From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Make Your Bed comes Sea Stories, a collection of stories of bravery and heroism from Admiral McRaven’s 37-year-long career as a Navy SEAL and commander of all U.S. Special Operations Forces. McRaven is a part of American military history, having orchestrated missions including the capture of Saddam Hussein, the rescue of Captain Richard Phillips, and the raid to kill Osama bin Laden.

Sea Stories begins in 1963 at a French officer’s club in Paris, where Allied officers and their wives gathered to have drinks and tell stories about their adventures during World War II, and where a young McRaven learned the value of a good story. From childhood days sneaking into high-security nuclear sites to a day job of hunting terrorists and rescuing hostages, Sea Stories is full of valuable life lessons from the four-star admiral. In conversation with Jake Tapper, CNN’s chief Washington correspondent and the anchor of “The Lead with Jake Tapper” and “State of the Union.”
