Summary

From the moment Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the White House until very late on election night, media and pollsters kept insisting Trump wouldn't - couldn't - be president. But for Larry Schweikart - one of a ragtag group of amateur politicos called the "Deplorables", who had been publishing shockingly accurate polls and predictions, and Joel Pollak, a senior editor at Breitbart News following Trump on the campaign trail - Trump's 2016 win was a near certainty. Schweikart and Pollak watched the Trump campaign build a powerful coalition of working Americans from both parties; they saw the momentum that the mainstream media and pollsters completely missed. Now, in How Trump Won, they tell the whole incredible story, from the early poll predictions to the campaign trail and on to election night.

OK but disjointed and repetitive.

A little disjointed and the the countless journalist reports from Trump campaign rallies feel repetitive. Still, a decent listen overall, and some great insights into Trump's rise to the Presidency, though I preferred Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes' Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign, and Doug Wead's Game of Thorns. If you've enjoyed to those two, you'll enjoy How Trump Won too.

Wonderful content, horrid narrator (😬)

I really enjoyed the inside story to the shocking upset. However if I could give the narrator an honest rating it would be in the negative. I genuinely hate giving narrators bad reviews but he ruined it with his inflections and snarky reading of this book.

Highly Entertaining

This is a very entertaining book. Usually when you have two authors you only hear one voice. Instead you get to hear both authors separately talking about the same story from two different perspectives. Given the highly unusual nature of the 2016 campaign this is a very good way to get the true sense of the enormity of the event. Enjoy!

Insights into the Improbable

An entertaining 3rd party perspective to probably the biggest upset of my lifetime. While still baffling, the book to the underlying perspectives and unusual operations that beget the Trump administration.

Intriguing Summary

Epic behind the scenes details of the most controversial and unpredictable election in my lifetime. It helps explain why this was the most exciting presidential bid, probably in history.
