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.
Soon, the book's title becomes the reader's prayer.
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.
Little known fact: the title of this book refers to a plate of spaghetti.
Nobody cares about Christie - he ruined any credibility he had once he jumped on the Dump train.
