In 1979 a secret unit was established by the most gifted minds within the U.S. Army. Defying all known accepted military practice -- and indeed, the laws of physics -- they believed that a soldier could adopt a cloak of invisibility, pass cleanly through walls, and, perhaps most chillingly, kill goats just by staring at them.

Entrusted with defending America from all known adversaries, they were the First Earth Battalion. And they really weren't joking. What's more, they're back and fighting the War on Terror.

With firsthand access to the leading players in the story, Ronson traces the evolution of these bizarre activities over the past three decades and shows how they are alive today within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and in postwar Iraq. Why are they blasting Iraqi prisoners of war with the theme tune to Barney the Purple Dinosaur? Why have 100 debleated goats been secretly placed inside the Special Forces Command Center at Fort Bragg, North Carolina? How was the U.S. military associated with the mysterious mass suicide of a strange cult from San Diego? The Men Who Stare at Goats answers these and many more questions.

Ronson's Them: Adventures with Extremists, a highly acclaimed international bestseller, examined the paranoia at the fringes of hate-filled extremist movements around the globe. The Men Who Stare at Goats reveals extraordinary and very nutty military secrets at the core of George W. Bush's War on Terror.

This is a very strange book. It seems to have been written by a guy who does not want to trust the military. This is a book filled with anecdotes about the United States military attempting to use mind control, psychic assassination, remote viewing, and other ideas from science fiction in order to help them win wars. From the very beginning this book discredited itself for me because it opens with an interview with Uri Geller.

Let me first say that this audiobook has the best narrator ever. His voice is perfectly suited to the serious yet ridiculous nature of the text. But of course, I loved The Men Who Stare at Goats for more than its narrator - the content of the book is a fascinating, bizarre, and disturbing exploration of the American military that, much like Ronson’s The Psychopath Test, will have you cracking up one minute and pondering important issues the next. Overall, this is an intensely interesting, hilarious, and thought provoking book, and I highly recommend it.
