    Just days before Chad Williams was scheduled to report for basic training at the Great Lakes naval base, he turned on the television and was greeted with the horrifying image of his mentor and training partner, US Navy SEAL Scott Helvenston, being brutally murdered in a premeditated ambush on the streets of Fallujah, Iraq. Steeled in his resolve, Chad committed himself to completing the US military’s most difficult training to become a Navy SEAL - and avenge his friend’s death.

    Story

    Chad Williams boldly holds nothing back... except for the expletives of his instructors, fellow candidates and colleagues in the Seals.

    This story is an exceptional witness of living as a Christian in a very tough environment. I found the story very encouraging and recommend reading this if you have any testosterone flowing through your veins.

    Listen to this book and send your nonverbal intelligence soaring. Joe Navarro, a former FBI counterintelligence officer and a recognized expert on nonverbal behavior, explains how to "speed-read" people: decode sentiments and behaviors, avoid hidden pitfalls, and look for deceptive behaviors. You'll also learn how your body language can influence what your boss, family, friends, and strangers think of you.

    Story

    This serves as a great introductory guide to body language. One can tell that Mr Navarro is an expert is his field and this is a solid introduction.

    It is also evident that the author has a lot more knowledge in this field and perhaps he will follow this up some more detailed stories about his experiences. There are several appetite whetting stories that he glosses over in this book that could make great follow-ups.

    As the United States marks the 150th anniversary of our defining national drama, 1861 presents a gripping and original account of how the Civil War began. 1861 is an epic of courage and heroism beyond the battlefields. Early in that fateful year, a second American revolution unfolded, inspiring a new generation to reject their parents' faith in compromise and appeasement, to do the unthinkable in the name of an ideal.

    James says: "Fascinating."
    "Too much detail dilutes the story"

    Story

    It is easy to get lost in the detail that the author gives as he looks at how the American Civil War started. This is not a good 'first read' for readers who want to gain a broad understanding of the American Civil War.
    If you are a serious Civil War aficionado and have already read widely on this subject then you will probably enjoy this book.

    In 1998, three Harvard Business School graduates - two men and one woman - turned down six-figure salaries at big corporations, bet on themselves, and launched their own new companies. By their 10-year reunion, their audacity had paid huge dividends. They'd made many millions of dollars, created hundreds of jobs and left their mark on the world. The Intelligent Entrepreneur tells the compelling and instructive story of how these three young founders did it.

    Mark C Walker says: "Disappointing"

    Something scary is happening to boys today. From kindergarten to college, they are less resilient and less ambitious than they were a mere 20 years ago. Fully one-third of men ages 22 to 34 are still living at home with their parents, about a 100 percent increase in the past 20 years. Boys nationwide are increasingly dropping out of school; fewer are going to college. Family physician and research psychologist Dr. Leonard Sax presents practical solutions.

    Kirt says: "Startling, well-researched view..."
    "Fascinating insight about "boys who should be men""

    Story

    This is a fascinating insight into the "boys who should be men" (failure to launch) phenomenon. Dr Sax presents a truck load of statistics and data to support his real-world experience with the boys of today. I found the book immensely useful in understanding the drifting generation of underachieving, under-motivated men in our society. I think for any parent of boys this is a "must read". Throughout the book, Dr Sax points out the problems and gives corrective action recommendations, which I think are poignant, savvy and useful for educators and parents alike.
