    Washington DC is seen as controlled by special interest and insular. This has led to politicians who promote themselves as being outsiders who are not a part of DC culture. Experience in governing is not appreciated as necessary for government to be effective. Donald Trump was elected ...

    I'm no fan of Donald Trump. I have grown to almost pathologically distrust almost all politicians, regardless of party, and I was born and raised in New York City, so I grew up knowing that he was a con-man. I spent years seeing Trump pop up on the local news every night, on Lifestyle...

    I enjoyed learning more about each of the ridiculous cabinet members that Trump has appointed. It is like a collections of fools, evil-doers, and just plain greedy bastards. Well researched book. Enjoyable. ...

    If you haven't been reading details about the Executive branch these past 3 years, this is a great summary of what went "right" and what went wrong and who the players are. Easy to read, startling, and a good overview. ...

    The Best People sets out to explore the cabinet of Donald Trump and the myriad of scandals that have engulfed the members to a portion not seen since the Teapot Dome scandal of the 1920?s. This book follows each cabinet position and their tenure looking at what they did right and wha...

    The author makes no pretense of this being an objective, detached evaluation of Trump and his cabinet. Of course, many would say that it is an objective account, but one that properly communicates the disgust and condemnation that having such people in powerful positions SHOULD evoke. ...

    If you follow the news, there will not be much new to you here. There are some behind the scenes observations, more on top staff than cabinet members, but these can be found in more detail in other accounts. There are observations that should be pointed out more often. For instance ...

    A solid 3...possibly 3 1/2 stars.. The problem these days is the constant changing news cycles where details get lost or forgotten when a newer "shiny object" or "crisis" occurs. This book allows one to see /recall the news on various cabinet members of the Trump administration. W...

    The Best People has to be one of the worst books I've read in a while... guess that just makes me a looser... As a part of my reading challenge for this summer, I had to read something by or about something that came from a different belief system than my own. I wanted to read this ...

    I might have found it more interesting if I had not been following events (and scandals) as closely as I do. It lacked solidity, reading more like a series of magazine or newspaper articles with language that was too casual and, at times, "insiderish". A result of a rush to print? ...

    At first, I liked this book a lot. I enjoyed reading about people I have seen on the national stage. But then about midway in the book it turned to a trump bashing book. The author even went so far as to attempt to bash Ronald Reagan. Therefore, only three stars and no recommendation. ...

    Well written book primarily centered on the Trump appointees to the Cabinet and their first 1-2 years, depending on how long they lasted. This book is researched and documented with historical comparisons to cabinet members from past presidents, both Republican and Democratic. A fast r...

    This was hilarious and filled with little tidbits that you and I seemed to have forgotten took place in real life that (but for the fact that Donald J. Trump was shockingly voted president of the most powerful country on earth) would be simply unbelievable and horrifying. I found this ...
