On Reading ‘American Sniper’

American_Sniper_bookA few hours ago I read that the legendary Clint Eastwood directed movie America Sniper is 2015’s #1 movie so far.

I happen to be reading this #1 New York Times bestseller.  It’s an intriquing read for sure–beginning with Chris Kyle’s recruiting and training to be a Navy Seal and eventually a sniper.

When tempted to put down the book and skip ahead to the movie (which is now on DVD), I’m reminded of Chris Kyle’s time in sniper school and the need for professional discipline, which, when translated means: to succeed as a stalker (which is so crucial for a sniper), the student must take his time.
