    For decades they assumed that people who face adversity - a difficult childhood, career turbulence, sudden bouts of bad luck - will succumb to their circumstances. Yet over and over again they found a significant percentage are able to overcome their life circumstances and achieve spectacular success. How is it that individuals who are not “supposed” to succeed manage to overcome the odds? Are there certain traits that such people have in common?

    It will probably take 50 years for the principles to be widely accepted. In the mean time, you can take advantage of the principles outlined in the book, make wise investments in your time and efforts and profit from them.

    As expected this book was entertaining and cost me laugh so hard that had I've been drinking milk I would've been embarrassed. Gratitude and appreciation to the cameo performances from people that have played such an important role in my life as well. Their endorsement speaks well of you as a person. I was able to start and stop the recording and did not miss a thing. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Captain Vince Lombard, G-Marine company commander, is tasked with tracking down a stray ship. The Alliance Military Ship StarFire has gone silent, and previous attempts to locate her have resulted in the loss of more ships. After two previous wars with xenospecies humanity bumped into while expanding into space, no one knows what might be the cause of StarFire's missing in action status.

    Story

    Just enough sci-fi to keep it interesting. More of a book about human relationships lifelong friendships and our justice system. Jason Brenizer did a great job with the reading of the book and much like my favorite books, you shortly forget it's being read by one person.
    I sincerely hope more books like this are available through Audible.com (now Amazon?)

    Captain Eric Weston and his crew encounter horrors, wonders, monsters, and people; all of which will test their resolve, challenge their abilities, and put in sharp relief what is necessary to be a hero. A first-rate military-science-fiction epic that combines old-school space opera and modern storytelling, Into the Black: Odyssey One is a riveting, exhilarating adventure with vivid details, rich mythology, and relentless pacing.

    After saving America from Middle Eastern terrorists, even Mike Harmon and the Keldara could use a vacation. Of course, the Kildar's idea of a vacation includes taking down pirates in the Singapore Straits. But when he finds computer chips designed to run nuclear reactors in the pirate booty, Harmon has a new mission thrust upon him - discover how bottom-feeding thieves got their hands on top-secret technology. The chips are headed for newly democratic Myanmar, a country vital to American interests in the region. Now Harmon finds himself in a desperate race to learn who stole the chips and why.

    Story

    I found myself genuinely interested in the characters and its difficult to believe it was read by one person. Jeremy Arthur did a great job.

    It is an interesting thriller that engages the listener, but is misfiled as a Sci Fi book.
    I am still glad to have purchased the entire series.

    If I ever saw Mountain Tiger Beer I would probably buy a case irrespective of the cost. The author and Narrator did a great job of selling the stuff. Perhaps some vertical marketing opportunities available there.

    Our hero Services targets and Georgia, the state and the country.

    Ark Royal - the Royal Navy’s outdated space carrier - has won a smashing victory against the enigmatic aliens, capturing one of their starships and returning to Earth. Now, Admiral Theodore Smith and his crew are assigned to command a fleet charged with making a deep-penetration raid into alien territory, a fleet made up of carriers from four different nations. But with a crewman who isn't what he seems, untested pilots and international friction - and a new and dangerous alien plan - can Ted and his crew survive their mission?
