Unlike some of the other Audible reviews, I found this book disturbing and well-wort the "read."
This book was a shocking eye-opener focused on this nuclear superpower, gone awry. Personally, I was surprised that the author didn't even address China's nuclear capabilities until the very last chapter, and then as an "elephant in the living room." I'm no political scientist; however, I think every adult in America should read this book! It was mind-numbing to learn just how bad this "pirate nation" really is in every way you can imagine, and several I couldn't. The list of the "Coming China Wars" addressed China's: "weapons of mass-production" (dirt cheap products we ALL buy); pollution levels of global impact; unfair global economic policies linking their money directly to the U.S. dollar; an "oil at ANY cost" policy leading to nuclear proliferation in Iran; a drug & prostitution trade that will likely spawn the world's next largest HIV/AIDS epidemic (surpassing that of Africa!); and so on; and so on. WOW -- I had NO idea!
Overall ... "A must-read for EVERY voting American and beyond
After publishing his best-seller "The End of Faith," Harris received thousands of letters from Christians across the country challenging his viewpoint and admonishing him for not believing in God. This little book (1hr 56min, unabridged) is his courageous rebuttal to a near Christian-majority population. Instead of "lashing out" against his fellow countrymen for their difference of opinion, Harris calmly and in a straight forward manner, questions the very mindset of Christians. Especially intriguing, was the way he walks the Christian reader through a direct comparison of how they undoubtedly feel about the beliefs of Muslims and other religious groups, and then points out how these others "believers" undoubtedly feels exactly the same way about the Christians' beliefs. This is a very fast and easy read, worth the 2 hours.
Overall ... "Highly recommended if your interested in opening your mind to how others see your own beliefs (or lack there of)."
This book was a rare look into the emotions and reasoning of a mother who, defining social & familial norms, choose to walk away from her own children. It does have a heart-wrenching recap of the loss of her youngest daughter; however, this author already published a best-selling book exclusive to this horrible loss ("Hannah's Gift"). What remained, quite frankly was the self-told story of a woman's adultery and (in my opinion) selfish abandonment of her children in order to pursue the "artist" inside her.
Overall ... "interesting perspective, but difficult to look beyond her actions & choices--tough call"
