  • Hannibal and Me: What History’s Greatest Military Strategist Can Teach Us About Success and Failure

    The lives of Hannibal and his Roman enemies are the stuff of legend. But these classic stories contain truths with relevance today: The seeds of our successes lie in our failures, and within our successes are the kernels of our failure. Knowing how to recognize these paradoxes will help us to be more effective at work, at school, at home, and with others. A big new idea book that springs from ancient history, Hannibal and Me explores these exciting ideas by analyzing the experiences of Hannibal and others who made their mark on history.

    Story
    If you could sum up Hannibal and Me in three words, what would they be?

    inspired my thinking


    What did you like best about this story?

    history became relevant, alive, the story telling was magnificent. The narrator was a joy to listen to.


    What did you learn from Hannibal and Me that you would use in your daily life?

    I think about people that I interact with, and try to understand their "history" . I was inspired to read ( or audio ) more biographies to expand my own knowledge.


    Any additional comments?

    I have recommended this title to many of my friends. I work out ( hiking and outdoor cardio ) while listening to audiobooks, and with this story, I was compelled to work out longer as I didn't want my sessions to end. I will again listen to this book after I have read about Eleanor Roosevelt. I had already read all of Amy Tan's books, so I was familiar with her as an author, but enjoyed learning more about her as a child. I also love ancient history, so of course, the story of Hannibal was great.

  • Call of Duty: My Life Before, During, and After the Band of Brothers

    As part of the elite 101st Airborne paratroopers, Lt. Lynn "Buck" Compton fought in the critical battles of Normandy and Market Garden and in the freezing cold of Bastogne. Easy Company, immortalized as the Band of Brothers, stands today as an unparalleled icon of brotherhood and bravery under fire.

    This is the true story of a real-life hero who traveled to a faraway place and put his life on the line for the cause of freedom---and an insightful memoir about courage, leadership, camaraderie, compassion, and the opportunities for success that can only happen in America.

    Story

    I just loved listening to the story just as I used to love listening to my dad's stories , as he was a World War II B-17 bomber pilot. The author, Lynn Compton, and my dad would've been the same age. I had watched the Band of Brothers miniseries on DVD many years ago and now I'll make sure that the book is on my list of future audibles to listen to.
    I highly recommend Call of Duty, and I hope that my children will also listen to the story.

    When the Navy sends their elite, they send the SEALs. When the SEALs send their elite, they send SEAL Team Six—a secret unit tasked with counterterrorism, hostage rescue, and counterinsurgency. In this dramatic, behind-the-scenes chronicle, Howard Wasdin takes listeners deep inside the world of Navy SEALs and Special Forces snipers, beginning with the grueling selection process of Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL - the toughest and longest military training in the world.

    Allan says: "unique among these books"

    Story

    After just finishing Lone Survivor, Seal Team Six is a great follow up story. I ran and hiked more miles because I was so engaged in the story. I will continue to seek out great military stories.

    Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

    Story

    This first hand account is genuinely riveting . I listen to audible books , mostly history and biographical while hiking trails and found myself going many more miles so I could continue with the story. I had just finished Fighter Pilot ( WWll - Viet Nam memoir of ace pilot Robin Olds ) and Ghengis Khan ( 1200AD Mongols vs the world ), and couldn't help but relate about how wars are fought to either win ( or not ) . If you like history and want to have a taste of Navy Seal training , don't miss this one !
