    The End of Faith. The God Delusion. God Is Not Great. Letter to a Christian Nation. Best seller lists are filled with doubters. But what happens when you actually doubt your doubts?

    Story

    The author presents the world of Christian faith in a new and fresh way. The book is deep but written in a way that makes the authors message understandable. I will be listening again to review some of the concepts. Timothy Keller make the Christian faith non-threatening without comprising on the message of Christ. I would highly recommend for anyone looking at the Christian faith or those that call the faith their own and want a fresh perspective.

    Story

    While this spy thriller is not as deep or complex as a Clancy story, it is an engaging story with interesting characters. You have to suspend your sense of reality as the main character is a super-human super-spy. There are few unforeseen plot twists which come just in time when the story seems to slow down. The story is violent and at times graphic, not for those who do not like the Clancy or Flynn style of story telling.
    The narrator did a great job and made the story easy to follow. He created many unique voices for the various characters that made me think I was listening to a motion picture sound track instead of an audio book.

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

  • American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer

    J. Robert Oppenheimer was one of the iconic figures of the 20th century, a brilliant physicist who led the effort to build the atomic bomb but later confronted the moral consequences of scientific progress. When he proposed international controls over atomic materials, opposed the development of the hydrogen bomb, and criticized plans for a nuclear war, his ideas were anathema to powerful advocates of a massive nuclear buildup during the anti-Communist hysteria of the early 1950s.

    Story

    The book is filled with information of the fascinating and detailed life of J. Robert Oppenheimer. The book was for the most part balanced. I did find the authors going off on details about supporting character lives that did not seem to tie strongly into Dr. Oppenheimer's life. Overall a long but worthwhile book about a amazing person living in an equally interesting time in world history.

    I did rate the performance a bit lower than I typically do. The reader was very engaging and articulate. My issue was with the audio quality. It would randomly vary for a few sentences as if they were recorded at a separate time or place and then inserted into the audio track. I would go back over the section to make sure it was not my player, but the audio issue would repeat at the exact spot. It is not major, but I seemed to be sensitive to the variations. I would not avoid the book based on this minor issue.

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines.

    This is a well told story of the raid that took out Bin Laden. It all but avoids a political slant. It is a store from the perspective of a Navy Seal that was there. It does bring a new appreciation for the brave men and women that server our country.

    Sure to rank as one of the greatest aviation memoirs ever written, Viper Pilot is an Air Force legend's thrilling eyewitness account of modern air warfare. From 1986 to 2006, Lt. Col. Dan Hampton was a leading member of the Wild Weasels, the elite Air Force fighter squadrons whose mission is recognized as the most dangerous job in modern air combat. Weasels are the first planes sent into a war zone, flying deep behind enemy lines purposely seeking to draw fire from surface-to-air missiles and artillery. They must skillfully evade being shot down - and then return to destroy the threats, thereby making the skies safe for everyone else to follow.

    Story

    Very interesting book for those who are interested in military aviation. It does get a bit technical at times but will not loose you in the typical acronyms that are found in most military stories.
    It is a fighter pilot's story and told from his perspective. His candor is surprising and makes the book more personal.
    I do recommend for the aviation enthusiast.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Great book!
