  • Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 11 mins)

    Story
    (209)

    The best-selling author of Into the Wild, Into Thin Air, and Under the Banner of Heaven delivers a stunning, eloquent account of a remarkable young man's haunting journey. Like the men whose epic stories Jon Krakauer has told in his previous bestsellers, Pat Tillman was an irrepressible individualist and iconoclast. In May 2002, Tillman walked away from his $3.6 million NFL contract to enlist in the United States Army.

    Daniel says: "Good book, painful narration"
    "Outstanding Research and Writing"
    Overall

    Krakauer has done it again! His factual research and history of Afghanistan are outstanding. The book is a must read for President Obama; as a result, no more soldiers would then be sent to fight in a hopeless war for a corrupt Karzi government. You will not want to stop listening.

    Drawing on more than 500 interviews with friends and family, teammates, and opponents, she delivers the definitive account of Mantle's life, mining the mythology of The Mick for the true story of a luminous and illustrious talent with an achingly damaged soul.

    Elle in the Great NorthWest says: "Exceptional - a real must read for baseball fans"
    "A tragic hero"
    Overall

    Leavy provides a personal and well researched insight into the Mick. She also provides a very interesting insight into the culture of the 50's and 60's which allows the reader to better understand why Mantle was personally out of control. A very well written biography of the painful inner truth of a great baseball hero.
