More at Around Town: Backstage at the book tour

"In the Shadow of Greatness is a powerful set of stories from gifted young men and women serving on the front lines of America's most important wars. Their combination of raw heroism, bravery, and sacrifice make it a gripping and deeply moving book."
Seth G. JonesAuthor of Hunting in the Shadows: The Pursuit of Al Qa'ida since 9/11,former senior advisor at U.S. Special Operations Command

"I thank you for sharing your stories and opening America’s eyes to the challenges faced by your generation, which in my view really is the next 'greatest generation.' . . .  My advice to you is simple: Continue to listen, learn, and lead in the decades ahead. Your families and your fellow citizens are counting on you."
Adm. Mike Mullen, USN (Ret.)
17th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
from the epilogue
"This is a must read for all Americans - an up close and personal account of duty and sacrifice by graduates of the U.S. Naval Academy in Iraq and Afghanistan. You'll stand a little straighter when you mingle with these remarkable fellow citizens."
Tom BrokawAuthor of The Greatest Generation
"This powerful book captures the bravery and sacrifice of a decade of war, and its lessons apply to the boardroom as well as the battlefield. Read it and take heart in a new generation of proven leaders." 
Nathaniel FickU.S. Marine Corps veteran
Best-selling author of One Bullet Away 
"The men and women of the U.S. Naval Academy class of 2002 now have a dual legacy of service: first, their leadership around the world during wartime, and now their well-told consideration of what it all meant. In the Shadow of Greatness is an inspiring book."
