Here is an audio edition of the sacred text of the Latter-Day Saint movement that followers believe contains the writings of ancient prophets who lived on the American continent from approximately 2200 B.C. to A.D. 421. A fascinating listen for religious scholars and denominational adherents alike.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

The scriptural reference is given for every chapter and every verse, with every verse. It's impossible to listen to and get anything from. What where they thinking? It's a total waste of a credit.

I'd love to have the book to listen to, but not with the references.

How could the performance have been better?

Delete the references with every verse!!!

Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.
