book is very thorough with a lot of research and a lot of documents that I never seen before on the event in 1903 in Chisinau.
reading is excellent and flows very well for each chapter and I finished the book in a couple days.

Only problem in the book is I've been in the town in 2019. I think the author is very harsh on the town as being kind of slow and decrepit.

No one is innocent whether it be Trump, Comey, or Clinton. The author does a thorough job of historical timeline of the Russia probe facts. I didn't see the part discussed where Steele sold the dossier to the media. The Cohen visit to Europe is still a mystery.

I like the book. I thought the author did well done research into the other trading scandals and walked us through a timeline of how the events occur and the pressures the stock Traders felt. It's unfortunate that Steve Cohen did not comment on the book but that is understandable. The atmosphere with the attorneys is exactly like I see it all the time. Nobody wants to lose a case and everybody wants to appear tough.

I was surprised to see the book The Well on a lot of the history of the early decade after 9/11. It was well thought out and clear and gave insight to many of the decisions that happened during the bush and Obama as a residency. the Trump portion is a small portion of the book. It doesn't reveal much that has not already been in the Press.

the book was exceptionally fun to read and I enjoy the narrator. They may not be hundred percent accurate but that's okay it feels in a lot of ideas of what actually happened which seem to make sense.
