User reviews about this book
An incredible book from a credible journalist
Disclosure: I’ve done work with MSNBC and indirectly with Katy Tur (we don’t know each other). Her book is not only a well-documented, fact-based chronicle of political history, but also a fun look at the wilder days of L.A. TV and radio news, which she literally grew up around. She shares a good deal of her personal experiences dealing with monumental change in her career and life, just as Washington began to face some monumental change of its own. A delight to read from cover to cover.
I loved this book and couldn't put it down. A unique bird's-eye view of what really happened. Well written
Personal diary of the election
Not what I was expecting. Not much political analysis. Read Hillary’s book. Far more insightful.
Get to know what’s behind it all
Am so weary of seeing or hearing about DJT, but really loved spending time with this book. It is satisfying in every way and utterly engaging. Perfectly structured, a most unique perspective, and absolutely everything you want to know. Katy Tur is my new hero—scrappy, shrewd, ambitious, self-revealing and grounded. I appreciated her on the trail, her look, her voice, her demeanor, and this book fills in everything behind the scenes. The chapter on her parents is gold, as are the gracious acknowledgments at the end.
Refreshing that the author is so honest about her disdain for everything American. The author is very shallow and out of touch with the average americans that she looks down on. "...after a Trump campaign event, my cameraman and I felt threatened at a Panera's Bread, it seemed that everyone was looking at us. We ran out as fast as we could and headed back to NYC, abandoning our barely touched salads." Tur cries heartbrokenly when NBC execs suggest that she move back to the U.S. to cover the campaign (she had been commuting from London for months).
Great book. Katy Tur’s story is so honest and timely. The morning news is filled with the President’s national anthem remarks and the reactions. We voters had to see this nonsense coming. Katy Tur gives a first-hand account of what happened during the campaign. She deserves our thanks and I hope that the book is a huge best-seller.
View of the Biased
Wonder if this Author was a Clinton fan. Perhaps she should have followed the underside looking for dirt on any other candidate. If she dug deep enough she would find even more unbelievable filth.
Politics is a dirty business biased reporting with agendas is almost as dirty. This is a book of hate by the left...just another example.
Well written and a great fact writer. :)

This book by Katy Tur is a great read. Pace is quick and the reader can feel the emotions of a reporter on the road ,meeting deadlines, writing headlines, staying on top of the latest news and developments in a presidential campaign. The author is a bright, articulate news woman and creative story teller.
It has been a positive experience reading her revelations and documentation over months of being on the campaign trail.
