Why did I read this?  Because I have read all of the Reacher novels and really enjoyed them.

A series of stories that cover a wide range of time.  Stories of Reacher from when he was in middle school to the current day.  These stories show why Reacher is who he and how he became to be the man he is today and all the different influences that have shaped him.  As a former military brat I could relate to some of the stories of Reachers’ early life.  If Lee Child is not a former military brat, he talked to someone who was to picture that so vividly.
