    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    They are warriors

    When Seal Team 6 arrived back in the States. It angered me about the political leaks but I was happy that the public showed their appreciation.

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

  • The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business

    At its core, The Power of Habit contains an exhilarating argument: The key to exercising regularly, losing weight, raising exceptional children, becoming more productive, building revolutionary companies and social movements, and achieving success is understanding how habits work. Habits aren’t destiny. As Charles Duhigg shows, by harnessing this new science, we can transform our businesses, our communities, and our lives.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Power of Habit in three words, what would they be?

    very interesting book


    What did you like best about this story?

    thought the story may get boring because of the subject matter - how can you talk about habit for 8 hours ? But it never was boring. There was a great mixture of research, stories, and theory that kept me interested for the entire book.


    What does Mike Chamberlain bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is easy to listen to and held my attention


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Power of Habit?

    The way he broke down habits - how they were formed, recognized & changed


    Any additional comments?

    Liked the way the book was divided into 3 sections to explain personal/corporate/society habits.

  • Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot

    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Killing Kennedy the most enjoyable?

    The book moved fast yet it explained the characters well. It was interesting to go beyond the legends and learn the human side of the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Surprisingly it was Jackie. I found her fascinating. Never heard these details of her personality before.


    What about Bill O'Reilly’s performance did you like?

    I thought his "matter of fact" tone of voice added to the historical story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Could never listen to a book in one sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    Would recommend this book to anyone, but especially to the "Baby Boomers" who were too young to remember the details of the 60's or who need reminded.
