After dropping out of the 2016 presidential race, Chris Christie stunned the political world by becoming the first major official to endorse Donald Trump. In Let Me Finish, Christie sets the record straight about his tenure as a corruption-fighting prosecutor and a Republican running a Democratic state, as well as what really happened on the 2016 campaign trail. Christie takes listeners inside the ego-driven battles for Trump's attention and reveals how the literal trashing of Christie's transition plan put the new administration in the hands of self-serving amateurs.

Chris Christie gives us great insight into the political intrigue that went into an unbelievably different type of election and presidency when a non political force like Donald J. Trump is chosen by the people to change the country. Two brash NY & NJ forces; one a highly successful and controversial New York businessman, the other a canny, forceful, Governor and tell it like it is politician. They make tsunami waves with insider politicians, press, and family Insiders. Who knows what successes could have been achieved (or could be) for the country if Christie had become Attorney General; his logical Post in the Trump presidency. I hope the story isn't finished - stay tuned

 In the early hours of a quiet weekend morning in Manhattan's Diamond District, a brutal triple murder shocks the city. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs quickly take the case. Curiously, the killer has left behind a half-million dollars' worth of gems at the murder scene, a jewelry store on 47th street. As more crimes follow, it becomes clear that the killer's target is not gems but engaged couples themselves.

It takes time for the story to develop. Once the story develops it's a riveting story with twists and turns. I hated to see it end

In his landmark best seller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant, in the blink of an eye, that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept?

In a half century on the national stage, William F. Buckley Jr. achieved unique stature as a polemicist and the undisputed godfather of modern American conservatism. He knew everybody, hosted everybody at his East 73rd Street maisonette, skewered everybody who needed skewering, and in general lived life on a scale, and in a swashbuckling manner, that captivated and inspired countless young conservatives across that half century.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

For conservatives that enjoy learning about an Icon of conservatism, this book gives insight from a revealing direction - obituaries & remembrances. I found it fascinating. The language used between friends and foes is so interesting because the words are sometimes archaic & unknown in their meaning. It's a group that very comfortably used language in a formal way - much as was done in earlier centuries. Great stuff!!

Any additional comments?

I loved the way it was written and the way each obituary was introduced with an overview or history of the background between Buckley and the deceased.
