The authors allow us to understand the mind of why and how Jack Coughlin did his deadly war work. I found it the type of book I can recommend without any reservation to someone who is remotely interested in how one of the most successful snipers did his job. He is a great American.

This is definitely a page turner. I havn't read many Military books, and I find that this book offers significant insight into the minds of those involved in the war in Iraq. I highly recommend to anyone who can stand literary-gore.

After reading several books written by retired generals, it's nice to read a book from a soldier's perspective during a war. From preparation to completion of tasks, Coughlin has given us a glimpse of his daily routines and challenges. Overall, this book is a light read. While a few excerpts slowed the tempo of the book, the rest of the book kept you rivited to your seat.

Coughlin and Kuhlman were with the 7th Marines, Battalion 3/4, in action constantly through Operation Iraqi Freedom which brought the curtain down on Saddam Hussein.

Sniper Coughlin earlier was in action in Somalia.

This book provides a clear, dispassionate treatment of these modern conflicts and particularly the physical and mental challenges faced by the sniper in these diverse environments. This is a well written account which offers a detailed inside explanation of the demanding work and experiences of the modern warrior to those of us who have not "been there".

Jack Coughlin is the Marine Corps top ranked sniper, the man who personally brings America's military muscle to the enemy's front door. In 20 yrs of active service, he has accumulated one of the most impressive records in the corps, ranging through many of the world's hot spots. During operation Iraqi Freedom alone, he recorded at least 36 kills, 13 of them in a single 24 hour period. In Shooter, Coughlin has written a highly personal story about his deadly craft,taking readers deep inside an invisible society that is off limits to outsiders. This is not a heroic battlefield memoir, but the careful study of an exceptional man as he carries forward one of the deadliest legacies in the U.S. Military.
