For more than 25 years, David Nott has taken unpaid leave from his job as a general and vascular surgeon with the NHS to volunteer in some of the world’s most dangerous war zones. From Sarajevo under siege in 1993 to clandestine hospitals in rebel-held eastern Aleppo, he has carried out lifesaving operations and field surgery in the most challenging conditions, and with none of the resources of a major London teaching hospital.

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....

So the writer is trying to blame every single problem in the western political atmosphere on the Russians, he talks very highly of American values (although nowadays I am not very sure what that means).
His view of international American policy (in my view) is very naive- typical: we are the good guys and they are the bad ones- the USA is certainly just another country that has to fight to protect its own interests around the world using different excuses to affect how things are run on international arena (using freedom, democracy, other big words as a guise to hide the intentions)
Russian policy and American one have the same goals, they use similar means but call them different names!

Eating is an indispensable human activity. As a result, whether we realize it or not, the drive to obtain food has been a major catalyst across all of history, from prehistoric times to the present. Epicure Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin said it best: "Gastronomy governs the whole life of man."

I was about to stop listening half way through the book, there were some inaccuracies when it came to talk about the Middle East!
The last third of the book was the most enjoyable one.
