The Ace Man knows how to spin a yarn and the fact he ad libs while reading it makes it that much better.
I follow Carolla's podcast and have seen him live a couple of times. Really like his performances.
Interesting in its simplicity and ridiculousness of humanity writ small by Carolla's unique experience.
Not a thing. Carolla is very funny and is so quick on the ad-lib stuff that you have to pay attention or you'll miss something.
I usually enjoy anything Steinhauer does and I assume this was a sort of concept novel. While it was an interesting way to build the story, one table, two people and dual-dueling narrators didn't get there for me.
Hastings as always brings both the humanity and the horror to war. His tales of the bravery of Bomber Command's crews and breathtaking and the aftermath of a firebombed German city will leave you heartbroken and horrified. His is a master of his craft.
An excellent, quickly-paced narrative of two of America's finest commanders and men. Honest, forthright and sympathetic without fawning, this is a book for anyone who wants to understand how the Civil War made Grant and Lee and remade the country with them.
Fleming can weave a yarn but even granting that the book was written in 1954 the stereotypes are horrific. A lot less racial epithets would have made this a much better book.
A must read for anyone who wants to know how and why the U.S. Government does things in the national security realm. You'll be amazed at the things people do
Yes. Though, long, a fascinating new history of WWII.
The individual histories Hastings has put together to complete this book.
