The Only Thing Worth Dying For: How Eleven Green Berets Fought for a New Afghanistan (P.S.) — Second book in two months I’ve read where soldiers recap their experience. This book had good insights into the Green Berets and the earlier days of the war in Afghanistan. It is a non-flattering report the commanding officers over seeing precision bombing in Kandahar in December 2001, which led to friendly-fire killing of 3 U.S. soldiers and 5 Afghan soldiers.

A Beautiful Mind: The Life of Mathematical Genius and Nobel Laureate John Nash — Enjoyed the movie and now the book.
