Just two months into his presidency, Ronald Reagan lay near death after a gunman's bullet came within inches of his heart. His recovery was nothing short of remarkable - or so it seemed. But Reagan was grievously injured, forcing him to encounter a challenge that few men ever face. Could he silently overcome his traumatic experience while at the same time carrying out the duties of the most powerful man in the world?

Where does Killing Reagan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Like others in the O'Reilly, Martin Dugard series, this book is full of research that tells the reader things we didn't know or some of us only suspected. It will take me some time to fully digest and separate the public Ronald Reagan from the historical facts in the book. I'm sure that some people may be put off by some of the material but I found it thought provoking and very timely considering a Presidential election is on the horizon.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Reagan?

The entire book was captivating and had be either shaking my head in disbelief or nodding in confirmation that I got things right when they were happening. I am a Ronald Reagan fan but I now need to revaluate some of the reasons why.

Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff and Bill O'Reilly ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have read or listened to all of Bill O' Reilly's books. The research done by Martin Dugard is truly brilliant and give the reader insight that go beyond the sound bites and fluffed up images we form our opinions on. It is no surprise the Bill started off and a teacher and still is; he just has a bigger class room now.

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

Narcotics officer Cal Moore's orders were to look into the city's latest drug killing. Instead, he ends up in a motel room with his head in several pieces and a suicide note stuffed in his back pocket.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The character Harry Bosch has become one of my favorites. The story line takes many twists and keeps one guessing right to the end. The plot of the story leverages modern criminal drug trade with the politics of law enforcement and a detective that does the right thing even when its against the rules.

What did you like best about this story?

I like the character Harry Bosch, irreverent and unafraid; he get it done.

What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

Wonderful transitions between characters. Dick brings each character to life by giving them their own personalities.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I just enjoy a good mystery

At the outbreak of World War II, the United States was in no way prepared to wage war. Although the US declared war against Germany in December 1941, the country lacked the manpower, the equipment, and the experience it needed to fight. Even had an invasion force been ready, a successful assault on Nazi-occupied Europe could not happen until Germany's industrial and military might were crippled.

Would you consider the audio edition of Hell's Angels to be better than the print version?

A true account of what it was really like to be in a B-17 crew in the dangerous sky's of Europe. They fought as a team and died as a team while slowly eroding the Nazi industrial complex. A great historical account of the Army Air Force.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Hell's Angels?

Unable to choose one over the next. The book rubs the readers nose right into what the air war was like.

Have you listened to any of Robertson Dean’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I will look for more of Mr. Dean's writings.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

As a former Airman, I had noting but respect for the men that got into those B-17's each day knowing that a large percentage would not return.

Any additional comments?

One of the best overall accounts of the air war I have read.

Tucked away in a remote corner of North Carolina's Fort Bragg, behind rows of razor wire and heavily armed guards, lies the headquarters of the nation's most elite counter-terrorism unit - the United States Army's 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment Delta. Here, a brilliant new approach to combating terrorism has just been born. Its codename: The Athena Project.
