A history from WW II until the present

I was very impressed by this book. It first talks about the courage people had to stand up to the tyrants of WW II. It talked about why we could not be isolationist and had too help England because it was not being short sighted. Then it explained was each of the Presidents did during the Cold War and why it was significant.
Then it talked about post Cold War and the new threat we had to face with the various terroir eat group.
Next it went into all the things Obama is doing to destroy America. By the end of this book you think that he should be prosecuted for treason. At least that is what I thought.
The last part is about what the next president has to do to fix it and u can tell you it is a lot. I really thought it was an enjoyable and would highly recommend it to find out was is really going ion in this country.

Every American should read this book.

What did you love best about Exceptional?

It is a clear eyed and sober assessment of current national security and foreign relations policy.

What other book might you compare Exceptional to and why?

Thomas Sowell's Practical Economics. it has the same fact based, logical and consistent approach to the issues it addresses.

What about Liz Cheney and Dick Cheney ’s performance did you like?

It was low key, which helped to minimize what could otherwise have been a partisan tone.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The summary by Vice President Cheney.

A BOOK OF COMMON SENSE

Another home run by the Vice President, aptly aided by his daughter. Let's hope the next President follows the recommendations.

Honest, Concise Narrative That Justifies Exception

Loved it. Almost all content I had heard at one time or another, but what a great summary that reveals the timeline, the context.

Fair and Balanced with Truth

I honestly appreciated this book. Thank you Vice President Cheney and Liz Cheney. Your words of wisdom and warning are much needed to be said. It's about time a book is written that explains the path of distraction our current president has put us on. I believe every American should take time to listen or read this book. You will have a better understanding of the chronological events that have happened that need immediate attention. The book reminds us of how "Exceptional" we as American truly are!

Great!

enjoyed this book. I hope a conservative POTUS finds each opportunity to point out Obama's stupid mistakes in foreign policy.

Good if you want to understand neocons

This book consists of three major themes:

1. A short American Exceptionalist view of modern US history from WW2 to today.

2. Dick Cheney addressing the many criticisms against him on the Iraq war, torture, and mass spying.

3. Fox News esc Obama bashing with absurd biases. Cheney even takes the chance to promote fossil fuels and burning coal. 😒 To strengthen our security with our allies of course.

Overall a pretty solid book if you want to get into the head of and understand the philosophy of a war criminal oligarch.

A must read to understand Obama's legacy & failure

An excellent book detailing what Obama and his administration did to the United States in 8 years, particularly in defense. A highly recommended read - Ronald Reagan would be spinning in his grave if he knew how that man undermined his 1980s accomplishments.
