An absolutely fantastic book for all those who like to know more about the mysteries leading to 9/11 and why it could not have been prevented.
I would recommend the book due to the great presentation of its content by the voice talents and the documentary style which makes the entire story feel very real indeed.
Yes, I am interested to see his style on other subjects of fiction.
Outstanding! Tone, speech style, word choice and even accent for the various characters is spot on an feels real.
I would take all of them out for their team contribution to this book.
I would segment the stops of the audio book a little finer such that it is easier to pic up the book. Jumping by chapters is a little too wide a margin for listening in and finding where you left the book prior. The discount to this rating on the story is made because the Zombie subject has been around for a while and there may have been other ideas to create the "living dead". But, hey, I am not an author...
Not only the content, but the "british" intonation by the narrator is truly amazing and great fun to listen to. Do not miss this !
This might be a great audiobook, if only I could download it, but no such luck if you are from Germany... Hope these kind of restrcitions will not become the norm.
This book reports about the events leading to and happening on 9/11 in a thrilling fashion with a detailed account of events. A truly fantastic book!
Apart from the very pleasant voice of the reader who always finds just the right intonation, this book provides the listener with very enlightening insides in the global attack on our civil liberties. It also document the limits of governmental intrusion in the internet- and communication age, as well as the absurdity of the intent by a conglomerate of the anglo-saxon world to control and manage the worlds intelligence via "remote". The book is full of intersting insides and even elaborates on the impossibility to make true sense of the unsurmountable volumes of intelligence gathered by the global Echelon network. Could the NSA have prevent 9/11, and why could it not? I would recomend this book to anyone who likes to demystify the so-called powerful institutions...
I have spend the better part of the last 15 years at the helm of companies like DELL, SEGA and Nintendo in very competitive retail/consumer environments. So, sort of, I was on the other side of the supply chain. Still, this book was enourmously interesting and should be a must-read for anyone concerned with high pressure retail-based business for it documents how and why people buy and what makes them buy. It tells you how things should be done at retail and thus helps you to find just the right approach to trigger your partners in retail. It helps you to understand their issues and enabled you to talk much more at eye-level with them for you simply understand them much better. The book also helps you to design and poistion the typical cardbord materials and displays because you will far better understand the issues at retail and what you have to do to stand out. You will then possibly avoid mistakes and consider/apply all the crucial elements of what makes people take your product off the shelve and into their hands. Also, you will be in a better position to challenge your sales teams and increase your ability to make your marketing folks think realistic, from a retail perspective to make you POS $'s work harder for you. It will also help you to be more considerate with package design in the context of presentation. Does your product truly stand out and is it presented in the right way, in the right environment and instore position? Why did our last dispenser not trigger sell-thru? All this will become much clearer to you.
Another remark would be that the speaker of this book (no wonder) is truly remarkable and enjoyable. There is always just the right tonality and pronounciation to bring across what the author had in his mind. He very much brings across the convictions.
Fantastic and truly engaging! Give this to your trade marketeers!
Richard A. Clarke provided an exceptional inside into the events prior and during the day of 9/11. He demonstrated incredible dignity already at the very beginning of the hearing with an appology to the families and friends of the victims of 9/11. This I found to be a display of unsurpassed grandeur and probarbly his bravest moment in life. Most impressive was his calm and sober-voiced language which had incredible precision. He demonstrated how smart a man he truly is and how well he must have served his country. I greatly admire his honesty and courage. This is a must to listen to for anyone who want to get a feel for what had truly happened. It is also a good preparation prior to listening to his Audiobook "Against all Ememies" that takes his story even further. I listened to this Audiobook more than once and found it even more impressive then.
