Act of Valor stars a group of active-duty Navy SEALs in a powerful story of contemporary global anti-terrorism. Inspired by true events, the story combines stunning combat sequences, up-to-the minute battlefield technology and heart-pumping emotion for the ultimate action adventure. Act of Valor takes listeners deep into the secretive world of the most elite, highly trained group of warriors in the modern world.

When the rescue of a kidnapped CIA operative leads to the discovery of a deadly terrorist plot against the U.S., a team of SEALs is dispatched on a worldwide manhunt. As the valiant men of Bandito Platoon race to stop a coordinated attack that could kill and wound thousands of American civilians, they must balance their commitment to country, team and their families back home. Each time they accomplish their mission, a new piece of intelligence reveals another shocking twist to the deadly terror plot, which stretches from Chechnya to the Philippines and from Ukraine to Somalia. The widening operation sends the SEALs across the globe as they track the terrorist ring to the U.S.-Mexico border, where they engage in an epic firefight with an outcome that has potentially unimaginable consequences for the future of America.

    " great movie book, better than the movie and they both are great. reading this book before hand which everyone does did not ruin it for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Bradley | 2/15/2014

    " Really enjoyed this book - don't know how much of it is true, but fascinating to think of those who are putting their lives on the line like this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve H | 2/7/2014

    " I'm not a Tom Clancy fan. I read the book as a favor and forced myself to finish it. I don't think Clancey wrote this book. Didn't flow and very broken up in story line. Used expression I did not understand and I didn't bother to look up. "Seal", "macho" book that doesn't interest me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 2/5/2014

    " ok, but poor ending. does not end well "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nadir | 2/2/2014

    " This was an entertaining, if somewhat formulaic read. It was educational as well, in so far as the authors built the story such that just about every SEAL mission and every means of insertion was covered. Made for a good airplane read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shaun Hulme | 1/10/2014

    " Book was good enough but seemed to finish fast as if the author was on a deadline. I would recommend this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brittani | 1/3/2014

    " This is a really cool story. I did not understand a lot of the military terms, but that is part of what made it seem so real. It paints a great picture of what this war is like and the character of Seals. It was a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samantha | 1/3/2014

    " Loved Loved this book. I have a loved one in the military and honestly this book scared the crap out of me but the detail is amazing. The understanding of the whole mission and parts of the family life around the SEALS was very realistic and chilling. I will def. be watching the movie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephen | 12/25/2013

    " It was a good read. It was also very military correct as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 12/5/2013

    " Good book ....great characters. The downfall was you saw the ending coming at the beginning of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Weidinger | 11/29/2013

    " it's a volatile world, live life full, no greater love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 11/24/2013

    " Overall, worth the read. There are lots of military terms that could get confusing if you don't already have some understanding. It gives an interesting look inside the reality of being in the SEALS without over-romanticizing. I hope the movie stays true to the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tony | 7/27/2013

    " I picked this book up on whim, and I wanted to read it before I saw the movie. I'm a little disappointed in it as it was nothing more than a bunch of Navy SEAL bravado mixed in with some technical terms. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris Brinson | 6/27/2013

    " I didn't like this book/movie "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg Parrott | 5/30/2013

    " Very much like the movie... first time in a long time that I read a book after the movie... in this case I'm pretty sure the book was developed from the screenplay. All in all, not bad, but not the top of the genre either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 4/13/2013

    " A bit drawn out of a book. But a good read. Makes you think about all the stuff that the government does that the public never learns about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ethan | 4/1/2013

    " I liked this book because the action sequences were well thought-out. Also, the plot was interesting. Overall, 4/5 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James Devlin | 3/12/2013

    " The movie was better. It's a novelization of a highly visual and highly aural movie that you cannot do justice in written form. Though well written, I prefer the movie to the book in this rare instance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Awesomeaction | 12/15/2012

    " If you liked the movie you would like the book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 C.L. Swinney | 11/16/2012

    " Was an excellent work but not his best. Great read though! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Margo Jacobs | 8/20/2012

    " If you've seen the movie, there is no need to read the book. It brings little additional information or emotion than the movie portrays. I stopped reading after 30 pages because it was just too familiar. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Langley | 7/8/2012

    " This was an awesome book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Dalton | 2/26/2012

    " I loved this book. Real SEAL stories and real people. Dick Couch is the author and he did an outstanding job describing the details and what the SEALS go thru in the field and at home. I will probably re-read this story every few years. "
