    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.

    Overall

    As with any information now days I tend to be skeptical. Throughout my life news media taught me to be this way by misrepresenting the truth. The book contains a lot of history about the Arab people. A lot of intelligence the author says is true based on the intelligence his company has gathered. Some of the things he is talking about in the book (written in 2004) are coming to fruition recently. It's fascinating stuff. If you are interested in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars at all it is worth your time to listen to. Enjoy!

    The end of history. The new world order. Fine phrases, but as Jack Ryan is about to discover, history isn't dead yet - and only the nature of the threat is new. In peacetime, a new enemy readies a strike not only at America's territory, but at the heart of her economy, and National Security Advisor Jack Ryan must prepare an untested president to meet the challenge.

    Overall

    I didn't enjoy this one so much. The computer part lacked plausibility. The characters responded casually to things like nuclear threats and impending war with other Countries. The book makes our military sound unprofessional using slang for everything, and witty remarks in crisis situations. Not very plausible. And the F bomb, get ready for it, dropped many more times than military bombs in the book. Gd this, Gd that, the language sounded like a disgruntled teenager. This is only my 2nd Clancy book, I'm not very impressed.

    John Kelly, former Navy SEAL and Vietnam veteran, has a mission - but the Pentagon wants him for a mission of their own. As Clancy takes us through the twists and turns of Without Remorse, he blends the exceptional realism and authenticity that are his trademarks with intricate plotting, knife-edge suspense, and a remarkable cast of characters.

    Billy Taylor says: "Not His Best, But Worth The Read"
    "Good Story"
    Overall

    The story line is good, a bit gory at times but fascinating. The language is adults only, I sent an email over to audible asking for a version without the F Bomb and GD every few seconds. Hard to listen to with young ears around.

    An awesome audio book! I highly recommend the audio version or get it in addition to the written book. To hear Joel Osteen read it in person really helps as you can pick up on the tone and feeling he is trying to convey. The topics covered and advice in this book will benefit everyone. Is your life in a mess? Can't figure out why things aren't working for you? This book has the answers for you. Enjoy!

    You're no idiot, of course. Neither is the team of memory and linguistics experts who have designed the world's most effective foreign language self-study course. International travelers, students, and business people can now learn to converse in a new language in less than half the time they expect.

    "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Spanish, Level 1"
    Overall

    With the title of Complete Idiot's Guide I was expecting more (or any)explanations of the Spanish language. More like the For Dummies books. Things like is it based on Latin? How does it compare to english? Are there easy shortcuts knowing english you use in spanish? What is the origin of the spanish language? How about a list of words that are similar in both languages.

    Nada, nothing, it just goes right in to Lolita is at the airport, may I see your passport? I was very disatisfied with the audio book.
