    On March 23, 2003, Private First Class Jessica Lynch was crossing the Iraqi desert with the 507th Maintenance Company when the convoy she was traveling in was ambushed, caught in enemy crossfire. All four soldiers traveling with her died in the attack. Lynch was taken prisoner and held captive in an Iraqi hospital for nine days. Her rescue galvanized the nation; she became a symbol of victory, of innocence and courage, of heroism; and then, just as quickly, of deceit and manipulation.

    "Inspirational?"
    Overall

    Exactly what is inspirational in retelling of an event where controversy lurks in the shadows of the forgotten details? Maybe it's that we are supposed to be inspired by the media's packaging of the event? What are we to think of the one solider who held the enemy at bay so she might survive who did not even make it as a footnote to the event. My eyes tear for the men and women who have fallen in Jessica's shadow.

  • Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror

    The real war on terror has happened largely behind closed doors, run by the White House, drawing on secret intelligence and operations around the world. There is no man who knows more about it than Richard Clarke, the former Counterterrorism Czar for both George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, the man who has led our efforts against al Qaeda and all other terrorist enemies for years.

    Overall



    Several of the reviews are not so much about the message of the book as much as they are personal attacks on the author. At this writing the hearings on 9-11 are still in process and much of the events that led to the tragedy have yet to be explored. Clarke?s book is a small flashlight that guides us down a dark path that many prefer not to traverse for fear of finding the truth.

    Save your money if you are convinced that you know the truth. If you have the wisdom to keep an open mind and the discernment to filter personal acrimony, then this is indeed a worthwhile purchase.

  • Rich Dad's Guide to Becoming Rich Without Cutting Up Your Credit Cards

    A popular TV personality often says, "Take your credit cards and cut them into pieces." While that is sound advice for people who are not financially responsible, it is inadequate advice for anyone who wants to become rich or financially free. In other words, just cutting up your credit cards will not make you rich. What does make you rich is financial education...unfortunately a type of education we do not receive in school.

    Overall

    As mentioned in another review much of the material covered in this audio book is also covered in Robert T. Kiyosaki's "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" and "Rich Dad's Cashflow Quadrant." The author even states as much several times and suggest that the listener listen to those audio books for elaboration on the points being made.

    If you have listened to the author's other books and have made the shift to thinking like Rich Dad, then there is no earthly reason for you to listen to this book. If you happen to be one of the many who are in the process of re-educating your mindset to think like Rich Dad, then I suggest you consider this volume.
