No Hero is the prequel to No Easy Day, showing Owen's progression from a young kid in Alaska to the very top of Devgru. Owen charts his path from deciding he wanted to be a SEAL to his decision to leave, as well as countering some of the flak he's taken for writing No Easy Day. Not as fast-paced, or as exciting, as No Easy Day this book is more in-depth look at what Devgru does, and did. Yet this is still a good book, and a valuable one to learn more about Devgru, something that got Owen into trouble for writing No Easy Day. No Hero will be a valuable book to learn from for years to come.
