Publisher's Summary

Maureen Dowd's incendiary takes and takedowns from 2016 - the most bizarre, disruptive and divisive Presidential race in modern history.
Trapped between two candidates with the highest recorded unfavorables, Americans are plunged into The Year of Voting Dangerously. In this perilous and shocking campaign season, The New York Times columnist traces the psychologies and pathologies in one of the nastiest and most significant battles of the sexes ever. Dowd has covered Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton since the '90s. She was with the real estate mogul when he shyly approached his first Presidential rope line in 1999, and she won a Pulitzer Prize that same year for her penetrating columns on the Clinton impeachment follies. Like her best-sellers, Bushworld and Are Men Necessary?, The Year of Voting Dangerously will feature Dowd's trademark cocktail of wry humor and acerbic analysis in dispatches from the political madhouse. If America is on the escalator to hell, then The Year of Voting Dangerously is the perfect guide for this surreal, insane ride.

Misleading Title

This book was poorly written and overly repetitive. It was less tied to the title that to the writer's narcissism. I would not recommend to others regardless of political leanings.

Disappointing and redundant.

What disappointed you about The Year of Voting Dangerously?

I was so excited that there was a new book out by Maureen Dowd. I had no idea it was merely a compilation of her columns, which I have already read. Nevertheless, I started to listen - but had to stop after so many key phrases were repeated in several places. It was positively distracting.

Has The Year of Voting Dangerously turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I enjoy books on politics.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes - though I admit I was listening on 1.25.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I cannot recommend the book to anyone. If they have been reading Dowd, there is nothing new here. If they are new to her, the repeated phrases and anecdotes will still stand out.
