With authoritative reporting honed through eight presidencies from Nixon to Obama, author Bob Woodward reveals in unprecedented detail the harrowing life inside President Donald Trump’s White House and precisely how he makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies. Woodward draws from hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources, meeting notes, personal diaries, files, and documents. The focus is on the explosive debates and the decision-making in the Oval Office, the Situation Room, Air Force One, and the White House residence.

Woodward brings the chaos to the page using words of the parties who uttered them. captures what we all witnessed in the media but demonstrates none of that was fake news. only the president was. saddening, maddening, engrossing. unbelievable. believable.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is a condition in which the individual has an inflated sense of importance. He or she is beyond vain to the point that they are completely obsessed and engrossed with none other than themselves. A narcissist is mentally unable to recognize or even care when their own self-absorbed tendencies are causing great harm to others. Sound familiar?

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.

This amazing experience, hearing Secretary Clinton's connecting the dots of her life through the lens of the 2016 Presidential Election, is not to be missed. Reading it is one thing but hearing her re-tell and in some moments re-live for us steps on the road to today is remarkable. Her details are clear, her analysis easy to follow and understand and her insights searing and unassailable. I want everyone I know to LISTEN to this book. She epitomizes how to live a professional life of pure public service.

In a strange world where Rose McGowan was continually on display, stardom soon became a personal nightmare of constant exposure and sexualization. Rose escaped into the world of her mind, something she had done as a child, and into high-profile relationships. Every detail of her personal life became public, and the realities of an inherently sexist industry emerged with every script, role, public appearance, and magazine cover. The Hollywood machine packaged her as a sexualized bombshell, hijacking her image and identity and marketing them.

I bought meg meekers book in 2006 but didn't really understand how good or important for me it was until this audio rendition. Coleen Marlo's articulation and performance gets an A+++ rating and Meekers 10 rules/steps/elements are priceless.
