Game of Thorns by Doug Wead

I did not enjoy reading this book.

When I read a political book that touts "the inside story", I want to read the inside story of the political machine. I'm not at all interested in pulling out every single negative story about President Bill Clinton. While it may have a bearing on Hillary's campaign, I did not see the connection. I felt like Doug was simply bringing all the horrible things as a reminder as to why Hillary is such a horrible person.

That section of the book did nothing for me in wanting to read about how the Clinton campaign operated. The next section about the Trump campaign was all sunshine and goodness as if President Trump and his team could do no wrong. Any mistakes or missteps were portrayed as minuscule.

This is not a book written in civility. This is a hit-piece against the Clintons and a praise-piece for Trump.

Do not read this book if you're looking for an unbiased analysis of the Trump vs Clinton contest.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by Center Street Publishing.
