Good selection if you are doing detailed factual research on current events and politics. Say for a school paper or a letter to the editor. Or to argue your point w/your brother in law at the next family gathering. As a general interest read, while this book attempts to set out the facts, in doing so becomes a little too wide-ranging and disjointed. If you follow the daily current events in the newspaper and radio, most of the topics presented here you've probably already heard. Professor Johnston's prior book "Free Lunch" presents a more coherent and approachable view of his thesis on current day US national politics in my opinion.

David Cay Johnston has been following and writing about Donald Trump for many years. This book has many details about Trump's financial investments and problems. Johnston also deals with Trump's speeches and tweets, many full of contradictions. A favorite passage from the book: "That millions of people voted for a narcissistic, know-nothing con artist who has spent his entire life swindling others while repeatedly urging followers to commit criminal acts of violence against his critics reveals more about America than about Trump."

Read it and weep. The book should have a barf bag included.
