Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many had given their lives to save him-and he would have readily done the same for them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America's founding to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything-including themselves-for the sake of family, nation, and freedom.

I continue to come back to this book. It's absolutely one of my favorite books. I am a teacher and have actually bought a few copies of this book for students who are graduating and going into the service. Expertly written. Expertly performed. Eye opening stories from members of our elite military! Well done!

In Addicted to Outrage, New York Times best-selling author Glenn Beck addresses how America has become more and more divided - both politically and socially. Americans are now less accepting, less forgiving, and have lost faith in many of the country's signature ideals. They are quick to point a judgmental finger at the opposing party, are unwilling to doubt their own ideologies, and refuse to have any self-awareness whatsoever. Beck states that this current downward spiral will ultimately lead to the destruction of everything America has fought so hard to preserve.

This book is great! I really did enjoy it. I have read many of Beck's books. I love them all. I had a problem with this one, however. Somewhere towards the middle he begins warning the reader in depth about the dangers of AI (Artificial Intelligence). He spends a good portion of the book on it. I found his predictions to be far fetched and unfounded. I also didn't see how it applied to the book. This book was about how we can get the two divided parties in our country to work together. The looming dangers of AI development hardly fits in with that theme. It actively ventured into the waters of "conspiracy theory" for me. Once he gets past it, the rest of the book is great! Everything before that part of the book is great too! I will continue to purchase Glenn Beck's books. Well done.

Thirteen-time #1 national bestselling author Glenn Beck realized years ago that somewhere along the way, his four children had become more focused on Santa than the meaning of Christmas. No matter how he tried, he could not redirect their attention away from presents and elves to the manger instead. Glenn didn't want to be the Grinch who spoiled the magic of Kris Kringle, so he had to find a unique way to turn his kids back toward the true meaning of Christmas. He decided the best place to start was by first turning Santa himself back toward Christ.

I was very skeptical of this book at first. I don't really like people mixing fact with myth. This was very well done, however. Excellent story and it doesn't step on the toes of the Bible either. My opinion, however, is that despite how this book is being marketed as a book you can read to your kids, I would disagree. This book has some really dark moments in it that really young kids will not like or understand. Despite the darker moments, it really does have a great story line and gives you the warm and fuzzy feelings you are looking for. Excellent story. Definitely recommended.
