Trigger Men is a great balance of history and heroism. It's clear there was an extraordinary amount of time spent to uncover and tell the story of our military snipers, and their important everyday missions that most of us could never dare to imagine. The only small technical detail I had a challenge with is the fact the orator consistently spelled out S-T-A rather than pronouncing it "Stay" as is the actual practice. However, the story was well crafted and structured in a manner that leant itself to the great blend of history and practical application of the essential skills of the American Sniper.

This book is a good supporting read for the sniper in you life. Not for the casual reader, far too detailed and in the weeds for the non-shooter world. A few interesting stories, but many "lessons and pointer" are repeated over and over....

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and feel I have learnt a lot from it. Speaking as a women in my mid 40?s who has never been in the military or involved with a military man, a few terms used I did not fully understand. But I feel when the author makes a reference to the ?art of warfare?, that this ?art of the sniper?, is akin to the ?art of the samurai?. With the amount of not only discipline and training involved. But the inner strength and intuition to be able to weigh up a situation, act on it and not make mistakes. I did find the comments about how a police sniper is treated, as opposed to a military very interesting as well. A very good book well worth buying, thank you to the author and narrator

Best book on snipers an gun men I have read. Very informative, not only through true story's of snipers, but it goes into the mechanics of guns, the ammunition, ballistics, physical and environmental effects on bullets. It looks at not just military snipers but other groups of specialist gun men such as SWAT. Just an amazing read, giving a great insight into the lives and roles of snipers and giving you an understanding of their personalities, tactics and tactics.
If you are interested in sniping and have no exposure to the subject you might enjoy. If you are a shooter don't expect to gain any valuable insight to the craft. The narrator's voice didnt suit the content. I didn't enjoy this book at all.
