None Dare Call It Conspiracy will be a very controversial book. At first, it will receive little publicity, and those whose plans are exposed in it will try to kill it by the silent treatment. For reasons that become obvious as you listen to this book, it will not be reviewed in all the "proper" places or be available on your local book stand. However, there is nothing these people can do to stop a grassroots book distributing system.

It’s alright on in the back ground. But it heavily centred around America land of the free thinking and seems a bit dated.

Here is Trump in action—how he runs his organization and how he runs his life—as he meets the people he needs to meet, chats with family and friends, clashes with enemies, and challenges conventional thinking. But even a maverick plays by rules, and Trump has formulated time-tested guidelines for success. He isolates the common elements in his greatest accomplishments; he shatters myths; he names names, spells out the zeros, and fully reveals the deal-maker's art. And throughout, Trump talks—really talks—about how he does it.

The great Norse myths are woven into the fabric of our storytelling - from Tolkien, Alan Garner and Rosemary Sutcliff to Game of Thrones and Marvel Comics. They are also an inspiration for Neil Gaiman's own award-bedecked, best-selling fiction. Now he reaches back through time to the original source stories in a thrilling and vivid rendition of the great Norse tales.

Thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook, well read and entertaining. The reader lays down just enough background then goes straight into the tales. Before I knew it we were at the end.
Very recommended.

Trump triggered massive cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias on both the left and the right. We're hardwired to respond to emotion, not reason. We might listen to 10 percent of a speech - a hand gesture here, a phrase there - and if the right buttons are pushed, we decide we agree with the speaker and invent reasons to justify that decision after the fact. The point isn't whether Trump was right or wrong, good or bad. Win Bigly goes beyond politics to look at persuasion tools that can work in any setting.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Less ego more story. More objectivity and less sob story would be nice.

Who was your favorite character and why?

None

Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Adams?

Probably not, I was going to get his previous book but by the end of this I don't think I could handle any more. The writer spends a lot of time telling the reader they are misinformed and that he is rich and that he a master persuader who gets it right.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Nope.

Any additional comments?

There seems to be a lot of pro Trump talk in this is, fine if you want that. But I thought this was going to be a how to of sorts. So much self congratulation, it was hard to take. I had to force myself to listen through and gleam out the info I wanted. I would say its worth a listen but it's hard going. It has pointed me to some other books. I'm kind of sorry I wasted that time on this but if you don't try you'll never know. Best try the Robert B. Cialdini book.
