Really enjoyed this, if you like the movie, you should listen to this book to get the real story.
Anyone who is interested in capitalism should read this great book. The voices are better than I could have imagined. Especially for Barney Frank.
This is Charles Koch's book. What more do you need to know? If you're in the world of business management and you don't immediately have a need to read the book based on the author, you may be in the wrong industry.
Fantastic book, short and to the point. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in dynamic management skills.
I have read just about every book there is to read on this subject, and am an Iranian myself. I appreciate this book and the direction from which it is written, however I would have preferred it without the political slant.
It's very clear that the author has a dislike for Bush 43, and that gets in the way of the content of the book. It's unfortunate that such an in depth book is hindered by political views.
The authors anti-Bush rhetoric isn't the only negative. The author also goes on to blame Iran's problems on everyone but Iran. He's sympathetic to the jurisprudence in Iran, and makes the case that the rest of the world hasn't tried to negotiate or engage them, which is false.
A much better, less politically skewed work, is Amir Taheri's The Persian Night, also available here on Audible.
Overall a pretty good book, but could have been probably half the length. I liked it, but I think it rambled on a bit.
Not this version. There were so many times when you could hear whispering in the background and voice of the narrator cutting off.
The story itself, it's a classic.
See my above comments.
Wish others would read it.
The author could have stuck to the facts and the story, instead of dedicating nearly the entire book to promoting his pro-Obama agenda.
I never write bad reviews on here, it's pretty rare, so you know it's bad.
No, other authors in this genre don't write a book in the hopes of getting their candidate elected. Most are unbiased and care about the "facts."
No, he was quiet...unless the preview shows better.
Probably 80% of it. Nearly the entire book is a "rah rah Obama!" pep rally.
I was really really disappointed as Mark Bowden's book on the Mogadishu incident was so much better. I've known that Mark Bowden is clearly a Democrat, and that's fine, but wow, this book is just sad. I can't recommend it.
If you are interested in Middle Eastern history as it pertains to terrorism, then this is your main read. This is the book by which all others in this genre should be compared.
I loved the narrator of this audio book. I highly recommend it, especially for anyone who is interested in the psychology of man.
This is by far the magnum opus of terrorism history books. You can't get any more direct than from the man who ran the Counter-Terrorism Center for the CIA. Most of the books I read (or listen to) are pretty good. But this book is great, in fact, it's perfect. I was very sad to hear it end.
It's because of men like Jose Rodriguez, that I am able to sit inside the US and write this review. Thank you to such a great American hero.
In addition to this book, I highly recommend Marc Thiessen's Courting Disaster book.
