    The Strategic Thinking Trilogy contains the best worldwide books on strategy: A Book of 5 Rings by Mushashi, The Art of War by Sun Tzu, The Prince by Machiavelli and an introduction/summary of On War by Von Clausevitz. A must listen for all listeners interested in history, culture, military subjects, business strategy, and strategy in general.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Strategic Thinking Trilogy to be better than the print version?

    The three books in one listen was a good deal. I enjoyed 'The Prince' the most. The fensing book "5 Rings" was direct and to the point and written from the viewpoint of author feeling he is the very best at what he does. The "Art of War" left me wanting more in the sense, so many people had told me it was such a great book, I was thinking I would enjoy it more, but I did not.

    Jack, a sometimes humorous, sometimes philosophical ex-special operations pilot and soldier is one of the few left to struggle through the desolation left in the aftermath; seeking to survive as a new ferocious species emerges from the rubble, hungry and unrelenting. Will his special forces training be enough? Will he be able to keep his children safe and guide the few survivors through perils that now roam the world they once knew? Or will the hordes that now own the night prevail....

    Have you listened to any of Mark Gagliardi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I listened to this book due to him co authoring with Mark Tufo.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed his military background, and opening setting at Ft Lewis area, which is where I was in the military. His book is paced well, and keeps you interested. I liked how he would incorporate news flashes while you were reading the book.

    In Dream Team, acclaimed sports journalist Jack McCallum delivers the untold story of the greatest team ever assembled: the 1992 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team that captivated the world, kindled the hoop dreams of countless children around the planet, and remade the NBA into a global sensation. As a senior staff writer for Sports Illustrated, McCallum enjoyed a courtside seat for the most exciting basketball spectacle on earth, covering the Dream Team from its inception to the gold medal ceremony in Barcelona.

    Where does Dream Team rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is not my normal reads. I'm normally reading zombie killer books. I read this due to my enjoying the Bulls, rule the 90's in basketball. It gave me insights to that wonderful summer and all the people behind the and in front of the action.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dream Team?

    Listening to the action of the 'Greatest game which no one saw'. The break down of how much Jordon wanted to win and what he did to do it. I knew he was great, but this book put new light on it for me.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Sir Charles doing anything with MJ, golf, under the rim...
