    On October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union successfully launched Sputnik I, the first artificial satellite into orbit around the Earth. Little more than a month later, the Soviets launched Sputnik II. News of Sputnik created panic in Washington, D.C. Within days, the U.S. military began a madcap race to space full of crashes, skullduggery, and backstabbing - until Eisenhower's secret civilian program surpassed the Soviets by putting the first American, a hero monkey named Gordo, into orbit.

    Ein schonungsloser Blick auf Donald Trump. Es ist höchste Zeit, sich ernsthaft mit Donald Trump auseinanderzusetzen. Michael D'Antonios brillant geschriebene Biographie zeigt Trump in seinem ganzen Größenwahn, Narzissmus und seiner unfassbaren Selbstverliebtheit. Gleichzeitig wird deutlich, wie erschreckend dünnhäutig und aggressiv Trump auf jede Kritik und Provokation reagiert und wie emotional instabil er ist. Es lässt sich nur erahnen, wie schwierig die außenpolitische Abstimmung mit ihm als möglichem Präsidenten werden könnte.
