Kyle has more than 150 officially confirmed kills (the previous American record was 109), though his remarkable career total has not been made public by the Pentagon. In this New York Times bestselling memoir, Kyle shares the true story of his extraordinary decade-long career, including his multiple combat tours in Iraq (Operation Iraqi Freedom) and elsewhere from 1999-2009. Kyle's riveting first-person account of how he went from Texas rodeo cowboy to expert marksman and feared assassin offers a fascinating view of modern-day warfare and one of the most in-depth and illuminating looks into the secret world of Special Ops ever written.Read Less
Fine in Fine jacket. A square solid tight clean unread virtually new copy. The story about old Scruffy face that Chris was sued over is included in this copy. This may be a remainder. There is a mark on the bottom edge of the text block but it is almost the size of a pen point.
Very Good + in Very Good + jacket. Remainder A square solid tight carefully read copy. This copy has some light pagedge soil, a light corner bump, some lightish board edgewear, a two light tape shadows to each board caused by an attempt to tape the jacket to the book. The priced jacket has some light rubbing wear to the rear panel, some light edgewear. This is a hard to find book in a first printing........the publisher grossly under estimated the author's and /or the book's popularity. I attended a signing in Dallas in January 2012. 900 people prox showed up and the book store had only 100 books prox on hand.
A great read for anyone who wants to know what snipeing is all about.

Sniper Book is Interesting
This book tells the story from the sniper viewpoint and from the view of his wife. Quite interesting in the training and cooperation of various units who have their own set of snipers work to get the job done. It is a good book and well written and keeps your attention about what is really going on in the war.

This personal account of being a sniper is a revealing account into the lives of this dangerous and deadly area of our military. A fascinating addition to the story, are comments made by Chris Kyle's wife as to the impact the military has on families at home. This book is a fast read, but probably not for the sqeamish.
