The main element that sets this apart from other SEAL memoirs is that Mr. Denver was also a SEAL trainer, and goes in the philosophy and methodology of SEAL training. Goes into the internal debate when they were ordered to 'make' more SEALs. This is only about a quarter of the book however, the rest is standard (by SEAL memoir standards).

This job involves killing people-- for good purposes, yes, but killing people nonetheless...
