Para calcular a classificação geral de estrelas e a análise percentual por estrela, não usamos uma média simples. Em vez disso, nosso sistema considera coisas como se uma avaliação é recente e se o avaliador comprou o item na Amazon. Ele também analisa avaliações para verificar a confiabilidade.
I bought the book after watching the Admiral's famous graduation speech. I thought far too much of the book was spent on adolescent stories and not enough content of first person experience in training and in combat operations. The more famous stories are naturally told from the Admiral's perspective as a remote commander and they lack (probably for a good reason) enough details that could have made this a more enjoyable read.
I gave 3 stars because of the swearing throughout. Many other graphic, unpleasant things had to have been left out, so could have the rough language. Completely unnecessary and disappointing as I wanted to share these amazing patriotic stories with my grandsons.
Acronym Overload this book would be 70% less if the writer had just left out all the acronyms and explanations. it could’ve been so much more interesting to just tell the stories and leave out all the names that he wanted to get into his book
Also I find it kind of unbelievable that this one man was responsible for all the major operations that have taken place in his book yet I’ve never heard of him before
I bought this marvelous sounding book as a Christmas gift for just the right person, who I\was am sure would love it. I just got it out for early wrapping only to discover that it came with a ripped dust cover. The return date has expired (Oct. 12), so I am in the very unfortunate position of having to repurchase the book. Certainly can't give it to anyone with a torn cover.
this is a great book, compelling and well written/narrated. but....... there are 8 disks in total, disk #5 was completely corrupted and un-listenable. i don't blame makers of audio disk as amazon has shown no resource for me to contact them after the sale. or am i missing it?
It was good but could be better, probably due to sensitive materials that could not be written at the time. Also too much has been known to public that took away the surprises. However it was still. A good read
