In a fast-paced and action-packed narrative, Navy SEAL commander Rorke Denver tackles the questions that have emerged about America’s past decade at war—from what makes a hero to why we fight and what it does to us. Heroes are not always the guys who jump on grenades. Sometimes, they are the snipers who decide to hold their fire, the wounded operators who find fresh ways to In a fast-paced and action-packed narrative, Navy SEAL commander Rorke Denver tackles the questions that have emerged about America’s past decade at war—from what makes a hero to why we fight and what it does to us. Heroes are not always the guys who jump on grenades. Sometimes, they are the snipers who decide to hold their fire, the wounded operators who find fresh ways to contribute, or the wives who keep the families together back home. Even a SEAL commander—especially a SEAL commander—knows that. But what’s a hero, really? What do we have a right to expect from our heroes? How should we hold them accountable? Amid all the loose talk of heroes, these questions are seldom asked. As a SEAL commander, Rorke Denver is uniquely qualified to answer questions about what makes a hero or a leader, why men kill, how best to serve your country, how battlefield experiences can elevate us, and most important, why we fight and what it does for and to us. And in Worth Dying For, Denver shares his personal experiences from the forefront of war today. Denver applies some of his SEAL sense to nine big-picture, news-driven questions of war and peace, in a way that appeals to all sides of the public conversation. By broadening the issues, sharing his insights, and achieving what civilian political leaders have been utterly unable to, Denver eloquently shares answers to America’s most burning questions about war, heroism, and what it all means for America’s future.

    This book is not a review of war memories but an analysis of the current condition of American. I was impressed by the wide range of reading Denver has accomplished. Denver provides a history of the Navy SEAL program along with a review of the training and goals of training. The SEAL training emphasizes teamwork and leadership skills and to never quit. As I read Denver’s list of requirement of what makes a hero, I could think of a number of people I know that fit the requirement. Somehow this mad This book is not a review of war memories but an analysis of the current condition of American. I was impressed by the wide range of reading Denver has accomplished. Denver provides a history of the Navy SEAL program along with a review of the training and goals of training. The SEAL training emphasizes teamwork and leadership skills and to never quit. As I read Denver’s list of requirement of what makes a hero, I could think of a number of people I know that fit the requirement. Somehow this made me look at society in a different way. I found that I read this book in sections as I had to stop and ruminate on what I had read. Denver makes one stop and analyzes the country from your own viewpoint. I think this is a must read book for everyone but particularly for politicians. He reveals that we have a leadership vacuum in this country. In the last part of the book he discuss how the average citizen has grown soft over the years as life is easy as compared to 50 or more years ago. He thinks people need to overcome challenges and difficulties to become better citizens. I was impressed with his analysis of American’s military, civilian and political disconnect and he gives suggestions as how to correct it. This book is well written and easy to read as well as provides food for thought. Denver is a decorated Navy SEAL. The author did a good job narrating the book.

Worth Dying For is a very interesting and inspiring read. Rorke delivers a deep message of understanding for people without understanding of the military world. Worth Dying For certainly delivers some very fine points on being a leader, when it is right and when it is wrong to kill, what we can do more for those who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, and being of service in one way or another. In each of the ten chapters, Rorke addresses some major issues that some people (perhaps many) are fully unaware of or choose to ignore. This book shows what SEALs are capable of and Rorke certainly delivers some lessons that we civilians can learn from: leadership, service, thoughtful, and open-minded. I would recommend this book to others because it shows what the military stands and fights for. And because I believe that God has a plan for Rorke to bring understanding to civilians and members of our military. Thank you for your service Rorke and God bless.

    I am interested in all things military. My dad was in the army, and I will always regret (a small part of me will) not following in his footsteps. Anyway this was a unique perspective to read from. I have a huge amount of respect for Navy SEALS, not because I consider them heroes, but because I know that it takes a lot to become one. I enjoyed Denver's voice and military experience.

I think that we often toss around the title hero, to those that are both deserving and undeserving, without putting too much thought of what the word means or the burden that it places on the person. Denver digs deep into the meaning and the expectations we have of heroes. This is not just a military book though. Denver talks also about how the skills and developed training that he went through can be translated to the civilian world. His tone is conversational, not quite serious but not completely laid back. It definitely sounds like a military person is talking, and this is not a bad thing. He mentions how a soldier should be a warrior as well as a thinker, and you can tell that he is of this caliber. I enjoyed reading this, and I will be getting his other book Damn Few: Making the Modern Seal Warrior and I will be checking out the tv show American Grit, because I believe he is part of it. 4 stars ****

A good example is found in Chapter 4 called How to Kill Right. In this chapter Denver writes about the philosophy of killing and includes Biblical examples of when taking a life is correct. I'd like to include some quotations from this chapter, but as I am reviewing a galley or ARC, I can not provide quotations which is a standard request of almost all book publishers. Suffice it to say Denver provides good examples of how killing, even for the most noblest causes, changes a person. He also details the reasons for killing, how to kill with respect, and how taking such actions may affect an individual. If you are a conservative, or come from a military background, Denver's book will ring true and you'll be agreeing with almost everything he writes. Recommend. Review written after downloading a galley from Edelweiss.

    Denver makes some great points, but many of his ideas lack development. He failed to connect his thoughts in a coherent manner, instead settling for an excruciating amount of headings and subheadings, rather than linking sections with meaningful transitions. The writing was choppy. On occasion it was hard to even comprehend the point of his anecdotes. He had a chapter on leadership, one on structural efficiency, a chapter on why soldiers fight and die, and a section on his ideas for improving US Denver makes some great points, but many of his ideas lack development.

These themes, with further development, could have each been books unto themselves. As it is, there was little cohesion between them. More of a compilation of essays than a full-fledged book. I'm confused what Ellis Henican even did in assisting in the writing of this book, seeing as it still was not that extraordinary.

    Originally, I expected this book to be a biography. What I found instead was an excellent book on both leadership and issues dividing the country. Rorke is on target with his critiques and with his analysis of issues our country faces. An excellent and fast read.

    This seems like a bunch of disparate thoughts by a navy Seal. I mostly agree with what he has to say, which is basically that as a nation we are too divided and we need to find ways to come together. He doesn't offer any solutions though.

    "Worth Dying For" by Rorke Denver is a book in which explains some base parts about the military, while also questioning things such as "What defines Heroism?" or "What is worth dying for? (buh duh chee)". Rorke Denver goes on to explain that what makes a hero is not about who has the most medals, or who is most popular, it's about the people who die to make sure his country, family, and friends are all safe.

In a fast-paced and action-packed narrative, Navy SEAL commander Rorke Denver tackles the questions that have emerged about America’s past decade at war—from what makes a hero to why we fight and what it does to us. Heroes are not always the guys who jump on grenades. Sometimes, they are the snipers who decide to hold their fire, the wounded operators who find fresh ways to contribute, or the wives who keep the families together back home.

This our country, from sea to shining sea: The United States Of America. I am not sure what our youth are taught now however when I was growing up we were taught if we served in our military then we should be prepared to die in our Country’s service. Commander Denver was a Navy SEAL serving overseas and he has written this book to address ten pressing issues: What Makes A Hero, How To Be Brave, The Right and Wrong Ways To Kill, Bridging The Military-Civilian Divide, What We Really Owe Our Returning Veterans. Commander Denver tells us there will be a lot of talk about service, which is where everything else begins. This is our country. It is great. It has the potential to be greater still. This book will help us get there. This is a book that will help you see the greatness God has put here. This is also a book that will make a great gift to friends and family so that they can have a mind-change about the wonder of this country as well..

    Denver is a Navy SEAL with some strong opinions about heroism, working ethics, leadership and the American Dream. This short book is his answer to what is wrong with America and how can we fix it? Why I started this book: I am a junkie for Navy SEAL (okay, any soldier's, marine's, sailor's, airman's and/or firefighter's) biography. I blame Suzanne Brockmann and many other romance novels, that sparked the question of what can of person does this job in real life?

I blame Suzanne Brockmann and many other romance novels, that sparked the question of what can of person does this job in real life? Why I finished it: Like Eric Greitens Denver's service as a Navy SEAL has lead him to ponder on what makes someone a hero. What is courage? And how can I work past fear? His love of America flows throughout this book, and Denver is certain that we can fix America with a little more elbow grease and volunteerism. I admire his optimism, and in his own life he has demonstrated that individuals can overcome huge obstacles. But since I just finished White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America I found his argument of social mobility a little circular. The top 1% have always been there... by that logic the bottom 1% will always be there too. I'm still fuzzy on my opinions on this. Yes, world poverty is huge and much worse than America's but does that mean that ours isn't bad. That argument feels like, you don't need a jacket here, because its so much colder in Antarctica. And the whole equality of beginning vs. equality of result; I don't think that it's proponents have voiced their theory to its fullest. Equality at the beginning means that every child needs access to quality schooling. Heck in WWII we had public day cares, that cooked dinners, so that mothers could work in the factories to build the tanks and airplanes. We can work together as a society to move the bottom 1% up. Yes, hard work is important... but where you start in the race matters. Denver has proven in his life that he is a team player and willing to help others... and I enjoyed the reminder that everyone benefits when we listen to those with opposite opinions. Diversity is a strength when we work together.

    I loved RTD's first book, "Damn Few." It opened my eyes to the Special Ops community and all they do to even become Special Ops, as well as all they and their families sacrifice for them to fight for our way of life. I was forever changed. This book is different yet also inspiring and incredibly motivational. It focuses on lessons learned from a lifetime of serving and incorporating them into all areas of life.

I was forever changed. This book is different yet also inspiring and incredibly motivational. It focuses on lessons learned from a lifetime of serving and incorporating them into all areas of life. Recurring themes of leadership, teamwork, and the relentless pursuit of personal improvement will resonate with readers who are in search of excellence in their personal and professional lives. Mr. Denver also addresses the fact that not everyone deserves a trophy for showing up! If you don't win -- you lose! Life is not fair. That is the truth. All the coddling and overprotecting of our youth will not serve them or the world very well. It is the parents responsibility to arm children with the resources and support they need to be more resilient and capable, as well as instilling in them a desire to serve others. Mr. Denver advocates a year of service for our youth. Sometime between high school and college, kids should do something to help others. This doesn't have to be in the military (though it could be) it can be in a host of ways right here in the US. What an awesome idea! The book is a seemingly quick and easy read but it begs rereading and reflection. You will turn to this little tome time and again for inspiration and reflection. It is concise and packed with gems of insight that apply to business and life. It is a mighty little classic.

    I really enjoyed Denver's insights into life, and can get on board with most of them! at the end of each chapter, he has these "Trident Take-Aways" that are his basic points. It's a quick read, and it encourages the reader to look beyond nominal differences like political party, perceived advantages (like what class you're born into), or wealth, and be the best form of yourself by living a life of integrity and service to others. It's a pretty great book!

For war is about sacrifice and you will experience loss, either of yourself or your buddy. SEALS fight to protect our great nation! He talks about "giving back" and how we can all SERVE in some way! Two vital questions are answered here for us: The Secret to a Rich Life and The secrets to a pain free life! How? You may ask....well just read this phenomenal book so well written and fiercely brought to our attention!

    I saw Rorke speak last year and he was amazing. I love what he says about Leadership: "If you want to guarantee failure as a leader, try achieving universal agreement on almost anything. If you can get most of your people on the same page, consider yourself lucky, and press ahead. Sometimes you need to press ahead even if you can't. In general, to get significant things accomplished, you have to be willing to crush a few souls." Also great: "Narrow the field of vision. That's the very first step.

    This was my second Denver book. I found the other one better. This one had some great concepts, but it didnt read very well. I like the stories and his path to SEAL. I enjoyed reading about the training and warfare of SEALs. But I have read other books more interesting on the topic. However, this being said, Denver's ideas and concepts for building a better America and people are spot on. I agree 100% with his words. This was my second Denver book. I found the other one better.

    This is billed as a message from the heart from a Navy SEAL, and it is that, but too often it slips into motivational speaking. Parts of it are fascinating, such as the descriptions of military life and modern warfare, but there is not enough of this. Some pieces are truly compelling, but I don't think the author capitalized on those moments enough; it could have used another hundred pages.

    Denver is an extremely intelligent individual. He has seen a lot and seems to have processed what he's seen. He discusses many relevant topics, using the insight gained by his experience. He is an example of the intellectual warrior. His thoughts do not reflect blind patriotism nor dire warnings of impending doom. This book was worth the time.

    A well written & thought out book by a top Navy Seal. He feels all Americans should spend a year of service to our Nation before age 25. This service not only could be in the military but in communities all over our land. Rorke also talks about what a true hero is like.

    Denver makes a strong case for universal service to one's country. I don't know that Americans will ever promote mandatory service but he offers the purpose and passion as well as alternatives to military service to fulfill that obligation.
