Jeff Bezos, the new owner of the Washington Post is not going to like that, especially after Hillary chews him out.
From the book review:
By the time I finished this book, I resented its existence.
“Stronger Together,” ostensibly written by Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine — they are listed as authors and each provides a brief, first-person introduction explaining how hard their parents worked, and a brief, first-person conclusion explaining how hard they themselves work — is a self-confessed cut-and-paste job of campaign fact sheets, speeches and op-eds. That sets rather modest expectations. Yet, even by that standard, and the low bar for candidates’ campaign books overall, “Stronger Together” is an embarrassment, sloppy, repetitive, dutiful and boring. This is a book that, 237 pages in, actually thanks readers for making it that far.
I don’t understand why this book was compiled — “written” is too generous a verb — or why it was published. If you really want to dive into the Clinton/Kaine promises and proposals, the campaign website awaits you. You don’t need to wade through this book. No one does. No one should. The only people I imagine reading it are future fact-checkers, masochistic book critics and the most strung out of political junkies.Ouch.
This book was slapped together, barely edited and placed before us quickly, as if to cross one more item off a to-do list, or meet some overwhelming yet imaginary demand. But why rush a book no one’s going to read?
As an antidote, I think I will send him a copy of a real good book on Campaign 2016. Mine. It's a fun read. Hillary is averaging 1.6 on a scale of one to five at Amazon. I'm at 4.97 because "Trump the Press" is the best thing I have ever written, and I made my living writing for 40 years. The book is a look at how the political elites blew the Republican nomination process this year.
I am in the same Kindle category as Hillary. She was No. 1. Sunday afternoon, I was at No. 11 without a big name, a billion-dollar presidential campaign, and no marketing beyond my blog -- and a few key book reviewers. I thank loyal readers for their encouragement, their support, and their reviews. I trust that I rewarded them with 254 pages of pleasure.
Please purchase "Trump the Press" through Create Space.
The book also available in Kindle and as a paperback on Amazon.
