It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

Would you listen to The Amateur again? Why?

I bought both the e-book as well as the audible version; because of all of the cross referenced details I found the e-book easier to follow.

What other book might you compare The Amateur to and why?

It's similar to The Price of Politics.

What about John McLain’s performance did you like?

Excellent reader and easy to listen to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

What the President's friends say behind his back!
