The mission seems simple enough: Extract a pharmaceutical magnate from Russian soil. But nothing is as it appears to be. A desperate call thrusts Captain Tucker Wayne and his stalwart military dog, Kane, into a frantic race to rescue the brilliant-but-deluded Abram Bukolov from a cadre of skilled assassins. Hunted and betrayed at every turn, Tucker and Kane must discover the truth behind a horror out of the ancient past that can be weaponized to terrorize the modern world. As time rapidly runs out, the deep and intimate bond between dog and soldier will be tested to the extreme.

Mitch Rapp is used to winning. But in this follow-up to number-one New York Times best-selling The Survivor, the CIA operative finds himself chasing false leads from continent to continent in an effort to keep Pakistani nukes from falling into the hands of terrorists. Together with friend and colleague Scott Coleman, Rapp struggles to prevent the loss of these lethal weapons, particularly because Russia is also interested in the nukes, though not for the same reason as Rapp and Coleman.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A GOOD STORY LINE AND MORE ACTION. THE STORY WAS REALLY DIFFICULT TO FOLLOW AND BORING. WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?

Has Endymion turned you off from other books in this genre?

ABSOLUTELY

Would you listen to another book narrated by Victor Bevine?

Robert had worked with Simon for decades, and their relationship was fraught with conflict. But he never imagined he would wind up as the prime suspect for his colleague’s murder. As the evidence stacks up against him with frightening speed, he quickly falls from his respected position to that of a criminal dragged through the tabloids.

There just isn't enough time for everything on our to-do list - and there never will be. Successful people don't try to do everything. They learn to focus on the most important tasks and make sure those get done. They eat their frogs. There's an old saying that if the first thing you do each morning is eat a live frog, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're done with the worst thing you'll have to do all day. For Tracy, eating a frog is a metaphor for tackling your most challenging task - but also the one that can have the greatest positive impact on your life.

What made the experience of listening to Eat That Frog! the most enjoyable?

It's pragmatic. Simple concepts explained easily. I have a Master's degree but don't need more theory. This book is easy to implement.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not relevant.

What about Brian Tracy’s performance did you like?

He did it himself and did an excellent job.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
