Entrepreneur Jesse Itzler will try almost anything. He brazenly pretended to be an established hip-hop artist to secure a meeting with a studio head - and it led to a record deal. He convinced a bunch successful business executives to invest in an unprecedented business plan - and it turned into Marquis Jet. He sincerely offered to run a 100-mile race in Spanx to get the attention of the beautiful founder of the company - and ended up marrying her.

I really didn't know what to expect but, the premise sounded intriguing. And, it was. SEAL is just an awesome character and, the fact that this is based on a real person makes me really want to meet him. I'm not sure I could keep up with the runs because I don't have the marathon background to do it but, I'd be down for the rest. It really makes me examine my life. The lack of discipline. The letting little things stand in the way of what I really want. And the clutter in my life. SEAL had something to teach me. SEAL has something to teach you too! Plus it's just a fun and entertaining story on top of that. TRY IT... YOU'LL LIKE OUT TOO!

I've listened to all the Zombie Fallout series twice. And I started this book and then backed up to book 8 just to make sure my head was in the right place to start this one. I didn't have to but, I wanted to get the fullest enjoyment out of Mr Tufo's latest installment. And I truly did. It was fantastic--as usual. I think his aggressive use of sarcasm is incredible. I love sarcasm and use it constantly. But, Marc is truly a master of sarcasm. He literally cracks me up--especially when Mike and B.T get to going back and forth it always brings a smile to my face if I don't literally laugh out loud. And Sean Runnette must also be a lover of the art of sarcasm because he brings it off flawlessly with his narration and character voices. He is Michael Talbot! Another great story from beginning to end. Thanks Mark Tufo! You should definitely get this book!. You should get them all! I couldn't recommend them more highly.

If you've read all the books in the Alex Hawke series then you will thoroughly enjoy this one as well. The narrator's uncanny linguistic skills still amaze me. He seamlessly switches between characters with a myriad of foreign accents. The story could be ripped from today's headlines and continues Hawke's strange friendship with Putin. I always thought the author leaned Putin in far too favourable of a light but, in this story the mask comes off. If you're new to the Alex Hawke books you can start here but, you'll be doing yourself a great favour if you start at the beginning and enjoy the whole tale. The only problem with that suggestion is the first couple of books aren't available on audible for some unknown reason which I truly hope they correct at some point. Great book!!!. James Bond meets Mitch Rapp.

It was the last peace, the great peace, the deep breath before the storm. The Golden Age was closing and the heavens paused and waited for the long plunge ahead. Some people saw it coming. But they were few. The first episode of this geopolitical thriller sets up the start of an epic battle between Light and Darkness. Taking listeners from Saudi Arabia to Israel to Washington D.C. and Chicago, Wrath & Righteousness is a frightening, torn-from-the-headlines peek into the future.

One of the better audio books I've listened to. A really good story about a devastating attack on the United States and the never ending fight between good and evil. In a small thread that extends throughout the book--A reminder that evil exists and is closer than we think. The greatest deception of Satan was to convince men that he doesn't exist. This book reminds you that he does and he plays a role in the world as an active participant.

If you've listened to any of the Pike Logan books you'll like this one just as well out better. The story isn't quite as intense as the usual save the world that pile does but, it's also more personal. It sees him dealing with the demons from his past and, perhaps a chance to put them behind him. Excellent reader and just a good solid book all the way around. Highly recommend.

Solid... Good continuation of the series. Just not great. It has its moments but, tends to jump around a bit. I'd still commend add a good read if you've listened to the rest of the series
Seems like this book was mostly setup fit the next one.
