I'm a West Point graduate, former Green Beret and a New York Times Bestselling Author. I've sold over five million books. I'm also the Co-Creator of Cool Gus Publishing.

In fiction, I like exploring possibilities, especially that of the human mind.

For my wife and I, our hobby is story and characters. We study it all the time. (less)

Bacevich provides real insight into the relationship we have with our military; which for most Americans is only soundbites and "thanks for your service". I like to respond "thanks for paying your taxes" except that doesn't work so well any more.

Who am I to critique the unique mind of Philip K. Dick. I might have to re-read this. I went in slanted after watching the TV series. The book is quite different from the show, although the core concept is the same. Just a heads up.

“The key to team success is trust”
Bob Mayer said this in an article about indie publishing; he was referring to military ops. This also rings very true in football-missed assignments are more often the result of a lack of trust in the teammate next door than a lapse in memory.”
