Again, the author builds it up, and then lets it slide. It's almost like he got bored and could finish it fast enough so he could move on to his next book.
I loved the entire "Legacy of the Force" series, and Troy Denning's writings in the Star Wars mythos are great.
I am changing my rating from 4 to 5 stars after listening a second time threw. I was not so interested in how black soldiers were treated in the southern USA, but it was and IS reality.
I like the first person accounts this book has to offer. It isn't often you get these perspectives, as the men and women of that generation are dying fast.
I recommend this book for ALL history buffs, Black or White.
I liked the Patton biography as well, and hope the author continues this series with Eisenhower, McArther, and others.
I am not sure why, but when I read this book in college, it was better.
I don't know what it is about this person's voice. They sound like a munchkin from the land of Oz. At first it was rather quaint, but after a half hour, I couldn't take it any more.
This was an inspirational book in a sense. The rescue at the end had me in tears. I had to pull off the road to dry my eyes.
I found this to be as boring as any college calculus text ever was. Maybe that's why I not a great leader.
This book started out fine enough, but peaked 3/4 of the way in and fell off sharply after that.
It isn't often you run across a book or movie that causes you stop and evaluate the way you think about the world. "Atlas Shrugged" is one of those books.
I had heard references to it in the past, but I got around to hearing it just last year, and what a wake up call it was.
