The best part about this audio book is that Donna Brazile narrates it herself. The worst part about this audio book is that Donna Brazile narrates it herself. This may sound contradictory but it isn’t.

The storyline is one we have heard over and over and over since the election, and before. We heard the crying and whining from both parties about who did what to who and who didn’t do anything to anyone, right? Like many of us, I am really sick and tired of hearing about it, and wish we could just get on with whatever it is that we have got to deal with and move on. But if you aren’t, this may be a book you will embrace.

Donna Brazile was the DNC chairman during the Hillary Trump election campaign and, having come to the job late, picking up the pieces and trying to put Humpty Dumpty together again, she deserves credit. But somewhere in between the beginning and the end of this tell all, she loses steam and credibility. It slowly becomes a tell all about me and my troubles and quickly whines to a halt.

Brazile tells of the campaign strategies, DNC candidate troubles, Clinton personality problems, how she slowly became a target of her own party and the HACKS that changed the course of history, in her opinion.

I would tell you to listen to this tale with an open mind and a big dose of discernment. Whether you are a Trump fan or a Hillary supporter, I think you will come away with an interesting look at the behind-the-scenes operation of the American election system. Something we could all benefit from. As for Donna Brazile, not surprising, a little exasperating, and too much “poor me” woven into this yarn.
