UFC events in Tennessee during...
