I was impressed with each of the instances of pain, torture and disappointment detailed in this book. It is truly an inspiration to hear this account. The men and women who got us through that terrible war have some outstanding stories. This is one of the best. You are mad at the short-sighted people who equipped the survival kits in the early bombers (what were they thinking?) and then it only gets worse. But he keeps on keeping on. Worth every minute you spend with this book.
Starts with a different twist on the illegal immigration issue and then develops from there. Well read, intense drama. I recommend this to anyone.j
Like most followers of Martin I waited impatiently for the next installment. It was not up to the standard of previous books in the series in my opinion. The magic has now been broken.
Mr Bradley has some interesting ideas and critiques. The problem comes when he resorts to his own sound bite Bush bashing. It took the book down one star. Had he stuck to expressing where we should go and how to get there it could have been a positive and worthwhile book. As it is, he clouds the direction we should take with old school bashing. He is quick to criticize all Republicans and slow to acknowledge failures of Democrats. I think he has some great ideas that deserve consideration. I also believe it is time for competing ideas to be heard, not shouted down or their proponents demonized. How do we rally the country to do that? I want all the ideas out there to stand and fall on their merits and our leaders to lead and not be led by the polls. That is why I read the book and why others should also.
I liked it so much I bought two copies of the book to pass on to friends and family. This is one of the best books I have ever listened to. I will listen again just to try to remember more of the facts in it. If nothing else it will make you a delight at a cocktail party with all of the information you get from the book.
