Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Absolutely, it explains more about what President Trump did for years to prepare himself to run in the 2016 election. Knowing who the other players in the election were and what they did to not win the final vote reassures that we made the right choice...we picked a very intelligent winner.

nothing was more interesting than the election. this book tells us some inside stories that we wouldn't hear otherwise.

The bulk of this is just a blow for blow recap of the 2016 US election, there are however a few very interesting bits. The lies of Ted Cruz, Huma's background and possible spy link, the investigation into Stone, and the background of the criminals and ringers brought in by the DNC in a failed attempt to bring down Trump's campaign. Probably worth about £10.99 at best, but not full RRP. will be an excellent historical resource in years to come though.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would strive for a more objective view of the Trump campaign and election.Stone seems to think that Trump walks on water and any criticism of him is fearmongering by a 'far-left elite' (his term). His view is made very clear when discussing the other GOP candidates; he makes it clear that at least three (Trump included) had no previous electoral experience but then says that Trump was the 'only true outsider' with little explanation of what he means by this. I wanted a fair assessment, and it is interesting to hear a pro-Trump view, but is so clearly a devotee of Trump that his view very quickly becomes tiresome. At one point, he even suggests that Trump was sent by God to fix America's economy!
Would you recommend The Making of the President 2016 to your friends? Why or why not?
I would. It is interesting as a 'first draft' of history written by an insider but it's claims need to be taken with a large pile of salt.
Have you listened to any of BJ Pottsworth’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I haven't but he does a very good job here, he's an engaging reader.
Do you think The Making of the President 2016 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Yes, either an insider view of the Clinton campaign or a more holistic and objective view of the election as a whole.

fascinating insight into the events leading up to Trump's election but gets long winded after a while...it's not an exciting read but I'd recommend it if you're just interested in what was happening behind the scenes....
