    Chasin’ the Wind nails the colorful and often violent action in both Key West, Florida, and Havana, Cuba. It navigates corruption and small town politics in the southernmost city of the United States. It bumps into a scheme to topple Cuba's communist government and throws Cuban exiles and military deserters, neurotic federal agents, plus a few unique Key Westers into a brew that promises international repercussions."

    "A great Key West story"
    Overall

    I've lived in Key West a long time and know the veracity of this book. Reading Michael's book is like being here. If you want to step away from where you are, and step into the reality of Key West, you'll enjoy spending time with Mad Mick in my hometown and Havana. And I've been there too (long story).

  • A History of Warfare

    Starting with the premise that all civilizations owe their origins to warmaking, Keegan probes the meanings, motivations, and methods underlying war in different societies over the course of more than two thousand years. Following the progress of human aggression in its full historical sweep, from the strangely ritualistic combat of Stone Age peoples to the warfare of mass destruction in the present age, his illuminating and lively narrative gives us all the world's great warrior cultures.

    Dan says: "Complete, Informative, and Insightful"
    "Terrific Keegan"
    Overall

    I found this a terrific review of war over the millenia. Many insights, frequent references to the validity of Clausewitz's views. I wish I'd had Keegan as a professor.

  • The Compleat Gentleman: The Modern Man's Guide to Chivalry

    Story
    (14)

    At a time of astonishing confusion about what it means to be a man, Brad Miner has recovered the oldest and best ideal of manhood: the gentleman. Reviving a thousand-year tradition of chivalry, honor, and heroism, The Compleat Gentleman provides the essential model for 21st-century masculinity.

    Eric says: "Good argument (with a single near-fatal flaw)"
    "Being a gentleman is living a tradition"
    Overall

    This book is far more than a manners guide. It speaks deeply to the largely Western traditions of honor, valor, consideration for others, and yes, manners and the special care for women. These things are skipped over in schools today, to our diminishment. The world would be a better place if men strove more towards becoming gentlemen.

    Story

    One evening in 1951, an itinerant storyteller arrives unannounced at a house in the Irish countryside. In exchange for a bed and a warm meal, he invites his hosts and their neighbors to join him by the wintry fireside, and begins to tell formative stories of Ireland's history. Ronan, a 9-year-old boy, grows so entranced by the storytelling that, when the old man leaves abruptly under mysterious circumstances, the boy devotes himself to finding him again.

    S. Marie says: "A wonderfully read history of Ireland"
    "Terrific listen"
    Overall

    I loved the classic stories of Ireland and the story of Roland and his search. Usually I listen to non-fiction. This book had enough of great legends, their application to the modern day, truth that had been burnished, and facts about Ireland that it was a very satisfying book to listen to. And I found the author the perfect reader.
