Number one, hire a narrator.

Number two, don’t exaggerate,

Number three, don’t be a braggart,

Number four, never lie.

The book had some good points and procedures. Unfortunately the author/narrator was not fun to listen to. We bought the book because we believe in the content, you don’t need to build up our belief through exaggeration.

Hopefully, audible will let me trade this book in for something else.

Her marriage fell apart. She was raising two kids on her own. A traumatic encounter with her bishop, betrayed by the religion she had devoted her life to, mistreated and judged by those closest to her, she walked away. While finding herself bitter, alone, sad, and yet, in the midst of this, finding the love of her life, a series of miraculous events brought her to a choice: To stay where she was or come back to the fold.

In this essential new book, self-protection expert and former military intelligence officer Tim Larkin changes the way we think about violence in order to save our lives. By deconstructing our assumptions about violence - its morality, its function in modern society, how it actually works - Larkin unlocks the shackles of our own taboos and arms us with what we need to know to prevent, prepare for, and survive the unthinkable event of life-or-death violence.

The instances of asocial violence are all around us and they continue to grow in number daily. People have forgotten how to deal with conflict and failure. Often times, when they cannot deal they resort to violence to get their way.

This book is a fantastic lecture and entertaining read on the subject and how to protect yourself from a confrontation that could end your life as you know it. I will be getting extra copies for my children.

An unexpected visitor implores her to take on one last impossible task.

Mark Goodwin had a good story going. Then chapters 25 through 27 allowed a 12-year-old soap opera writer with no tactical experience or life experience to begin to write his story. It’s very sad.

Unfortunately for those of us who enjoy reading war, crime, police, espionage thrillers this protagonist was a ditz. It’s not much fun to read about a ditz.

This book especially was written based on emotion and not good logic. Especially since the protagonist gained so much experience in the last two books.

It is like Mark Goodwin just got tired and wanted to finish the series.

Through prudent planning, Texas protected its power grid from the impact of the devastating electromagnetic pulse attack, but was it enough? The new nation is but an island surrounded by chaos and devastation. Food is running out for its nearly 30 million citizens while millions of refugees press against the border fencing erected to keep them out. The pressure is on and an unexpected catalyst is about to create havoc for all Texans, including the Armstrong Ranch.

On his last combat deployment, Lt. Cmdr. James Reece's entire team was killed in an ambush that also claimed the lives of the aircrew sent in to rescue them. But when those dearest to him are murdered on the day of his homecoming, Reece discovers that this was not an act of war by a foreign enemy but a conspiracy that runs to the highest levels of government. Now, with no family and free from the military's command structure, Reece applies the lessons that he's learned in over a decade of constant warfare toward revenge.

Thank you for an audible book that completes a story! Well worth the money. Very tired of the 7-8 hour authors writing segments of a story that end up costing $70 to finish!!

Excellent and believable fact based thriller. Great narration and great character descriptions.

The biased, snowflake reviews based upon the facts that their chosen party was not represented as heroes, only makes the book better. Remember, it’s a novel.

These are the books that help me sleep good at night.

Until the next one! Looking forward to it.
