A simple car accident changed the path of six-year-old Sean Rogers’s life forever. His single mother checked into the hospital as a vibrant young woman and checked out as a full-blown opioid addict. From that day forward, Sean’s life became a silent nightmare of abuse, neglect, chronic hunger, and slow, helpless withdrawal from everything and everyone he loved.

In Rising Above, Green Beret Sean Rogers chronicles the toughest battle of his life: the long, painful fight to confront his darkest fears and reclaim his life. After struggling as a young man to accept the raw trauma of his past, he eventually learned to understand and embrace it, ultimately using it to become an elite Special Forces operator.

Through this profoundly honest and inspiring memoir, Rogers explores what it means to make the pain of your past work for you, showing you how to harness the truth of your own reality and take control of your destiny.

I liked the story but I didn’t appreciate all the swearing through out the book. I feel like it could’ve been more meaningful using different literature.

A lesson in vulnerability and strength

What a refreshing and honest example of how to become a better person. To allow the world to glimpse into Sean’s most vulnerable moments in an earnest effort to better others is extraordinary.

I’m a Veteran and Retiring Peace Officer and I held on to my PTS byway of coping mechanisms. The book encapsulates simple but key variables that further validates some of the things I’ve seen and experienced. Thank You

Makes total sense

Crazy to read about Bucks childhood and the horrors he and his brother experienced, but then also have him note that it can always be worse. Shows a true judge of character and a beast mentality.
