I was a little late to the party on this book. It is great, very gripping start to finish, the pace reminded me of The Perfect Storm. I read John's book on Pat Tillman and it was great as well.
I only listened to the audio book but I think that having the print edition would be good as well. Seems like a good night read.
There were a few parts that really reminded me of growing up in the Northeast. I also did a lot of the stuff the main character did, minus the dead body and all.
No first timer.
Made me think about growing up and protecting my kids.
Great read for teens and adults. Book is very memorable, lots of substance and a great new voice. Looking forward to more from Dan Maurer.
From Sinatra, Elvis, John Denver to the Karate Kid and the Ocean's 11 movies Jerry Weintraub has been around and very successful at a myriad of businesses. Great stories and great business and people lessons.
I knew a bit about Jobs and Apple from being a fan of the products and all the news around the time of his death. The book is a really great read. Jobs has a really fascinating life story. From adoption to a legacy that will live for decades and beyond. Hats off to Isaacson, I'll be sure to check out more of his books.
Fans of Cold Mountain will not be disappointed. This is a great character book that is dark sad and satisfying. It reads like poetry and that might not be everyone's bag but you can really see the story, sad and dark as it is. Loved it.
Hillenbrand weaves a great story about a depression era kid who becomes a world class athlete, a fighter pilot, a POW and a hero. Just as good as Seabiscuit.
If you want to understand how media consumption has evolved into participation read this book. Great examples and background.
Sometimes a little long in the set up but this is the best book I have read in years. The movie version which is all ready in dev will be great if they do not screw it up. Really, really good book, not at all about vampires. Great characters, fascinating story with lots of twists.
It takes too long to kick into gear but it is far superior to most of the other leading mystery authors out there, bar none. It is R rated but intelligent and engaging.
Cross is funny and inventive. The book was a tad too long and self indulgent. Worth a listen.
