Undaunted is the true life story of former Navy SEAL and Private Military Contractor Christopher Mark Heben. Undaunted gives the reader unreserved insight into Chris' rise to glory, including his time at BUD/S (the Navy's elite SEAL program); his felonious fall from grace after helping out a friend and finding himself caught in the U.S. legal system; and his self-willed seven-year battle to forge himself anew. Backed by a never-say-die attitude, Chris wins back his life and is further able to regain the good graces of his community. He shares stories about how he became a television military expert after the death of Osama bin Laden, his work on numerous television documentaries, and his entrepreneurial endeavors. Chris delves into his work as a Private Military Contractor at Blackwater and his myriad experiences in Northern Africa and in the Middle East--including the evacuation of an American Embassy. Undaunted is a story that will make you think, cheer, cry and reflect upon your own life. In the end, Chris lives by the most important mantra of them all: A warrior never leaves anyone behind on the battlefield, including himself. Advance Praise for Undaunted: "Real and raw, just like the man and his band of SEAL brothers who forged him. Heben is no Angel (by his own admission)--he is a warrior and a Patriot that will not quit. A must read!" -- Scott McEwen, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of American Sniper and national bestseller Sniper Elite novel series. "Chris Heben has lived one hell of a life, and he tells his story with more candor, humor, and gusto than any author I've read in a long time. Plus, I learned how, in a pinch, to cut off a friend's damaged testicle. James Patterson wouldn't know where to begin!" -- Jack Cashill, author and Emmy Award-winning producer
