This book is outstanding. Be confident in giving it to anyone who is sick or has family members who are sick. However, there is a huge difference between the narrators. Only get the book that has the author as a narrator. Even though it is abridged, it is so much better! I have purchased both versions and have made my parents and siblings purchase it. Great book!!!
The content was very good. In fact, I am now going through the book again to take notes.
This book sticks to the content, rather than repetition, lame stories, or anecdotes.
I think dry books such as these need to be read at 3x speed. If you've never tried it before, give it 15 to 20 minutes... and see how you like it. I think you will adjust and come to the conclusion I have, that 3x is the only way to go when you are listening to subject matter that can be dry.
Absolutely a great book. This abridged format is better than the unabridged. Most importantly, it is read by the author.
A MUST read.
Should be read by all audiences. This is a book that will add to all your life experiences. Vitally important for you to read!
I thought this was a great book. If you have read First Son: George W. Bush and the Bush Family Dynasty, you will see that this book missed this whole aspect of GW's life. First Son is regarded as a great book that accounts for GW's life. It's really not that great if it left out a lot of the most essential part of his life. It is no wonder that the author of First Son was absolutely surprised (when interviewed) when Bush answered that his favorite philospher was "Christ".
I really loved this book. It motivated me to buy a hard copy. It shows a history of a great group (OSS) of people who you won't find anywhere else. I was completely surprised that these "made for movie" type operations and people really exisited. From our men getting tortured and killed to OSS operatives knowing what would happen to the fate of some of the captures we received, this book is very graphic and extremely invigorating.
I suggest it to anyone who is interested in history, the military, intelligence, or sacrifice.
Mark Levin is a very smart person who writes with passion and accuracy. His book tackles a tough topic, which is fast becoming a topic of national concern. If you want to know more about the topic, this is the book to read.
Definitely worth the read!
