5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific...., October 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really fantastic piece of work. Nordlinger offers a fascinating ride through the 'Heart of Darkness' of the world's worst dictators and how their children have coped with the realities of what they've done. No surprisingly, you have your enablers and your realists among them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Caricature Palin; Read the Book and Decide for Yourself, December 5, 2013
Those who like to caricature Sarah Palin won’t know what to do with Good Tidings, Great Joy. They will try to dismiss it, but will ignore what is at the center of this book: a person with real heart, a love for family, and a deep faith. Palin is bold in her words, but they don’t spring from anger or fear but from a deep and abiding belief that Christmas has become less about Christ. What could be objectionable about that?

5.0 out of 5 stars a superb insider's account, January 20, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's time to stop listening to the pundits talk about interrogation and "torture" and listen to those who actually have saved lives by extracting information from terrorist detainees. We should have gratitude for what these people have done. They have saved thousands of American lives. Thiessen shows how silly and totally off the mark claims are about torture and what really goes on in the interrogation program. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a terrific read!, November 19, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The First Assassin (Paperback)
I've enjoyed John Miller's essays and articles for years. I never knew he had such a wonderful novel in him! The story is masterfully told and the characters are vivid and compelling. For those of us who love getting absorbed in historical fiction you can do no better than this. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hayward is the best historian of the Reagan era, August 25, 2009
No one could do better than to give Hayward's two volumes on Reagan as a gift to a college student, interested layman or scholar. Hayward has the ability to explain the complex realities of federal budgets and geopolitics in a straightforward manner but without being simple-minded. And it captures not just the man, but the spirit of the Reagan era. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars great stories that too few know about..., October 23, 2008
This book provides numerous inspiring stories about individuals who give of their resources to help improve our country. Some of the stories are truly spine-tingling. Consider the man who emigrated to this country, made a lot of money, and then met Ronald Reagan in the White House. He died at the White House with Reagan standing over him. A tragedy....but the man left millions to an organization that years later...purchased the Reagan Ranch to preserve it and make it available for young people to enjoy and learn about Ronald Reagan. And the organization in question, Young America's Foundation, where the authors work, didn't even know the story until after the ranch had been purchased. I highly recommend this book.
