Marine Corporal Sean Nichols is wounded in a devastating ambush that takes the lives of his three friends and leaves him an amputee. If not for the heroism of his sergeant, Deke Tilman, who pulled him out of the road, Sean would have surely died with his fire team. With the help of Deke, Sean now embarks on his next mission - recuperate from his serious injuries, and visit the families of his fallen comrades as he tries to make peace with such profound loss.

This performance was simply exceptional. Mr. Martinson did a great job bringing the characters to life and Mr. Salkin's writing is just outstanding. I could see this story as a movie, and I think it really needs to be.

Was Jesus the invention of a Roman emperor? The author of this ground-breaking book believes he was. Caesar's Messiah reveals the key to a new and revolutionary understanding of the origin of Christianity, explaining what is the New Testament, who is the real Jesus, and how Christ's second coming already occurred.

The method storytelling that was used to create the fiction character Jesus Christ is called typology. Everyone knows (or should know) that Superman is really Jesus Christ, and there are many other characters that we see in Hollywood that are based on Jesus Christ or some other biblical character. It's not new that people are using this form of storytelling, but what is new that nobody ever realized that Jesus Christ is also just a character based off of other characters. Sure, we've known that Jesus has parallels to Moses, but Joseph Atwill proves that Jesus' ministry perfectly aligns with the military campaign of Titus Flavius. Along with many other clues, Atwill has proven that Jesus Christ is nothing but a character concocted in the minds of the Flavians and Alexanders, with the help of Josephus. This is a must listen, and the narrator did a fantastic job bringing this information to life. Joseph Atwill has done the world a real service. Thank you.

Are you an author struggling to find time to write? You've worked eight grueling hours at the day job, walked the dog, done the dishes, and put the little ones to bed. How do you still complete your writer to-do list after all of that? It might seem like there's never enough time, but you can find a way to create. You can publish regularly while balancing all those other tasks in your life.

It's real easy for us to caught up in the daily grind and slowly but surely lose sight of our dreams. Jim shows you that you don't have to let go of your dreams at all. He teaches you how to juggle, and it really isn't that difficult. You just have to want it. From beginning to end his audiobook is loaded with tips on how write the novel (or series of novels) you always wanted to, even if your job and family are taking up a lot of your time. Thank you Jim.

How can revival impact your everyday life? Maybe you've thought revival is for "super-charged" Christians - not for everyday people going through everyday life. Wrong. God wants your everyday to be overflowing with Holy Spirit power. Do you feel like there is more to being a Christ-follower than rhetoric, rules, and regulations? The truth is, you were created for a dynamic relationship with the living God. Don't settle for scattered showers when there is a great outpouring available.

The world more than ever needs believers to reach out to God and ask for the rain. This is the rain of the holy spirit that has the power to change towns and cities, and has provably done so as you will learn in this book. Could the rain of the holy spirit change the course of a nation? Of course! This is God we're talking about! ...but we have to collectively ask for. Get this audiobook right now and learn how its been done in the past, so we can do it in the future. Hopefully, the near future. We need God.

Do you hope to be coached or be a great coach? Or wish that your organization could execute its coaching mandate? Mark Colgate's 8 Moments of Power is the missing piece for those hoping to orchestrate a coaching change. In this engaging book, Colgate takes us on a journey with humorous stories, case studies, and pragmatic frameworks, while examining how organizations can create a coaching system that designs for, and delivers, continuous feedback that simultaneously increases employee and customer engagement.

The word coaching is so far removed from the corporate landscape that I thought this book was about sports. After you listen to this book you'll understand what a big problem that is. Coaching and corporation/business should go hand-in-hand. Coaching is the missing ingredient in any plan to achieve excellence in business.

If you could imagine being able to download the best advice from a wise old sage who has lived a long and wonderful life, then that is a perfect picture of what this book is. There's great advice in this book for so many areas of life. It's the kind of audiobook that you'll want to listen to several times over the next few years, so that all the information really sinks in. Well worth the purchase.

I'm reminded of the Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot and Wholeness and the Implicate Order by David Bohm. Our reality is both objective and, in a very subtle way, subjective; whereas, the astral plane is more subjective in its appearances, but underlying that there is a very real alternate reality.

The author does a great job of explaining a strange and complex subject in terms that anyone can understand. This is an excellent audiobook for those who know that there is much more to existence than what we see with our physical eyes.

Prepare for lots of drinking. There's a great story here of what it's really like to be a Marine, and a big part of that is being around your brothers and enjoying a few beers...or more than a few beers. :)

The sound effects were a real nice touch. You can really get the feeling that you're crammed into the tank hunting the enemy right alongside Sergeant Russell Vineyard and his zombie corpse finger (you'll understand when you listen).

This is just a fun audiobook all around. Highly recommended and well worth the investment.

Gentlemen, this is the only book you'll ever need to have a great time at a strip club. Some guys are intimidated by the strip club atmosphere (and as well they should be), and some guys think they're just a place where you throw money away, but that's only if you don't know what you're doing. Strip clubs can be like taking a much needed vacation for the struggles of life...a vacation you can take every weekend, or even multiple times a week. You can afford the strip club if you understand how it works. Get this audiobook and enjoy the ride.
