    Dubbed by Barron's as "The Shadow CIA", Stratfor, George Friedman's global intelligence company, has provided analysis to Fortune 500 companies, news outlets, and even the U.S. government. Now Friedman delivers the geopolitical story that the mainstream media has been unable to uncover, the startling truth behind America's foreign policy and war effort in Afghanistan, Iraq, and beyond.

    "This should be listed under fiction"
    Overall

    This is one of the most poorly written fact based books I have ever read. The author continually jumps from coming to a fact based answer to jumping from solid facts to his beliefs and thoughts on what he says people thought and why they took action. George packs the facts and his ideas so close together that it is sometimes difficult to separate them. He never makes the clear separation and makes it more of a historical fiction as if he is the main character, present and around for every major incident. I do not recommend this book to anyone who like scholastic material. If you like to shake your head continually and to laugh at his pathetic attempts at making connection, then this book is for you. Enjoy!

    The zombie plague unleashes its horrors on the suburbs of Atlanta without warning, pitting the living against the dead. Caught in the mass exodus, Lilly Caul struggles to survive in a series of ragtag encampments and improvised shelters. But the Walkers are multiplying. Dogged by their feral hunger for flesh and crippled by fear, Lilly relies on the protection of good Samaritans by seeking refuge in a walled-in town once known as Woodbury, Georgia. But Lilly begins to suspect that all is not as it seems....

    What disappointed you about The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury?

    Poorly written storyline that used an absurd amount of adjectives and adverbs creating a much longer story than necessary. Not only did it feel long but it also did not develop the characters properly leading to large leaps in relationships that were unbelievable.


    Has The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has not turned me off from this series because I am addicted to the "The Walking Dead" series as a whole, but I will admit to reading this book as a guilty pleasure and feel a little ashamed.


    Any additional comments?

    Outstanding performance by Fred Berman. With out his strong performance I would not have made it through this book.
