    New York Times best seller

    The unapologetic, laugh-your-ass-off military memoir both vets and civilians have been waiting for, from a five-tour Army Ranger turned YouTube phenomenon and zealous advocate for veterans

    Members of the military’s special operations branches share a closely guarded secret: They love their jobs. They relish the opportunity to fight. They are thankful for it, even, and hopeful that maybe, possibly, they’ll also get to kill a bunch of bad guys while they’re at it. You don’t necessarily need to thank them for their service - the pleasure is all theirs.

    In this hilarious and personal memoir, listeners ride shotgun alongside former Army Ranger and private military contractor and current social media phenomenon Mat Best, into the action and its aftermath, both abroad and at home. From surviving a skin infection in the swampy armpit of America (aka Columbus, Georgia) to kicking down doors on the outskirts of Ramadi, from blowing up a truck full of enemy combatants to witnessing the effects of a suicide bombing right in front of your face, Thank You for My Service gives listeners who love America and love the good guys fresh insight into what it’s really like inside the minds of the men and women on the front lines.

    It’s also a sobering yet steadying glimpse at life for veterans after the fighting stops, when the enemy becomes self-doubt or despair and you begin to wonder why anyone should be thanking you for anything, least of all your service. How do you keep going when something you love turns you into somebody you hate? For veterans and their friends and families, Thank You for My Service will offer comfort in the form of a million laughs and counsel as a blueprint for what to do after the war ends and the real fight begins.

    And for civilians, this is the insider account of military life you won’t find anywhere else, told with equal amounts of heart and balls. It’s Deadpool meets Captain America, except one went to business school and one went to therapy, and it’s anyone’s guess which is which.

    Obnoxious

    The author thinks he is so very cool, but his forced attempt to be funny, combined with an unpleasant tonality in his voice, made that I gave the book back after less than 5 minutes. Not funny at all, and a huge lack of professionalism and some apparent behavioral issues make me suspect that a lot of his war stories are gravely exaggerated or simply made up. For authentic stories I recommend to read Eric L. Haney "inside delta force" or Peter Ratcliffe "eye of the storm" instead of this immature nonsense.

    Look how great I am

    In the book the author basically just brags about how great he is and how he can just kill everyone.

    Funny and insightful

    Really great book and it being read by Mat Best himself makes it even better, more authentic I would say.
    The only question I have is what do you have with Germans an poop and pee? I as a German have never encountered that personally that we are so obsessed with that.
    Other than that great book and even greater audiobook keep going and creating a from Germany
