It is a true story. It follows so many different trails, but the author does a wonderful job tying the details together. A random aside in one chapter becomes a key plot element in the next. Very well written. Intensely emotional. And inspiring story of the depths and heights of the human condition.
Definitely a book that will have you glued to every page with excitement, fear, and sadness.
For both fiction and nonfiction fans I highly recommend this book. I read mostly business and Tom Clancy books. My wife reads nora roberts and we both loved this book.
Usually Clancy is very technical. This ok is much more person and character focused make it more appealing to the masses. If you like an action/suspense novel then this is a classic. Won't melt your brain, but will keep you entertained.
Milo minderbinder was the best character. As an absorb businessman he is the perfect commentary on the paradoxes we deal with in D.C. Every day as we create jobs to clean up the messes we make and earn a profit on both ends. This book is so classic and laugh out loud funny. I must say that the cadence of the reading takes some getting used to based on the double antandras and triple negatives and other patterns (e.g. They were good friends and there was oohing Usarian would door him). However, like a Shakepearean play ou get used to it very quicky and then the language is that much more colorful.
Great distinctions in the characters' voices.
Im a big fan of cognitive science having studied it at length in my academic career, but I found Moonwalking With Einstein and Made To Stick more interesting mostly because they approach applicability to skills in the real world. I found this book a little academic and dry
That said, this is a great work and should be read by anyone who is interested in he the brain works, I'd just ranking it lower than others.
Ok. That said its still good. A page turner (figuratively). But not as many exciting twists. Too much stretching of old ideas from his previous books. Go read digital fortress if you haven't already. More original.
Meh. Fun summer read. Lots of better stuff out there. Read all his other stuff before this. Then go read patriot games.
GreT tie in with the old characters. Typical good research on modern tech and warfighter capabilities. Vigilante aspect makes it enjoyable for the average joe.
He did great. Very natural character identification.
Very educational but not boring. The story was engaging without getting fantastic. This is a must read for anyone who is interested in more about the world than the street they live on.
Fantastic research reflected in this book. Interesting insights. Helps you understand much of the dysfunction that exists in Washington. You may not agree with the book, but the discussion is very enlightening and the writing is very good.
If you haven't kept up with the wars in the last 10 years this will be interesting, otherwise this is just a summary of the wars overseas in the last 10 years.
Ppl who can tolerate a terrible narrator
Narrator's inflection is terrible. Made me hate the book.
