He was a small cog in the great machinery of WW II but he had a front row seat, which he shares with us. This book gives a glimpse of what the war was like at the point of action. It is not only tremendously enlightening it is very entertaining. If you have an interest in naval military history as told from an individual combatant?s perspective, you should consider this book.
Srrobel tries in this book to make the reader feel that he or she is walking with a reporter who is using his years of investigative experience to prove (or disprove) the case for Christ's existence and then the case for his divinity. I enjoyed the book and feel that it does help the lay reader begin to understand that there is a great deal of biblical and non-biblical support for Christ's existence. However, it is more difficult to feel as comfortable about Christ's divinity.
If your goal were to build a foundation to help support your faith that Christ was God, this book would serve well as perhaps one building block. To make a stronger case that Christ was divine the author should have spent more time interviewing those scholars who hold well-reasoned arguments against the divinity of Christ and dealing with their objections. With this in mind, I would recommend the book and remind people that building a case for Christ and his divinity will be a long journey.
Generally, this book is considered one of the better biographies of Churchill. Having read a number of them I would agree. The recording itself is well done, though the part that deals with Churchill?s life between the wars is a bit slow and dry. This, however, seems to be the case with any book of this larger-than-life man.
You either love or hate Gen. Macarthur, but it is hard not to love this book. When the book was first published, I rushed to buy a copy using what little money I had saved as a teenager. This was money well spent.
It is with great pleasure that I report that this recording has brought this book back to life for me. Of the dozens of books I have acquired from Audible this one ranks as number one.
First, the banter and silly voices distract from the content. Second, most of the content was silly and few useful recommendations were made. Third, the book is dated and its references to presentation technology were essentially useless. There are much better books on this topic at Audible.
