Few have been a member of Donald Trump’s inner orbit longer than Omarosa Manigault Newman. Their relationship has spanned 15 years - through four television shows, a presidential campaign, and a year by his side in the most chaotic, outrageous White House in history. But that relationship has come to a decisive and definitive end, and Omarosa is finally ready to share her side of the story in this explosive, jaw-dropping account.

This book is complete garbage! Omarosa doesn't feel like she is being honest for a single sentence in this book. She starts off explaining how she figured out the psychology of Donald Trump so that she can win The Apprentice and then she goes on for the rest of the book trying to make us feel sorry for her acting like she didn't know the true character of the man that she was working for and through all of this trying to make us feel sorry for her. Worst, she doesn't even have the audacity to ask for forgiveness from the American people. This is the exact reason why we need professional politicians running our country and not reality TV stars. As a black man I bought this book because Omarosa is black and I was hoping she would explain why she as a black person was associated with these misogynistic anti-American racist in the Trump Administration instead I was left with the understanding that she is a opportunist that will gladly sell out her own people for political gain and personal advancement. If you like Omarosa now do not read this book because you won't like her afterwards and if you don't like her and you were hoping to like her after reading this book you won't in fact you will like or even less.

One of the comedy world's fastest-rising stars tells his wild coming of age story during the twilight of apartheid in South Africa and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed. Noah provides something deeper than traditional memoirists: powerfully funny observations about how farcical political and social systems play out in our lives.

This is one of the best biographies I have ever read in fact it might be one of the best books I've ever read and I read. Trevor Noah was really funny and told some very difficult tales and made you laugh at the same time. After listening to this book I thought this would make a great movie but then I thought really what I want to see is a movie about his mom. He could still be a costar but I really want to see the story of his mom.

US Navy SEAL Jim Schweitzer is a consummate professional, a fierce warrior, and a hard man to kill. But when he sees something he was never meant to see on a covert mission gone bad, he finds himself--and his family--in the crosshairs. Nothing means more to Jim than protecting his loved ones, but when the enemy brings the battle to his front door, he is overwhelmed and taken down. That should be the end of the story.

Gemini Cell was a real disappointment. This was my least favorite book of the series and if this is the direction Myke Cole's books are going to take then I won't be reading them anymore. Maybe as a writer his previous storylines were starting to bore him but I hope he gets back to them because if not then the Shadow Ops series had jumped the shark. On a positive note Korey Jackson's performance was as solid as ever, bravo to him.
