Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyable read! This book was a good read, the subject was very well researched and presented in a manner that made the book hard to put down. It is very interesting to view the different perspectives of people involved in conflict situation, some are giving their life to save lives, others unfortunately are just trying to save face and will do anything to accomplish that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Impressive amount of detail. A very real and tragic story, which makes one wonder "is there a lot more behind White House doors that need revealing"? A great read, and a great "page~turner".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Jon Krakauer did it again! This is an amazing book that'll keep you questioning everything right from the start. Pat Tillman has quite a story that can surprise most people like me. I don't have much of an interest in football but Tillman's change in character throughout the book really grasped my attention. Krakauer masterfully told the legacy of Pat Tillman for us to learn from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A True Hero I love sports. I do not retain the name of the players and all time money makers as I feel that in most cases, athletes are held up on a pedastol and handsomely reimbursed. This story of Pat Tillman is an amazing tribute to the life of a true hero. Someone who had integrity, character and values that all people should apsire to in life. The story is tragic, but as well know, life is not a fairytale and his courageous decision should be highly regarded and recognized. He dares to do what so little of us could ever and is the reason we remember - we remember those who fought for our freedom. Truly an inpsirational book that made me reflect on myself and what I would do for those who need help. Jon Krakauer shows his ability to not only to tell stories but show his ability as an intellectual author who researches and has carefully thought how his book. I honestly thought that perhaps he had help writing his book Ìnto Thin Air when I first read it, but he has shown to me his true talent in writing.
