    Decision Points is the extraordinary memoir of America's 43rd president. Shattering the conventions of political autobiography, George W. Bush offers a strikingly candid journey through the defining decisions of his life.

    Dave says: "Not a bad choice"
    "Too much fluff"
    Overall

    I voted for W twice. I thought he had a pretty rough time in office, very challenging compared to other presidents. He failed us on a few fronts, and he succeeded on a few. Overall, this book doesnt really change anything, or reveal any truths, its just good ole W talking himself up. I think this book is a decent history lesson, but overall it really has nothing more to offer. During the book, I really started to like W more than I remembered, but then I saw some footage of some interviews and comments from his presidency, and realized this book was mostly fluff.

    This explosive novel of the drug trade takes you deep inside a world riddled with corruption, betrayal, and bloody revenge. From the streets of New York City to Mexico City and Tijuana to the jungles of Central America, this is the war on drugs like you've never seen it.

    Leslie says: "Amazing Novel, Excellent Narration"
    "Too long of a story"
    Overall

    The book has its moments, its not the worst book I have listened to, but its just the story takes place over a very long length of time, and there are a lot of characters and plots. I listened to it on vacation, so it was pretty easy to listen to while lounging poolside but I cant recommend this to most readers.

    For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

    Timothy says: "One of the Best Stories I've Ever Heard"
    "Another good book in the series"
    Overall

    This book was just like the rest, it had all the elements of the series and I enjoyed it. If you are a fan of the series you will enjoy it.

    Thou shalt not negotiate with terrorists. The president of the United States has broken the nation's number-one commandment, and by doing so has put himself in the crosshairs of America's number-one counter-terrorism operative, Scot Harvath.

    Doug Williams says: "Fast Paced, Keeps you engaged"
    "Good Read"
    Overall

    This was a good read. It was not a book that really stands out, but it is just another good book in the series.

    A twisted tale of murder in the world of big-stakes bass fishing tournaments. Filled with ex-wives, evangelists, and an armed pit-bull, this is a story that could only be concocted by Carl Hiaasen, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, New York Times best-selling author, and czar of Florida noir fiction.

    David says: "First For Me"
    "Just Ok"
    Overall

    Skin Tight was my first Hiassen novel and it was absolutely fantastic. This one was very much less fantastic. Its a decent read but not Skin Tight.
