Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

This was an awesome book to listen to. It seems like Tom Clancy, with Grant Blackwood, has hit another one over the fence. The best part of this book is that the plot, with exceptions as always, actually seems somewhat plausible. He has gotten back to his roots and written a great novel that deserves a place "on your shelf" along with Rainbow Six, Sum of All Fears and Red Storm Rising.

This book is extremely basic. If you're new to investing or simply want to gain a little knowledge of investing strategies, then this is the book for you. I would otherwise avoid using a credit on/purchasing this book.
A lot of talk about the various strategies that are out there, Dogs of the Dow, GARP, etc. He even touches on the amount of time value investing and the other deep research strategies will take someone to complete.
The reading style is a little... "simple". He sounds like he's talking to a 10 year old about investing rather than reading a book with a lot of good information to an adult audience.
