  • Elizabeth Bahrenburg - Great Wireless SpeakerThis speaker is much better than others at the same price point. Fills any room or outdoor area with great sound, and set-up is real easy. Any complaints about connectivity issues are a connection issue with a poor wireless signal going to the speaker, not the speaker itself. If you have a strong home wireless network, great speaker to buy.
  • julie - bought refurbishedI wasn't sure if I want to buy a used or refurbished tablet period, but I'm so glad I did. First off I loved this tablet from playing around with it in a few store and I feel it's equal to if not better than any iPad or kindle. They Tab is perfect for my mom and she can barely use a computer. She surface the web, watches movies, and listens to her favorites songs. Her keyboard and screen are very responsive and a good size. This was a really great buy and I have no regrets.
  • Happyone - Every bit as good as Killer AngelsEvery bit as good as Shaara's Killer Angels! Peters presents a slightly different view of the Battle of Gettysburg from Shaara, but it is every bit as readable and memorable. Where Shaara used the Battle for Little Round Top and the 20th Maine and Joshua Chamberlain as the focal point of his account of the battle, Peters uses the battles of the first day and the 26th North Carolina and the 26th Wisconsin as the two Regiments he follows. He also portrays the 69th Pennsylvania and the 26th NC again to tell the tale of Pickett's Charge.
    For the high command, Peters follows Longstreet for the Confederates and Meade for the Union. In fact the opening scene in the book is Meade being awaken in the very early morning to be told he is now the commander of the Army of the Potomac. One can tell that Peters really admires Meade and he gives the best possible spin on his actions during the battle. For example the council of war that Meade held on the night of July 2. Peters spins it as Meade's way of getting buy in from his Generals for his plans for the next day.
    Peter's battle scenes are vividly drawn. One can almost hear the thunder of the cannon, the screams of the wounded men and horses, and smell the gunpowder. His scenes in camp with the soldiers are also very good.
    A couple of small quibbles - Peters tends to use military jargon at times (ie- trains for the Supply area, fields of fire and plan of fires). Also, while it is well documented that Longstreet did not want to fight at Gettysburg and definitely did not want to attack, Peters has him bringing up the subject EVERY time he and Lee meet. Somehow, I don't think Lee would have stood for it.
    All in all this deserves to be mentioned with Killer Angles

  • H Goodwin - 2 years later..I managed to lose quite a bit of weight on this program although I have since moved on to different things, but my boyfriend is still going strong 2 years later! He loves (and hates) all of the workouts, especially the cardio. I favored the strength training because, let me tell you, the cardio will kick your ass!

    As an asthmatic, I can tell you first hand that this is not easy on your lungs, and I can't personally recommend it, but if you are healthy, go for it. I had to use my inhaler multiple times, even on Advair, and I came very close to a full blown asthma attack once. Just be very careful.

    The workouts themselves are insane, but not so hard as to discourage you from participating. The first few weeks are hell: Sweaty, painful hell. And then your strength comes. I have never been able to do so many pull ups in my life (25 in a row, no assistance...and I'm a woman) For some reason, I felt confident on this program. I felt like I could do anything after one of Tony's famous 60 minute ass-whoopings!

    Tony is likable and humorous. You can tell he loves what he does, and his passion shines through. Normally, I tend to ignore the hosts of these programs, but he managed to engage me, and a few times, his words actually helped me push through.

    Personally, I found the food program to be totally doable. Some of the recipes were downright delicious (Steak and arugula salad, anyone?) This is definitely not a starvation diet. You will eat well. I think it's excellent because not only does the plan pack on the flavor, it teaches you to see food as fuel instead of a pastime. I usually hate diets, but I felt great on this one, it was quite an easy transition, and it didn't kill my wallet.

    I definitely recommend this for people (like me) who wish to tone up and lose a few pounds, and for people (like my boyfriend) who want to define and strengthen muscle. As lame as it sounds, this was a really fun couple's activity and it gave us a goal to work towards together.

    Try it out!
  • Melissa - I Thought I knew the WHOLE Story...I, like many of the world watched the news of the disappearance and return of Elizabeth Smart. Details, after details emerged over the years-so frankly, I thought I would not find
    this book interesting since I thought I heard it all. After seeing a media appearance Smart gave just recently, I decided to take the chance and download the book- I am glad I did!
    There are several inspiring messages beneath the details that we all can gain. One inspiring message: that despite the past,or personal devastations, we can recapture our happiness and create our lives to be as abundant as we desire! Being a fellow author (Shattered Silence: The Untold Story of a Serial Killer's Daughter) and a survivor, I applaud her courage, and vulnerability to be candid. Her book is beautiful!
