A must read for all Americans and great insight about what happened during our election. Mr. Comey seems to be a great leader and American. We need more like him within our Government.

  • Sea Power

From the time of the Greeks and the Persians clashing in the Mediterranean, sea power has determined world power. To an extent that is often underappreciated, it still does. No one understands this better than Admiral Jim Stavridis. In Sea Power, Admiral Stavridis takes us with him on a tour of the world's oceans from the admiral's chair, showing us how the geography of the oceans has shaped the destinies of nations and how naval power has in a real sense made the world we live in today and will shape the world we live in tomorrow.

Admiral Stavridis truly lays out the importance of Sea Power for every body of water. It is both thought provoking and informative. Highly recommend.
