    In June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan for the Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader. Less then 24 hours later, only one of those SEALs remained alive. This is the story of how team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle that led to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history.

    Michael says: "Great listen"

    Overall

    I enjoyed this listen very much. Marcus is an impressive human and this is a great story about the people who put it on the line for all of us here in the USA. My only knock is he doesn't understand liberals at all and his politics full of hate for his fellow americans, That made me sad for him. Remember Marcus you fight for your buddies first, then Family, then Texas and then all of us. ALL of us, not just the conservatives you greatly admire like President Bush. Remember liberals are Americans no more or less than you are an American.
    You should have killed the goat herders and that is coming from a liberal. I hope you read this review, I'm darn proud of you and your fallen friends and patriots!

    Pete is very sad. He just found out his parents are getting a divorce. Sitting in his backyard feeling sad and alone, he meets two new friends who help him realize that his parents' divorce is not his fault, and that he is not alone after all.

    This was not good in any way shape or form. Do not waste your money. To much religion and not enough about how to help your kid(s) through something as challenging as a divorce.

    Story
    (1336)

    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian and Sam Harris' recent best-seller, The End of Faith, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion. With a close and erudite reading of the major religious texts, he documents the ways in which religion is a man-made wish, a cause of dangerous sexual repression, and a distortion of our origins in the cosmos.

    ben capozzi says: "...Though Hitchens Is!"
    "Excellent Listeing"
    Overall

    I very much enjoyed listening to this book. Never been a big fan of his but in this case I thought he had the goods on this subject. I think people on both sides of this topic should take time to listen or read this book as it provokeed a great deal of thought for me. I agree with him and my life experience brings me to the same conclusion. I recommend it!

    Given unprecedented access to La Russa and his team, best-selling journalist Bissinger captures baseball's strategic and emotional essence. We watch from the dugout as La Russa's Cardinals take on their archrivals, the Chicago Cubs, in a thrilling three-game series.

    Peter says: "Book with good premise follows through"
    "Why we love Baseball!"
    Overall

    This book is about everything that is great and not so great about baseball. Great to listen too because it reveals the why and how this great game works and why we love it so much. The best insight about what really goes on behind the scenes and in front of the fan. If you want to learn and be entertained then this is one of the best listens I have had the pleasure to put on my iPod. Beautiful!

    Story

    The covenant that God made with the patriarch Abraham forms the basis of the three religions that today enjoy the largest followings in the world: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Despite the many common bonds among them, however, the Abrahamic religions have had an extremely complicated relationship, frequently defined by conflict, over the course of millennia of coexistence.

    David says: "No Faith Needed"
    "Very good."
    Overall

    Thie was an excellent overview. Content was through and presented in a very useful manner. His delivery is excellent.
