    For decades they assumed that people who face adversity - a difficult childhood, career turbulence, sudden bouts of bad luck - will succumb to their circumstances. Yet over and over again they found a significant percentage are able to overcome their life circumstances and achieve spectacular success. How is it that individuals who are not “supposed” to succeed manage to overcome the odds? Are there certain traits that such people have in common?

    Any additional comments?

    It will probably take 50 years for the principles to be widely accepted. In the mean time, you can take advantage of the principles outlined in the book, make wise investments in your time and efforts and profit from them.

    After saving America from Middle Eastern terrorists, even Mike Harmon and the Keldara could use a vacation. Of course, the Kildar's idea of a vacation includes taking down pirates in the Singapore Straits. But when he finds computer chips designed to run nuclear reactors in the pirate booty, Harmon has a new mission thrust upon him - discover how bottom-feeding thieves got their hands on top-secret technology. The chips are headed for newly democratic Myanmar, a country vital to American interests in the region. Now Harmon finds himself in a desperate race to learn who stole the chips and why.

    Story

    I found myself genuinely interested in the characters and its difficult to believe it was read by one person. Jeremy Arthur did a great job.

    It is an interesting thriller that engages the listener, but is misfiled as a Sci Fi book.
    I am still glad to have purchased the entire series.

    If I ever saw Mountain Tiger Beer I would probably buy a case irrespective of the cost. The author and Narrator did a great job of selling the stuff. Perhaps some vertical marketing opportunities available there.

    Ex-SEAL Mike Harmon has bought the farm - literally, in Eastern Europe. But trouble follows him even there, and the man who has made himself anathema to terrorists from Syria to Paris suddenly has Chechen terrorists banging on his own door.

    Our hero Services targets and Georgia, the state and the country.
    It's good to know our tax dollars are spent on something while fighting terrorists.
    Be careful listening to this while in a drive through.

    Ark Royal - the Royal Navy’s outdated space carrier - has won a smashing victory against the enigmatic aliens, capturing one of their starships and returning to Earth. Now, Admiral Theodore Smith and his crew are assigned to command a fleet charged with making a deep-penetration raid into alien territory, a fleet made up of carriers from four different nations. But with a crewman who isn't what he seems, untested pilots and international friction - and a new and dangerous alien plan - can Ted and his crew survive their mission?
