    A native of Birmingham, Alabama who overcame the racism of the Civil Rights era to become a brilliant academic and expert on foreign affairs, Rice distinguished herself as an advisor to George W. Bush during the 2000 presidential campaign. Once Bush was elected, she served as his chief adviser on national-security issues – a job whose duties included harmonizing the relationship between the Secretaries of State and Defense.

    Story

    When I first downloaded the book, I thought to myself 28 hrs is really long for a book.
    As it turned out Condoleeza had a lot to say (worth listening to) .

    I found her point a view invaluable as I dissect the Bush administration from the inside. Her views of Donald Rumsfeld were interesting(his book is next for me) as were they on Colin Powell. I'm a supporter of George Bush and have read his and Cheney's book along with Karl Roves. They made mistakes and to get all sides of the story you must read, No Higher Honor.
    You will discover a well rounded sensitive person who loves her family and country.
    This is worth the time investment if you like history.

  • The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs

    Here is an explosive book that takes us, for the first time, deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to succeed that they would do anything—and take any risk, physical, mental, or moral—to gain the edge they needed to win. The Secret Race is a riveting, courageous act of witness from a man who is as determined to reveal the hard truth about his sport as he once was to win the Tour de France.

    Story

    A well written account of cycling, the desire to compete and how the rules were twisted.
    I now understand how it all works and how easy it is to love something so much you are willing to risk all. Now I wonder what other sports use these techniques.

    Over the course of this gripping narrative, Dave Cullen approaches his subjects with unrivaled care and insight. What emerges are shattering portraits of the killers, the victims, and the community that suffered one of the greatest - and most socially and historically important - shooting tragedies of the 20th century.

    Story

    A very good book about a tragedy that could have been avoided.
    It wasn't about firearms it was about professionals not acting on the signs that were as plain as the nose on your face. After the killings they tried to cover it up.

    Well written and narrated.

    Worm: The First Digital World War tells the story of the Conficker worm, a potentially devastating piece of malware that has baffled experts and infected more than twelve million computers worldwide. When Conficker was unleashed in November 2008, cybersecurity experts did not know what to make of it. Exploiting security flaws in Microsoft Windows, it grew at an astonishingly rapid rate, infecting millions of computers around the world within weeks.

    Story

    An interesting read about a subject I knew little about. Sure I surf the internet but never understood the workings and how someone benefits from all the viruses(malware).
    I came away knowing more about the internet and with less confidence in my government to protect us.
    I would recommend this book as an eye opener!

    Sergeant Charles Windolph was the last white survivor of the Battle of Little Big Horn when he told his story nearly 70 years later. A six-year veteran in the Seventh Cavalry, Windolph rode in the 1873 Yellowstone Expedition, and the 1874 Black Hills Expedition. He fought in Captain Benteen's troops on the fatal Sunday, and vividly recalls the battle that wiped out Custer's command. Equally vivid is the evidence marshaled by historians Frazier and Robert Hunt.

    If you liked Nathaniel Philbrick's The last stand. This book is a perfect addition to the facts learned in Philbricks history of the battle.
    A point of view from a Bentine admirer that supports a opinion from the troops that lived with the fallen soldiers.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    Story

    The autopsy of Lincolns death with all the sub plots was performed by Bill And Martin in this well written book.
    Although I listen to it in my car through audible books. It was interesting to know how all the players came to together with the war being the main back ground.Politics and personnel hatred were much alive in 1864.
    Bills performance as a narrator was ok as I like Bill very much.There's a monotone or cadence in his presentation that is annoying however. Sorry Bill but it would have been better read by someone else.
    The book is a must read if you like complete details and darkening plots.

  • Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and the Shameless Cover-Up

    Two hundred and rising. That's the death tally for the Obama administration's "Operation Fast & Furious." The program was supposedly designed to "win the drug war" by deliberately walking more than two thousand guns across the border to Mexico. But instead of catching drug lords, Fast & Furious armed the very kingpins it was supposed to trap.

    Story

    Katie Pavlich has capture in detail just how far the Obama administration was willing to go in their deception to blame law abiding gun shop owners for our government failure on the border.
    As Rob Emanuel said “You never let a serious crisis go to waste”
    The gun hating second amendment crown crossed a deadly line in their lust for change. Americans and hundreds of innocent Mexicans ended up murdered and the nightmare is far from over.
    The facts in this book come from whistle blowers and recorded facts from the ongoing congressional hearings not conjecture. Any American or Mexican that reads this who is not writing our President or Mexico’s asking for Holders head should be ashamed.
    A good read and lesson in American Politics.
