In the greatest intelligence operation in the history of the world, Donald Trump was made president of the United States with the assistance of a foreign power. For the first time, The Plot to Destroy Democracy reveals the dramatic story of how blackmail, espionage, assassination, and psychological warfare were used by Vladimir Putin and his spy agencies to steal the 2016 US election. It will show how Russia and its fifth column allies tried to flip the cornerstones of democracy in order to reengineer the world political order that kept most of the world free since since 1945....

We are all storytellers - through stories, we make sense of our lives. But it is not enough to tell tales. There must be someone to listen. In his work as a psychoanalyst, Stephen Grosz has spent the last 25 years uncovering the hidden feelings behind our most baffling behaviour. The Examined Life distils over 50,000 hours of conversation into pure psychological insight, without the jargon. This extraordinary book is about one ordinary process: talking, listening, and understanding.

I was actually recommended this book by my consultant Neurologist. Once an able bodied person who 4 years ago became confined to a bed and then wheelchair , I was told my disability was a result of trauma to the brain. I was told to read this to help me understand. 4 years ago I was emotionally abused in my marriage. Little did I know that the abuse in my marriage would lead me back 20 years ago where I was sexually abused by an uncle. Triggering a trauma that led to a physical disability. Unable to walk. After much learning and reading and understanding I am learning to walk again. I know why he recommended it. This book tells of experiences of people who end up in psychoanalysis where behind every persons individual story, there is an underlying reason of which mostly comes as a surprise to them. Like mine.

When he stepped down in January 2017 as the fourth US Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper had been President Obama's senior intelligence advisor for six and a half years, longer than his three predecessors combined. He led the US Intelligence Community through a period that included the raid on Osama bin Laden, the Benghazi attack, the leaks of Edward Snowden, and Russia's influence operation on the 2016 US election.

From his life of service, to his dedication to intelligence, to truth to power! Listened to Jim Clappers book and could not stop. I learnt so much about how intelligence reporting has progressed and how you may not always like not being in the know but how I'd rather not be and just be in the know that good hardworking men and women are behind the scenes protecting democracy and protecting citizens. Huge respect for the man himself.
