    High above the planet Harmony, the Oversoul watches. Its task, programmed so many millennia ago, is to guard the human settlement on this planet, to protect this fragile remnant of Earth from all threats...to protect them, most of all, from themselves.

    "Good read... but"
    Overall

    The made up names drive me a little nuts... Why not call Napha, Nephi, then call his brothers Laman and Lemual, dad Lehi, little bro Sam, etc. Can't say the plot is as original as most of Orson's works. But, I liked it and will move on to the next one.

    In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world’s. Governments such as China and a newly-robust Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and Islam continues its dangerous rise. Drawing on history for lessons on how great powers collapse, Romney shows how and why our national advantages have eroded.

    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    If you believe in self-sufficiency, independence, accountability, a strong defense, a balanced budget and in keeping your rights, freedom and money and liked Atlas Shrugged, then you will enjoy this read. Yes, its academic, but its understandable and his points are well documented and true. Its a book for the productive citizens of America. If your a moocher or a looter... don't bother to read it, it will just confuse you.

    Based on hundreds of interviews with the people who lived the story, Game Change is a reportorial tour de force that reads like a fast-paced novel. Character driven and dialogue rich, replete with extravagantly detailed scenes, this is the occasion-ally shocking, often hilarious, ultimately definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime.

    "A must read.... however, be careful"
    Overall

    Its hard to make a pancake so flat that it only has one side but the authors seem to have done it. I loved their research and attention to detail and for giving us such an intimate glimpse into the private lives and character of some modern high profile politicians. I just find it a little hard to believe that all the politicians they researched were so flawed, profane, lacking basic civility or so stupid and incompetent except for one... "The Anointed One"(TAO). They accurately criticize the free ride the press gave TAO in the campaign and then do the exact same thing in their book. Is America this hard up for leaders that there was only one choice for a moral, competent person without baggage last time around? Where are the modern Washingtons, Lincolns, Jeffersons, Adams, or my personal modern favorite, Truman? What does it say about the moral strength of a democracy that can't produce decent, competent leaders? The book made me feel sad for a country that I love that seems to have lost it's moral compass. I think its a must read but I don't believe the authors were honest in there portrayal of TAO... I hope I'm wrong and he really is that good and perfect of a person as the book says he and his family are. Heaven knows that's what we need in the White House.
