It is one of my favorite books so far.
More of a memorable tug of war between Don Rumsfeld/Dick Cheney and Condoleezza Rice.Though "thousand of tactical mistakes..." was pretty humorous.
Read Secretary Rice's book, General McChrystal's book, and Chris Kyle's book to get a perspective on the Iraq War from very different viewpoints.
For me, the main issue raised by Dr. Crenshaw is the actual wounds to President Kennedy’s body. Dr. Crenshaw’s eyewitness account needs unqualified corroboration from the other doctors and nurses in the operating room at the time. Clear, concise, and unqualified corroboration will place the Bethesda autopsy results in doubt and require an investigation. Unfortunately, as Dr. Crenshaw pointed out, and there is a historical record of, the Federal, State, and Local law enforcement authorities allowed contamination of the crime scene, pollution of the physical evidence, and improper handling of the victim (President Kennedy). Because of these egregious mistakes we will probably never know the truth of what happened.I do think the Warren Commission was proving a theory they had already decided was fact.
I do recommend this book. The reader (or listener) just needs to ignore the inflammatory language and listen for the issue and testimony.
Unimportant and irrelevant.
Yes. Fortunately, it was mostly brief and too the point.
From this biography, we learn about Dwight Eisenhower the person, soldier and politician. We learn plenty practical ideas for being successful in our own personal and professional lives. Paul Hecht’s presentation is just excellent.
Richard Labunski’s James Madison and the Struggle for the Bill of Rights is, in my opinion, much like Jean Edward Smith’s Eisenhower biography. Like the Eisenhower biography, we learn about James Madison the person, politician, and statesman. I read this book, so I cannot comment on the narrator presentation.
There is no particular scene that stood out; the entire book stands out in my mind.
The entire book moved me. Dwight Eisenhower is a person I wish I’d known personally.
Yes and no. Yes, it's good to know the facts. No, the narrator's voice really gave me a headache.
No. There must be a better biography of Douglas MacArthur.
Not much. Much.
Look for an alternative biography of Douglas MacArthur.
General McChrystal's book provides lots of details about how decisions were made, and how operations were executed. This book is interesting as historical record, and as source of practical advice. IWO
Excellent. Almost as good as General McChrystal ;)
My Share of the Task. You should know better than to ask me questions about making movies.
