This was a good book. It increased my compassion and empathy for our citizen soldiers. Vietnam and our current crop of wars leave scars that are with us forever.
Different approach but similar to "The Things They Carried" as both books write about the scars war leaves on our mind and soul - on our very existance.
I did not have a favorite, but I had compassion for each of them.
Wounds of war
Marlantes went through some painful times. I appreciate his sharing them with us.
This is one of the better summaries of where we have been and what to expect in the future. Mauldin has a great way of sharing his knowledge.
This is not a novel. It is a set of conditions that explain where we are now and how we got here plus what to expect in the future. There is a lot of information here that I found fascinating.
No characters, really, except for the author.
No, but it was very interesting.
I especially enjoy the author's recap of other countries and what led them into the financial position they are in today. It made me realize how difficult it will be to extract ourselves from the financial problems already created by our politicians and political advisors.
Investors should "Read this book"
There is a lot of detail here. Unless you are familiar with the subject of investing, you may want to read it multiple times.
The financial advisor. The author seems to have little respect for most financial advisors.
Instructions on personal investing
I liked this book. It has a lot of good down to earth advice for investors.
No. The book was OK, but I only got about an hour into it before my ipod froze. The last time this happened, Audible was fair, but it took me a long time to resolve and I did not get to finish the book anyway because they had to request an uncorrupted copy. That takes several weeks.. Rather than go through the hassle of that, I just stopped reading and discarded the book.

This is one of the better books about an American president. At times it tends to drag because the author goes into so much detail, but I had trouble putting it down, even though I was not a Johnson fan.
LBJ. Now I appreciate his trials and tribulations.
Johnson's actions after the assassination of Kennedy were amazingly crafted.
The same as the book title.
Interesting but not enough to keep you from setting down the book half way through.
Average to middlin'
Not many surprises here. It kind of let me down after hearing the author on TV. I had hoped for a more interesting narrative.
