"Paying the Piper" is worth the price of admission. The rest is just gravy.

Must own Military Sci-Fi from a guy who was at the sharp end. I love the fact that he draws upon historic campaigns as the bones of his plots. This series is perfect for re-reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adult math review done right!, Sept. 14 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book should have died out long ago, except....it is the best review workbook for basic math that I have found. Why try to reinvent the wheel, when this book is perfect. It covers all the basics, and combined with NP 3, takes students right up through linear equations and cartesian graphing. The majority, nearly 100% of my adult learners break down at fractions operations coming into the AW Math 11 course. NP 2 and 3 bridge that gap successfully for even LD students. They also cover exactly the same topics as the AWM11, except for the trig, in a basic form. Once the foundation is solid, the higher level work is doable, and the students know it is. If time allows, you could throw in NP4 Geometry. Also excellent.

This is a classic quirky movie that shouldn't have worked - but did - and does! One of my "must haves" in action adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect adult learner basic grammar review., Sept. 14 2014
This is my "go to" workbook for basic grammar, usage , and mechanics of English review. Lesson blocks are short, clear, and concise, while the exercises are well thought out, targeted, and extremely relevant. This makes for an excellent springboard into Communications courses, as it lays a solid foundation to build upon.

I will be rereading this several times in the future. Must have for military Sci-Fi fans. I wonder if they could make a movie, or six out of this? If they didn't mess with the stories, it could be huge!

5.0 out of 5 stars EPIC!, June 23 2014
This is the current "best thing on TV". From the writer of the original books, to the screenwriters that adapted it, to the producers, director, crew, costumes, sets, actors, there is no comparison to anything else. Alas the pale shadows that fools watch....

This review is from: China Beach Season 3 (5 DVD) (DVD)
Gets you in your gut TV. Even today, this series is completely tied to human experience and will never be "dated".

I even like the parts that stray from the book. They were done for the right reasons, and just add to the tale. Visuals stunning as always from these folks.
