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.

    " incredible. i saw the movie first and yet still enjoyed the book better. i have become a huge fan of dick couch. what a life these guys choose and the rest of us are just humming along oblivious to their sacrifice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don Knight | 2/16/2014

    " I have only written one book review before. So please take it easy on me. I think this was a very well written book. I believe this was written after the movie. I am guessing it is somewhat of a guide. I am prety sure in this case the movie will be better than the book. I still believe that this is a very good book. It tells of the sacrafices these Navy Seals make for their country. I would recommend this book to any one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rabindranauth | 2/16/2014

    " Damn book made me teary at the end. Ugh. So much feels x_x "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan | 2/12/2014

    " 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 C.L. Swinney | 2/6/2014

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terry | 1/22/2014

    " This was a bit difficult to read in spots. I like the storyline, but wish Lee Child could've helped improve the action writing. And I didn't like some of the story elements at the end. Perhaps the most annoying element was the switch to simple present tense for the final fight scenes after writing that was past tense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steve H | 1/21/2014

    " 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 Scott Cameron | 1/19/2014

    " Pretty good. Incredibly patriotic though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nadir | 12/7/2013

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Awesomeaction | 11/12/2013

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tika | 9/18/2013

    " I liked the story the book presented, but for me it was really technically with all the weapons and military talk. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert Marion | 9/11/2013

    " This is a book written from a movie. Unfortunately, it shows. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 WinieP | 8/23/2013

    " Excellent novelization of the movie Act of Valor, which gave me a deeper knowledge, and better appreciation of the Navy Seals. Dick Couch, the author, is a former Navy Seal, and did an very good job of presenting technical and military jargon so the lay person could understand it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Timothy Rice | 6/24/2013

    " I have read a lot of Tom Clancy and a couple of Dick Couch books and for some reason it didn't meet my expectations of either writter. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the book but I think the movie may end up better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurann | 2/12/2013

    " God bless America and those honorable men and women who keep us safe, free and protected. Amazing book. Left me feeling very humbled and grateful. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Margo Jacobs | 12/15/2012

    " 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 Peggy Sweeney | 11/26/2012

    " I'm less than 25% into this book and I am fascinated. can't put it down. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wanda Porter | 11/7/2012

    " One of the best books I have read in a while! The tears flowed at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 5/3/2012

    " Personally, I liked it better than the movie, as we all know, the books are way more descriptive. There is a lot of info you can draw from this book. I recommend to anyone who likes good war stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug | 2/21/2012

    " The story was OK. What this really emphasize or brought home to me is how much is sacrificed by those who serve - SEALs and other SFers of course but also those in the rest of the services separation and death as definite possibilities. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christoff | 2/6/2012

    " The story line was very good and entertaining. Knowing that it was based on actul events made it even better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristian Ehrenreich-hansen | 1/29/2012

    " Great book and even better then the movie! You feel emotional for the characters and sometimes find yourself almost crying. The plot develops at the correct pace and you don't find yourself sitting through long boring parts. Action 24/7 and the ending will leave you wanting more. Recommend it! "
