I'd rate it as pretty good to fair. The book needs a bit more substance to it, but entertaining to say the least. Could have had more details.
Did a great job with the reading, and I listen to these audiobooks all of the time and have become quite annoyed with anyone that doesn't read them to well.
Great stuff once again. Will change your life! Started reading his books and have slowly improved my financial life. Am on the right course thanks to Mr. Kiyosaki.
Just listen to it, period.
Great stories, but a slight twist from what Im used to in that it talked more about feelings and emotions. Im more interested in the actual events, tactics, and the experiences; but this book seemed to branch into the "how does that make you feel?" touchy side of being a sniper. Different.
The main takeaway from the book was that it attempted to pull the emotional effects their stories, again, just different
Absolutely despised the way this book was read. I could go on and on, but the narrator needs to really improve on her performance. For example: 1. The volume changes as you speak into the microphone and then away from the microphone. It is as if the narrator was reading a book in her lap, and looked down at it to read, and then speak back and forth to the microphone. So the volume just went up and down, up and down. Horrible!!!
2. Her voice and inflections on the story didn't match the content. For example, at the end of the sentence her voice went up when she said "...he said." But it sounds like she was about to start the sentence with those words "He said..." Confusing!
3. Please don't ever try to attempt a New England accent; that is a poor attempt. Really, all the accents attempted were just plain horrible
4. Just skip the attempts at a regional accent and just read it plainly next time. It's the content we are after, not making it into some kind of a theatrical play. I would have rather heard the Monty Python's old British ladies reading this book!
Content was fair to good; the main narrator ruined it though
How much the completion of this railroad was at the hands of the Chinese. They worked very hard, did the jobs nobody else did, and found respect. They earned it not only from their labor, but how they managed themselves and their camps. They ate healthy foods, were not drunks like the others, and did their work. Great examples to us all!
The harsh treatment of the Chinese and how they handled themselves; who in return earned the respect of everyone else by the examples they lived.
