  • The Tyranny of Political Correctness on Nov. 17, 2013
    star star star star star
    If you care about the present condittion and future direction of this nation, you owe it to yourself and your children to read this book. A very clear, concise, and direct address to the problems with the Political Correct Movement. The subject is covered well without going of track or becoming political in anyway. Not a biased presentation - only THE FACTS! Excellent read! I read it in two easy sittings. It is not stale and boring, but is interesting and demands your attention. Highly Recommend! NOTE: I have no association with the author WHATSOEVER...don't even know who the man is...this is a unbiased review.
  • The New Adventures of Jim Anthony, Super-Detective on Nov. 20, 2013
    star star star star star
    Excellent Story!! I am a reader of mystery, having read every Sherlock Holmes story and many, many others. This is not Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, but it is VERY GOOD! The tongue in cheek reverences to characters of bygone detective works and radio productions was not lost on me, nor unappreciated. Great job Josh! Very good writing and I enjoyed his style, punchy, but not like a cheap imitation of Philip Marlowe like so many others write. Looking forward to your next book.
  • Vietnam: Reflections of an Interrogator on Dec. 01, 2013
    star star star star star
    This is a good read. Very organized writing process, and well written. I have read many books on the Vietnam War and I still found this informative, interesting, and engaging. There were several new things I learned/read for the first time. Don't expect a shootem up. This is a short narrative, but worth your time. The author's opinion on the war, its execution (or lack thereof), politics, cause, and ultimate outcome is very balanced, sensible, and I deem, in my humble opinion accurate. The only thing I personally wished I could have read is a little more behind the science of interrogation and the process. For this I would give it a 4 1/2 stars.

    Good book! Last 75% was GREAT! Very interesting. Makes me want more. I very much appreciate the enlightenment on some issues of Somalian politics and thought process. Highly recommended!
  • My Story - God Wouldn't Give Up On Me on Feb. 15, 2014

    This man's story is not only personally inspiring, but is an eye-opener that maybe everyone in the "professional" world doesn't have it as "altogether" as it may appears. It is insight into our need as a society for universal compassion. Touching, inspiring, and interesting. Recommended read!
