    "I just finished Ghost Wars and I think it's one of the best books with FSO characters that I have read. This book has a lot of facts and information in it so it's not an easy read but it's definitely worth reading. "

    "This is one of the better historical novels I have read. The characters are complex and believable. The plot is engaging. There is enough historical information included to give a realistic feel of the time period but not so much that the writing is boring or strained. Overall this book is very interesting and entertaining."

    "Assuming that FSO means Foreign Service Officer, I believe this solution is lacking. The solution does provide an author, publish date, and brief summary. However, there is no guarantee that an FSO will be covered in the book."

    "I read this book on a flight to Seattle to visit my sister. It was pretty interesting and covered why some nations are rich and some are failing. It really makes you think about where you were born and how good you have it compared to others."

    "This is a very interesting story of how the search for energy and the money it generates is what is really driving society. You can see behind the curtain of what goes on in the world of producing what humans need to power their lives and fuel their transport vehicles."

    "I think that this book does not fit into this topic category. I believe that you will find this book to be fascinating and maybe contradicting between the contents and the cover. You might enjoy reading about how the brain works with rapid cognition and developing impulsive decision making ideas."

    "While this book explores the development of governments and political orders, it starts very early in human history (actually, starting with the primates) and takes the reader on a journey that helps explain how societies organize themselves. This really isn't a book with FSO characters, though it is the first volume in a two volume series. Reading this, then the second book in the series, might give better insight into FSOs. It is non-fiction, and does not really have "characters" as a novel would. Not the best choice for this topic. "
