    In this illuminating memoir, McChrystal frankly explores the major episodes and controversies of his eventful career. He delves candidly into the intersection of history, leadership, and his own experience to produce a book of enduring value. Joining the troubled post-Vietnam army as a young officer, McChrystal witnessed and participated in some of our military’s most difficult struggles. He describes the many outstanding leaders he served with and the handful of bad leaders he learned not to emulate.

  • Common Nonsense: Glenn Beck and the Triumph of Ignorance

    Forget Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity--Glenn Beck is the Rights new media darling and the unofficial leader of the conservative grassroots. Lampooned by the Left and Lionized by the far Right, his bluster-and-tears brand of political commentary has commandeered attention on both sides of the aisle. Glenn Beck has emerged over the last decade as a unique and bizarre conservative icon for the new century.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book seemed to over portray Glenn Beck as the worst person in the world. There was not a single positive thing said about him from birth to present. But the book made it sound like the author was in bed with him, knowing every move and morsel of information. I have listened to Glenn Beck for years and somethings I don't totally agree with but this book showed him as the devil. I do not recommend.

    Just a generation ago this place was called America. Now, after the worldwide implementation of UN-lead program called Agenda 21, it's simply known as the 'Republic'. There is no president. No congress. No Supreme Court. No freedom. There are only the Authorities. Citizens have two primary goals in the new Republic: to create clean energy and to create new human life. Those who cannot do either are of no use to society. This bleak and barren existence is all that 18-year-old Emmeline has ever known.

    Would you listen to Agenda 21 again? Why?

    I enjoyed the read start to finish. I expected a documentary type narrative. Not to much on story books. But I looked forward to it every chance i got.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Made you do some deep thoughts about how good we have it now.


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

    not necessary
