Summary:

NOW A BLOCKBUSTER MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY CLINT EASTWOOD—NOMINATED FOR SIX ACADEMY AWARDS, INCLUDING BEST PICTURE
From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. His fellow American warriors, whom he protected with deadly precision from rooftops and stealth positions during the Iraq War, called him “The Legend”; meanwhile, the enemy feared him so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle, who was tragically killed in 2013, writes honestly about the pain of war—including the deaths of two close SEAL teammates—and in moving first-person passages throughout, his wife, Taya, speaks openly about the strains of war on their family, as well as on Chris. Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.

    I read books like this for one reason; perspective. I've never been to war or served my country in that regard. I lack the perspective of the brave warriors who risk their lives for our country. Chris Kyle's story is priceless, forcing us all to take a closer look at the freedom we so often take for granted. Evil is out there, it pulls at the fabric of our country, and if we are not careful, it will devour us. We are so blessed to have the brave and the strong who stand in the gap on our behalf. My prayers go out for Chris, his family, his brothers in arms, and the service men and women who fought (and still fight) to keep us safe. God bless you all!

    Narrator did not sound authentic and his cadence was too slow. Listen at 1.25 speed did helped.
