Cliff Sims' book is outstanding for the honest and fair way he represents his experiences in the White House. His views are understandably subjective but he's given me the most balanced insight into the people and inner workings of the administration that I've read. Well worth a read.
This was a book I started, was half way through, and then put aside for months. I was frustrated with the vanilla view of a man I hold in contempt. I saw the author as an apologist for Trump, and blind to his self serving cruelty and policy on the run, to suit his own interests. I think the author is a good man whose world view was formed by the conservative religious environment he grew up in. He lists, among others, Jeff Sessions as a mentor. It says a lot. Following his own departure from the White House bubble, he comes to some realisations and conclusions that sum him up. He is an intelligent, good man. I’m glad I read this book but at times found it hard going, probably due to my own views. Give this book a go. It’s well written, honest from the view of a self confessed Trump fan, and offers a view different from most books on the market about Trump. I don’t think Trump would like it so it’s lucky he doesn’t read. This book is far too long for someone with his attention span. I wish the author well, thank him for his effort, and would read this book as an insight into a world foreign to me.
