Sarah is a great narrator and many of the stories were very funny and poignant, but the detailed description of each season of the show, and the participants was a little tedious. At times it seemed like an extended "acknowledgements" page. Overall, a worthwhile listen. Sarah is a true comic genius.
This is a lesson of personal redemption as Lt. Redman gets a second chance after nearly blowing his career. This is one committed Naval Officer! Erik Bergman is a very talented reader; he sounded really connected to the story which was surprising in its depth.
The most powerful images in the book were when Lt. Redman was traveling for medical attention after suffering devastating facial injuries in battle. The reaction of fellow travelers upset him by the lack of awareness and appreciation for the sacrifice of the brave men and women who put their lives on the line to protect our freedom.
Too many of us take those in our armed services for granted. My outlook has been changed. I am glad there are so many committed men and women out there looking out for us.
Every American citizen that enjoys the freedoms that too many of us take for granted should read this book! You will learn to be a better citizen.
