I have an Autistic 9 year old... he is our youngest.
Humorous, Factual, Entertaining
The book is fast paced, with constant changes that keep the attention of even someone with extreme ADHD focused for long periods of time.
Bill Clinton is brought to life in this book in a way that helps you love the former President all over again... and for once... it wasn't about him.
You may have been born here but you should still go back where you belong.
No matter your political leanings this book tells things that persons from both sides of the aisle need to know. There is more in life then just labels and our President has a reason for not alwasy doing things in a way that is successful. It is because he is AN AMATEUR.
No, I don't think I would. I'm no fan of Obama, but this book was too much of a one-sided hatchet job even for me.
I don't know.
The tone of voice was annoying. Every sentence was read as if it was the most damaging smoking gun anyone ever discovered about any president. One attack followed by another attack followed by another attack... just present the information.
Yes. Learned about some of the power struggle for the Presidents trust/need that goes on inside the White House.
Not really. I can summarize 6 hours of audio book in a few sentences.
Obama is a Politician: he uses people to get what he wants.
Obama trusts his Chicago people in his administration more than his non-Chicago people.
Obama will drop you like a hot potato if what you've done will come back to him negatively.
Obama is cold inside, only interested in himself, will cut people who helped him win the Office if his very close black chicago advisors/administrators say to.
Not much else of a story to tell here. Book could have been 1-2 hours long.
Who is John McLain?
Not really. Should have been a 1-2 hour book. Nothing shocking here about a Politician.
A politician acts like a politician. What's so new about that? Did you think Obama was not a Politician at heart?
This should be required reading for all voters. It explains some of the seemingly irrational and sometimes rediclulious actions of this Administration. The bok is, in general, eye opening as to why we are in the mess we are in in America.
It is the truth. No fluff, just the truth. No spin... Just the truth.
Obama.... the fraud
1st. (only one I've listened to so far)
When I learned that his adviser, Valerie Jarrett, has no clue & won't allow anyone with a clue speak to ba-Rock.
Truthful and damning.
Facts consistent with the headlines and stories available to anyone watching or reading the news.
The ease of listening and getting the material while traveling cross country.
The "vetting" of a president.
Great book full of facts and good research.
I enjoyed listening to the book immensely- the reader, John McLain was excellent and the story was very well researched and documented for facts. Like so many Audible fans, I found myself sitting in my driveway listening, putting it on my portable speaker and taking it with me. I felt as though I was privy to a very intimate look into who Obama really is and how he got to this pinnacle without any qualifications what-so ever! Mr. Klein professionally took on the task of revealing Obama and his White House for what it is: Smoke and Mirrors, unprofessional, inexperienced and with enough hubris and arrogance to suffice for 4 presidents! I especially liked that no one quoted in the book has come forth to discount what was said- no one has objected and the author lists all of his resources, all 200 of them in the back of the book and they are impressive! The Clintons were one of my favorite stars of the book- pulling no punches with their utter disdain for Obama and his tactics! You will enjoy this book and in my opinion more liberals should read it-instead of poo pooing it... they need to see who it is they are really supporting- and it just might change their minds! Great Listen! Thanks!
Smoke & Mirrors: The Obama House of Cards
I would like to have seen the media pick this book up and review it on its merits- true reporting, discovery and revelation. These are news and reporting virtues in this country that seem severely crippled and that is wrong. The people have a right to know the truth about those men and women who lead them- facts are what we would like to see and hear and we will draw our own conclusions. I believe The Amateur the Obama White House has those facts, researched and documented, and it was a pleasure listening to someone report with credibility to the American people exactly who, sadly, it is we have in the White House.

The facts that everyone should know about this true amateur who should have never been elected president. Now that he has, he should be impeached before he does more damage to this GREAT Nation or the rest of the world!
3 words..... Amazing, truthful and addictive!
The facts and storytelling sucks you in wanting more!
The entire book!
Yes, I have listened to it 3over times now.
As I said, AWESOME!!
