You either like or despise Republicans. It's interesting to see the comments and you can tell how hates Republicans and who doesn't. I found this book to be very informative and it cleared up some questions about Christ Christie. It's noble that he endorsed Trump when he knew he himself couldn't win. And he's right, a Hillary won was unthinkable. Make up your own mind about this book. However, it's a must read for all.
I found this book to be much better than the normal political memoir. An interesting thing is his lambasting of Bob Woodward and his book 'Fear,' which I also read. Christie contradicts some pretty important stuff from 'Fear' and at one point refers to it as 'fictionalized version.'
If you read 'Fear' you should read 'Let Me Finish' too.
An interesting read. You can hear Christie's voice come through as if he were speaking rather than writing. That being said, Christie is a blowhard who has an ego as big as his girth. From this book you would think that he single handedly won the election for Trump. I was also disappointed at his ethical standards by his comments on page 199: "Stopping Hillary the Democratic front runner, from being president was one of the biggest reasons for me to run. To me her judgment was suspect. So was her honesty."
So he supported Trump instead?! Talk about moral dissonance!
I found the book mostly to be self serving but at the same time interesting. Living in New Jersey I am familiar with Christie's rise and fall from grace, but I did not know his background . Christie never criticizes Trump directly, and his hatred and distrust for Kushner and Bannon (both well deserved) is obvious from the beginning, Christie takes credit for all the positive events during the campaign but is quick to place blame on everyone else but himself when it comes to any of the train wreck issues involving this White House. Sorry, but you can't have it both ways. Friendship does tend to make you more accepting but in Christie's case he is totally blind.
Even tho we are on opposite ends of the political spectrum, I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to hear his view from the Trump campaign. He may have puffed up a little about how his ideas helped when they were followed , although he certainly knew more than most of the people on the campaign. He certainly appreciates his family and seemed to have loved his work as US Attorney. He offers an interesting view of Jared--although they were not best friends by any means. What annoys me about Christie is his "in your face politic style" I think of it more as in your face rudeness toward the people he works for. As a public servant , the voters are his boss not the other way around. He is however a good communicator.
Soon, the book's title becomes the reader's prayer.
Chris Christie is a human-shaped barnacle, desperately clinging to Trump in the hopes that he might somehow further his career in the process. He is like a dog under the dinner table, salivating and waiting for a scrap of cheese to fall. Christie is devoid of integrity and would probably kick his own mother down the stairs for a chance to nab the pennies and the miscellaneous trash that flew out of her pockets.
self serving white wash of trump blaming all on bannon and especially jarad while Christie knew all but no one would listen to him. waste of time
That below comment is one of the funniest I've ever read on the website. Poor Chris Christie, another tragic white man who just wants to talk.
