  • True at First Light: A Fictional Memoir

    Story

    A blend of autobiography and fiction, the book opens on the day his close friend, Pop, a celebrated hunter, leaves Ernest in charge of the safari camp and news arrives of a potential attack from a hostile tribe. Drama continues to build as his wife, Mary, pursues the great black-maned lion that has become her obsession. Spicing his depictions of human longings with sharp humor, Hemingway captures the excitement of big-game hunting and the unparalleled beauty of the scenery.

    "Boring"
    Overall

    I so wanted to enjoy this book. Hemingway's works are suppose to be classics. This is my second book by this auther. The first "Old Man and the Sea" was just barely tolerable. This one was just plain boring. I'm an outdoorsman and wanted to feel the excitment of Africa and the hunt. Sorry this book doesn't do it for me.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    I have read all the Mitch Rapp books and this one did not disappoint. Another great story from Vince Flynn and another great performance by George Guidall. If you like action, trauma and intrigue you will love this book. I highly recommend the whole series.

    The most unlikely terrorist enemy of all now holds a knife against the country’s throat. With both diplomatic and conventional military options swept from the table, the president calls upon Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath to disable a brilliantly orchestrated conspiracy intended to bring the United States to its knees. Teamed with beautiful Russian Intelligence agent Alexandra Ivanova and a highly trained CIA paramilitary detachment, Harvath embarks on an adrenaline-fueled search that spans the world.

    Story

    A difficult and frustrating listen. I listened to the original You on a Diet years ago and figured this would be an updated version with some extras, eureka, not even close. First off I had forgotten how annoying Dr. Roisen’s voice can be and the corniness of his attempts at humor made the listen even worse. I was so relieved when the girl (who ever she is) started doing the majority of the reading. I doubt I could have finished this book if I had to listen to Dr. Roisen read any more than he did.
    The first half of the book had some good information, much like the original. The second half was a total waste of my time. I’m not obese, nor am I an emotional train wreck trying to deal with an overload of stress by eating myself to death. If you fit this description, than this book is for you. I’m a relatively healthy 62 year old carrying an extra 10 -20 pounds that’s looking for a healthy way to shed a few pounds and improve my health. For that reason the whole second half of this book was a waste of my time

    In Taylor Anderson's acclaimed Destroyermen series, a parallel universe adds an extraordinary layer to the drama of World War II. Now, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Reddy, the crew of the USS Walker, and their allies battle an ever-growing host of enemies across the globe in a desperate battle for freedom.

    Story

    This series has become my all-time favorite. It’s packed with action and adventure, romance, suspense and great characters. I’m a stickler for details and Anderson makes sure that everything that happens has a practical and logical explanation. My wife thinks some of Dufris narration gets kind of corny but having listened to him narrate all of the books, the voices and accents he uses for the different characters just seem normal to me. I highly recommend this series of books.

  • The Unstoppable Golfer: Trusting Your Mind & Your Short Game to Achieve Greatness

    It is no secret that more than two-thirds of the shots a golfer makes are shorts ones: putts, chips, and pitches. Long drives may garner applause, but whether a golfer wants to win the Masters or just five bucks from a friend on Saturday morning, it’s the little shots that make the difference. In The Unstoppable Golfer, Dr. Bob Rotella takes the same wisdom and experience that have worked for clients like Davis Love III and David Toms to help you master this special art of short shots and avoid all the frustration out of this increasingly challenging element of the game.

    If this is your first Bob Rotella book I think you will find it informative, motivational and an enjoyable read. I have read 2 or 3 of his previous books and found this one to have the exact same information only with some updated examples and a new title.

    If you've read one you have read them all, but for a first timer wanting to improve your mental golf game, I would recommend it.

  • The Big Miss: My Years Coaching Tiger Woods

    The Big Miss is Hank Haney's candid and surprisingly insightful account of his tumultuous six-year journey with Tiger Woods, during which the supremely gifted golfer collected six major championships and rewrote golf history. Hank was one of the very few people allowed behind the curtain. He was with Tiger 110 days a year, spoke to him over 200 days a year, and stayed at his home up to 30 days a year, observing him in nearly every circumstance....

    Story

    I thought the book is well written, very informative on both Tiger the golfer and as a person and golf in general. I also think Hank did an excellent job of narrating his book. I had two main reasons for reading the book; first for my interest in Hank Haney’s golf training methods and then to find out what all the controversy was about.
    Though it’s not being advertised as a golf instructional book, I found it to be very insightful into the mental side of the game, much of which the average golfer can put to use.
    As for the controversy, I found nothing in the book about Tiger, the person, to be any big secret to anyone that follows golf. Hank states numerous times in the book how much he respects Tiger’s golf abilities and thanks him many times for the opportunity to coach him. I thought the book was written from a coach’s perspective, with appropriate observations on Tiger reactions on what Hank was trying to teach him, nothing more, nothing less. I think it’s a great book about golf, period.
