On September 11th, Penguin’s Dutton Adult is publishing a first hand account of the killing of Osama Bin Laden. The title, No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission That Killed Osama Bin Laden, was written by a member of the elite squad who killed the terrorist leader known as SEAL Team Six.
The title has been published under the pseudonym Mark Owen, but Fox News reported that they discovered his real identity.
The title is already shooting up the charts from presales. It is currently the No. 1 bestseller
on Amazon, ahead of all of the Fifty Shades of Grey
titles and the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
Here is more about the book: “No Easy Day puts readers alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the twenty-four-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives. The blow-by-blow narrative of the assault, beginning with the helicopter crash that could have ended Owen’s life straight through to the radio call confirming Bin Laden’s death, is an essential piece of modern history.”
The book has been on the rise since it went on pre-sale. Earlier this week, The New York Times
reporter Julie Bosman tweeted
: “Almost three weeks away from publication, the Navy SEAL book is already #4 on the Amazon bestsellers list.”
