  • America's Secret War: Inside the Struggle Between the United States and Its Enemies

    Dubbed by Barron's as "The Shadow CIA", Stratfor, George Friedman's global intelligence company, has provided analysis to Fortune 500 companies, news outlets, and even the U.S. government. Now Friedman delivers the geopolitical story that the mainstream media has been unable to uncover, the startling truth behind America's foreign policy and war effort in Afghanistan, Iraq, and beyond.

    David says: "The Best"
    "This is the most important book you read all year!"
    Overall

    Reports come in on a daily basis of dead and wounded in Iraq. Protests come from all sides demanding that we get out and bring our boys home. Critics argue that we are just over there for the oil. So how did we end up fighting a war in Iraq? George Friedman takes us inside the Intelligence community and back to the beginnings of al-Qa'ida. To understand today's issues in the Middle East Friedman helps us to understand the history of Muslim fighters in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Chechnya, Tajikistan, Somalia, Yemen, and Kosovo. He helps us to navigate the lies that are so critical in times of war. He drives home that it is a war that is being fought right here on our U.S. soil. This is a struggle that will affect all of us here in America for many years to come. This is information that every American needs to know and understand.

    Sarah Vowell exposes the glorious conundrums of American history and culture with wit, probity, and an irreverent sense of humor. With Assassination Vacation, she takes us on a road trip like no other, a journey to the pit stops of American political murder and through the myriad ways they have been used for fun and profit, for political and cultural advantage.

    Rachel says: "extremely entertaining and informative"
    "Get someone else to read it."
    Overall

    In The Incredibles her whiney voice is cute. After 1 hour I had had enough. Just couldn't finish it.

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Neal says: "Funny and Fascinating, A Wonderful Book"

    This was just too boring to finish.

    Here is a bold new history of economics, the dramatic story of how the great economic thinkers built a rigorous social science without peer.

    Overall

    Mark Skousen does an excellent job of bringing the history of economics to life. He weaves the lives of these great thinkers together in such an entertaining way that you don't even realize that you are listening to economics. He helps you to understand the theorists by sharing with you their personal histories. This was a great listen. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Bob Woodward tells the behind-the-scenes story of how President George W. Bush and his top national security advisers led the nation to war. Woodward's virtual wiretap into the White House Situation Room reveals a stunning group portrait of an untested president.

    Chris says: "An excellent book"
    "Exciting non-fiction"
    Overall

    This is the most exciting non-fiction I have ever read. It has all the makings of a Tom Clancy novel. I had to keep reminding myself that this was real.
