According to the book description of The Lore of the Corps: Quotations By, For and About Marines, “This compilation of quotes was designed to put all of the accolades, wit, wisdom and remarks pertinent to the Marine Corps and the practice of leadership into one volume. Many of them will be familiar, and many will be read for the first time - but they will all stimulate, fascinate and motivate!”

According to the book description of To Err is Human, to Forgive Divine: However Neither is Marine Corps Policy, “In order to survive in the Marine Corps you MUST have a good sense of humor. This collection of military jokes spares no one; terrorists, allies, officers, pilots, and of course our sister services are all fair game. You WILL laugh, and you WILL like it!”

According to the book description of The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday, it “is a collection of stories, essays and politically incorrect commentary by and about the Marines fighting terrorism in Iraq and Afghanistan. It is a "must read" for all Americans who want to know what was REALLY going on over there. Included are reminders of how we became involved in the global war on terror, profiles of the heroes we don't hear about on the news, and tributes to some of our fallen warriors. The letters and e-mails upon which some of these stories are based show how our troops feel about being in harm's way - and show that we still "make them like we used to." It was a privilege compiling these compelling stories of the new "Greatest Generation.”

According to the book description of Salty Language: An Unabridged Dictionary of Marine Corps Slang, Terms and Jargon, it “is the perfect book for anyone with a need to understand Marine Corps lingo. If you have ever wondered about terms like "Cookie Duster," "Big Chicken Dinner" and "Boondoggle" here's your chance to decipher them. Acronyms like ANGLICO, CACO and BOHICA are also defined, as well as "Old Corps" terms like "Battle Pin" and "Comshaw." Get a copy today, before someone gives you the "Green Weenie!" Makes a great gift for your "Alpha Unit" (spouse)!

One reader of Salty Language: An Unabridged Dictionary of Marine Corps Slang, Terms and Jargon said, “Even as a personal friend of Andy Bufalo, I'm totally unbiased. This book is everything a civilian would want or need to understand the day to day language of the Corps....new and old, as well as words and phrases phased in from the Navy. Every young Marine should give this book to his or her spouse (Alpha Unit) so the Marine doesn't have to spend half of his/her downtime explaining what their talking about. This book will definitely keep the lines of communication open within a military family. This book is truly all you'll need and it's compiled simply and clearly to make it an easy read. Job well done "Top". Semper Fi.”

According to the book description of Christmas in the Corps: Holiday stories and poetry by and about Marines, “The holidays have special meaning for those who often spend them far from home. These uplifting, and sometimes humorous, stories and poems will delight everyone in your Marine Corps family!”

According to the book description of Swift, Silent and Surrounded (Marine Corps Sea Stories and Politically Incorrect Common Sense), it “is a wonderful collection of Marine Corps stories that will be enjoyed by everyone. If you liked the "Brown Side Out, Green Side Out" series of books by Major Gene Duncan, or are a fan of the Chicken Soup For the Soul books, you will love this volume of Sea Stories, Marine Corps articles, and politically incorrect commentary. You will swell with pride as you read of the Marines in Iraq, Kuwait and Vietnam, laugh at the antics of some of the Corps' "Nimrods," and perhaps even shed a tear as you learn more about "The Few and the Proud." Contributing authors include Fred Reed, Colonel David Hackworth, James Webb and many others.”

According to the book description of Not As Lean, Not As Mean, Still A Marine! (Marine Corps Sea Stories and Politically Incorrect Common Sense, it “is the third installment of the Swift, Silent and Surrounded series. If you enjoyed the humorous sea stories, motivating narratives and blunt commentary in the previous volumes, you will love this one!”

According to the book description of Reel Marines: The Fifty-One Most Important Films About the United States Marine Corps, “Many great (and not so great) movies have been made about the Marine Corps, beginning with The Star Spangled Banner back in 1917 and even going into the future with Sci-Fi thrillers like Aliens and Independence Day. Most Marines have seen Full Metal Jacket, Sand of Iwo Jima and Jarhead... but what about Wind and the Lion, 55 Days at Peking and Gung Ho!? Reel Marines contains the Plot, Cast, Tagline, Quotes, Release date, Running Time, and some amazing Trivia from the top fifty-one Marine Corps-related films of all time. Also contains synopsis' of an additional 101 movies that didn't make the cut.”

According to the book description of Hollywood Marines: Celebrities Who Served in the Corps, “What do actor Steve McQueen, Country & Western singer George Jones, rapper Shaggy, boxer Ken Norton, "shock jock" Don Imus, TV host Montel Williams, author Robert Ludlum, golfer Lee Trevino, comic Drew Carey and baseball pitcher Tom Seaver have in common? They are all Marines! Hollywood Marines contains profiles and photos of 112 celebrities from the film industry, television and radio, the arts, and the world of sports who served in the Marine Corps. Includes a bonus photo gallery with over sixty additional pictures of your favorite "Hollywood Marines" in action.”

According to the book description of Every Day is a Holiday, Every Meal is a Feast (Marine Corps Sea Stories and Politically Incorrect Common Sense), “Marines jokingly say that "every day is a holiday, and every meal is a feast" in the Corps, but we all know there is more to it than that. And no, I don't mean "every formation is a parade, and every paycheck is a fortune!" Being a Marine is a tough, but rewarding, way of life, and this fourth installment in the "Sea Stories" series takes a look at a lot of those times - along with a liberal dose of knuckleheads and common sense. If you liked the first three, you'll like this one too!”

According to the book description of The Marines Have Landed - Famous People in Government and Business Who Served in the Corps, “What do Senators Jim Webb and John Glenn, Astronauts Story Musgrave and Jack Lousma, and the founders of FedEx, Taco Bell and Domino's Pizza have in common? They are all Marines! THE MARINES HAVE LANDED contains profiles and photos of nearly 100 Governors, members of Congress, astronauts and captains of industry who have served in the Corps.”

According to the book description of Views from the Top: Politically Incorrect Ruminations About the U.S. Marine Corps and a Few Other Things, “Members of the active duty military are prohibited from being politically active and often must suppress their desire to speak out on a variety of subjects such as liberal activists, women and gays in the military, voting, and the legal drinking age. Upon retiring the author - a Master Sergeant of Marines - seized the opportunity to comment on all of those and more, not just for himself, but on behalf of all of those who cannot yet speak out.”

According to the book description of The Older We Get, The Better We Were (Marine Corps Sea Stories and Politically Incorrect Common Sense), “this book contains a collection of humorous sea stories, motivating narratives and blunt commentary. A must-have for the collection of all Marines, friends of Marines, and everyone who is proud to be an American!”
