Scars and Stripes: An Unapologetically American Story of Fighting the Taliban, Ufc Warriors, and Myself (Compact Disc)
By anyone's standards, Tim Kennedy is a badass. Green Beret, Sniper, MMA fighter, Cop, and Fireman, Tim has already lived more life than most people twice his age. Scars and Stripes is his autobiography. I started reading it with the impression that it would be another "look at how great I am" story, but was pleasantly surprised to find out it was not. Kennedy lays it all out there. Yes, he did some remarkably selfless things, but he also tells us about his failings. As he puts it -- "sometimes I was the asshole." In spite of that, this painfully honest memoir is inspirational.— Bill
From decorated Green Beret sniper, UFC headliner, and all around badass, Tim Kennedy, a rollicking, inspirational memoir offering lessons in how to embrace failure and weather storms, in order to unlock the strongest version of yourself. Tim Kennedy has a problem; he only feels alive right before he's about to die. Kennedy, a Green Beret, decorated Army sniper, and UFC headliner, has tackled a bull with his bare hands, jumped out of airplanes, dove to the depths of the ocean, and traveled the world hunting poachers, human traffickers, and the Taliban. But he's also the same man who got kicked out of the police department, fire department, and as an EMT, before getting two women pregnant four days apart, and finally, been beaten up by his Special Forces colleagues for, quite simply, being a selfish asshole. In Scars and Stripes, Kennedy describes how these failures shaped him into the successful businessman and devoted husband and father he is today. Through unbelievably vivid, wild anecdotes Kennedy reveals all the dumb, violent, embarrassing, and undeniably heroic things he's done in his life, including multiple combat missions in Afghanistan, building a school in Texas for elementary kids, and creating two-multimillion-dollar businesses. You will learn that failure isn't the end--rather it's the first step towards unearthing the best version of yourself and finding success, no matter how overwhelming the setbacks may feel.
We will be open on Memorial Day from 10 AM until 6 PM.
