This book was ok. It went pretty much of what I thought it might. The author tells you alot of what the Secret Service Staff go though and are required to endure.
Yes, in a second! I loved this book. Dr. Meeker really pours her heart and soul into this book. It is very well thought out, very well written, and hit's home very well.
The fact that Dr. Meeker herself is a parent, a daughter, a doctor, and explained so many scenario's that us Dad's go through and gives such profound advice. And not just from an academic point of view. Dr. Meeker uses academic's, experience in real life and also experience from her Medical practice.
Not yet, no.
I would have to say it confirmed what I believe mostly. Always put God first, then family, and to always listen and stay engaged with your children.
Narrator was fine, it was the content that sucked!
Just too much to list.
When I bought this book I was expecting so much more than just someone whinning about America GIVING food and money to a Country much older than America and should be much much more established. America has given Billions of dollars in aid to Africa and now according to this author they(Africa) want's to DICTATE to those countries giving it aid how and what to give? Are you kidding me! Yes we should teach the less fortunate how to fish instead of just giving them the fish, but no way in heck do you have the right to tell someone or a country how and what to GIVE you. What kinda of a "special" moron are you? Geez, then to re-patriot these folks to America, WHY in the sam hill would we do that? I/We fought for what America is today and now you just want to give it away? Like heck! Author is just TOTALLY clueless to the WORLD!
I used to listen to Kiss along time ago. Over the years I've always keep them within ear shot but never really a hard core fan. This book was awesome in explaining the band's trials and tribulations. I thought it was very respectful to all the band members and Paul doesn't brag on himself, in fact he really strived to create just the ultimate band.
The common theme of just trying to make good music and be a complete band.
For there to be ANY truth to this book AT ALL! The author has NEVER served in ANY branch of the military, has never been deployed, nothing. Yet he tries to speak as an authority of how other countries view us. PLEASE! I was there, I fought in Desert Storm, and the thousands of Iraq's we took as prisoners, the Saudi's, the Kwaitie's, and the many others I saw were scared to death of us. Physically we American's stand taller than 99% of the people from that region, militarily wise we train better than any of the other countries that I served with which include the British Desert Rats, the French, the Saudi's, and on and on. This junk of the Saudi's think American's are a "weak" fighting force is just plain absurd! When I looked into the Saudi's eye's before the war all I saw was fear. I could go on and on, because I WAS THERE unlike the author.
I really thought this book was going to be factual and speak to the little skirmishes that happen under the radar. Nope, the author decided to speak about the Gulf War's, what caused the Afghanistan war(like he would know). And it really irked me when he spoke about Generals as if they were stupid. Dude if you know so much enlist and show them how it's done. You'd never make it out of basic.
Geez, who cares, this book was so fiction it wasn't funny.
Yes, can I get my credit back to purchase another book? And can I rate this book any lower than 1 star?
The underlining chivalry of the two soldiers. Being a former US Soldier stationed in Germany I totally understood what the author was talking about. In fact I had the wonderful opportunity while in Germany to train with the Germany Army and I was awarded a German Shootsner(bronze). What an awesome experience and the German's were wonderful! Very respectful to me an American, treated me like royalty.
To many to list just one. There were two moments that will just grab you specifically. First when the two pilots first meet. And second, was when they meet after the war.
Charlie was, just because of his sense of loyalty to his men. Just an incredible man.
Just to many to name just one.
Yes, absolutely! This is a must read for any American. This exemplifies what it has taken to remain a free country. One must always remember, Hitler was trying his best to strike America. Since WWII we have continued to have wars, the World Trade Centers have been brought down(albeit by cowards). America can never rest, we ARE the shinning light of the world. It is well documented throughout history.
I highly recommend this book. I never knew Mr. Rumsfeld was educated at Princeton. The Democrat's surely won't tell you this fact. For all the criticizime that President Bush and Mr. Rumsfeld took and still take, I am amazed of how much of their policies are still in placed today.....
Audible, I want a credit for this terrible book. In the book he's reading all these supposedly published documents but he doesn't back up anything with released fact. He just leaves everything hanging like an inuindo just trying to get you to think devisously instead of doing some basic fact checking. This book has been such an utter waste of time and material. Do yourself a favor and pick a different book, Geez a former Navy Seal should have done better than this piece of junk!
This was a very good read. The author explained alot of what it takes to be a sniper. And the fact of how snipers save lives more than what they take. I really recommend this book.
What a terrible book. Audible is there anyway I can bet my money back. I hated this book. I thought the author did a great job, it was the subject matter that was just terrible!
