    Lt. Michael Patrick Murphy, commander of Navy SEAL Team 10, posthumously received the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroic actions on 28 June 2005 during a fierce battle with Taliban fighters in the remote mountains of eastern Afghanistan. Michael was the first recipient of the nation’s highest military honor as a result of U.S. involvement in Afghanistan. He was also the first naval officer to earn the medal since the Vietnam War, and the first SEAL to be honored posthumously.

    Jean says: "first Medal of Honor winner in Afghanistan"
    "Great Story of what it takes to be the best"

    Story
    Would you listen to Seal of Honor again? Why?

    I LOVED the first time listening to the book, but I would not listen to it a second time. Learning about 'Murph' was great. Knowing some of the amazing qualities and strength of this amazing man was inspiring. To learn everything that goes into making a NSW warrior is awe inspiring, but the book gets a little too detailed which causes you to lose focus due to all the acronyms.


    What other book might you compare Seal of Honor to and why?

    The Red Circle by Brandon Webb. They are very similar to the description and details pertaining to the NSW world.


    Which character – as performed by A. T. Chandler – was your favorite?

    All, A.T. Chandler does a great job of reading and has "The voice" for this book. You just can have anyone read you a story about our nations finest.


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

    I was inspired through out the whole bool.

  • The Things They Carried

    Hailed by The New York Times as "a marvel of storytelling", The Things They Carried’s portrayal of the boots-on-the-ground experience of soldiers in the Vietnam War is a landmark in war writing. Now, three-time Emmy Award winner-Bryan Cranston, star of the hit TV series Breaking Bad, delivers an electrifying performance that walks the book’s hallucinatory line between reality and fiction and highlights the emotional power of the spoken word.

    Darwin8u says: "Grief, terror, love, longing"

    If you could sum up The Things They Carried in three words, what would they be?

    If you want to know what it was like to be a grunt here is your chance.


    What about Bryan Cranston’s performance did you like?

    He was very stern and serious. It felt as if he was the one who the book was about.


    If you could take any character from The Things They Carried out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Bryan Cranston

    The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a pinata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I think it was a great book. Dylan Baker does a great job keeping you focused on the story.


    Would you recommend Boomerang to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes its very insightful to the financial status or the world and the blunders certain countries have made to put the world in this financial vice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO
