Really enjoyed this first person account of the US Air Force’s UAV/ Remotely Piloted Aircraft program. The author flew the General Atomics MQ-1 predator and eventually commanded a Predator Squadron overseas. I have been curious about this subject and found the first person style very engaging. The author’s description of the training, the job, the various environments he worked in and the missions really drew me in. I like the style of storytelling and the funny anecdotes peppered through the book. The author’s account of the impact the program had on operations in the field and the lives saved helped me understand the role these aircraft have. I found his account of the hunt for and killing of a terrorist in Afghanistan particularly sobering. He described his emotional struggle with this mission and others like it very well. Thank you for the lack of profanity. Great direction and narration.

Enjoyable book on life in TOPGUN

Liked this book. It’s about helping you to create moments during your busy life and about being more intentional in doing this. I found it more freeing than other Christian books.

Enjoyed the book, especially that it was written by the author. He’s likeable and tells the story well. It starts a little slow but picks up towards the end. I’d recommend Astronaut Mike Massimino’s book ‘Spaceman’ over this one though, more emotion and higher stakes.

Great! But, listen in parts

Great book by Mark Batterson. Thank he presentation style is clear but almost like a good computer generated voice and was a little off putting initially. What is amazing is how God did speak to me as I read this book. It is packed with really great illustrations and anecdotes you’ll want to bookmark to come back to or share with your friends and family. It is the book, Audible’s app was invented for. It is high yield, but can be a bit dense, so listen for a bit, make notes, take a break and think about it. Then come back for more later. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn how to hear the voice of God. Enjoy.
