Summary

The former Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison in the Trump White House provides a jaw-dropping look into the corruption and controversy of the current administration.

Few have been a member of Donald Trump’s inner orbit longer than Omarosa Manigault Newman. Their relationship has spanned 15 years - through four television shows, a presidential campaign, and a year by his side in the most chaotic, outrageous White House in history. But that relationship has come to a decisive and definitive end, and Omarosa is finally ready to share her side of the story in this explosive, jaw-dropping account.

A stunning tell-all and takedown from a strong, intelligent woman who took every name and number, Unhinged is a must-listen for any concerned citizen.

Not enlightening

Too little and WAY too late. Is like a long CV / apology for endorsing you know who.

Unhinged seems to describe Omarosa or Trump

Not a Trump fan but this book is just ridiculous and Omarosa seems to be very, VERY self absorbed. In addition she just seems to go off on little rants and spends a lot of time blowing her own trumpet (pardon the pun!) and because of that she doesn’t do her valid points justice. For example I’m not sure there’s any need for her autobiography to be telling us what designer dress she wore to an emmys over a decade ago (pink fuschia, blah blah blah in case you cared)

Her speaking is clear however her occasional Trump impressions are just stupid, awful and are simply unnecessary.
Her performance is also belittled by her seemingly trying to add emotion to certain areas but it just comes across as though someone is reading to a child and is pretty poor. When she isn’t doing that though her reading is good.

Personally I would recommend avoiding this book...if you’re looking for a decent Trump-linked book check out Comeys “a higher loyalty” which is MUCH better.

Very disappointed!

Self serving, selfish, doesn’t care about your nation, now shame, and I’m not even talking about Trump! Good insight into another deplorable White House person who would still be there if she hadn’t been sacked!

Interesting but includes a Full Resume

It was certainly difficult to ignore the resume being promoted throughout the book, but an interesting listen none the less.

More about Omarosa's desire for success than Trump

I had expected to read about an Unhinged President, instead it was ramblings about how Omarosa was shocked, saddened, or troubled by Trump's actions until she is offered a new position of power within the Trump hierarchy.

Probably the worst of the Trump books thus far, really looking forward to Bob Woodward's Fear, save you money.

A fair holiday read

interesting but not compelling. not sure I always believed her motivations. came across sometimes as covering uncomfortable tracks to rewrite her history with Trump now that she is distancing herself from him.

Good to get an insiders perspective on the White House

Omarosa does a great job with the story and provides some interesting nuggets. The listener can’t help but empathise with her experiences. The voiceover is particularly entertaining with the Trump mimic!

An interesting read

Not knowing who Omarosa is particularly I wondered if her villain status was deserved. after reading I think she demonstrates credibility in her reporting of the WH organisation. She also reads it well... good pace and lively enough.
worth a listen for an insight but some of those self-worthy-in-the-face-of-all-others passages do reduce credibility a bit.

Great Audible book...

Well written and narrated by the author. Glad Omarosa is on the side of good now. Trump and Pence must be removed from office. Clearly this book is a first hand account of Trump's steep mental decline since gaining office.

I have to listen to this a second time

This is a gripping story. So sad this is real in the US at this time. The political angst in my country pales into insignificance compared to the waste of energy spent in damage control with a deranged mad man at the helm. His reign is a great lesson to the world. Omarosa is a gutsy lady.

This woman is a spy

This woman is fooling no one. Posing as some black rights martyr when in fact she leaks for trump. Arrogant, self important, delusional. A most irritating book.
