  • The Only Thing Worth Dying For: How Eleven Green Berets Forged a New Afghanistan

    The Only Thing Worth Dying For chronicles the most important mission in the early days of the Global War on Terror, when the men on the ground knew little about the enemy - and their commanders in Washington knew even less. With unprecedented access to surviving members of ODA 574, key war planners, and Karzai himself, award-winning author Eric Blehm cuts through the noise of politicians and high-level military officials to narrate, for the first time, a story of uncommon bravery and terrible sacrifice.

    Story

    Very interesting story about the beginning of the Afghan war, and the first Afghan premiere, Hamid Karzi, but shows the ability and strength and sacrifice of the Special Forces teams that were the tip of the sword.

    Story

    Like many young idealists, Eric Greitens wanted to make a difference. During college and afterward, he traveled to the world's trouble spots, working in refugee camps, serving the sick and the poor on four continents, from Gaza to Croatia to Mother Teresa's home in Calcutta, among others. Yet he could not prevent violence or save anyone from becoming a refugee; he could only step in afterward and try to ease the damage. So Eric joined the Navy SEALs and became an elite warrior....

    If you could sum up The Heart and the Fist in three words, what would they be?

    Not for everyone


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Earl, solid human being trying to improve the lives of his students


    What about Eric Greitens’s performance did you like?

    It was unusual, I was interested to hear a book narrated by the author. Initially it was a little difficult and some of the reading felt stilted - I had expected it to flow, but after a while I got used to the style and it was fine.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    In some ways, it prompted me to think about what difference, if any, I was making. I found myself coming up very short in comprarison to Greitens.

    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    Karen Knabe says: "Truly the story of a Hero"
    "Inspiring and touching"

    What made the experience of listening to Fearless the most enjoyable?

    Inspiring story of a good man who turned his life around after wandering down the wrong path


    Have you listened to any of Paul Michael’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Listened to "The Black Count", both performances were very good, easy to listen to and very clear.
