    The book focuses on four naval commanders, two American, two Japanese, whose lives collided at the Battle of Leyte Gulf in October 1944 - a clash involving more ships (almost 300), more men (nearly 200,000) and covering a larger area (more than 100 thousand square miles, roughly the size of the British Isles) than any naval battle in recorded history.

    The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.

    When the U.S. secretary of state's plane crashes while bringing her to a summit meeting in Libya, the CIA, distrusting the Libyans, hires Juan Cabrillo to search for her, and their misgivings are well founded. The crew locates the plane, but the secretary of state has vanished. It turns out Libya's new foreign minister has other plans for the conference, plans that Cabrillo cannot let happen.

    Time is running out for Jolene. She's trapped by a madman, held captive, naked, waiting only for her worst nightmares to become reality. Her captor will keep her alive for 28 days, hidden in an underwater city 400 feet below the surface. Then she will die horribly, just like the others. Jolene's only hope is Richard Dahlgren, a private underwater crime scene investigator. He has until the next full moon before Jolene becomes just another hideous trophy in the killer's surreal underwater lair.

    One of the best novels I have ever read. I usually don't write reviews, however this is a must read. Men may enjoy better than women but I think there is still enjoyment for both. This is as good or better than The Scare Crow.

    The Last Stand of Fox Company is a fast-paced and gripping account of heroism and self-sacrifice in the face of impossible odds. The authors have conducted dozens of firsthand interviews with the battle's survivors, and they narrate the story with the immediacy of such classic accounts of single battles as Guadalcanal Diary, Pork Chop Hill, and Black Hawk Down.

    Stephen says: "Outstanding story, poor narration"
    "BEST WAR READ"

    WHEN YOU READ OR LISTEN YOU WILL FIND EXCEPTIONAL,OUR WW2 VETS LIKE ALL VETS NEED MORE PEOPLE TO READ THIS SO WE CAN APPRECIATE THEM MORE. I THINK THIS SHOULD BE A MUST READ. THIS IS NO RAMBO CHEESE,THESE GUYS ARE THE REAL THING. BEST WAR BOOK I HAVE EVER READ, EVEN THE STRATAGY IS FASINATING.

    Oliver Stone and the Camel Club are back in their most dangerous adventure yet, a war on two fronts. Casino king Jerry Bagger from The Collectors is hunting Annabelle Conroy, who conned him out of millions. Stone and his colleagues Reuben, Milton, and Caleb marshal all their resources to protect Annabelle. Yet all their skills may not be enough when a deadly new opponent rips off the veneer of Stone's own mysterious past.

    "Murder suspense good and evil"
    Overall

    Absolutly the best novel I have ever read. I highly recommend to all. I think the target market is 25 to 75 year old males but I beleive women will also enjoy. Class all the way. Should be a classic, it really is that good.

    Overall

    The speaker is just barely tollerable to listen to. He gasp for air between sentences which is and only slightly annoying. He mixes politics with a bad example regarding Presidents on such a general level I thought I was listeng to Rush. He compares Regan who in the history of our country got the US into more debt than it has ever had since inception in just his first term. Then during his second term doubled that total in his second term, not to mention ethical concerns. Clinton who with the democratic congress was able to get us out of the depression or recession depending on your economics background and made the US significantly more prosperous than the country has ever been. I order a book hoping it has some knowlege. Everything is basic cookie cutter. Add the inacurate right wing comments. Very annoying.
