Many books will teach you the essentials of living a good life, but there are some which change your core beliefs for the better. One of the books which have a life-changing effect on readers would be Kaboom: Embracing the sucking in a savage little war. This book was written by Mark Gallagher, who originally started with a blog. Mark’s goal was to inform his friends and family about his experience. He would talk about his involvement in the military and stories, which were good and bad associated with his expertise. In 2008, his blog was shut down by the U.S Army because of the insights and interesting facts about the military. Without giving any spoilers of the book, the stories and experience are thrilling and bone-chilling at the same time.
