    Dubbed by Barron's as "The Shadow CIA", Stratfor, George Friedman's global intelligence company, has provided analysis to Fortune 500 companies, news outlets, and even the U.S. government. Now Friedman delivers the geopolitical story that the mainstream media has been unable to uncover, the startling truth behind America's foreign policy and war effort in Afghanistan, Iraq, and beyond.

    David says: "The Best"
    "Must Read..."

    One of the best I have read on our "New War" of the 21st Century.

    Hundreds of books have been written about the financial crisis that engulfed the world after Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. But what if the bigger financial crisis is ahead of us, not behind us?As John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper deftly illustrate in this controversial audio book, the crisis was more than a half-century in the making. The Great Financial Crisis, however, was merely Act I.

    Lloyd says: "The Best Explanation of what's Happening Now"
    "Most Important Book I Have Read In 30 Years"
    Overall

    This book is without question one of the most important books I have ever read.
    If you vote, care about the future value of your savings/investments, and/or
    care about the economic future of your children & grandchildren, read it.
    Then, if you agree with me about its value, send it to your Federal
    Representatives. It is a fascinating "world tour" of our Macro Economic
    future, is easy to read and understand, written for a broad audience.

  • The West's Last Chance: Will We Win the Clash of Civilizations?

    The West, says author Tony Blankley in this shocking book, is down to its last chance. Within our lifetimes, Europe could become Eurabia, a continent overwhelmed by militant Islam that poses a greater threat to the United States than even Nazi Germany did. In The West's Last Chance, Blankley shows how that could happen and how we can prevent it.

    Scott R. Shelhamer says: "Read this book"
    "Must Read"
    Overall

    A must read if one is trying to understand the clash of cultures going on...

    When scholars write the history of the world 20 years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing?

    The Cell provides the first complete treatment to piece together what led to the events of 9/11, ultimately delivering the disturbing answer to the question: why, with all the information the intelligence community had, was no one able to stop the September 11 attacks? It also includes a first-person account of John Miller's face-to-face meeting with Osama bin Laden.

    Richard says: "What led up to 9/11?"
    "Very good review background behind 911"

    Very well done, helps one understand how we did not stop 911

    In a cloak-and-dagger story of spies, saboteurs, and secret agents, Kinzer reveals the involvement of Eisenhower, Churchill, Kermit Roosevelt, and the CIA in Operation Ajax, which restored Mohammad Reza Shah to power. Reza imposed a tyranny that ultimately sparked the Islamic Revolution of 1979 which, in turn, inspired fundamentalists throughout the Muslim world, including the Taliban and terrorists who thrived under its protection.

    Great book....
