With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files, and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One, and the White House residence.

So concluded the National Football League in a December 2005 scientific paper on concussions in America's most popular sport. That judgment, implausible even to a casual fan, also contradicted the opinion of a growing cadre of neuroscientists who worked in vain to convince the NFL that it was facing a deadly new scourge: A chronic brain disease that was driving an alarming number of players - including some of the all-time greats - to madness.

I loved this book because it is my favorite genre--true stories. I was born and raised in The Metroplex--DFW! AND I liked the 'Boyz, but after being dragged to the heart of "Deadskin" land--I became an AVID `BOYZ` fan.
Unfortunately, after lis6to this book, I am totally turned off by the NFL! I have cancelled The Sunday Ticket and will never willingly watch another game! Thank you for exposing this horrible, greedy and selfish league!!!

The Holy Spirit was infused into my Soul and yours, if you are a Baptized Christian. The question raised in A Journey with The Holy Spirit is, what is the reason for The Holy Spirit being infused in our Souls? Follow me as I track my relationship with God The Father through His Son, in The Holy Spirit.

In Mr. Princes story I could see a lot of my own life. I related to him.

Would you listen to Still Standing again? Why?

The stories concern everyday black women and families and their everyday trials just trying to survive life and it's difficulties. The stories give hope to anyone going through hard times.
The narrator does a great job keeping the stories real and moving. I kept wanting to hear what was going to happen next.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It's hard to pin down one character that stands out. I enjoyed them all and their special life stories.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite story was the last one. I loved life being compared to a torn garment. How rips and tears need to be repaired before they turn into bigger problems.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Because of my busy schedule I had to listen on my drives to and from work.

Any additional comments?

It's a wonderful book.
