    A deadly serious game of hide-and-seek is on. The CIA's brilliant young analyst, Jack Ryan, thinks he knows the reason for the sudden Red Fleet operation: the Soviets' most valuable ship, the Red October, is attempting to defect to the United States.

    Where does The Hunt for Red October rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Right now, my favorite audio book.


    What does J. Charles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He's got a good voice for the military subject matter. He changes tone appropriately with different characters to help you keep track of who is talking.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Desk bound analyst stumbles into the biggest post cold war defection in history.

    This is the complete text of The Art of War, one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world. It has also been applied to business and managerial strategies. The tranaslaton, by Lionel Giles is considered one of the best available. This unabridged editon of The Art of War includes only the most essential translator's notes so that the words and thoughts of Sun Tzu may be easily understood.

    What disappointed you about The Art of War?

    This reads like an antiquated and ambiguous combat manual. I was expecting more on ancient tactics that might be applicable to current situations. Lots of repetition and contradictions.


    What could Sun Tzu have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Less ambiguity, less contradictions.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jim Roberts’s performances?

    No. His slight Boston accent is grating over time. Also the echoes from the room he recorded in are distracting.
