    Crossing the Line

    If you like good cop/security/ action thriller... stop by my website. I've published two novels, Crossing the Line and Holding the Line. I think you might like them. I'm a Lieutenant in NJ with 20 years on the job. Stop by and check them out. www.glennrambo.com There are some reviews on Amazon.com as well.
    Stay Safe!!!

    Very good book.

    My books are still packed but off the top of my head .... Night Dogs by Kent Anderson and My Father's Gun by Brian McDonald were both very good. Devil in the White City by Erik Larson and The City of Falling Angels by John Berendt were really good.... true crime mixed with history. Jack Olsen is also a good true crime writer.

    If you want something non crime/cop/mystery check out Christopher Moore..... laugh out loud funny stuff. Try Practical Demonkeeping first.

    Has anybody read Generation Kill by Evan Wright? He was a reporter chronicling his experience with the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion‎ of the United States Marine Corps during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

    Great read

    Vertical Run, by Joseph Garber, for a great "guy book" you won't be able to put down.

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll have to see if I can pick some of these up this weekend. I saw someone mentioned John Grisham. I just finished his Innocent Man and found it pretty good, especially since I'm from Oklahoma and have been to all those towns.

    Just finished "Lone Survivor" by Marcus Luttrell, it is about the operation redwing and seal team 10. one of the best books out there IMO.

    Just finished Benjamin Franklin: An American Life by Walter Isaacson. It's Franklin's detailed autobiography that's well written and follows him from his youth through his contribution in the Revolutionary War and up to his death. There is nothing boring about this book.

    I know this is a little "outfield" but anything by Dr. Wayne Dyer for self help and motivation. I haven't read all of his stuff so take "anything" into consideration but books "Excuses Be Gone" "Manifest Your Destiny" "The Power of Intention" "10 Secrets for Sucess and Inner Peace" are very good for the soul

    Not necessarily about "law enforcement" per se, but you might find them useful. You can find any generic college text to read about being a cop, but experience always beats study in that area. I have enjoyed each of these and found that they had a certain something to offer:

    LAW/COPS & BADGUYS

    Scalia Dissents
    Original Intent
    Slouching Towards Gomorrah
    Coercing Virtue
    The Supreme Court
    Cops
    Bloodletters and Badmen

    MORALITY, CHARACTER, LEADERSHIP

    Our Sacred Honor
    The Death of Outrage
    Vital Remnants
    Machiavelli on Leadership
    Robert E. Lee on Leadership
    The Emperor's Handbook

    GENERAL READING

    Liberty Versus the Tyranny of Socialism
    Hyperspace
    Understanding Physics (Asimov's)
    The World's Great Letters
    The Analects of Confucius
    The Quran
    The Old Testament
    The New Testament
    Who Killed Homer?
    The Conspiracy of Ignorance
    Born in Blood

    SETS THAT ARE PROBABLY IN YOUR LIBRARY

    Encyclopedia Britannica's Great Books (54 volumes... I'm still plodding along through them years after I started!)
    The Harvard Classics (The choices from our side of the Pond!)
    The Story of Civilization
    The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire

    Now, if you are allowed to listen to MP3's (or can manage to do it!) while you walk around, then I highly recommend that you go to the Teaching Company's website and look at their available courses. Each of their lectures is 1/2 hour long, and some of the courses are 30 to 45 hours in total. The lecturers are fantastic, and they have courses on just about every subject you can imagine. If you have an interest in languages, then I would give the same recommendation for the Pimsleur series (in any language).

    I could go on, but if you made it this far without me putting you to sleep I'll be surprised! Good luck!
