    "A must read."

    A must read for anyone who cares about the coup and the imminent destruction of America. The jihadis have won.

    I love to read. On average I read and/or listen to more than 100 books a year. Audible has been a fantastic addition to my life. Love it!

    "Easily Forgotten"

    This was well read but largely forgettable. I finished it perhaps a week ago, and honestly couldn't tell you much about it.
