Very well written and told in the droll but amusing way of the Dilbert character! If you hate Donald Trump you'll discover why he won. If you love him then you'll discover why he won. But much more importantly you'll discover that feelings come first and trump facts every time!

First off, I'm a big fan of Scott Adams' work. Part of my morning routine when I wake up is to get coffee and go to dilbert.com for a good chuckle before heading off to drudge for today's dose of depressing news. I follow him on Twitter, and I occasionally check out his periscope videos.
If you've followed Adams for several years, particularly the past year and a half, this book provides no new information. In fact, it almost assumes you're much dumber than the average reader by explaining common sense concepts.
It'd also have been better of Scott didn't narrate the book himself. His voice makes Ben Stein seem energetic, and it is almost like he got bad advice from the Audible production folks to a point where he just sounds monotone and lifeless.
I would unbuy this book if I could.

This is one of those books that needs a second listen, because once you’ve listened to it once, you’ll start spotting the various ways the author is using those techniques on you as the listener, which brilliantly reinforces the point.
Every time I thought to myself, ‘Erm, isn’t this whole thing confirmation bias on a grand scale’, I would be pulled off track with some self deprecation followed by a continuation of the original train of thought. It all goes in a very specific direction, and it’s extraordinarily playful so that you are sure not to be with the author all the time ... until he pulls it back, and you’re right there with him again. Beautifully illustrating the very point he’s making.
I think it will sell better than the Bible.
Or at least be as respected as the Bible.
Or at least it will be a classic, ranked with books like ‘How to win friends...’
That’s my prediction anyway. And I’m very certain the truth is somewhere in that direction...

In our world, persuasion is far more important than facts and on an equal level with truth, if you want to achieve anything, this book will set you up in such a way that you can navigate the maze of success with much greater ease.

Scott Adams predicted every major twist and turn of the election in real time during the year and a half run-up to the US presidential election. That's no fluke. This book gives a detailed insight into what he saw that nobody else did when looking at the same thing - time and time again. A highly recommended book.
