This book is alright. Unfortunately it is heavily abridged. There are 6 CDs, while the unabridged copy contains 35 CDs. I read this one first and felt it left something to be desired. After listening to the complete book, I came to realize how important it is to read the complete work. This book is worth the 2 credits. It is unfortunate in our club that we don't yet have a way to recognize a book that would be available on 35 CDs.

A classic Tom Clancy and another Jack Ryan: President Jack Ryan faces a world crisis. A assassination attempt on a high level politician sends anti-terrorism specialist John Clark to Moscow. This is a major conflict between two super powers; Russia and China. It took me a chapter or two to get the feel for this one, but after that, you would have had to pry my hands off this book. A close look at each country's military technology and intelligence. You military guys will love this book, but so will the ladies, I know I did. This is a thrilling story with a super plot and action on every page! It made me a Tom Clancy fan. I didn't realize I started at the rear end of a series! (this novel stands alone, don't feel you have to read the previous books) Needless to say-I went back and found the others and read them too. You will learn a lot about how politics, government and the military function-up front and behind the scenes! I wish Tom Clancy had been my history teacher!
