An interesting story of the life of David Petraeus showing how he learned from one assignment and applied the knowledge gained to the next. A good over view of the wars in Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. The book also allow an insight into the sacrifice a high ranking officer wife and family must make. Petraeus's wife was the daughter of a famous General so she knew what was expected of her. The book tried to give a favorable view of the war in Afghanistan but I was left with a feeling we should have approached this problem differently, we expected to much from a tribal culture. Paula Broadwell is a person one should keep an eye out for she may become a leader herself. James Lurie did a good job narrating the story. This is a good book to understand the making of a famous General and to get more in-depth insight into current affairs.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Was All In: The Education of General David Petraeus worth the listening time?
I was hoping to learn about the "military education of Davit Petraus". What I found is some stories from wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. It was a waste of time.
Any additional comments?
I think this book may not be categorised as a Biography. Previously I have read/listened biographies of Seteve Jobs and Albert Einstein. This book can not even be compared to those.
