I highly recommend this book to get a look into the life of a very interesting young man.
Although there were times when all the detail behind each play/game seemed boring, it provided a foundation for the story. I enjoyed learning about his family and the role they played in his life and how a 'homeschooled' young man has grown to be a light in the ever darkening wold of pro sports.
I read this book for one reason. To learn more about the young quarterback who seems to be in the news weekly and sometimes daily. I am not a sports 'nut' but I enjoy reading about a success story of a young man who is making a positive difference in the sporting (entertainment) industry. Too often stars in the sport world are horrible role models filled with self pride and are very arrogant. This young man is setting a good example and is destined to be a great role model for young aspiring athletes.
First, his voice is amazing! The tell of his youth and the struggles to build him into the man he became is amazing. As others stated, it seemed he rambled on and on diminishing the value of the point. There were times when I kept checking how much was left of the book. Overall, the book is very good and I rated it 4 stars but if 3.5 were available that is my selection. I wanted to learn about a man who had tremendous impact on the culture and history of this nation which is why I listened to the book. Additionally, it was recommended as a must listen. I wouldn't say it is a must listen but it is worth listening to at least once. I wouldn't listen to it a second time and would recommend it as a listen for those who enjoy learning about successful people who paved the path in history.
When I listened to book three, I thought it was the 'best' in the series until I listened to this book. Nathan McBride reminds me of a modern day comic book hero but much more believable and engaging in the action. This is one of those books that kept me engaged through the end and would make a tremendous movie for many reasons. Although the other books in the series were great, this is the best with a tremendous story line.
When they were awarded the gold medal.
Looking back on the irony of their chastisement over speaking Navajo then it used to 'save' the country.
Yes, when he returned as a non-stated hero and was treated very poor by a government worker since he was a Navajo
I almost stopped listening two or three times since it seemed to dwell on certain items that didn't seem relevant until I finished the book. There were times the story moved very slow but I am glad I finished it because it added much value to my view on the importance the Navajos played not only in WWII but other parts of our history.
Unlike normal 'super hero' books. The story is much different than the others in the Nathan McBride series but with enough similarity.
Amazing ability to display the character as he illustrates and narrates the book.
Laughter over some of the statements of Lauren and yes I cried a few times.
Best in the series!
As other stated, it contains some very good tips. It drag on too long and at times, the author/narrator tripped over the words and her voice became annoying. I recommend the book for anyone getting started in an Essential Oil Business.
I found it predictable, lacking in suspense, and underwhelming compared to many others I read/listened to in the same genre.
A few times, I almost deleted it from my iPhone out of boredom but kept listening thinking a new twist was around the corner. Obviously, the writer enjoys the details of the weapons which seemed to make the weapons more the subject than the characters.
I gave it a 3 star overall based on the fact the story line 'could' happen in the near future.
At first I wasn't sure if I would enjoy the book or not. I purchased it based on a few recommendations and this is one of those books that contains many hidden meanings and lessons. There were a few times when the narrator (the author) seemed dry in his delivery, (which is why I rated performance a 3) but overall the book's content made up for the delivery. I recommend the book for all of the life's nuggets. Create your own story and live life to its fullest!
This book is short but filed with many nuggets that could get lost in the context. I have 3 plus decades in the business world and found this book a great resource to get my mind moving forward. I wish I could explain it but my suggestion is to listen to it, then listen to it again. You will not be sorry.
Excellent book for the writer or anyone in particular. Too often the work isn't done and we wonder why we don't get results. This is a must read for all workers but especially for those in a professional or entrepreneur adventure. It is a book that I will listen to many times and refer to it for hidden nuggets.
Maybe if the book was narrated by someone else or someone used to using different voices for the anecdotes and stories I could rate it higher. I reached 50% into the book and became bored because although the stories were different, they sounded the same when read by Gloria. I am sorry but this began to depress rather than inspire me from the stories. I have it on my iPhone and will pick up listening to it in the future but it isn't a book that I could finish without stopping many times.
